Interior Color Safran vs. Palomino

The interior leather color of my car is safran (Saffron).

Does anyone know how this compares to Palomino? I am guessing palomino is more tan as saffron is more gold. But I am wondering how big of a contrast they are. Its hard comparing photos since lighting is never the same. And I did not find a color chart yet.

Wondering if anyone has any hands-on experience in matching these colors for interior part swaps, etc. If they look bad together, etc.

Mercedes interior color charts

Porsche Convertible Tops : BMW Seat Covers : Mercedes Leather Seats : Soft Top : Porsche Carpet : German Auto Tops Inc.

The colors/shades you mentioned are very different and IMO aren't very complimentary...but that's ultimately up to you.

Virtually any quality upholstery shop close to you will have sample charts and/or swatches. Or, use the link above to get to German Tops & Interiors to see their color charts and request that they mail you samples. The owner, John, or son Armen, know Mercedes cold and are quite helpful. Good Luck-
