yes they are very very difficult to come across and ive been after one for my 500E or R107 for absolutely forever.

It may even fit the R107 hard top with some messing... will see when it arrives.

Im sure I can make it fit the 500E too if I can ever find a set of genuine roof bars for it.

I ski a lot and anticipate driving to the alps a fair bit... Have even got a set of EVO rims for the 500E with winter tyres on.

Was really excited but now somewhat deflated.
No key in included so cant use the bloomin thing.

Ive emailed the seller but id say only useful as an ornament now... Im guessing getting a key cut by a locksmith will cost a fortune, even if its possible.

Thanks

Leave your skis on the mountain, or do you shift mountains a bit...??

Try the main dealer. There seems to be a serial number on the ebay pics. Maybe they can order a key to fit?
