Mercedes CLS55 AMG W219, Black Wiper Filler Cap (Pre Facelift W211)

I always hate the bright blue caps for the wiper fluid and when there is an OEM option to change it something better, I am all ears 🙂

I was notified that the pre-facelift W211 E-class had a nice black & yellow cap instead of the ugly blue one. I was able to source used / second hand one for cheap. Retouched the yellow with some yellow caliper paint I had laying around and presto!

Partnr: 2118600064 / PUM22268

Yuck!

Looks way better, don’t you agree?



Mercedes CLS55 AMG W219, SL65 AMG Grille

Replaced the original CLS55 AMG 3 louvre grille with a single louvre Mercedes SL65 AMG type of grille. I didn’t expect the grille to make such a difference in looks. Very happy with the outcome!

The 1 louvre SL65 AMG type grille, looks way more modern and ties in better with the lower grille

Volvo S80 2.4T Diffuser

Added 2 diffusers to the rear bumper of the S80. Looks very nice and makes the S80 less of a Old Man car haha 🙂

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.

Volvo S80 2.4T Prancing Moose Decal

Bought me some yellow Prancing Mooses / Moose decal as it’s a Volvo thing to do 🙂

In the meantime, they have been replaced by black “carbon” units, which look better. This will be shown in a later post.

Volvo S80 2.4T Trunk Spoiler

Upgraded the rear with a trunk spoiler (stick-on type) and it looks quite OEM, which I am very pleased with. Doubt it will give me any extra noticeable downforce, but it looks the parts 🙂
