He has a silver and a blue. Pretty sure they are $1500 each. If it was for the two I would have them already

A poorly-worded ad, that's for sure. It would be fairly easy to argue that he's selling them together at that price! Factor in the seller's limited history, the 'No Returns Accepted' policy, lousy grammar, and the plea to "Please, before biding contact me" and I have to say that the deal smells just a bit off ... maybe if I was local and could check them out it would be different.

I am tempted but on the other hand I do not drive my pride and joy in cold weather and the hard top gets minimal use.

I am very interested in the silver top and have sent an email to the seller via ebay but no response yet. Take that along with the poorly worded ad and it makes me wonder. How i would enjoy the pano roof! If anybody hears anything on this, let me know. Thanks.

If you really want it I would buy it on ebay. Drive over and see it and give him cash when you have it on the car. Dont send any money ahead of time unless its a small deposet.

I couldn't agree more. I have sent him an email and his lack of a response, speaks for itself. I'll keep you boys posted.

The seller said that both tops are in "excellent" condition and have a beige interior color. He is located in Northern Mass.

Guys - I think i am going to purchase the silver top but wanted to get your opinions on what i should watch out for. Obviously, cash will not change hands until the top sits on my 2001 SL500 but what should i be looking for? Are there seals or something that i should be looking out for? Any insight would be appreciated as i already spend enough money on this car and i don't want to throw anymore away foolishly. Thanks!

The top is such a simple piece that not much can go wrong (unless the glass is cracked etc).
Unless the seals are obviously damaged, they should fit your car. Check the shade to see if it operates OK, but even if it doesn't that's minor stuffs that can be fixed later as long as the price you pay is right.

Pano Top... cheap... go grab it...

Moderator Note: This topic has been merged with the above thread


Check this out, the seller had two of these, I visited him at his house yesterday and bought mine, so he has one left...

The top is dark blue, and mushroom interior, but it can easily be pained and dyed...

His name is Tony, a great Mercedes guy...

The silver one is not real silver, but Silver Arrow silver, so you would have had to paint it anyway...

Come get the blue one... it is the same...

I actually contacted the seller initially about 45 minutes after they listed the tops on eBay (I know, I need to get a life... instead of searching ebay for parts), but the snow storm delayed the transaction closing till yesterday...

Since I snatched the top you wanted, I can help you out Mike with the shipping logistics on the blue one, since I am local to the seller, if you re not willing to drive down, I dont think Tony is open to shipping the top...

So it was you who snagged my silver top... You lucky guy.
Mike - there is very little surface area to re-spray on a Pano - go for it! ( Sorry - I love spending other peoples money..;).)
