    Had my interior revamped by the guys at oCarbon in the States. Amazing job, very professionally executed. While the interior trim was in the works, I ordered CF steering wheel, control button covers and shift knob from Mansory. Wasn't sure if CF was going to match but it all blended in nicely.

    Very happy with the outcome. The look and feel is very OEM, I can't praise it enough. I recommend oCarbon to anyone who wants an quality job for very reasonable money. Email matt@ocarbon.com for a quote.

    Did you have to remove all the trim and send off? Looks good.

    Looks fantastic Alex:thumb:

    Really freshens the interior making it look much sharper and modern. Looks a lovely finish too. That's got me thinking about my interior now! I saw Paul Lopes' E55 with his carbon trim and it looked so much better than the stock trim.

    Thanks. Yes, had to remove all the trim. Fiddly but not difficult if you follow Mercedes WIS instructions.

    Thanks Simon, a big change to the old wood veneer. Found a couple of photos of what it was like before:

    LOOKS GREAT!!! getting mine hydro dipped and lacquered next week in silver carbon effect and find this really does freshen up the whole interior look, the black finish co-ordinates well with your the light coloured interior... as mine is all dark, I have opted for the silver carbon effect...

    Gorgeous mate. I went for the Brabus carbon in the end, looks absolutely stunning. Another job to do to the SL sometime.

    Must admit do fancy changing the current aluminium for carbon fibre just dont fancy the hassle of having to get it taken out then sending away and putting back again.

    Really makes it a lot more modern Alx. Looks brilliant excellent job. Do you have the instructions on removing the parts?

    Having seen this car in the flesh I can confirms that it looks sensational.

    Actually better than the photos. :)

    Got your seat badges back yet Alex?

    Hi Dave. Yes, the badge is back where it should be, so is the seat. Not the easiest of jobs that was!

    It's not particularly difficult to remove the trim. Most of it, like centre console for example, is removable for accessing the Comand, A/C, etc. Just make sure you order new sets of clips, circlips, treenails to replace the old ones.

    Thanks. PM me your address and I'll email you a set of Mercedes instructions for our CL.

    This thread has actually amazed me ! When I read Mansory in the title , I thought 'oh no......' Seeing as everything I have seen of Mansory in the past has been the epitome of bad taste , footballers cars and 'desert bling'

    But , this looks incredible , a real improvement over the original , really really nice !

    Good job :thumb:

    I've got a New Year's promotional offer from oCarbon which is unlikely to be repeated even for CL owners. The job was quoted based on pictures and the size turned out to be heavily underestimated. Despite the difference, oCarbon stood behind the original quote, which was very nice of them. Shoot Matt an email to get an accurate pricing - the quality of their work is 1st class, you won't be disappointed.

    Thanks Howard. I found Mansory to be very customer-oriented so I suspect if people want desert bling, desert bling they shall have. Have a look at the video below, it gives a little insight into Mansory craftsmanship, which is outstanding:
