I have a 2007 W203 with 'leather' interior.

Can anyone advise on the extent of the leather inside. Are all the seats leather or is it just the centre panels of the seats. What about the area between the two rear seats, the headrests, dashboard and the inlays to the doors. It all looks a bit leather...ish but non of it smells like leather.

My curiosity is that I see little point wasting leather cleaner and conditioner on vinyl components.

All of the interior is finished in "Artico" a man made artificial leather,, the steering wheel and gear shift knob are the only things that may be in leather if these were ordered on the car

Shame you cannot get the leather 'smell' with the Artico. Several people have looked at my car and believe the Artico IS leather. Anyone know of a spray or something to impart a leather smell to the Artico?

Just go to a coach trimmer and get a bag of off cuts and shove it all under the seats,,that works wonders,, also I think that you can get "the leather sprays" on Ebay

Not sure if leather sprays will be suitable for or would damage the Artico?? Anyone done this?
