I'd be interested in seeing those when you do get them done - the air vents sound interesting, I'd never thought of doing them.. I've just sent them an email now for a quote. I want the carbon look to match the centre console and steering wheel carbon on my Gransport as much as possible, so I will see what they come back with.
i have the GS steering wheel on my car and this should be a really good match. My air vents went sticky so i removed the black surface but now they feel really cheap and nasty (which i guess they are). i've seen them in carbon and i quite like the look but it's more complex coating a moving part.
I asked about durability and was told should be very tough, obviously don't put your keys on it!
It's a really high gloss finish and difficult to take good pictures without getting loads of reflections but here's a few more fitted as a demo before I refit for real.
Any guesses how much it cost to do both pieces?
Just had these back from Wicked Coatings. Excellent job. For my E63 AMG daily, car has carbon pack 2 option but not sill trims which are part of carbon pack 1. From memory genuine CF trims from MB were about Â£2.5k. Purchased these in black gloss from MB and sent for Hydrodip. All in cost a shade under Â£500. Rear diffuser and front apron to do over the summer when GS out of storage.
