    From what I can see though, the trim panel will sit about 150mm from the back of the boot?

    But I agree, the SL isn't what you'd call a load lugger in the first place!

    Just heard back from the parts dept - trim panel A 129 694 17 25 is a special order from Germany, £47.09 plus VAT. Should arrive mid/end next week.

    So do you need the trim code as well Bill?

    I'm in 2 minds about this - for one, I don't have the straps on my car, secondly, if its summer, the deflectors on the car!!

    The combination of VIN number and part number is supposed to give them the right colour code. But in my case the info. in EPC wasn't clear, so they queried it with M-B. If the colour doesn't look right I'm not paying! :D

    If my car didn't already have the straps I probably wouldn't have bothered ordering the panel. It just annoys me to have something visibly 'missing'!

    Update - panel arrived on Friday ... only 3 days from ordering (pretty good). Unfortunately I can't pick it up till later this week though.
