    I didn't - they're Jura off-shore bags made by Montrose Rope and Sail I really can't recommend them enough. Very strong, pretty much waterproof (ideal for an SL or SLK...:rolleyes:) - made in Scotchland

    I don't mind paying, I don't like paying twice :)

    On a slightly related note I also use Keela Outdoor Clothing - its not a fashion brand, the logo is almost invisible - however if you're after proper outdoor clothing that works and lasts for years then again I can't recommend them enough.

    Nothing folded in half!, the 61 ltr bag fits longitudinal with the 2 x 44 ltrs next to it. I've another 61 ltr which I could put on the right with a 44 ltr in the middle but don't need to carry that much stuff.

    Having spent >30 years packing bags I'm pretty adept at it... keeping clothes flat and breakables safe and unbroken:).

    if you can get a finger nail into any scratch it wont buff out , you could still try a Lacquer pen though , fill it in before you resort to painting ?

    Cleared the EML on the dash of the 500 with my £10 OBD reader. Gosh who would have thought this cheap reader could do this kind of thing on a Mercedes.
    It showed 4 codes, all relating to each Cat....So erased, now good again :D
    Mine you this is the second time the EML has come on, I used the same reader last September, but can't remember the fault. :rolleyes:

    Thank you kind sir:D

    I used 2000 grit wet and dry with water lubricant followed by low speed drill/attachment and the Meguiars Headlamp polishing kit. It comes up well but isn't really noticable until the clear laquer that is supplied is sprayed on.
    The kit is around £17 from Halfords.
    To be fair, I think the same finish can be achieved just using the wet and dry paper followed by a good polish and sealing with clear laquer. Took about an hour including masking the lights.
