A shot of the CLS55 in the sunset, somewhere nearby to my home.




Mercedes CLS55 AMG W219, Leather Maintenance With Sonax Leather Care

After reading a whole bunch of positive reviews on Amazon about the Sonax Leather Care, I bought a bottle and went to work on the almost full leather interior of the CLS55. It worked well, the product was absorbed really fast, that leads me to believe it was really needed (as leather is a natural product).

Will be doing this every few months to get the most out of the interior!




Mercedes CLS55 AMG W219, Brabomeet 26-06-2022

I have been a member of the Seat forum Seat-Online.nl for quite some time and the Brabomeet is always a fun and nice small meet around Eindhoven. I made some pictures while I was there.

I love the timeless look of this car…

2 Videos were created, where you can hear the mighty V8 M113k Mercedes engine 🙂




Mercedes CLS55 AMG W219, Midlife Crisis Officially Started!

18th of May 2022, the day I became 40 years old and my mid life crisis officially began 😀




Mercedes CLS55 AMG W219, iCarsoft Diagnostics v3.0

A DIY mechanic wants and needs to know all about their car, and a proper diagnostics program/unit is therefore invaluable. I opted for the iCarsoft Diagnostics unit v3.0. I will probably look into Xentry/DAS in the near future, but having this small powerful device in the car is a godsend.

Its powered by the car, so essentially hassle free! Don’t forgot to update the unit using the software on the iCarsoft website.

NASCAR Whelen Euro Series Raceway Venray 07/14/2019

Visited the Raceway Venray last weekend to see the NASCAR Whelen Euro series. I always wanted to see NASCAR and I got lucky, as the Raceway Venray is only a 20 minute drive away from my home.

Enjoy this small compilation I created from that day. Filmed with a LG G5 smartphone. Image & sound have not been altered in any way.

Loris Hezemans claimed victory this day during the 9th race of the Euro series.

Volvo S80 2.4T Dirty vs New Airfilter

Replaced the air filter. This is what a dirty airfilter looks like.

Change it on time, so your car keeps performing at peak efficiency!

Volvo S80 2.4T Painting the Brake Calipers Daytona Yellow

Decided to paint the calipers for extra flair and to be honest it looks way better than that rusty brown color.

Bought some MHW Daytona Yellow paint and combined it with the yellow Prancing moose shield.
