Nice pics! Man this carbon buildup seems to be real issue for our cars.

Is that an Mr.5 air intake I see on your (frozen grey) car?

These are some of the best pictures of the carbon build-up problem I've seen. Looks like they were able to remove 99% of the carbon. For reference, can you post your mileage when these pictures were taken? Thanks for taking the time to share, and don't forget to let us know how the car feels after the service.

That's super cheap, compared to the dealerships. Is that their normal price, or did they go easier on you because you were having several things done?

Your car looks great, BTW. Congrats on getting the gunk cleaned out!
