The owner had a driver and was mainly concerned about the condition of the front driver seat which was noticeably more heavily soiled than the rest of the interior. The original light grey seats were now brown in color and we were called in to see if we could fix this problem.
A combination of leather cleaner and steam was used to clean all of the accumulated dirt and oils absorbed into the leather.
The rest of the interior was also detailed.
The rear control panel was also a real mess. The soft touch rubber coating had melted in the sweltering Malaysian weather and the panel was sticky to touch and looked terrible.
A few hours later....... better than new!!!

After removing the floor mats for a steam cleaning, the interior condition was assessed.
The driver's seat and door were the most heavily soiled so we started from there.
Taping off for a 50/50 on the seat.
A 50/50 was also done on the backrest.
The scuff marks on the trim on the front seat was also removed.
While I was cleaning the driver's side, KC tackled the passenger seat. The passenger seat was not as bad as the driver's seat but the difference before and after was also very obvious.
Now for the center console.
The soft touch coating of the center console was sticky and appears to have melted in our sweltering Malaysian weather. Apparently this is quite a common occurrence for Mercedes's manufactured around this time.
It was a horrible mess and certainly did not belong in an S-Class. After a lot of patience, a few hours and the right products, better than new...
While I tackled the rear seats and the center console, KC was busy cleaning up the rest of the interior.
Center arm rest.
Front passenger door.
Left rear passenger door.
Right rear passenger door.
The interior carpets were vacuum and steam cleaned also.
The carpets were also vacuumed and steamed.
Finally, the exterior was treated to an Optimum No Rinse (ONR) wash, sealed with Optimum Opti-Seal and protected by Optimum Car Wax.
Thanks for looking. Comments and feedback are most welcome.
