    Hi,

    Just as a FYI - thought I would post some shots of my c63 interior - the car is a 507 Coupe and I went for the alcantara mix on the door inserts and seats - it was the no cost option over full leather but I couldn't find any photos before I ordered it, so thought I would add some...

    cheers

    Like the stripes :D
    I think the alcantara is fantastic aswell. I saw a 507 in Merc Sheffield where the seat bolsters etc are porcelain with the middle bit being alcantara, very nice indeed

    Hmm not so sure. Alcantara is very hard wearing. In my experience, whats happens is the alcantara can react to the sweat/salt in your hand, causing the tiny pile to stick together. This results in a smooth sheen. To my dismay I had this problem on my steering wheel after only 6000 miles so I complained to the MB dealer that my alcantara had worn. I left the car with Service Manager and after 5 minutes he presented an as new wheel! The tip is to gently agitate the pile with a suede shoe brush once in a while just like you would on your suede shoes!!
