Great looking car. Those rims look massive! Can't imagine they wouldn't give you issues with rubbing.

I ask the man and let you know. But i'm sure nothing being modify, i told the man not to damage anything. He said any slk using 20 doing fine so far as long they used light wheels ex forged whells.

Use the SmartTop module (available from SLK store, top row menu). Installation is the same as this link: http://www.benzworld.org/forums/r171...y-once-30.html

Study pages 11, 28 and 30 well.

The roof module allows you to operate the roof at speeds less than 30 mph/50 kph. Road must be smooth and level and no speed bumps.

Cool, I was going to try 275's but was afraid of rubbing, my 265 barely fit w/o rubbing. It all depends on tire brand also. Forged wheels are the way to go, both light and strong.

Sounds great boxster have this feature, i'm just concern is that broke MB warranty. Have u installed ? How is that work, i like that very much, quite boring spending too much time to convert and not enough time in traffic lights. How much the ST module ? is that possible for shipping to asia ? thks man
