Are you that special person who always puts their mark on their possessions? If so, then of course you want to personalize your Mercedes-Benz seats. It’s not that the seats aren’t great already; Mercedes-Benz is one of the best built vehicles on the world. The problem is they’re just not you. Off you go then, to the following great companies to upgrade your Mercedes-Benz.
Brabus is a company known for its after-market builds to up the power of the engine. Recently, they have worked on adding interiors to their product line and have a number of options for certain Mercedes-Benz series. Brabus has great interiors for the Mercedes-Benz E-Class Coupe. These covers come in white or a two-color combination seat that wraps the passenger in comfort and luxury.
Brabus provides these seats in red/black, orange/black or grey/black. Customers can have their trim and floor mats designed to match their seat choice. For the Mercedes-Benz SL class, Brabus provides leather seats that are etched in perfect one-inch squares. The etchings add a surface that looks professional yet sporty. These etching covers come in black, beige, beige /black, and yellow/black.
All of these color schemes can be carried on to the rest of the interior of the car. The Mercedes-Benz SLK class comes with the option of seats that are covered with a combination of square etched and non-etched seat covers. These seats come in black, beige, light blue and grey. Again, you can extend this pattern to the rest of the car. Brabus offers the same combination seats for the G-class SUV, but in the colors of brown, black, beige and red. Combinations of these colors are available with black borders. For the Mercedes-AMG GT/S high-performance car, Brabus offers seats in a choice of medium blue or black. Each seat has a chrome badge etched into the head rest.
If your Mercedes-Benz model is a bit older or a classic than the newer ones offered by Brabus, a popular place to check out is Upholstery World. These folks sell seat kits that will replace your seat covers in a variety of colors. These are high quality leather seats. It is recommended that you purchase the front and back seats at the same time in order for your colors to match.
Mercedes-Benz owners strongly suggest having these kits installed by a professional upholsterer. Upholstery World feels so strongly about this that they don’t include instructions with the kits. The seat will also need a seat pad to give the seat its shape along with foam which can be supplied by the installer. Not all models have available seat pads, but many cars need to replace or repair this pad after years of wear. Upholstery World will send you swatches of leather so you can see the color and texture of the kits. Some kits come in vinyl as an alternate choice. This company will also send you carpet and other interior replacements. Sheep skin covers are also offered by this company.
GAHH is another company that makes seat covers from a variety of European hides and materials. They ship world wide and will do almost any style of seat in any leather they have. Their customer service will help with any problems you might have. They feature grey, deep reds, and an assortment of browns, beiges and black. Choices in white are sometimes available. They can do quite a bit to come up for a kit for you, even for a very vintage Mercedes-Benz. Again, they recommend the kits be installed by a professional upholsterer. Their leather covers come in a variety of embossed hides that can be mixed with flat hides of a similar color to make a unique look for your car. Matching carpet and other siding can also be ordered in the same color to complete the total look of your car.
If you need to actually replace the seat itself, you can order them from Mercedes-Benz dealer if you car is fairly new. If not, then you can look at a parts dealer that sells Mercedes-Benz parts direct to customers from their retail store or parts department. Be careful to track where the parts came from. You don’t want to replace damaged seats with another set of damaged seats. Seats are individual to each company and model and don’t allow for much variation due to space, air bags and electrical connections. Some OEM companies can build a seat based on the specs of your car, but there is no guarantee that it will fit exactly. For the best of the OEM companies, look at the various Mercedes- Benz forums online. They usually can direct you to an appropriate company that can handle your build. A good choice to get started is to follow or ask for advice on Benzworld.
After you spiff up your seats, you might want to take a look at some of the companies that sell modern door handles, buttons, shift rod covers, arm rests and other accessories to complete the updated version of your interior. A variety of accessories with the Mercedes-Benz logo on them are easily located at some of the companies mentioned above. Now, your Mercedes-Benz is totally decorated in your own style.
