I bought an 08 CLK a few days ago and just discovered a 'secret compartment' (well I only found it by accident!) It's in the glove compartment, on the front bit that swivels downwards. Its about the size of a spectacles case, and the door of the compartment is hinged. If it's just a storage space, why is the door/cover bright silver/mirrored? It's been driving me crazy trying to figure out what its for. Anybody know?
TIA

Well, when I bought my w203 I had to post a question in this forum in order to find out what is the thingy holder in the top left-hand side of the glove compartment... and it turned out to be a pen holder, only mine was missing! (needless to say that an official MB pen now resides there once again)

Ok, so consens seems to be that it's a sunglasses holder. But why is it silver?!! You can't even actually see that its silver unless you are an idiot and force it open too far and break it and then it comes out :-( So I'm told.......... ;-)
