Upholstery FAQs - Material Sample Colors

Most W123 coupes were originally upholstered in either MB-Tex vinyl or German leather. We have most of the factory colors for both materials which we can use to manufacture the seat kits. Some European models used cloth/velour but we only have a limited selection of this material.

Our seat kits will be delivered to you pre-sewn and can be installed by an amateur restorer but they are still more appropriate in the hands of a professional installer. The reasons being, no instructions are included (since they are manufactured when ordered and not mass produced) and any installation of seat covers requires removal of the old seat covers. Also, most old seat pads will either require replacement or re-building/re-padding which also requires an installer.

If you want something unique, we also offer Sheepskin Seat Covers!

Our front seat kits include pre-sewn backrest, cushion, headrest and back panel covers for both seats. The covers for the optional armrest and are sold separately. We do recommend ordering all the covers at the same time for a perfect color match. All W123 coupe models had 6-pleat inserts. Like other W123 models, the original material of the seat is important. Early vinyl seats had 'Rossette' embossings while late ones had 'Pin-point'. Leather seats always had 'Rossette' embossings.

Rear seat kits would include the backrest, cushion and center armrest cover. It does not include any headrest covers. Like the front seats, those seats that orignally had vinyl had a slight difference compared to those who originally had leather. Rear seats usually match the front seats embossings.

Seat Pads are what gives the seats their shape. For the seat cover to look and feel exactly like the original, the seat pad must also be the same as the original. Since seat pads are also susceptible to wear, tear and shrinkage, they may require replacement or at least be re-built by an installer.

Like the seat kits, seat pads differ depending on original upholstery.
Many of these seat pads are unfortunately no longer available.

The W123 coupe's carpeted area never change through the course of the its model years. Early models originally had Import Loop before they changed to Feintuft Velour (FTV) in the later years.
