    Nice. It appears that the Single boiler dual purpose E61s have pretty much the same configuration but with different switches.

    Id remove that sticker off the top of the group head. I dont think you need reminding how hot it gets.

    Thanks for putting up the photos.I will also be upgrading to one of these from a 6910, Im sure youll let us know how the transition goes.The oval things above the switches...are they just decor?

    Those oval things are pressed and raised, with a brushed antique finish. There are symbols on each of these denoting the functions that are available from the switches below.

    My Unico Splendor has the same sticker. I was thinking of removing it, but dont want to start only to discover I cant remove the glue, leaving a gluggy mess.

    Has anyone successfully removed these stickers? If so, do I need any particular products to do this (glue remover etc.)?

    Judging by the bluriness of your last shot, Iconiq, Id lay-off the shots for a while! :)

    Eucalyptus oil on a soft cloth will remove the glue

    Ha ha, yeah, my excuse is a cheap cam! Ill have to take better ones and replace them!

    The sticker peeled off fine, left a small amount of glue, but that just wiped away with a damp cloth!

    If your in a jam trying to find eucalyptus oil, a small amount of spray and cook or even cooking oil will help!

    What does "Arte Di Vittoria" and a goanna on a vertical branch represent.

    Thats a real beauty. Congratulations! I like the toggle switches. Welcome to the dual purpose single boiler e61 club.
