SLK roof specialist Hampshire/Surrey


I'm new to this forum. I've had a 2001 SLK 230 from new. The boot lid doesn't quite align properly and I'd like to get an expert to check over the folding roof and see if the fit can be improved. The roof system works fine apart from this.

The car has only covered about 26,000 miles and I'm keen to keep it in top condition.

Does anyone know a garage - ideally in the Hampshire/Surrey area - that is competent in dealing with the folding roof mechanisms?

Separately, is anyone able to recommend a wheel refinishing service in the same area? Like many SLK's of this age there is mild corrosion on the wheel centres.

Many thanks for any recommendations.
