Got it dirty.

When I viewed the car it was raining, when we collected it is was a miserable wet murky day so I never got a real good look at the body paint. After hand washing it (with shampoo) I am very pleased to say there is not a mark on the paint, only one wheel arch with about 2" strip of flacking paint. I am afraid this will be dealt with before the SL500's wheel arches

She is indeed a beauty! Looks lovely and clean and gleaming.

Great wheels.

Good news about the boot seals too.

That sounds good, new back and bum warmers, we noticed last night that, only the back warmer is working on my car and the drivers seat doesn't seem to work at all, is it a DIY job?
