Rear seats in 1999 SL500

I was looking at the photos link and saw some earlier SLs have a 565 rear seats option.

Did the 1999 SL500 come with an option like this? If so, does anyone have it or can you retro fit onto an SL that does not have it? New MB owner.

Hello bstrouse, and welcome aboard to another fellow North Carolinian!

There are lots of members here who have installed rear seats in their R129. If you do a quick forum 'search' using the R129 forum's search feature, you can pull up topics such as the ones below loaded with details. May I also suggest that you review the R129 forum's 'blue stickies' which contains lots of valuable information well worth reading.

Best Regards.

The Mercedes factory option was only fitted to cars without the Bose system. Most US cars had Bose fitted, so if your is one of these, then you cannot fit it, you will have to get one of the aftermarket ones from JJ or similar.
If you can hold the factory option and can get one, it is a well made unit which finishes the car off very nicely. Completely useless as a seat, but nice!

I completely agree I have the factory seats and they have only been used once since I have had the car. If you have very young children then thats a different story.

In Helios especially they are a stunning addition, black not so. I had both and the cream really looked the part...

Anyway as advised more than once n the forum as a rule of safety, if someone is short enough or brave enough to sit on the jump seats please ALWAYS remember to rise the roll bar. That thing can cut heads. No kidding.

Cheers.
