Thanks for your prompt shipping of the top and I love the easy and effectiveness of your web site. I had it professionally installed by one of our contractors. I could have never installed it without going crazy. Thanks for your support and i will definitely recommend your company.

Mercedes 380 SL convertible top May 16, 2016
Reviewer: Randy M from Spokane, WA  
Last month I received your replacement top for my SL. I systematically removed the old top in a few hours and replaced it with the new one at the end of the second day.  It's quality was equal to the original both inside and out.  As was advertised, the cloth were made in Germany and identical to the original. I would highly recommend your product for anyone considering a replacement top. Your price was the most competitive I could find on the internet!

Reviewer: Stephen Slone from Ohio  
I recently purchased a replacement top for my R107 Mercedes, and I have to say that the quality of the top was as good as the original German top that came on the car. I also replaced the top myself, with the help of the instructions you supplied. The steps were straight foward and the pictures were helpful, in making a job I had never done before much easier then expected. Thanks to your product and service this was an easy and enjoyable experience. Keep up the good work.
