Mercedes CLS55 AMG Detail

Today I am bringing you this Mercedes CLS55 AMG detail that was a treat to do. When this car is done right, there is no way this isn't going to turn heads as it rolls down the road!


The fabulous Mercedes CLS55 AMG

This is one of my top favorites from the Mercedes AMG line up. And having the car in this color only exaggerates the opulence and sportiness of this car!


The provocative lines of this AMG

I hope you are noticing the absence of any "spider webbing" along these luxuriously sculpted body lines. click here to read more from the insider on Spider Webbing and why this is not a good thing

This car is now 5 years old and is a daily driver that also hauls around two kids in the back; never mind escorting the wife in the front also.

I think you will be amazed at the possibility that the correct kind of car detailing products and techniques can provide, as this car definitely will highlight this for you.

I have been taking care of this car since day one and it has been on regular maintenance since the beginning.


Another angle of the amazing lines of this Mercedes CLS55 AMG Detail

I love the look of this car from any angle. This car made such an impact on the world with its unique look and proposition as the first four door sports car. I think you can see from these pictures as to why it was labeled as such.

Strong, athletic looking prowess is uncommon among the masses. You must be willing to spend some of your hard earned cash to be part of this elitist group that resides at the top tier of the food chain.

Wow! Sounds so arrogant...

But the fact remains, that money talks and everything else walks. Because you will have to be deep in the pockets to afford this kind of German engineering.


The horsepower producing plant of the Mercedes CLS55 AMG Detail

Here is a shot of the impeccably detailed AMG enhanced engine. AMG says one builder for every car. This is part of their attention to details, and below, you can see an added touch of the "details".


The technician signed engine plate

This is a close up of the nameplate that is signed by the single technician that assembles this AMG engine. Now we have the addition of a nameplate on the engine itself, to satisfy the discerning individual that doesn't mind making a public statement with their choice in cars.


Getting the "details" right by the designers at AMG

Above is a shot of the AMG embossed logo that is affixed to the seats within this amazing car. It is these kinds of details that set this car apart from the crowds.

Notice the combination of materials with the elegant use of suede and leather. Mercedes has always incorporated the finest of materials into their cars. One of the factors for the ability on my part to achieve the level of perfection when I detail the Mercedes' cars.


Check out the detailed door jambs of this Mercedes CLS55 AMG detail

Above is a shot into one of the meticulously detailed door jamb area that I am so fond of doing. I don't like seeing dirt of any kind while entering and exiting the drivers compartment.


A shot of the other meticulously detailed door jamb

And here is the shot of the opposing door jamb area for more of the fanatically clean door jamb area.

Let's go inside for a look at the drivers cock pit area.


The drivers area of this Mercedes CLS55AMG detail

Still amazing after all these years of daily use...and have a close look at the threshold area as this is an area that is very problematic with the various materials that are used by Mercedes. The threshold area is an area that see's its share of abuse from dirty feet that not only track the dirt in, but scuff up much of the plastics and other materials.

If you look closely, you can see the tale tell signs of wear and tear on the floor mat. There is a wear pattern worn into the mat where the heel rests while using the gas pedal. There is also slight fraying around the edges of the mat itself.


The fabulous Mercedes CLS55 AMG Detail

Check out the close up shot above to see the absence of any scuffs that usually are notoriously present on the lower half of the seat plastic. People tend to scuff this area pretty badly when entering the car. I have spent some time experimenting with technique and products to finally devise a system to remove these 100%.

I will add that I do not retouch any of these photos any where on my web site. The only retouching I do is do remove the license plate number/letters.

Below is a shot that shows the beautifully sculpted lines of this very aesthetically pleasing door panel. The fit and finish within the Mercedes line up is among the best in the industry. When you want to enjoy this level of opulence and sophistication, you will pay dearly as compared to other samplings.


The clean lines of the door panel of this Mercedes CLS55 AMG detail

Lets continue by going to the passenger side to see how that area is holding up...


A shot from the other side

More of the same amazing shape and clean in this area also...


