Is this the correct interior? '95 E300D

Ran across this in ebay....Interior looks like it's from an earlier 124...the stitching isn't the same like on my '94 E class.

What say ye?

Looks like a standard MB-Tex interior. The leather (optional on the early '95s and standard on the true Special Edition models) had a different stitching pattern.

Aaaahhh...maybe that's what it is.... MBTex. I have leather on my 420, and it has large rectangles on the seating area.

The seats in the car in the link, remind me of the seats in the 420SEL (W126) that I used to have.

Looks just like mine, I don't know how he determined it was turbocharged. It looks really clean. How much???

I doubt it's turbodiesel though... I have a 95 E300, and its not a turbo. Great car - best one I've ever owned.

Could be a nice one if it was well maintained. I'd want to see the service records to determine what is around the corner before bidding. With 173K there could be many "wear" items that need to be addressed if the previous owned deferred maintenance...hard to tell from pictures and a limited description.

Yep, that's the thing. You're looking at MB Tex in the pictures and they use a different pattern. (as shown in the pics by Techguy). The enigne in that car is a non-turbo OM606.
