Yeah,fitted one a week ago.
Perfect for me, all I wanted was the remote open/closing of the roof.
The one touch opening/closing with the the console switch is a bonus as is operating while moving.
Ordered the r170 my mistake but they swapped it for an extra £20 for the r171 model,only problem I had was on the right hand drive r171's couldn't find a live red wire in the harness so had to do a lot of searching to find a tap off the light switch.
Works fine and I saved a bit of money over other models?

Might be cheaper but won't have all the features of the smarttop
http://www.slkworld.com/general-discussion/121481-what-smarttop-all-members-keep-talking-about.html

Its features:

Remote Control - Open and close your convertible top using the original factory remote control key/key fob up to 300 feet away. Uses RF (radio frequency) NOT IR (infrared radiation) energy
Full Text Set Up/Display - Configure functions to meet your personal preferences via our full text setup menu.
Chirp Signal Function - When locking and unlocking the car, if desired the horn sounds briefly.
Comfort Window Open/Close - One touch opening/closing of all windows via quick double tap on the top switch.
Home Light - remotely activate the headlights for 30 seconds.
Open/Close While Driving - Speed programmable up to 38 mph you can open and close your top while moving or driving.
Passive/Invisible Mode - Turn the whole module off with an easy key sequence.
Separate Window Control - Raise and lower the windows separately by remote without activating the top.
Hazard Signals - Optionally the hazard and blinkers are activated while the top is operated from the remote.
USB Port - This module can be updated using any Windows PC/Laptop with internet connection.
One Touch Operation - 'One Touch' convertible top operation allows your top to open or close automatically with one touch of a button.
Reversible Plug Installation - Remove any time allowing sale or return of a leased vehicle in its original condition.
Top Convenience Mode - Turning the ignition on or off does not interrupt convertible top operation.
Automatic Door Locks - Set power locks to automatically lock and unlock the doors when you drive.

among others.

just my opinion of course :D

Andy, if you order your SmartTop from the USA, just be aware that you might get charged import duties, tax and fees when it arrives in the UK. I ordered mine from PPCGB and, with 5% discount for liking their Facebook page, I think it cost me around £230 (with next day delivery, and no worries about additional costs/fees).

If you're interested in buying from PPCGB (I have no affiliation - I'm just a satisfied customer of theirs), see the link in my signature for details... :tu:

Note: make sure you order the version for your car though (R170), not the one I ordered for mine (R171).
