I have been a long time sports car owner. In fact I am 51 and aside from 3 years with a Nissan Pathfinder, every car I have ever owned from age 16 was a manual sports car.
My last, a 2005 Chrysler Crossfire Roadster, was just diagnosed with 7k of repairs so I decided it was time to get a real MB and bought a 2013 SLK250 Red/Sahara/Sport/Nav/Pana/Manual (which was not easy to find.) I had to buy it sight unseen from VA and ship it to FL.
I truly like it thus far but am more than a tad annoyed that my Pana roof was in fact not... It is glass on top but has a solid liner inside. I have hunted all over the net for the inside plastic panoramic headliner part to open it to the sky to no avail. Will keep hunting. Found one for 2012 though.
Also planning to do the Naviks video integration unit mod with front and rear cams, the SmartTop mod, the video in motion mod, and add a solid wind restrictor. Trying to get it all lined up in advance so I could do it in one weekend project of doom since I will have to gut the car for all that.
Haven't figured out the cams to use or where to find the liner yet...
In any case, cheers to all! Drive on!
