Step back 40 years to a Mercedes 450SL or SEL and their interior looks as modern as today. Many of them are still in excellent condition now.
Interesting take. I personally feel the old Japanese interiors have aged better. Their designs in the 90s were so plain that they didn't even look that old in the '00s and early '10s. To add to that, the materials seemed to have held up better.

When I sit in an old Bimmer or Merc a lot of the plastics have gone to hell, stuff is chipping and creaking, etc.
Make BMW Great Again
