Oh dear, that doesn't work for me. But it is at least better than that hideous bright red leather I have seen in an old ad for a W210 E55 sometime back.

Having just got a silver W211, I am coming round to the idea that it is the best colour available for that shape. Black leather for me all the way unless its one of the designo colours in a C63 like sand or porcelain and black.

I like it, but then I am colourblind, so it looks quite restrained to me. Perhaps a colourblind person wil buy it, we are 10% of the population, I think

Doesnt look too bad to me (the interior), harks back to the days of the old ponton and fintail red leather interiors!
The exterior colour isnt so much bad, but it somehow makes the car look more conservative and less expensive, not that that is necessarily a bad thing either..

Sure as hell beats the 'Stepford Combo' of Ubiquitite Silver and Mogadon Black.

You ain't gonna notice any colour at all at 138 mph - apart from a pulsing blue light in the rear view mirror.

There is nothing more magnificent that a silver Mercedes with a black interior with black head lining. All those designo options are a license for people with bad taste to get their way.

Silver BMWs with blue and yellow squares and flashing lights trump everything in the game.

I thought you already knew this from Nottingham ?

I looked at three S212 E63's and the Iridium Silver looked the most impressive. It looks impressive on a big car, making it look even bigger.

I'm not sure I follow this, all I know about Nottingham is a mate lives there and theres a curry place a stones throw away. Handy.

The flip paints give me headaches and are a nightmare to repair.
