Ok, I've read it all. Zaino, Shmaino, cleaning 73's and so on.
I've even saw something I didn't want to see (Alan F - thanks %)

Now - Do you clean interior ??? Nobody ever said anything about that...Oh you show-offin' ..... whoever! :))

Inside and outside... the only thing I haven't done is the engine bay, but I have a feeling that's next on my list. :)

I spend WAY more time on the interior than the exterior... I'm just not anal about my paint but when it comes to the leather and dash etc... Let's just say, when the car is spent and is sent off to the crusher, the interior will still look new.

After all I spend most of the time sitting in the car, not on it...

Interior pics are so much easier in a CIC.

I know this is hard to believe but I am going to defend alee on this one...Alex you are showing your BACK mats...does anyone actually ever sit back there?? :D

I don't think Al lets anyone sit in his car at all but he has to drive it occasionally!! :rolleyes:

hey Al...you're missing a pedal?? :confused:

:D

Alee - Actually I was going to....but I'm late as usual :)

Alex325 - Mine's tidier :) No bags lying 'round :)

Don't be so negative, just because you don't know me doesn't mean I was trying to poke you :)
I was actually going to ask you guys what stuff you use to clean interior...Zaino goes on top, I got that :) What goes inside ?

Have you got PDC? Just noticed the 4th button on your console. Wow, your ride really IS loaded.

I was trying to be sarcastic... Unfortunately, there's no :rolleyes: message icon...

I use Meguiar's Natural Shine Vinyl & Rubber Protectant.

Left to right...

Heated Seat, DSC, HK, Rear Sunshade and then Heated Seat again.

I'm missing 2 buttons... RDC and Sport. We all know what car those come on. :D

But yeah, I did get every option :)

Hey Mike...watchit....

I may be older than you but I'm no grandpa...I love my PDC. Great for parking, stopped me from running over my son's skateboard, let me know my dog ran behind my car as I was going into the garage and my car is always perfectly parked in the garage both at work and home (I back in). Don't knock it till ya tried it :D

P.S. Because I shifted to Neutral (disengaging PDC) while backing up in an unfamiliar driveway I ended up with this...

However, I now look like this...

Hopefully no one takes it seriously or is offended by any of it...

It only gets worse from here...PDC, smaller wheels for the softer ride, non-sport seats...too confining. There's hope though, my Dad's 77, drives a 2001 SLK320 and is in line for the new SL.

LOL!!! I was taught punch cards in Jr High for a year and a half. We were told it was going to help us when we graduate! (I use my punch cards skills every day now) :rolleyes: About the only thing it helped me with was realizing that hanging chads are a sign of the amble ... erm ... everything.

I wonder what other stuff I've forgotten that I was "going to use in real life"...:D
