Leather or plastic?
In late summer, I am planning to order a 2012 C350s exactly as I want it; color, options, etc. Hopefully it will be the last car I ever buy. I want to get it perfect!
So I have decided on the configuration I want, but have one part I have not settled yet.
On the 2011 model leather seating is a $1,600 option. Just a tad steep i my opinion on a car that will cost upwards of $45k.
I'd like some feed back on the trade off. In particular, if you
1 Like your seats; leather of MB Tex
2 Do you wish you had the other?
3 Any problems with either?
4 Just an opinion one way or the other.
On my ML, I could only get the MB Tex. I wanted leather, but there was not the color and config I wanted that also had leather. I did not want to order a car and wait 3 months, so i have MB Tex. I am of the opinion that in the summer it is hotter than leather. It seems to keep sweat close to the body.
Also it does not have the same quality of appearance as leather, but I have never been able to compare the two materials in the same situation so I don't know if its just me or if there is in fact a discernible difference. None of the cars I have owned for the last 20 years had anything but leather except the ML.
Any feed back appreciated. Thanks
