    Excellent results. I vowed after my last car never to have another black one.
    Although the Iridium silver is easier to live with, you just can't beat the dark colours for a high gloss finish. Great job. :thumb:

    Mot is not an indication that a vehicle is in roadworthy condition, a service is just an oil change and a quick poke around the engine by some snotty nosed apprentice. The white smoke is a clear indication of an issue with your vehicle, please spend your money on maintenance first before you start detailing it ..

    Looks really good, it must have taken hours to get it to that. Well done.

    It is a joke. The smoke is blue...and if it was head gasket failure it would be steam...and would not come out on first firing of the engine...Simzy...lie down in a quiet darkened room.

    the way you were gently caressing the curves with the cloth was ever so slightly pornographic though...

    ... and it's exactly what I do to mine!! :-D

    Did you fix the head gasket leak ?? I showed the video to my mechanic friend, he has worked for mercedes Cardiff for 10 years and he said it's definitely a head gasket leak somewhere . Hope you can fix the issue !!
