I used to own a 2006 slk 350 - loved that car! We had to sell it, however, because my hubby did not fit in it well. Now that our g37 convertible is nearing 85k miles, we are in the market again!

Hubby and I have settled on either a 2014+ slk 55 or a 2017 slc 43. We will hopefully be test driving both next weekend.

The one issue we are dealing with is the magic sky control, as we live in the desert of southwest Utah. Finding a one year old slc with MSC is proving to be challenging. And finding an slk 55 (with a good carfax report) is challenging enough as it is! Love the idea of a panoramic roof (so not a huge fan of the solid headliner), but not sure if there are options to prevent the radiant heat/uv from burning into our heads.

Thanks for the add!

Welcome back! I hope you find nice one, not at all familiar with the panoramic roof but on sunny days even here in Indiana I pull the shades on my moon roofs to avoid brain fry, not sure how well the Mercedes panoramic roof filters the light or if there's an option to cover it up. Good Luck!

Welcome from Canada :smile:

Yes, the magic sky is a great option. We don't get the heat that you do but it can get into the 90's at times here. On the odd time that I just can't handle the heat (top down), darkening the roof does make a huge difference as opposed to it not being darkened.

Well worth the effort to find one :tu:
