GTR Rear Hatch Cover...

Okay playing with the car tonight. I've seen and isn't there suppose to be a vinyl pull that covers the contents in the deep part of the hatch/trunk space? I see where it looks like it would connect. I thought it was in that big long bag I received. However, when I opened it up tonight for the first time it contains the cargo net.

Nothing in my GTC. No vinyl pull. Not in my GTS either. But I think in my 2013 SL550 there was.

Pull the tab I circled. The screen will pull out. Right?

That pic is to show what it looks like. Here's what you get in the GTR. Is it an option you order from the dealer?

The owner’s manual makes reference to the fact that we’re supposed to have a rear cargo area screen, but there wasn’t one included with my GTR.

The screen, or netting, is in a long bag that should have been in the trunk of the car. If you didn't get it, your dealer owes it to you.

So my car came with the net to stop things in the hatch area from flying towards the front during a rapid stop, but there’s no ‘roll-up screen’ to cover up items in the hatch area from prying eyes.

It's a roll up that pulls out of the trunk with the tab that's circled in an earlier picture. My GT has it. Not sure about the other GT variants.

Mr. Vanos and I and two Porsches went for a drive this morning. His awesome GT R didn't have it either.

I had the privacy screen in both of my GTS’s.

My GTR however, has the same AMG logo bar installed the in the GTR picture. I am thinking they didn’t mean to include a privacy screen in any GTR.

Here it is. I knew I saw it somewhere. Guess MB decided not to include it for North America.

It’s fun trying to out guess MB. I am revising my opinion to the screen gets deleted if you get the PAK option which has the black AMG bar in the storage area instead of the storage bar for the privacy shield.

Who’s next to guess?

All black gauge trim, seat trim, door sills, steering wheel, a/c vents- - etc. The brushed effect on the cargo AMG trim piece matches the door sills.

For comparison, look at the interior pics in the red GTS and compare them with the GTR.

Obviously I can only deduce that it does. But if you look closely, the AMG logo piece takes the place of the privacy screen storage bar. The pictures I referenced in this thread show this. In other words unless somebody here can show a GTR picture with both I’m sticking to my story.

So is there a net or no. If so, what’s the part number?

Putting things in rear can get messy....

GT there is a net and a privacy screen.

GTR there only seems to be a net and no screen IF you have the PAK option. If not, then both net and privacy screen.
