Sunroof Hater

I'm sure you can order a brand new MB with the sunroof deleted - correct? The challenge is fining a used MB without a sunroof. There is no way to include this in search criteria on websites like auto trader.com. It's also not common for a seller to advertise that a car has no sunroof. Any tips for locating a car without the sunroof? They are a maintenance headache, but at 6'7" they cut into my valuable headroom. Thanks for any advice you can give. Cam

Most MB coming into USA have the dang sunroof. A bunch of European delivered cars do not get a hole in the roof, so look for a grey market car.

We order new Ml320 without sunroof and with cloths back in 1997.
MB USA kept us waiting full 12 months for delivery.
Those orders with $4500 sunroof/leather option were delivered in 6 months at the time.
Than I don't think you could ever order E class without sunroof here.

Once tried to order a new Mercedes without a sunroof, as I also never use them.

Salesman said it was possible in theory, but would be exceedingly difficult and I'd be sorry.

Anyway, great minds!
