MB Interior Color Names

I have a 1995 MB SL 320 in Imperial Red with 274 Java interior. I'd like to know the official MB name of the Leather interior. Is it Palomino or Saffron?

If you have the VIN , I can check the color code for you. I have never heard of Saffron though. Are you trying to find floor mats?

Java was not an official color for the SL until 99. PArchment and Palomino were the "beige/brown" colors for 95

Go to EPC
Enter your VIN
Look up upholstery under seats
See what it's called

The official colour is as lkchris reports but I guess MB may have used different marketing names, even locally. Like the car exterior colours are called differently in the US compared to Europe in some cases even today.

Maybe, but not necessarily

The interior on my 1988 W124 is commonly referred to as Palomino (trim code 174), but the build sheet lists it as saffron.

In diong some research as to the "official" interior color of my car, build code 264 for the 1993 year of W124s comes back as Saffron/Java. In looking at some upholstery sites, java is a sort of chocolate brown. Saffron is VERY close to the Palomino/Parchment color. I'm still not sure though which color my car is. It's hard to tell online. It really is a buttery, orangish medium tan. The VIN is WDBEA34E4PB923203...

Any ideas? Any leads on interior panels. I'm hunting for center B pillar panels, but the big long one with the saftey belt (adjustable) hole, and the lower plastic panel.

Thanks,

Aaron

I believe that the Java/Saffron designation covers both North American and European deliveries. If so, my guess is that yours is Saffron. That fits better with your general buttery tan description. Whatever its official name is, the part numbers are:
1) 124-690-81-25-8320 (B pillar panelling, left)
2) 124-690-82-25-8320 (B pillar panelling, right)
3) 124-692-03-22-8326 (B pillar bottom covering, left)
4) 124-692-04-22-8326 (B pillar bottom covering, right)

If you also need the sliding belt adjustment piece:
5) 124-690-15-30-8326 (left)
6) 124-690-16-30-8326 (right)

All of these pieces are color-coded to your trim code 264. Buying these pieces new will be $$$$. The long panelling pieces alone run about $325 each.
