    Not sure myself, though the bottom half does look like Almandine.

    A definitive answer would probably come from the knowledgeable people over on the 190 Forum. I appreciate that it's not a 190, though there's a lot of owners over there.

    Is the plate not still under the bonnet with the paint codes on?

    Yip agreed 582- Imperial Red. I’ve never seen the plate code for two tone but you’d think common sense would say it would be next to the main paint colour code! This is MB mind

    Put in the VIN to a few of these Decoder sites and all came back with Imperial Red, no mention of the lower half

    That’s what I’m finding as well. Doesn’t seem also from what I’m finding that Imerial was two toned. Almandine yes, other reds yes, and usually with Navarra red 521...or if clad 3521
    As Daveenty says, maybe the specialist forums will reveal more?

    It doesn’t- I also looked again at your slam panel plate and above and to the right of the 582 code there is also a code 620. Might be coincidence (I’m no expert I hasten to add) but that comes out as ‘Verkehsrot’ which means bright red. Whilst I can’t find that on Mercedes colour code lists (none that I can find anyway), I found...https://colorndrive.com/gb/touch-up-paint/mercedes-atego-verkehrsrot-3620,84038/details
    Hope that helps and not a red herring! (Excuse the pun)

    Code 620 just means that the car has a catalytic convertor fitted.

    Here is a list of colour combinations

    COLOR NUMBERS I COLOR NAME I USED WITH OUTSIDE PAINTWORK I
    I------------------------------------------------------------------I
    NO.7700 ALTO GREY I 040 ,122 ,199 I
    NO.7738 SATO GREY I 147 I
    NO.7176 MUSSEL GREY I 172 ,651 ,702 I
    NO.6211 KIWI GREEN I 249C,254 ,261 ,815 I
    NO.6856 TROPICAL GREEN I 249D,256 I
    NO.5301 ANDOR BLUE I 348 ,355 ,900 ,929 I
    NO.8477 CHINCHILLA I 432 ,441 I
    NO.8482 CHIMNEY BROWN I 475 ,485 I
    NO.7166 VIOLETT GREY I 481 I
    NO.3521 NAVARRA RED I 512 ,540 ,587 I
    NO.3515 TARTAN RED I 568 I
    NO.1631 SAFARI BEIGE I 623A I
    NO.1658 LIGHT IVORY I 623B I
    NO.7177 STRATUS GREY I 735 ,751 I
    NO.7181 ATLAS GREY I 744 ,752 I
    NO.6250 LAGO I 888 I
    NO.5309 RIO BLUE I 904 I
    A = UP TO IDENT NO.: B 365987 I
    B = FROM IDENT NO.: B 365988 I
    C = UP TO IDENT NO.: B 431235 I
    D = FROM IDENT NO.: B 431236 I

    So 3515 Tartan Red should be the colour to go with Paint code 568

    But the op has 582 Imperial which is the confusion
    Hopefully he’s got on better on a specialist forum for 124s
