W126 Bumpers and Molding Color

I was wondering if someone could tell me what year it was that the W126 came with the same color bumpers and moldings as the car (instead of the grey color), or was that an option?

What a beautiful color!

Is that the factory paint? I think it's the prettiest color I've seen on a W126.

What is the factory name of the color?

79,200 miles.

1973 280SE 4.5, 170,000 miles. 568 Signal Red, Black MB Tex. "The Red Baron".

I think in 1989 when the last major changes too place. Updated interior, stereo, and the same color body moulding.

That is factory paint and I have an original brochure for the 1989 s class lineup and there is a picture in there for a 300sel with the exact same color and the moldings and bumpers are not grey.

I have seen 1989-1990-1991 with grey trim, that is why I'm confused.
