Thumbs up

Every car that I have ever had, has had Tan Int. I can't do black. If feels small to me.

I used to own 2 black vehicles in 2 different climates.
In 4-seasons the black paint was impossible to keep clean. In California climate entering 150F interior was another problem.
Than the black interiors looks good only when clean and upkeep. That doesn't last long with average owner.
My favorite (from practical point) is white on tan. That's what my wagon is.

Personally, my all-time favorites are the new designo Espresso on the W221 S-Class and designo Graphite on the facelifted W211 E-Class.

the color combination is more of a personal preference, but if taken care of, black leather looks better. black on black is more aggressive, and classy at the same time. and who the f@#$ is bruno sacco?

Mercedes head of designer. I think he's the former designer now, not sure. Bruno Sacco

I think he designed your W140.
