Just curious if anyone know what type of leather was used on 2005 C230 Kompressor coupe? I am currently using Lexol conditioner on my seats. Lexol's website mentioned treatment for the more common vegetable and chrome-tanned leather, however, certain leathers are not suitable (e.g. napped leathers, such as suede or glove soft leather, which call for treatment with lighter lubricants.) Please advise?

If you did not order the car with "leather" on 2005+ cars, it came with leatherette. so its really not leather. I compared it to my buddy's 05 c230k coupe, its a big difference from the real leather.

fyi. I just clean my seats with the armor-all leather wipes once in 2 weeks or so, so far they are still in great condition. except the part where my fat ass sits on, its a little loose! hahaha

As I understand it, Lexol is very good stuff.

I just switched to Lexol cleaner and conditioner (2 bottles)
after using Zymol for several years.

The Lexol is a more watery compound compared to the Zymol,
the Zymol is more like a cream, and you are supposed to warm the leather before applying. '

Either one is very good.

Is the leather in the 2002 c230 coupe real leather, or the leatherette?

Just as it was stated above by advans, unless you have the Avant Garde package, or you have the option code listed for leather seats; then they are what MB calls MB-Tex material. It's a nice way of saying faux leather, pleather, leatherette, or just plain vinyl covered cloth seats. They are simple to take care of, MB recommends cleaning them with warm water on a rag or a very mild detergent.
