locking centre console??

hi all, first of all thank you very much for the welcomes, much appreciated!

i wonder if anyone can answer these 2 questions, should the centre console lid lock when the car is cenrtrally locked with the roof open? this happens on a friends slk, 1 year younger than mine, mine is 1998, and it doesnt appear to lock at this time? does it need programming etc???

also where might i get a centre strip for the lower grill as mine is missing? would you recommend an original, Ł80.00 from mercedes, or i quite fancy an after market stainless mesh type, if anyone knows where these can be purchased?

many thanks

steve

Have you tried locking the car with the top down and reaching in and trying to open it? As far as I know they have all locked, but I don't know that model year in particular.
