My trusty 1971 250 has beige Tex upholstery. Looks like the real thing. Easy to clean and care for. It can get a little sticky in the summer though. People always assume it is leather, who am I to tell them otherwise?
My 300E has black leather - beautiful to sit on and you can't beat that leather smell but it requires a lot of care. I thoroughly hand-clean the seats every two months with MB Leather Conditioner and Cleaner - works great but it is a lot of work!
