Mine is petrol as well. Nice color, fits the W123 quite well.

The first 300D I looked at buying was that color. I wanted a wagon and not a sedan though.

With the help of color code charts (lit and web) I think my educated-guess is more often accurate for the most part. It helps too having a "petrol" coupe as well. Many W123 nuts like us often have these colors & codes memorized by now... through the years of experience and brand OCD.
