...but per Ron's post not looking forward to cleaning them?

Question demo car

I just went to see the 450 at my local dealer/blue with brown/gray interior/natural walnut trim.
I don't know if the mb tex brown and gray looks different from the leather, but I'm rethinking my interior now.
Has anyone else seen this combo? What did you think?

Also, I would have liked to have seen the pano roof, but this one only has the moon roof. My husband, impressed with the size and heft of the car, may go ahead and trade in his 2018 GLS for one. I'm shocked.

I have not seen the Espresso/Magma in person, but from the photos I don't care for it - see my post #2498. Pretty sucky color selection for this vehicle, I must say.

I've seen the MB-Tex black seats in two GLE 350's and the MB-Tex Macchiato in a GLE 450. My wife and I don't care for black interiors and while the black MB-Tex isn't for us, it's not bad looking. I really liked the Macchiato in the 450 and wish I would have talked her into that color. We ordered our GLE with the Espresso Brown leather and I'm holding my breath that I'll like it. If not, it will be a long wait for the next one which will be the Macchiato leather or maybe even MB-Tex. I must admit the MB-Tex in Macchiato was very nice, I thought it was leather until the salesman told me otherwise.

The 450 demo had the AMG Line Exterior and Pano roof which is huge! You'll love it.

I was just reviewing the DOG and notice 114A Espresso Brown (MB-Tex) is not paired with Magma Grey, but 204A is (Espresso Brown / Magma Grey). An omission in the DOG perhaps?

The Macchiato / Magma Grey look great together in MB-Tex so it likely looks great in leather.

It may be the pairing of Espresso Brown / Magma Grey (204A) that may be the problem for some including me. Those colors just don't seem to go together. We'll see.

Is this the link you mean? Someone posted it a few days ago. They haven't yet enabled the "Build" button for the new GLE.

Here is an example of what I was referring to above. The Magma Grey does seem to go that well with Espresso Brown. Hopefully it looks better in person.

We have designo Espresso Brown leather in our GLS 550 but the carpets are also brown.

The gray/brown looked so bad (my husband agreed) to me that I'm probably not going to change it unless when I see the leather version this weekend it looks really different/better.
The Nashville mercedes site has a picture of a white 450 with black interior and what looks like the glossy linden trim. It looks very very nice.

Yes, it is. The photo of the MB-Tex one is identical to the leather. Also, in the German guide ARTICO espressobraun/magmagrau is listed.

You mean you are going to change it, correct? Don't wait so long that your order locks - that happens without warning. I doubt the leather version will look much different, only smell different!

GLE delays

This was posted on the MBCA forum:

"Due to the government shutdown approval for the car was delayed in the US. Their ramp up has also been only 45% of what the expected, due to supplier issues. I only know this because I work for a supplier to their facility. There are major delays right now to try to 'flood the market.' However they are making them and they plan to make more more per week than originally thought. The W205 will slowly be ramping down in MBUSI, and this will allow for extra capacity for the GLE, GLS and GLS Maybach edition to come out. They will also make the EQC at MBUSI eventually." - Peter Emslander

Okay, yall

Mercedes of Austin has a 450, gray, with amg exterior, metal weave trim, black interior. I'm done. It's beautiful. I
will order the black leather, and get the car in white (probably, but dang that gray looks very nice). Just wow.

The Selenite does look good (like in the GLE 53 promo materials) - wish I had gotten it. With the grey I would spec the Night Package.

Well, I still may get the polar white. I think they both will look great. And both will look good with black interior. I think the console trim is piano black if one gets the metal weave?

Safest SUVs

Both the current GLC & GLE are in the top 8 safety picks according to Car & Driver. They both get top ratings according to NHTSA & IIHS. I'm sure the new models will be at least as good.

Good, I think that will do nicely (I'm a pianist, and I just traded my maple kawaii for a black mason and hamlin, so I'm good with piano black)

Greg is going to be so disappointed that you discovered this first.

But thanks for letting everyone know.

I just started building my GLE on the US configurator and noticed the following:

1. In the DOG you can select Heated steering wheel and Wood/leather steering together but not on the configurator. It's one or the other.

2. Just like in the DOG Nappa Leather or MB-Tex is the same price for the Upper dash and Door trim.

3. The Nappa Leather Upper dash and Door trim option ($700) is only available with the Black/Magma Grey Nappa leather, no other colors apparently.
