Yes, a great tutorial. They seem pretty neat machines, these. We have had the odd one in but spares are big bucks for them.

Miele's are nice, but can be a pain to re-sell as they get so battered!

The S5 I got for free worked utterly fine once I changed the bag and filters so it stopped overheating itself, but the plastics were destroyed. Not a problem for a machine you want to use, but makes selling it impossible!

And +1 on spare parts prices. On an S5, the silver plastic pedals and trim that run around the back of the machine, that always flake and scratch and look shite, 20ish per piece from Miele! Infact most parts bar bags are only available from Miele. Q had some bits in a long time ago, I bought some wand button kits which were ace, but there was buggar all other stuff. Things like motors and cord reels, your best bet is buying a scrapper machine and hoping (I have an S5 motor in the shed just incase, although it's not great)

Painted/silvered plastic shouldn't be put on anything intended to be used more than once.
