I asked a dealer about installing a SmartTop module and they didn't want to talk about it. I guess it'll void the warranty if it's noticed, right? I checked at a local MB non-dealer shop and they weren't familiar with it.

Has anyone had one professionally installed in the SF/Bay Area? I'd rather go to someone who's done it before. There's no way I'm going to mess with installing it.



Thanks

There's a few people in SoCal that have done it. San Fran? Not sure. Really it's pretty easy if you use the DIY thread posted here under the DIY section. I did mine this past weekend in about 3 hours working very carefully. If you come to the Vegas retreat, they'll do it for you free!

Ah, a person after my own heart. They're all gunna tell you it's an easy install, which it is, but only if you've seen it or know what you're doing. I believe Eddy's guide is the most complete and has pretty pictures.

Think your best bet would be to find someone up there on this site that has done it before. I bribed Eddy into doing mine :tu: . It's unlikely that'd you'd find a shop that has done too many of these.

I saw the header for the Vegas retreat but now I can't find it. Where is it? It's not in the Events forum.

I'm not good with powertools and that includes screwdrivers, so I'm beyond approaching it.

I'll actually be in the SFO area in September (afternoon of the 17th and 24th). I stay at the Holiday Inn Gateway (near the Lotus dealership!). I travel in and out frequently, and could do the install for you in less than an hour. If you're interested, let me know.
