I have half leather seats in C class w204 2009, heated electric.

Is it possible to have the cloth middle sections on front and back seats changed to leather, any ideas on price, and recommendation of trimmer in Leicester area.
 
Whilst it's certainly possible to do, and most good trimmers could do this, I'm just wondering if a better way would be to buy a used interior from a write off or similar?

This may be a cheaper way round it and you'll get all the bits you need (door cards etc) in matching leather, whereas having your cloth sections changed may be noticeable, possibly not in colour but certainly in wear. The supplier may even take your original ones in p/x.

I don't know any upholsterers in your area sorry. :(

The half leather is actually not even real leather . As suggested above could be a cheaper option.
 
Go for a second hand leather interior and sell your old one :thumb:

Agree best option and then selling yours will recoup some of the monies spent :thumb:
 
I have to confess I've never understood the desire for leather seats, I find cloth far more comfortable, don't get the wife complaining she is sliding about and I don't get my backside burnt getting in on a hot day or all sweaty in hot weather.
 
I've done exactly, as many above suggested, and replaced the half-leather interior in my old (now sold) W168, with a low mileage full leather one (heated front seats were a bonus).

My old interior offset a price a little bit too, and the chap was happy to accommodate.

Certainly a much cheaper option than to re-trim, and, unless the job is done by the very best (and expensive) specialist, much better quality too.

Mercedes seems to be phasing out cloth as a standard material and standardising plastic seats on a lot of their models with no other option other than real leather. What's wrong with cloth now?
