The interior of my 1989 W460 230GE is in amazing condition for its age and features the black/grey check cloth.

 

My question is…

 

Should I keep it ask it is or update it to a new black leather interior to match the exterior of the car that has been restored with a lot of bodywork and paintwork.

 

On one hand, it’s the original material and in good condition but on the other hand it dates the vehicle in a big way.

 

What to do??

Re: Interior Opinion

Be happy and feel superior that you have a classic G Wagen with an interior that is original and "in amazing condtion".

That's my vote anyway.

Re: Interior Opinion

stay original at least until you can get a set of recaro's in the same fabric [these are fairly common]

Re: Interior Opinion

Another vote to keep.  If you find a set of alternativer seats, at least keep the originasls to go with the car - it will pay dividends if you ever sell.

Re: Interior Opinion

And if the other seats are as good as that one appears to be I definitely wouldn't think about having them recovered. That one looks amazing.

Re: Interior Opinion

no an option, standard ones aren't as supportive, great seats I'd keep them if I were you
