My New ML - Not Enough Citrine Brown & Almond Beige Love

I just picked up my Citrine Brown with Almond Beige leather '14 ML350 gas yesterday.
I would have never thought of choosing if it wasn't for a dealer demo in the showroom. I had walked in wanting a different combination, but saw the demo vehicle and it just looked amazing.
It's an odd paint & interior combination that most people would never choose, but I'm so glad I ordered it!
Especially at night the ambient lighting reflects against the Almond beige and makes the car feel like a million bucks.
The color is really hard to photograph correctly in daylight, but it looks best in pictures under fluorescent lighting.

The backup camera module looks to be new too if I remember correctly. It closes up into the trunk when it's not in use to keep it clean.

Here come the pics.....

Love the colour! My last ML was also a unique choice, peridot brown which was a nice green/brown hue. Everywhere I went I got compliments on it.

Enjoy your unique ride and be prepared for compliments!

What are the floor mats you have on the garage floor?

Parking mats to catch the snow melt off in the winter time. Only problem is that the water pools up fast, so you have to shop vac the water every 2 days. It's inconvenient but it's better than having the water mess up the garage floor.

Brand? Where did you get them? My garage has a small slope to the door but I would think about getting these.

The slope towards the garage door might be an issue. If you look at my pictures, my garage is very slightly sloped towards the center drain, and that's the edge of the mat where the water pools up.

Nice point about the camera in the back. I didn't know it folded in. Congrats on the vehicle too. Like that color a lot.

I believe that is the heated/cooled cupholders. Blue for cooling, red for heating

It's just not a color that's often talked about on the forums =)

Beautiful combination. I think you don't see many in the dealer inventory, so not many people see how nicely it brings out the ML's lines. It also really pops the chrome. One of my co-workers has one with chrome wheels and it really looks sweet on a sunny day.

We don't have "Citrine Brown" in the US but it looks similar to our Dolomite Brown. Are they the same color with different names for different markets, or are they actually different colors?
