Yeah, quite like that. Looks clean, although it does look odd without the bonnet badge. I may have left that on.

Just as an aside, my chrome trim is starting to look a bit milky. Does anyone know if its chromed metal or chrome on plastic? Dont really want to get the metal polish on it if its the latter...

Hmm not sure at all- kind of glad I didn’t do mine now seeing that
Nice extras in the back for a family chap there- integrated booster seats, unusual
And I think its chrome on plastic but not sure

It’s a chromed plastic strip on a black anodised aluminium carrier usually.

I’ve never seen those built in boosters. They’re well ally.

Only just seen it :confused:

Do all E Classes have the built in kids seats????

They were an option at one time. Same as the rear pair in the boot of the estate, but not seen them on options list for a while.

Volvo are the pioneers in them.

My old S70 had a kiddy seat on the centre armrest.

That car had one of the best thought out interiors of any car I've owned.

Got one in my XC90 2nd row middle seat as part of the ‘family pack’, really brilliant. My only regret is not specifying all 3 middle row seats to be done (if I could)

Good interiors are a Volvo hallmark it seems.

Nice spec car. Don't like dechromed tailgate or grill but window surrounds look good plus removal of chrome door strips.
