Yes with leather you get the leather smell, and you get the nice stitching on the door panels, but I can think of better ways to spend the extra $1,550 they want for leather. Heck that would pay for the P1 package and still have money left over for all weather mats.
P1 is standar on all C350

MB Tex standar on the C, E, ML, CL clases

I wanted leather rather than the electronics. Pano, MM would've added almost 4K to the selling price. I tend to hang onto cars long after they're paid-off. Besides, it's my wife's car, this is mine....








The leather in my van is holding up pretty well considering we have a 3 and 5 year old, four years and 90K miles and it still cleans up well, but I don't know how well MB leather will hold up. Our C is for my wife, not the kids, so we're not so worried.



Yes, I don't expect the interior to be completely leather, but the face of the seat and door cards/panels are leather and you can see the difference there, not just in the stitching. I just feel if I'm going to buy a luxury car, it should have leather...but then again, all of my cars have/had leather.
I'm with you, I got leather, sorry but I cant stand the smell of the MB Tex
