So I'm fixing up a 2000 Mercedes Benz E55 AMG. I bought this car for my brother in 2016 when he was living here in Texas and decided to buy it back this year. The seats are in poor shape but it's totally rust free. I want to do a budget resto and am wondering if I can snag a pair of used seat covers on my next trip back to the UK as UK interiors tend to hold up better. Does anyone have any leads for W210 interiors? Preferebly in two tone with light grey inserts.

Thanks

Kindig-IT Restorations in Utah are awesome when it comes to fixing cars.
I always watch the show.

I think Kindig and Foose are the best auto restorers.

One of these shops can make you a special interior for the E55 if you don't find the original stuff?

Thanks, I have upholstery guys here that can make them but they're never 100% the same unless you want to change the front and backs. Texture , color will be slightly different. Hence why i'm looking for original.

One or two...
The problem is, they are relatively rare cars here. Good luck with your search

@ scrappers you will one day find what you're looking for.
It will take time.
Probably easier to buy a parts car from Southfork ranch and remove the parts you need and scrap the rest. ;)

W210 was a sad child.
