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. :laugh:

Haven't figured out the cams to use or where to find the liner yet...

In any case, cheers to all! Drive on!

Hi Corey, and welcome to SLKWorld.com from the UK Midlands - Thanks for joining us! :)

Have you tried your local MB dealer for the panoramic headliner part?

Don’t forget to lube those seals:

Some tips to make your visit here more enjoyable:
  • Post your VIN (or VIN of a car you're looking at) in the Vehicle Datacard Request section to get a free datacard (options on the car).
    FREE!! How to get a free data card!
  • If you haven’t, please use the 'search' feature at the top right of the page for your questions as they have probably been asked before. Remember, ‘Search’ is your friend.
  • If you wish to become PM (Private Message) capable, you need 15 posts. To get those 15 posts quickly, just go to the ‘New members introduce yourself here’ section and welcome enough new members to obtain your needed posts to PM.
  • Want to post a picture? Start a new thread or make a post, click ‘edit’, click on the ‘paper clip’ or ‘advanced’ and/or ‘manage attachments’ then ‘choose file’ then ‘upload’ and ‘submit’! If iPhone/iPad pics, you can only attach 1 pic per post this way as iOS names its pics all the same, image.jpg.
  • Want to 'like' or 'thank' someone’s comments? Use the ‘like’ button to the right or the ‘Thanks’ button, bottom right of any individual’s post that you like. This saves you having to comment.
  • New members should be aware that the 'New Posts' link in the info bar towards the top of the screen is a great way to see all of the posts you have missed since you were on the forum last. Remember to click 'mark forums read' under ‘quick links’ when you leave.

Satellite Beach on the Space Coast south of Cocoa Beach.

Too bad about the winery meet. I was in Lakeland at the Sun'n'Fun Airshow on the 9th (first "trip" in new toy) so I could have stopped by... Maybe next time!
