Seat Covers

My interior is an 878 Semi-Aniline - Gray. I want to get some nice seat covers, preferably sheepskin or something similar. Could someone suggest a source preferably in the US ?

No sheepskin ? BTW I keep getting "We're sorry, CalTrend Seat Covers are not currently offered for your Mercedes-Benz SLK-Class"


Is there anything current ? Do want something that fits properly. Don't really care about the windscarf.

Not cold, hot. Remember getting out of a Jag on a warmish day and my white shirt now had a red back. I find sheepskin covers (have in my Reattas) very cool on a hot day even when you can't touch the shifter.

Except I tend to park places with the top down (that "impossible to open" second armrest box is handy) & AC does not help particularly when the engine is off.


ps I timed the top at a hair under 20 seconds. Can raise or lower the manual top on my Reatta faster (but have to get out).

get the SmartTop
put it down up to 300 feet away to 'cool' the car down before you get in it

What is this SmartTOP all the members keep talking about?

I do too but:

do you run it with the top down? I know I run in the cold top down/heat up but a/c?

I must be naive

OK sorry we got sidetracked here. What I'd like to know is if anyone can recommend a source for a good sheepskin (3/4" or 1") seat cover for an SLK ?

I have had on other cars before.

Whether the top is up or down or the AC is on or not is not germane to the situation.
