For 250€ this is a real bargain. If the device works perfectly, the supplier unfortunately does not write anything about it.  :-[

Really cool! I have one of those (both the wagon and the brochure--although my brochure might be slightly different).

A black dash with but 1 tiny crack. I don't believe I've seen anything like it for a long time!

Interesting that they always seem to crack in that spot first,  likely the point where the vinyl is most stressed due to the bend and of course sun exposure.

Mine now also has two tiny cracks both sides of that bulge, so I'd say they do indeed start there first.

In my case these cracks developed in the last five years since the resto, despite the car spending most of its life in a blacked out garage.

Bloody annoying, but what else can you do?

Mine has the same cracks as well.  I think I've developed a virtually undetectable repair process.   ;D ;D  If it pans out I'll post details.  Stay tuned......

Hard to say what these are based on the pics.
But even the ones you get from Daimler need to be cut to length as they fit several models.
