Good luck.
Thanks, Jeff. And the Performance Products catalog for the Mercedes arrived the same day I bought the car.

Hows do the seats feel now? Are they firmer than you expected? I saw a few posts where people felt they were uncomfortable for the first year.

I'll need to do my driver's seat soon. It's already starting to hurt my back. The owner has the sheepskin covers on the front seats. I'm not sure if I'll keep those or not. The leather has some fine cracks which I know I can repair.
