What have you done with or to your C63 today?

I'm surprised I haven't seen one of these threads on here yet. They are very popular on some of the other forums I'm part of.

Tell us what you've done with or to your C63 today - It can be anything such as washing/detailing the vehicle, taking it for a spin around the block, or added on new mods, etc. Pictures welcome.

I'll start.. I took out mine today to meet up with some friends for lunch.

Your BS looks fantastic.

Drenched my front seats in Leatherique oil to sit for the next couple of hot days here, cleaned my Alcantara steering wheel and gear shift with Sonax, reinstalled my glovebox (was part of a failed attempt to remove the dashboard), continued to mock up front bumper dive planes.

This was yesterday, but... who's keeping count? Installed my ROW airboxes. I love it, only regret is not doing this mod sooner.

I took mine for a drive on CA HWY 198 west of Coalinga where Motor Trend tests cars. That road is pretty epic. There are lots of blind corners, off camber corners, and mid corner bumps. It definitelt keeps you on your toes. The car did better than the driver. The weather was perfect to keep the windows open and hear the exhaust echo in the hills. It did get pretty hot. Oil temps got into the 240s and sometimes touched 250 where I cooled the car on long straights. So much fun.

Thank you! Much appreciated. Needless to say yours is looking awesome with the recent additions. Keep us posted on the dive plane project!

For the leather you can also look into Leather Masters or Swissvax Leather Milk. Havenít used them personally, but know others who rave about it. Good for those in between treatments of Leatherique. I donít really benefit from my Leatherique kit anymore since the BS doesnít have any real leather surfaces.

Oh man I totally forgot about the dashboard project!! I thought you had some parts wrapped in Alcantara last time I checked? Did something not work out?

I gave up halfway through. You wouldn’t believe how involved it is to take off the dash man. EVERYTHING has to come out, it’s intense. I just don’t have that kind of patience, maybe later this summer. I should probably start by wrapping my spare dash and seeing how that turns out, maybe that will motivate me. But, you know, once I have the dash off I might as well finish stripping the entire interior. That’s how much I’ll feel like not reinstalling everything.

I took a picture of my car because the sun was hitting it a certain way and I liked it (just cleaned over weekend). Then I drove it to work lol.

Aw man, yea once people started sharing diagrams I knew it would be a hassle. At least with the spare dash it wouldn't be too bad, but then again like you mentioned pulling it out is ridiculous.

TBH the dash shouldn't even have come like that in the first place, at least for the c63's.

What brand tint and percentage? Iíve been contemplating this for years, but always worried about it distorting my vision.
