its not new.. they come as standard on Most Mercs..and i think even webasto has it.. I am not sure what it's called though.
It functions like a normal sunroof but once you close it you can not even make out that the car has a sunroof.

Yeah they do come with glass type.. But if you want safety this is the one to go for.

i will not be surprised (rather pleased) if our desi entrepreneurs come up with a grill for sunroof safety.

easier to break a sunroof.. Less noisy also.. put a wrench in between the glass and the roof.. pull it.. **crack** there your go.. you are in.

Hey nos_nitrous,
Try PFM Accessories on Mission Road, they deal in Webasto if I remember right.
On Mission Road, take a left into Shamrao Compound(same compound has Stanley Leather Seats and a Hyundai Service Center among others).
