Official Colour Help please!

Wonder if anyone can help: I'm buying a secondhand CLK in the UK and wading through the various websites. The official dealer ones are OK, but in several of the others a car is advertised as 'grey' or 'blue' etc. Is there anywhere I can go on the web or call to find out the official mercedes colour designation, provided I have the car reg no?

Not from the car registration number, no. Owners can change them, can't they.

If you got hold of the car's VIN, and decoded it, you would find out what the paint code, and the colour name is. For instance, mine is Paint 744U. Brilliant silver metallic. There are many different versions of silver on MBs, so this area is a bit compicated.
