It seems most common nowadays to be in the stripper models and the wagons.

I wouldn't have bought my '95 if leather was in it - the MB Tex looks new forever. One of the fun cars I looked at was a stripper C-Class Kompressor - the only MB you can still buy with a stick and MB Tex.

I don't know what my seats are covered with, is there any definitive way to tell?

Also, my driver seat leans to the left do I need to replace the whole seat or is there a way to repair it?

This site will provide the info you are looking for and more, make sure you convert the vin and click on the full version box:

e.g. 300E = 1240301 substitute characters 4 thru 10
WDBEA30D8GA999999 = WDB1240301A999999

I just punched mine in, and it came up code 494 "California version".
Crap! Is my car California emissions, or were all 95 E320's "California version"?
Anyone know?

I've asked this question in the past, because my '95 E300D also came back as a California Version, but the car was bought in Dallas. Bottom line was that no one seemed to really know the answer, but I think they all were Cali versions - at least in 1995.

My maintenance book says the car was sold originally from Gainesville, Fla. when new. Thanks POS.

Any 124 with CE is Cal...all late U.S./124 used this system.
If the car has an N59 Emmisions code retrieve system, it is Cal Emissions Standards

Chassis code for a 300E is 124.030, use a one (1) for the 10th digit in the vin, result is
1240301
If you don't know your chassis code just go to the "buy parts" tab at the top of this screen and look it up.
