Arrow My seat must have been made just before QUIT'N time....WTF?

Just noticed, I have one panel stich on my rear seat that was done with RED thread instead of silver.

Like Detroit - is this the coveted Mercedes Benz COPO "one red stich" option?

Will I go faster, or get better mileage with this feature?

cool, like finding a rare coin. Probably at the end of the spool to warn the seamstress that the thread was in need of replacement. Throw some bleach on there and dye it away. LOL

Careful, if the bleach only works 50% it'll be pink stitching.....

Hey, it's only the blemishes that make the lady unique! Enjoy the story you'll get to tell until your dyeing day! (pardon the pun...)

Go show it to your SA and ask them to either replace the seat or give you a nice MB coffee mug against it...
