I was hoping you wouldn't have noticed.
Would you like them back? I promise that's only a tiny curb scuff on it!

I just invested in a machine polisher. I have spent the last 6 months watching youtube videos on detailing and today was the first attempt. I was able to borrow the loading dock at work. Unfortunately in my condo parking garage I have no power.

Here is some pictures of my 2003 S430 that I bought this summer. It has a little more than 142K miles on it and it's still the most pleasant car I have ever drove. Happy owner here 🙂

I upgraded all the exterior bulbs for LEDs, you can see them on picture 5 and 6, but I'll take better shots soon. I bought the car with black rims (photos 1 and 2) but it currently sits on AMG wheels (photo 3) that I took from my parts car, a black 2000 S430 (photo 5 &#x1f601. What do you think looks the best ?

Yeah me too ! At first I wasn't really sure but now I think it looks much better. The black ones are cool too, but the paintwork looks cheap. I'll probably keep them for winter tires.

I like the silver rims on the silver car. The black rims look best on the black car.
