Arent those panoramic roof that you can see through as opposed to just a roof painted black
Quote Originally Posted by michaelnj Arent those panoramic roof that you can see through as opposed to just a roof painted black Yes but I dont think its the entire roof. Regardless it would have the look not the functionality. Like I said Im just kicking around how it might look. I know some on forums are good at photoshoppin up an image to visualize something like this. Unfortunately thats not me.
Check out Brents car. He painted his roof black. I just finished painting my roof and front grill black I love it. httpwww.cardomain.comride2216191

Is your car White too I see the black roof on whites but never the silver and Im not sure why. Have you seen any silvers modded this way If so howd it look
Check with the stealership but I would think Thule or one of the other leading rack companies would have a solution. I cant remember if Ive seen racks that go directly into our roof fittings but that would look great. Wait a minute You mean your bike wont fit into that huge trunk of yours Check your local bike specialty shop they usually carry fittment charts and may know of some obscure producers of racks that have worked in the past. Good luck.
Have to get the Basic roof Carrier cross beams first then the bike carriers seperately. Im doing this on my E BTC after considering the different trunk options. Heres a link for the cls mercedes Accessories mercedes Parts Park Place Stores

Dealer has original roof rack.....for cls looks Mint but not all the time.......if u call the dealer Here in CANADA you can rent for 60 week n they install n remove it for You.... I would love to do a shoot with a roof rack .........its odd n looks mint on Our roofs...
Direct Sales and Design - DIRECT SALES & DESIGN sells them painted or unpainted. Below is a picture of the one for your 2006 cls. I dont have the roof spoiler but I did get a painted 3-piece Brabus style trunk lip spoiler from them for my 07 cls550. The quality was great the paint matched perfectly and it was easy to install. Its been installed for over two years with no problems.
I took the pics March 1st not much snow over here. I dont know if you guys noticed but the plastic molding that has the roof rack clips were ordered new from mercedes in black. The one that we replace was hard to paint because of the rubber weather stips that were attached to it and my painter said that it might peel if we painted around it. It runs from the rear of the roof past the side of the windshield
Black roof on white looks sweet. Nice job Definately paint grill.

Thanks man. I got this car in 2005 and there were no stickers on the windshield at all. Quote Originally Posted by jfamondone cls looks great what happened to you MBZ windshield sticker
Interested to see pics too if you get them. Wonder if the part number is the same between the 219 vs 218 . For non OEM my first stop would be Yakima or Thule.

Thats a qn for the Thule or Yakima sales agent. I know they did not have one for the C218 but your car is a 219 so you may have better luck.
There is a safety sensor that prevents the roof from closing on a finger hand or whatever. Its out of adjustment. Have them check all four window too because sometimes they will have the same problem. Dealer can adjust in 5 mins
This is any easy fix at the dealer i know its a pain but you need an SDS to do this. We go in and reinitialize the obstruction sensor in the roof for the pinch protection. It only takes a few minutes and resynching yourself will not work

Quote Originally Posted by kalloorb sometimes 1 out of 5 times when closing a hear a thud like as though there is something sticking that needs to be rolled over for the roof to close. many thanks... In that case I think that there may be an obstruction of some kind. That would need investigating by the removal of the sliding roof to examine the rails top & bottom.
Not a fan of the black roof.
Hmm the black top is veery cool really. Looks like you got a Carbon-Fiber roof. Thumbs up. But is it just a vinyl layer
Quote Originally Posted by 08 cls 550 hey man what lip is that you have on your bumper and i like the black top look.. im thinking about doing it to my diamond white its a carbon fiber lip from ebay....
I like the Black roof I am thinking of doing it too. Paint shop told me 500.00 to do it. and the Grill is nice too. Is it the same color black as roof
looks awesome...i might buy the same lip since my cls is also white and this looks really good on it...also for a second i thought you lived in my town but its levittown PA not levittown NY
Nice Vehicle what size are your rims front and back Also did you drop it any I just bought a 2008 cls and trying to get some ideas. I like the way your rims fit on the vehicle.
