Sadly, to add to your confusion different countries give different names to the two standard shades of blue that are available for the E-class.

UK = Teallite Blue (As in my signature)
Tanzanite Blue (which is darker)

I must be cracking up as I could have sworn you mentioned the word 'blue' in your post? I will have to blame the morphine.

Melanite is one of two metallic blacks, (not counting Green Black)

Thanks to the modern nano paint technology that is used on the newer 211 series, dark colours no longer suffer from the 'swirl' marks that were all so often seen.

Is black a practical colour for the warmer parts of Australia??? No doubt the climate control will cope though.

The majority of subscribers to this excellent forum are based in the US and hopefully now they know you are talking about a metallic black you might get a better response.

I also enjoyed looking at the first thread on this forum that shows dozens of pictures of various coloured E-class

Are you sure you did not edit out the word blue in your original post

Good luck with your choice of colour,

John

Welcome, buddy!

My wait for my W211 was about a good 8-9 months. Shouldn't take that long for a regular E, though.

Enjoy your stay on the forums.

I think itís me that probably still holds the record. I ordered my car (see specification below) on September 5, 2004, and picked it up in Sindelfingen on October 2, 2004

Welcome to the forum.

I had a very early UK car and had to wait about 6 months -

It was worth waiting for.......good luck and enjoy
