Question Whose stupid idea was this?

Mercedes Benz gives you three options for Ambient Light Color on the 2015+. White, blue and solar (yellow)



But the buttons and controls are not RGB and only come in yellow.



So the only logical choice is SOLAR (Yellow), if you want everything to look right.



You mean they couldn't afford RGB button leds??

I completely agree and that's the reason I only consider yellow the right choice.

Looks fine to me as is and I use the blue lighting. “Shrugs”, 1st world problems can be terrifying

The 2019 C300 gives you 64 color choices, but you still only get yellow buttons.

Interesting.

The buttons on my 2018 E coupe are white backlit. I have the 64 color option as well.

So, there is no way to control the color of the buttons on either C class or E? I'll have to check my 2019 E450 Cabriolet when I pick it up this Wednesday.

I don't think so, but you will have to see if it stands out to you.

Correct, for the E it's either E43 or now E53.
