Swapping Interior Panels in 95 to 96 C-Class

Don't know the name of the panel (the kick panel?)... but it's the panel above the driver's feet, below the cluster. The panel where the OBDII connector is!

It is plastic on my 95 C280... cheap looking, and it protrudes (towards my knees) more than the ones in the 96 and later 202. Does anyone know if these panels are interchangeable? The newer one looks padded, or similar to the dash (material), while the 95 is plastic and cheap looking!


Ok, I was able to find some pix on my harddrive of the two types.

OK the darn pix won't upload right!

Ok, I was able to upload this pic (it's small) of the 95 panel.. you can see that it's plastic and protrudes (curves out) more than the 96 and later models.
