I know. But I can't find another one so it seems odd/unique in this car. Any one else seen one, got one, heard of one. Thanks

Talked to the head installer at a and a royal auto trim (our local interior pros). He says it is a factory bench that had been incorrectly recovered. That actually sounds right, because the front is a slightly different ( less faded) color than the rear and does not have stuffed pleats, as the rear does. He said he has never seen one, but there is no way it was a custom install.


He also gave me a quote of $750 for my headliner without rear window rubber, ouch.

Don't ever say "never" when it comes to M-B. Anything was, and still is, available for a price or with a certain degree of influence.

Can't you just check the data card and see what options the car was fitted with? If you don't have the card Classic Center will supply it to you via email if you write and ask. You can decode online of post your codes and we can help. Sounds like you would like to have a definitive answer on this one.

The data card above the radiator under the hood? I'll post a pic later.
The two I'd plates under the hood are the only badges I can find. So this data card is kinda like a dealer window sticker, as far as options go? I don't have one.

This stupid iPad won't let me post a pic. Hmm.
