What colour is your W204

The poll is for the people that now have or waiting delivery of a new W204.
I went for Iridium Silver because it looks good even when dirty.

Different Countries Different names ;

Corneol Red is Barola Red ?

Tanzanite Blue is Capri Blue ?

Tenorite Grey is Steel grey ?

What is Periclase Green, is that in colour option list ?

and Black ;

What Black ; Diamond Black or ObsidianBlack (or original name Obsidianschwarz)

or Green Black (I saw it past MB models )

External Colour choise is very hard question ! Because you live with it always like wife

I am confused with Palladium Silver and Tenorite(Steel Grey ) and choosed palladium because bottom of the iridium silver and Tenorite(Steel Grey )

I thought this would happen.

As far as I can see on other country MB sites the following look the same.

Corneol Red is Barola Red

Fire Opal is Mars Red

Tanzanite Blue is Capri Blue

Tenorite Grey is Steel grey

Black or Obsidian Back is Black for this Poll

Colors

A few years back, for $1000 MB would paint any car any color they used on any model. That's over and above the metallic charge.

No more. The customers must have liked it so they cancelled the option.

they do here in OZ. it is called PA1, special order paint. Factory must have a designo department, so no cars from East London (SA) or Vance (USA) will have PA1

Special order paint

< <they do here in OZ. it is called PA1, special order paint. Factory must have a designo department, so no cars from East London (SA) or Vance (USA) will have PA1>>

Makes one wonder, considering how many MBs are sold in the US, why they treat their US customers with such disdain. Or perhaps scorn might be a better word.

How would you prioritize customers who pay 50% of the original price for a product? That is usually called wholesale and will do without the retail "service".

Just trying to give some perspective...

Spelling

Corneol Red is Barola Red ? Periclase Green..>>

It's Carneol red, Barolo Red and this is the wrong spelling for the green but I'm too lazy to look it up at this late hour.

Barolo is a wine and the color of my C300.

Is this forum a spelling competition or a place to discussion about the cars we love, so what if ismeto (the original post reply) misspelled "Carneol red & Barolo" for the last two and a half months no one else did and here in Aus Periclase green is the correct spelling either that or MB made a big mistake on their web site & brochures.

Look at the price of these cars in the US versus anywhere else in the world. The US consumer has said countless times that he wants the cars cheaper. There was a time when a MB was quite an expensive car, and they were built to order. This is becoming less and less so, especially with the cars becoming cheaper in both nominal and real terms.
