I ordered the Car on June26th. Picked it up August 31st. I was told the only way to get leather was to order from the factory.

Pards, nope... MB-Tex is still standard. Leather cost $1570 for the '09's. My erpats was disappointed but he liked the durability of the MB-Tex anyway.

I want Leather in mine and the dealer told me they searched the entire US and couldn't find one, I would have to order. They don't bring them with leather because very few opt for it.

Can you please post pics of the seats and door panels with the leather???

Thanks and congrats!

Congrats! Leather makes all the difference, doesn't it? I still love my C300's beige leather interior. After all, it is a Mercedes.

What all is "leather" in the leather interior?

I understand the leather door inserts and pull handles, but what about the sides and backs of the seats? How about the headrests and the rear fold-down center?

I am considering taking my car to a custom installer to convert from MB-tex to real leather.

Thanks, Bill

I just got my 08 and couldn't be happier either. I was cross shopping a GS350AWD...interesting to hear your comparison...

I settled for the MB after one drive. The Lexus took a lot of mental convincing. I love the car, it just didn't "move" me like the C350

The GS is a larger car, and feels it. It's not solid and does not have the sport/luxury feel. The front cabin feels smaller than the C, I'm 6' foot and the GS felt cramped. The Nav screen in the GS is not user friendly and was not very intuitive in it's use. But...it did have the Lexus reliability and never once in three years did I have to take in to service for a malfunction. The C350 is fun to drive !!

I thought that is what you would say. I came out of an IS250 and its funny, I like the looks of the car, the interior was quite well done and it was drob dead reliable...it just didn't have any soul.

I thought the GS would be a bit better, and the Lexus dealer was giving me a killer deal on one...but I figured I owed it myself to shop around. I have never owned a Benz but after driving the C about 1 mile it was done. I returned to the dealership and asked the salesman to "do it". Easiest car choice of my life.