The other door panel highlighting some detailing perfection within this Mercedes CLS55 AMG detail

I don't know why the coloring of the pictures is so different from shot to shot sometimes within the same car...the lighting has a dramatic effect to the finished product.

Lets look back into the rear of the seating area to see how that is holding up...


The not so spacious rear seating area

Look how great this area cleaned up!

Remember that this not only is a daily driver, but hauls two teenagers around as well. You can see that space in the rear is rather limited and as a result, this back threshold area gets plenty of abuse from negligent feet.


The rear seating area that houses the kids and their messes

Above is a shot from the opposing side to see more of the same perfection of this Mercedes CLS55 AMG detail.

I love all the styling put into this car with the way everything is designed and engineered to fit so elegantly together that makes for a very appealing visual reaction. You can also see in the above shot the opulence that has been crafted into the overall package with the wood that has been carried into the back compartment.

The seats themselves are a piece of art work in my opinion the way they have been designed and tailored with the fine materials.

We will go back outside for a look at the front wheel and see some of the exterior detail work and styling.


The AMG wheel done in chrome and detailed to perfection

We can see the massive chrome AMG wheels that come on these cars. Look within to see how clean the interior of the wheel is.

What People are Saying


You did an amazing job with our RV. I honestly cannot believe how great it looks. Seriously; it just looks so good!
Thank you!

Eddie L.
Rancho Santa Margarita, CA


Darren took my 9 year old Acura MDX and made it spectacular! I believe his knowledge and attention to "detail" goes above and beyond!
Thank you!

Craig Leitch
Foothill Ranch, CA


I'm somewhat of a car nut. Always have been and I don't mind it a bit. I also thought I had the very best detailer out there but boy did I blow that one. My son insisted I try Darren at Auto Fetish and I succumbed to the pressure and did. I did not realize what perfection looked like until Darren announced my car was completed. The depth of the shine, the attention to detail and the thoroughness of the work were well beyond any past experience. No question Darren really takes his work seriously and the customer reaps an enormous benefit. If you take pride in your wheels, Darren's the man!!
Larry T.
Huntington Beach, CA


Darren - Thank you for an honest quote over the phone, early arrival, and most importantly an outstanding detail job which restored my car back to excellent condition. The paint touch up looks great and my leather seats are super clean and sport a "new" conditioned look. Keep up the good work!
Bill C.
Fullerton, CA


Darren - I just got a call from my mom and she is really, really happy with her car! This is the reason I referred you as you are professional in all you do, so thank you. That car means more to her than her children; you have a customer for life!
Thank you again!

Andy
Placentia, CA


Darren - the scratch you fixed on my Mustang Cobra looks really, really good! Unless you are a professional car buyer you would not even notice it. It looks so much better than before; thank you!
Dennis A.
Anaheim Hills, CA


I spent considerable time looking for the right person to detail my 2007 Porsche Cayman-S (Black). I was impressed with the recommendations and accolades Darren received on his website including the samples of cars he had detailed. I was even more delighted after he finished detailing my car. It looked amazing; inside, outside, the wheels, everything. I will be using Darren for my detailing needs and will recommend him to the folks in my Porsche club.

I have been using Darren’s professional detail services, Auto Fetish Detail, for close to 15 years now and continue to do so. Darren has taught me and my staff just what real detailing is. Darren is incredibly meticulous and attentive to details. Whenever I have a customer who demands the best, I tell them to call Darren at Auto Fetish. I can always tell when Darren has detailed a car because the level of quality is like no other! He is not the cheapest guy in town, but you can’t beat the quality!

I have known and used Darren's services for 20+ years. I own Xlnt Tint of Anaheim inc. and see many cars every day. When we have a particular customer that needs top notch service, there is nobody else I would trust but Darren! He is very meticulous, and knowledgeable. If you are in need of someone who will take their time but most importantly bring over 20 years of hands on knowledge, this is the company for you.

"Wow! Now that is what my car paint is supposed to look like; I can't believe what a difference you made! This is exactly what needed to be done, thank you!"
Mike N.

