Question MB-Tex Repairs

I just purchased a '95 E320 Wagon. Except for a couple of details, it's in excellent condition. It was missing the rear seat headrests (all three). The color scheme (green paint, beige MB-Tex) is identical to this car:

Can anyone tell me what the MB name is for this color beige and where I might purchase a used set of headrests?

The driver's seat has a cut in the MB-Tex and the arm rest is badly scuffed. I want to replace the MB-Tex for both. Does anyone know of a good interior shop in or near RI?

Best bet for headrests... eBay or wrecker's yard with national connection, like Potomac Auto.

Theses folks have been able to help with MB Tex replacement upholstery sections:http://www.gahhinc.com/ It's really not a bad DIY with their pieces (all pre-cut and ready to install). Call them for individual pieces; helpful and fair pricing.

Using the VIN plate of your car you can figure out the upholstery color code here:http://www.amcon-luxled.com/mbcar/index.html

The name of the interior color is parchment.

Thanks 007 and haasman.

I'm still looking for a local shop to do the seat work. I have heated seats and the heaters need to transfer to the new seat. Gahh is willing to do the transfer but will need my old seat cover with the heaters. I'm in the throes of a major home remodel and my time is spoken for managing the work.
