Need help Identifying which options are in my car

How do I know which audio system my car is equipped with? Leather seats? Leatherette seats? Panoramic sunroof? etc? Those were the only things i see online... I don't know too much about cars... Educate me! :-)

Thanks,
Singh

Basically your data card tells exactly what your car is equipped with when it left the factory. It would be useful if you would mention your location at the profile, we could suggest the best options to obtain the data card. It also depends a bit on the car age. The Russian sites have data cards for most MBs. data card link

If you are after options packages like those that MBUSA lists on the window sticker, these are not shown within the data card but you have to figure out which factory options a package consists of and then you would be able to list which packages are included.

If needed, the forum will help you obtain the data card, you can find several existing threads for this topic.

Thanks, I went to the link, but nothing came up when I entered my VIN number.
I am in Victorville, CA, USA. The car was first registered in June of 2008... which is when my 4 year factory warranty expires...Just need to know which options are equipped; to have an understanding of what i'm working with.

It is free for a year (but requires a credit for validation). It will open a Java application (which for some ridiculous reason has a Windows dependency so does not work on a Mac) and in that application you can enter your VIN. Then you want to open the Datacard for your vehicle and will have all the codes.
Your dealer could also pull this for you.
