Thank you Michael, the link is of great help. I thought thou that it was an option for the newer (as in 2007 up) MB models.

2007-2009 E-Class had an interior option that was a two-tone black/brown interior. There is also the designo Mocha Black interior that most higher end models have as an option.

Thank you asianml for the info. Can you point me where I might be able to view these colors, as I am trying to come up with options for a future interior upgrade on an R107 project restoration.

I wouldn't know where to begin. I would go searching on ebaymotors, cars.com, autotrader, or just google. The shades of the designo mocha black interiors vary from model to model, so it's hard to pinpoint one shade of brown exactly.

It is a hard option code to find. Most of the option code listings are not in the 100's or just skip 103. Of course if you search for "103", the M103 engine keeps coming up. Are you looking to reuphoster your mercedes? It seems like if you took it to a good shop they will have the books etc to look up or match your color. I had to do that when I was looking to get my B pillars recovered in my w126.

Hi Michael,

Happy New Year and thank you for taking time out to reply.

Yes, I was planning to change the leather interior of the R107, to "tobacco" color. I did go to a car interior shop, and they did have the catalogs, but they were asking me for the MB color code number. There were different shades of brownish/red leather, but I wanted to get as near as possible to the MB color.

My plan was to dis-assemble the car, paint the exterior to gray (on the dark side) metallic, keep the top dashboard black, but them have everything else in the interior changed to "tobacco" color leather.
