I'm not sure but that doesn't sound like an OE color. If it has already been repainted then you won't devalue it by changing the color, and I really wouldn't want a purple car either. Black looks best on newer Mercedes, with silver as a close second. But I would advise you paint it a color that was originally offered from the factory. If that is the original color, I would not change it.
According to most on here, even the sound systems on the new cars leave something to be desired, but I like my Bose system. Check with a quality car audio shop to see what they recommend. There is also an Audio & Telematics forum here (just scroll down until you see the technical area) and search those posts for threads about cars of your approximate vintage. BTW, Mercedes calls your chssis a W124.
