Worst MB color?

Red? Doesn't seem to work with the understated design of a typical MB.

I like red but it catches Highway Patrol's eyes.

I like red on a Ferrari or Corvette, but not on Mercedes.

Silver, there are so many of them they are causing the earth to wobble on it's rotational axis. After silver is brown, they look like turds, there are mighty few of them.

But I agree that the red you posted is awful, unless you like maraschino cherries, that really is a bad hue.

Green may be reserved for something British.

The worst color is that of a car you have to use and you dislike.

A car would show appreciation for preventive maintenance by never leaving his owner stranded.

Defensive Driving is never having to say you're sorry: a true love story between man and machine.

Worst color? It probably has a different name, but most just call it "Flesh"

The red that W210 comes with is too dark. I liked one seeing pictures on ebay, but than spotted one on the street and changed my mind.
On some google adds on this forum I see MB in light green. UGLY
I know those colors are popular in Europe, but I am happy I don't see them in California.

BTW. I live in snobbish area and do see some unusual things.
Lady having the Home Depot guys loading gardening manure into her Royce Rolls?
Maybe it wasn't a manure, but still RR at Home Depot just doesn't work for me.
Than some cars deserve some colors.
The first time I saw red, convertible Royce Rolls I was shocked.

Kat, I knew a guy that loaded an S600 with leaves to take to a dump. It was silver.
