Good Evening all

New member here!

Not taken delivery of the car yet, hopefully this week, all being well!, can't wait or contain myself now!, but trying to be sensible!, he he

Anyhoo, just thought I would say Hi!

Couple of things....

1) are there any members on here in the Newcastle, North East, Tyne & Wear, Northumberland area?

2) has anyone used, got, or had fitted in the North East area the Smartop unit?, i love the sound of it but what do the MB dealerships think of it, im guessing they dont like it when you cant turn it off and make it invissible and is there anyone up here that can fit one?

regards

SPW

Welcome from just down the road near Darlington. I've fitted three SmartTop modules now, and they all still work!! They can be disabled using the steering wheel buttons, so the dealer won't see them. There is quite an active NE group - check out the UK section of the forum for details of our past and forthcoming 'Sheep Chases'.

okI will take a look and cheers for the reply!

So have you fitted the smartop unit for other people?, how long does it take and do you charge?, it scares me taking the car apart!

It's not that scary, and so far, I haven't had many bits left over :biglaugh:

As for charges, a donation to the forum funds will be sufficient.

Not a problem - it's one of the best mods you can do to your car.

Welcome from NW Blighty.... :)

You'll enjoy your SLK and the sheep hunts are great fun and a very nice way to meet fellow forum members. Unfortunately we've only so been able to go on two runs, but have thoroughly enjoyed them both. The members are every bit as pleasant in person as they are on t'internet.. :)
