Hi everyone,

After 12 months waiting, a special meeting in Stuttgart and a lot of extra dollars, should I keep it or send it back?

Congratulations! The wait was worth it all right- it looks stunning. Gives the 171 a whole new look.[8D]
May you have many happy hours driving this beauty!!

Looks like a glass roof...is it??
Yes, that is my question too. With the glare it is hard to tell. And is the top black or dark blue?

Really does give the car a whole new look and and you are not just one of the many Iridium Silvers (including me)[8D][8D]

I think glass roofs are a great option, but expensive on the SL, around £6000 (and presumably the SLK if they offer it). It will stand out less on black and the darker colours, on the silver it really changes the look. I think if I was to get this I would get black paint.

Congratulations Agent1. A very nice looking car!

Have fun in it.

If I ever get mine away from the dealer and back on the road I think I'll have to drive it up to Sydney and meet up with some of you northerners.

Correction: Price of the Panoramic glass vario sunroof on the SL is £1390, less than I thought and probably better to have on the SLK given that we have a smaller cabin

I am still trying to find out if this is a glass roof or just a black metal roof. I can't tell from the pictures.

Do you know Roadsta??

G'day mate,

You're right, I brought it home yesterday and put it to bed in the garage and haven't looked at it since. I hope I still like it next time I look.

I might take it to our Benz Club meeting tonight.

G'day Ross,

Congratulations on finally getting your car!

It's definitely unique! It's got a sort of soft-top look about it (probably because most soft-top convertibles have a black roof).

I won't attending the Club meeting tonight. However, I hope to see you at the Bundanoon Gorge outing on May 1.

Cheers,
....Julian

ok Ross,

now that we have seen your baby - !!!!

lets hear all the sordid details

tell us about this roof - the mechanics, is it available - will it be available.
dont feel obliged to give an exact price -( but a ball park will do .)

It looks great - would look better on black car - but thats ok,

[:p]
