In the OP, #1 looks like a 1950's kitchen appliance color, #2 would go best on an SL, and #3 is OK but just OK. My personal preference would be for an anthracite gray exterior and a light gray interior.

You can't go wrong with a bunch of gold and chrome on your car. (Champagne Metallic)

haven't been a huge fan of that color, but yours seems to have exellent paint.

plus i'll give you an extra point for the 8-holes off a 190e/300e sport or 400e

more of a 70's color - but one of the few good ones from that era.

alibassi (over in vintage) has/ had? an slc he repainted in that color. very sharp. (and i usually think the slc looks , uh, disjointed ? , but that car rocks.)

Psh, everyone knows that the Brown Metallic was the coolest color! Like my brother's 300D!

Please a dark green TD

I don't like most of the colors that have been posted. Suppose from what I've read my Black/Palomino is a desireable combo. Luckily it does match my Sunday car. However what I'd really like to see, is the darkest green
MB used, on a 300TD with Palomino interior. Anyone have pics?

Closest I could find, not an original color (original was nickel green, a lighter shade).
