Not sure if this is correct forum, but here goes.
I jsut got my CLK back from the dealer, and one of the things they did was to replace the leather on the seats.
The drivers seat is fine, but passenger seat does not look very good.
By that I mean front edge of the lower cushion has two huge wrinkles in it, and what can only be described a a deformation (dent ?) that is quite noticeable. There is also large wrinkles on the lower side bolster. I questioned the service manager about this and was told it is normal for it to look this way, and it would "break in eventually"
Mt seats did not look this way when the car was new. I find it hard to believe they "break in seats" at the factory. Imagine that job.
Anyway, has anyone had this happen ?
Is there some way to smooth this out ?
Do I make them re-do it ?

Steve Tom, if you are out there, I seem to remember you had this done. How did yours turn out ?

I also had my seats replaced on my CLK, and I just noticed the same problem, although it's just a slight creasing.

I have not talked to my dealer yet, but I would like to know what you find out.

Trust me. If it isn't too bad, leave it. I had my front seat leather replaced on my brand new 1999 S420 because the beige leather came "pre-stained" from the factory. Every new S-Class on the lot with beige leather had the same stains. When I got the car back after having the passenger seat replaced, I was shocked and horrified how the leather looked. The dealer also said it will get better with wear. Then, I had the drivers seat leather replaced. It looked a little better, but did not look like the factory. I do believe that the leather will stretch out for you a bit with use.

The reason I say stop while you are ahead is that when they put the seat back together, I had scratches on the sill plate, the hose for the lumbar was not routed correctly and I could see it every time I got in the car. I have found that the more you take your car in for things, the more chance you have that something else will be mucked up. Now, I am talking from an appearance viewpoint, not mechanical. I am a bit anal with my car, and am very particular.

Good luck.
