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, Cleaning The Belly Pans

After changing the oil, I was left with 3 dirty belly pans. Actually, the first one was pretty clean. But the 2nd & 3rd were really dirty due to oil leaking and dirt accumulating on that oil.

But a good degreaser and pressure washer work wonders. I totally forgot to take ‘after” pictures, so you will have to believe me on this one 😉

1st belly pan (pretty clean)
2nd belly pan, which was quite dirty. nfortunately, it has 1 broken air diverter
3rd belly pan, this was really dirty!

Volvo S80 2.4T Dirty / Clean Turbo Coldside

Replaced the air filter and the turbo intake pipe. Please note that a dirty intake might also point out a badly functioning PCV system!

The intake pipe was upgraded to a blue Do88.se / Do88 silicone intake pipe, which is a fair bit larger, but also deletes some bottlenecks from the original part (like the narrowing bend on the bottom and the “harmonica”).

Gives a little bit more power from the butt dyno and noticed more intake growl (which is a good thing) 🙂
