    Just spotted today in Blackpool a gorgeous Tansanite 216 coupe. No time to take a piccie and ok it was a CL500 and not an AMG but I can forgive it for that. Rare car in a rare colour - fantastic looking in bright sunshine. Very nearly jealous ;)

    I wish that more people would order Mercedes in a colour other than Silver, Black, or Grey.

    I am the proud owner of an E350 Coupé in Cavansite Blue, just to be different ;)

    Down-pipes and a map could sort that out though :)

    Although lots of chatter on the USA sides, and rebuilds of engines by Tasos in dubai... Mainly engines that are very aggressively tuned and pushing the stock turbo's to their limits.

    Agree about the silver and black but grey is actually quite rare. It took me well over a year of diligent searching before I found the grey 216 I was looking for.

    I dislike silver exterior and black interior, I've been lucky (willing to wait) and my Mercedes have been Violane (with Orion Grey Leather), Obsidian Black (with Orion Grey Leather), Kallaite Green (with beige leather) and now Tansanite Blue with (Orion Grey Leather). Admittedly the smart was blue with black leather interior but no other interior colours were available and the 911 was Silver (albeit GT Silver so looked any colour depending upon the light) - it did have Coco leather interior though which was very nice indeed.

    My last CLK was Silver and over the years have had too many Silver cars. I love Black, if someone else cleans and polishes it every week!

    I love the Tanzanite Blue, but after looking for a few months the Cavansite Blue came up at the right time and price.
