Angry Lack of Leather on sides of Seats Cheap MB



Any one notice the feeling of cheap cloth close to the bottom sides of the seats where the Leather ends. I noticed it once while getting in and out of the car one day and now it really bothers me. I realize they have to use it for the seat covers but would it have killed Mercedes to add another couple inches of leather?

Lol yeah, I've noticed it too. Typically even if you have actual leather seats, often side/lower parts like that will be vinyl and on previous bmw/audi/vw that I've had over time these areas crack. Maybe that's why they went that route.

No big deal from my perspective. I suspect the sides are not leather anyway ... just the seat surfaces. I really do not notice it but I am sure it is a common approach used by most manufacturers..

Are your seats elevated to the highest setting ? Maybe I don't see it because I don't
need my seats that high up.

You can see it at all heights. Even my Honda has leather on the sides.

Mb gives a new meaning to “CheapSeats”

That's the part of the seat that contacts the height adjust. The cheap way out would have been to wrap the entire seat in leather and ignore the contact.

ok so I was right. when elevated to sit higher you can see it.
If at the lowest setting you can barely even see it.

They are not being cheap. Leather against the plastic seat base would make creaking sounds as you move around in the seat. They know what they're doing.

I’m sure the S-Class has burlap also, super luxurious.
