Please Help Me Decide Colors

I originally ordered Magno Cashmere matte white paint with Designo white over black interior - but then I saw Magno Alinite which is matte silver - and I love it, so I'm going to change my order to the matte silver paint. I already have 2 white cars, and I think matte silver looks like brushed aluminum or stainless steel and since the order was only placed a week ago, it's not too late to make this change.

My real question is if the Designo white interior will be a good match for a silver exterior? I love the white but am thinking that maybe the Designo red might be a more conventional match. Opinions?



PS: This is the matte silver on a 2013 SL.

I think the matte silver will look better with the designo red interior! (SL has that stupid curved strip in the lights!)

Agreed that the red interior is the better choice or agreed that you also hate the LED strip - or both?

Dr-Nab, please do me a favor and edit your post to delete the comment about the SL and the LED strips. Everyone is focusing on that and not responding to the original question! I've already edited my original post to correct it from SLK to SL, anyway.

I like the silver, but not the mat finish. IMHO, it's going to be a maintenance problem.
Best of luck with your color choice.

Thank you. I've read that you don't wax it and have to use car wash detergents that don't contain wax. It's got to be easier to maintain than a glossy black car! At least, I hope so.

I like the look of the mat, but after reading the 2012 E550C owner's manual instructions for the mat finish, there's no way I'd get it.
Don't forget about bird droppings, tree sap, tar, etc. If you can, try to find the owner's manual and read the instructions.

Climbing Mt. Everest is easier than maintaining a glossy black car. Trust me.

I vote for the red interior. A little prejudiced here.

Red interior! looks sexy! but I agree, I hate it when my car gets dirty. It stands out so bad! but then again when it is newly washed it does look sleek.