"I took a leap of faith by picking someone on the Internet to detail my bosses boat! I wasn't disappointed! Darren was professional, punctual, and very easy to deal with, and best of all, he did a FANTASTIC JOB! I couldn't have been happier. We will definitely be a repeat customer!!"

"We have seen the work of other detailers in removing various forms of vinyl car decals and vehicle wraps. Often we have to spend additional hours due to the incomplete removal of old graphics, before we can apply new graphics. Save yourself time and aggravation by calling Darren first and have it done right the first time around; this is the way it should be done!"
Tim Cecil
President, Sign Pros

"Good job, good service, good follow-up!"
H. Barstow

"I just wanted to let you know that it was a pleasure meeting you on Saturday. You are a true professional and I find it very comforting to know that there are still people out there that take pride in what they do. "
M. Poris
Playa Del Rey, CA


My initial conversation with Darren at Auto Fetish Detail consisted of what his services would provide. Darren did exactly what he described to me and more. Darren detailed parts of the car that never crossed my mind to clean. Darren was promptly at the time, place and date we had agreed upon. Darren’s professional service and meticulous efforts made my car look better than the day I took delivery from the dealer. It was a great experience to deal with Darren and his professional service and work ethics.

"Darren-you have and do continue to produce AMAZING results time and time again, over the last 17 years or so that you have been doing our cars we have never once been disappointed in the least bit. Thank you for always being consistent and reliable!"
Chandler E.

"Darren- just wanted to let you know how great my Escalade looks each time you service it. Of course I love the convenience of your services, but what I really love is the quality of work! My husband and I have used other detail services in the past, but none of them spent the time you do on our cars. My husband has a critical eye and has remarked on numerous occasions regarding the quality of your work. With two teenagers and a regular carpool schedule, it is amazing how great the Escalade keeps on looking thanks to you!"
M. Goerlitz

"Darren-you treat my cars as though they were yours; thank you!"
Tanya B.

"Detail day is my favorite day of the month-I just love the way you make my cars look Darren!"
Theresa D.

I have generally used other mobile detail services in the past and continue to do so for what I call a normal detail job. But I met Darren through Exclusive Motors as we share the same building. My wife uses the Suburban to run our 3 kids around and it gets very dirty in the process. The carpeting and seating was extremely bad and I thought I was going to have to replace both the carpeting and seating. I told Darren the other detailers in the past were not able to get the carpet and leather very clean. I was floored when I saw the results Darren was able to get! I tell people all the time that I have never paid so much for a detail, but that I have never had such an amazing job either! I send Darren to all my customers who simply demand the best, as Darren is the best!

"Darren-your service makes this one area of my life stress free; you do what you say and do so consistently!"

"Darren- whether I send you to my
house or business, I know I can trust
you to take care of business-
thank you!"

"I swear my Ferrari has never look better; you do amazing work!"
Brian S.

"I wish I could afford you
every week; the cars look so good
when you have done them!"

Griffin W.

"My house cleaners don't do
as good a job as you Darren-
will you teach them what clean really is."

Maurice O.
Anaheim Hills, CA


"Darren-
My Mustang has never looked better; you did a fabulous job!
My daughter noticed how much time you spent detailing the Mustang today (something she normally would never be aware of) and asked how much it costs, I told her it is expensive and said I use Darren because he is the best detailer I have ever used.
Darren you do exactly what you say you are going to do, and do so every time!
I use you Darren because you conduct business exactly as I do!
Thanks again! "

D. Reilly
President - CSBA

"Thank you Darren....
you saved me a "bucket" of money by removing and not replacing
those deteriorated side moldings on my 2005 Chevy truck
and my truck looks new again!"

Steve G.
Anaheim, CA


Darren- I just wanted to call and let you know what a terrific job you did on my motorhome. I really appreciate the effort you put into all the many details of the job! It looks better than the day I picked it up brand new!

I used Darren to take off a vehicle wrap on a Ford Econoline van of ours. Darren showed up on time and did a great job removing not only the decals but all the residue that was left from the glue. If you need a vehicle wrap taken off, give Darren a call.
