Installed the Smart Top Module a couple of weeks ago. The functions are fantastic especially the oft talked about remote roof control. :Banane40:

The option I havent heard discussed much addresses one of the tiny weaknesses of our cars....the inability to know when you lock or unlock the car from a distance. The function allows an audible beep when locked and a beep-beep when unlocking. :Banane12:

(Now if someone could figure out how to only open/close the rear windows indepedent of the fronts) :rolleyes:

Glad to hear you're enjoying your Smart Roof jfsully!

I just installed the EasyRoofSLK (R170 version of Smart Roof) I love it too.

I opted for the non-chirping version since the Germans don't much appreciate car alarm armings that chirp. If I'm uncertain of the lock/unloack state...I just hit the button again.

I am having a bit of a challenge though with the remote operation. Seems I have to activate it twice in order for the top to open. I'm not sure if its signal strength or reception yet.

Sounds like it's the SmartTop version 2 for the R171.

It's hard to beat the roof operation using the remote key or roof operation while in motion, always a head turner.

:tu: Yup, the audible chirp on locking and unlocking is my second favorite feature.

Hi Folks,
I have been following your website for a few months now. I just joined SLKWorld couple of weeks ago because it seems your website is a little more friendly to women than some of the others I read. Don't get me wrong I'm not a prude but sometimes the forums can get way out. Anyway I'm interested in the Easy Roof SLK. Where do you get one from?

I installed the smart top last weekend on my RHD SLK200 and it works great.

The roof is so much more useable now that I can operate it on the move. In fact I was driving along the other day when a few spots of rain started to appear on the windscreen, I pushed the console button and it finished closing just as the rain started pelting down.

Couldn't be happpier.
