question about the russian vin site

For my car the interior is listed like so.
Interior: leather "Twin" pacific blue (132)

I assume the "leather" means the car had leather seats in it from the factory. What it is has is the MB Tex vinyl seat. Which I am happy with cause they wear so much better. Did my car have leather seats originally? All the seats seats in the car are the same so someone may have switched them all out.

If you pull the back seat and look in the bottom or in the back of the backrest you should see a tag. The tag will have the vehicles VIN number on it. The front seats have them in the back or under the seat also. If the VIN on the card matches your cars VIN, then I would doubt the russian site.

It may say leather when it actually is MB-Tex. If your interior color code is 1xx, it's MB-Tex, if it's 2xx, it's leather.
