Interiors
W124 interiors were available in Cloth, MB-Tex, leather and velour. All these materials have their advantages and disadvantages but leather is what most UK buyers want. The toughest material is MB-Tex ("Taxi Trim") and the rarest is velour

Post-facelift cars used different materials and finishes to early models. Unless stated these details refer to post-facelift cars

Cloth
Late cloth interiors used fabric with a softer finish and more muted patterns. Common colours are Black, Grey and Mushroom. Door cards have a moulded-in panel in matching cloth and a padded nylon finish to the door pocket

MB-Tex
MB-Tex has narrow longitudinal panels, like early leather seats, but without the front rail. Common colours are Grey and Mushroom but there are Black, Green and Brown MB-Tex interiors about. Door cards have a moulded-in panel in textured vinyl and plastic door pockets

Leather
Leather interiors on late cars have wide lateral panels on the squab with a deep front rail. Door cards have a set in panel with ruffled leather and plastic door pockets

Velour
Velour interiors are extremely rare. They have SL-style ribbed edges and look like a very expensive version of a 1980's sofa. An early saloon in Thistle Green with green velour is a retro treat!
