I always thought my dad's 300Cd had leather but I will check. It feels way softer than mom's tex. Both my cars are leather and I kinda wish I had Tex. that crap is industructible. If you guys want to refresh your tex or leather, go to an upholstery or car paint shop and have them match your interior color(where it is not faded). You then just lightly spray the seats and door panels with a mist and it will cover the cracks and bring back the monotone look it should have instead of being 5 different shades of beige. Dye is a beutiful thing and easy to use. If you think I'm wrong, polish your shoes.

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!
