    I'm collecting a 2016 E350d Coupe next week, it's the first Mercedes I've owned. Hopefully it will be trouble free and I won't be asking loads of questions. I usually keep cars for years or on a couple of occasions moved them on quick if I don't gel with them, so here goes.
    The car has got nappa leather in natural beige. The driver's seat needs cleaning, looks like the previous owner might have been wearing dark jeans or similar. Any ideas on the best way to clean them up?

    Welcome from a fellow E350 member :) Someone will tell you how to clean the seat (mine's black so don't have too many issues like that).

    Welcome to the forum and the world of Mercedes- it can become addictive! I had eight very happy years and 67k miles in my E350 Coupe.

    Welcome to the forum, I have an E350 S212 beautiful engines and love the car but I too keep getting tempted towards a coupe as I don’t need an estate these days.

    Collected the car yesterday. First impressions good so far.
    DAB seems very limited, but that could be me as I've not had chance to go through the instructions.
    I've had a go on the driver's seat, it's just one lower rear panel and I now suspect it's from a black leather trouser belt.
    I've had a go with Gliptone, it's improved slightly and the rest of the leather looks fresher. I will have another go. Only got a before image at the moment.

    That would be a C238, OP has a 2016 C207 - still a great car though!

    Same car and year as mine, I've had mine a month now and really enjoying it. The seller did a better job of polishing you car than mine.

    If you're planning on map upgrades and subscriptions to Mercedes Me services skip them and get the Carplay and Android Auto updates instead.

    Are your wheels 19"? Mine came with 18", look a little small but the ride is already too hard for me so pleased they weren't 19s.

    The Pirelli P Zeros the car came with were noisy at the front, plenty of tread left but the droning sound was ruining the car.

    I replaced all four with Michelin Pilot Sport 4 last week, can't comment on handling as I haven't driven the car enough before and after but the ride is nice and quiet now on smooth roads.

    Same seats as mine.
    Love the colour

    Might take a specialist cleaning fluid (Gliptone is good, but has its limits) or a cleaner tradesman to remove a worn in mark

    Worth doing though, else it will niggle and niggle at you.....

    Here's the before and after images of the seat. Yes think it will niggle me and I will get it done professionally.
    The car has 19" wheels, with a good set of Michelin PS4S.
    Not sure yet about map upgrades etc, how does the carplay and android work, can you get spotify through it and what;s the cost.
    Like I said earlier, the DAB appears weak.
    Thanks for all the help so far.

    I posted about the Car Play and Android Auto update in here

    Would you do me a huge favour and share a pic of what's in your boot under the mat. Mine seems bare, not even a wrench or jack to remove a wheel. If it's missing tools I'd like to know what I need to replace, thanks.

    I don’t have the coupe but do have an E350 S212 purchased new which only came with the compressor and tube of gunk for temporary repair of tyres, I managed to buy a new genuine Mercedes jack, wheel brace and wheel chock from eBay for around £30 and they sit snugly in the spaces under carpet.
