Fuses

Another tip for R class owners. I have an 08 R350.
(148K virtually trouble free miles )
Tip:
By no means ever store anything that may leak liquid, in the
rear storage area. The fuse box is located under the access
door for the spare tire and liquid will find its way into the compartment.
There is a cover of sorts over the fuse box but it didn't help much.
I found out the hard way when my cooler
full of ice started leaking water and shorted out a couple of fuses.
Fortunately is was minor and cost only $150 for the fix. My mechanic said it could of been much much worse !

Can you post pictures of the 22" wheels, are they AMG?
I was thinking of switching out my 18" to 20" or 21" or 22" - wasnt sure on the 22" due to right and handling.
