Ashtray??? E320 210.065

I just added a 1999 E320 to my stable.

Well pleased with car.

The ash tray is clean and plastic. Plastic seems odd

Should there be a metal liner for the car? Is that something I could buy?

Thanks for the update

Most ash trays are non flammable plastic these days.

tivoliman, all is well. Our 1998 E320, which we bought new, has a plastic ashtray. That vintage E-class was when the accountants started ruling the roost, and the emphasis was on cost cutting so MB vehicles were more competitively priced. I would expect the plastic ashtray is also lighter than a metal version. In combination with many other lighter components fuel economy increases, as does the CAFE.
