SIGNS OF A WORN-OUT INTERIOR
Signs your interior needs a revamp are extensive but some of the symptoms could include split, cracked or stained leather. These are obvious but ignoring them will only cause the problem to get worse and should you choose to sell your car, you may not get the price you want.
Original seats will lose their form after time, with the foam inserts suffering offering little to no support, resulting in an uncomfortable seating position and potential chronic injury.
Your carpets are on the receiving end of all manner of contaminants. Simply hoovering these will not show you the full picture. Bacteria will live in these areas and as such, should be replaced.
Beyond the soft materials in your cabin, are the hard woods and composites used by Mercedes-Benz in the seventies and eighties. The R107 marked a new era for the use of plastic inside, which can be found on the door cards, centre console, dashboard amongst other areas. Alongside this is the use of wood of varying colours and in up to ten shapes to sit according to the arrangement of your dashboard controls.

WHAT WILL IT DO FOR YOU?
Reviving your interior will completely change your understanding of what it means to enjoy and drive a classic Mercedes-Benz.

WHAT WILL IT DO FOR THE CAR?
With a better than new cabin condition, your 107 will now withstand years and years of use; also appealing to any potential buyers should you choose to sell your 107. A revived interior will enable you to command a higher sale price given the rarity of other examples available with better than new interiors.
