If it's any help I can confirm that all of the above is exactly what needed. I used the part number to order the panoramic roof lining from my dealer, it came into stock in just 2 days and I collected it yesterday.All new SLKs now come with the glass (polycarbonate) roof. It depends on what roof option you spec. The Std spec just has a solid headlining.
A couple of weeks ago I swapped the solid headlining in my 2 year old car to the one from the pano roof, it's a really easy DIY job.
Part No. A172 790 00 45 9H23
The last part of the number above is the colour code, my local dealer couldn't find the part until they had it.
£195.60 inc VAT
A couple of things to note:
The panoramic headlining comes complete with all the plastic clips, so no need to order new ones seperately or re-use the ones from your old headlining.
The box it comes in is pretty big i.e doesn't fit in a SLK!
In the UK there are 3 different roof options:As an option on the 2015 cars, the panorama roof is a $2500 MSRP option. This is for the electrically dimming one. I'm not sure about the regular glass (polycarb) one. Seems a little pricey to add afterwards. To me anyway...
I have a 2011 250 SLK with UK spec. It came with the standard steel centre roof section. I would love to change just the steel centre panel for the glass centre panel, but I am told the complete centre roof section has to be changed, not just the panel, and this costs around £2,500!Ok so my SLK 350 has a standard roof, and I am tempted to get the top section changed for a glass section. Does anyone have an idea of cost or at least a part number?
I might want to get this done if not crazy money.
I do but you have to update your profile and post an introduction threadHi! Do you know what the part number is for the glass?
Gosh I'm confused. My used 2012 had a plastic tinted roof panel which was changed for free by Mercedes to glass (as fitted to later models) when water leaks couldn't be eliminated.In the UK there are 3 different roof options:
1. standard roof which is the clear polycarbonate, but fitted inside with a solid roof lining. From the outside this looks exactly the same as option 2.
2. Panoramic vario-roof - this is the clear polycarbonate but this time fitted with a roof lining allowing you to see through the polycarbonate. This is a cost option at £410.
3. Lastly there is the magic sky option, the one that can turn from frosted to clear in the press of a button. This is a cost option of £1955.
But I'm in UK where it rains every other day and I'm going bald on the back :-(I don't get the point of having a glass "sun"roof in a roadster ? Man up and get the roof down guys , I don't include ladies as most I encounter will have the roof down if there is even a slight glimmer of sunshine lol
Neishb,But I'm in UK where it rains every other day and I'm going bald on the back :-(
Hey, that's great news - I found my perfect car and bought it yesterday. The only option it doesn't have is the pano and I thought I could live with that, but it there is a reasonable-cost option to get that as well I will be very happy :grin:If it's any help I can confirm that all of the above is exactly what needed.

My new car is due to arrive tomorrow with the fixed headlining in, my first job will be carefully pulling it out and replacing it with the panoramic lining.
I've taken pictures of the panoramic lining and the box that it comes in, if anyone's interested on more than happy to post them up.
I will also take pictures of before and after from both inside and outside the car.
