Question Leather or Plastic

I have a 1989 300SE. The dashboard is in excellent shape & I want to keep it that way. However, I don't know if is plastic or leather. If plastic I can use Armour All, if leather I can use leather treatment like Connolly Hide Food. I don't find it soft so I leaning towards plastic. Can anyone confirm?

M-B's vinyl (MB-Tex) has been around for decades as an alternative to leather. Years ago an upholsterer shared that a simple drop of water placed on leather upholstery would soak in after a short interval, but a water drop would just sit on the vinyl. Hope that helps.

When out on the road, it's always best to watch out for Pot holes, Sink holes, and those other Holes!
