I moved from Cali to Boston, and in the 4+ years living here, I have seen close to a dozen SLKs and not one had their roof down. Not a single one. Recently I carded an SLK owner while we were both parked at Home Depot, when she drove away she had her top UP, whereas when I drove away right behind her, I had my top DOWN.
It isn't about hair makeup or the comfort of A/C blasting away, it had to be something else. In Cali, many SLK owners drive top down... beautiful weather, and culture of open air driving permeates for convertible owners... In the North East, that "culture" is missing... maybe here people are conditioned to close the roof bcos of the unpredictable weather patterns... That is what I believe accounts for the majority of SLK owners driving top UP here.
