So, my 06 bumper was just a complete mess. I bought the car in October '08. The hood and bumper were damaged from the previous owner, God knows what happened. The carfax was clean. When I bought the car, the hood and bumper were not that bad. It has just gotten progesssly worse. I can't do anything bout the hood, I will have to have it painted.

Now, I most likely need a new bumper, as it has been pushed somewhat to the driver's side and just having it painted won't fix that, BUT, I don't have the money for that now, so I wanted to fix the terrible road rash and rock chips on it.

I bought the Dr. Color Chip Road Rash Kit and wow........I have to say I LOVE it. I am going to buy another kit, as I ran out of paint. Last week I touched up the sides of the car. I did half the bumper this morning and then I did the other half this afternoon., but I knew I would run out of paint and I did. But I am pretty happy with the results and can't wait to order the other kit as I need to do my side view mirrors and I definitely want to re-do the entire front bumper. Also, underneath the driver's fog light, there were gouges that I just filled in with the paint last week and then went over today, but again, I ran out of paint, so the driver's side isn't completely done.

Thanks CT......As I said, I ran out of paint, so I really couldn't do my driver side as well as the passenger side. Hey, for $68 with shipping it will help for a bit until I can either have the bumper completely painted or have the money to buy an aftermarket one.

I think its an EZpass
i've never seen an EZ Pass like that before if that is one. normally, the EZ Pass just sticks to the upper portion of your windshield, behind the rear view mirror so you cant even see it when you're driving, and its a little 4x4" white plastic box.

They make both interior and exterior ones. I never knew they made them either until I was going through the tolls with a courtesy vehicle and the lady was yelling at me saying that I already paid. I didn't understand why, then I put two and two together.

Oh, that would make sense. There's a manager at my hotel who has a Black SL55 and it has one on it, but it runs to his dash mounted Radar detector/Laser Jammer. It's a rectangular box like that.

Yea I know exactly what you are talking about. Those ones are built into the dash are so awesome. Used to work at a Mercedes dealership and not too many built in radar cars came in.

not too bad! i might have to pick some of that stuff up for the little spots here and there that i have.
Newo...I def recommend it!!! I just bought another kit yesterday. As stated prior, I need to do my side view mirrors and I want to go over the bumper again. I am very pleased with the results.
