Car payments!?! What is that?
I have not had one of those since the mid 1990s.

Can you post some photos of the Black Out / Chrome Delete you did on all the trim... Looks nice! Also interesting on what colors of the interior led lighting go best with certain interiors. Like your choice..

Oh Boy! I just got rid of a new Denali XL. Hated it. Loving the S550, I have your twin except for I have porcelain seats. Everyone keeps asking what are you going to do about going to Home Depot and the dog?? I keep saying who cares we'll figure it out! LOL Well the dog will never see this car and neither will Home Depot! LOL I keep a sheet and a towel in the trunk just in case needed.........but not for flooring!!!!!! LOL. Good luck

I am looking to wrap my side trim as I think you did? I too would love to see a side pic with doors closed if you could? Thanks!

I would carry such stuffs on the Ford F350 if I had an option but let's say I would only have one car to do all of things to do then I would have S Class carry all the tasks

It's a CAR. Not a priceless stamp haha! I'd understand if you had a classic, but a brand new car? Sure, carry some stuff in it. It made my day when a neighbor asked me sarcastically if that's where I haul dirt.........and I said of course it is, it's a trunk x

Yeah this is a pretty rare situation. I usually have my primary contractor run everything in his truck but he was sick and I didn't want to postpone this project. I had a loaded F15 X5 50i prior to this and over the course of 3 years maybe used the cargo capacity twice.

Decent amount of pictures in the below thread. I still have to have my mirrors wrapped. Maybe the grill one day, they have all black ones on eBay for $205. I want to charcoal my wheels, add tint, LIGHT taillight smoke, and then do ceramic coating on the wheels/interior/exterior. Then I'm basically done.

I recently purchased a place and had a renovation done so I was constantly shuttling back and forth from supply stores.

I piled boxes upon boxes of tiles, hardwood, paint cans...you name it...in the trunk and rear seats of my 560. At the end of the day itís just a car; albeit a very expensive one.

However, for the really bulky items I used my (now) daily driver, a Range Rover Supercharged LWB

I own many income properties. 29 Units made up of single family homes, multi units, land and apartment complexes. Anything but a work van will not work for me. Plus where my wife and I live in NY and FL. That van gets lots miles and jobs done. I also keep my cars a long time and enjoy having them as perfect as then can be. Even a CPO MB is not cheap.

It is either me or him carrying. Most of the people who do work for me have huge trucks! Once in a while thou we cannot afford to postpone so we do what we need to do.

That's when I use my 1987 420 SEL for that type of hauling. Already has proved to be a work horse. I just be very careful when loading her to make sure I don't scratch the exterior or the interior. I wouldn't take that chance in my 2015 S550. But, sometimes we have to resort to the things we really don't want to.
