    Who would wear leather socks?

    My preference would be cloth trim, but leather is probably more durable, and can be colour matched for touching up.

    I find myself always drawn to cars with leather when I am looking to buy, and talk myself into this be a 'must have'. But to be honest, once purchased I'm not too fussed about it and their much hotter/colder than material so that can be a pain too.

    I prefer leather because it is easier to clean and smells nice :)

    Only Mercedes I have drven with cloth seats was my father's old 260E. For me, leather is an absolute must. Mind you, I even wanted leather on my Rover 114, back in the day

    Having 3 children and another on the way, jelly babies come off leather better than cloth seats!

    Leather - easier to clean especially with a dog and kids

    Tbh comfort wise i have no preference but leather is definitely much easier to clean as im partial to grabbing a quick bite at lunch in the car and i dont think red cloth seats would look right :p

    I actually prefer to have both i.e part leather. Your bum doesn't slide around as much.

    Yeah I like leather seats or at the very least part leather. My E320 has 'leather' bits which are a nice look but I do like heated seats so I think it's a combination of the two for me! :)

    I like leather. Not the fake one (yeah Mercedes) but real. Especially when you have kids, if they leave a surprize of the seats just wipe it and like new again
