anyone have side-by-side pics of DIAMOND SILVER versus the standard iridium silver?
I'm in the market for an SLK and curious to know exactly how blue the diamond silver is versus iridium ....thanks in advance for the help!

I know this is not exactly what you want, but it's the best I can do. Here are a couple of photos of my pewter car that you can compare to one of the many Iridium photos posted.
Both colors are beautiful with the pewter a little darker than iridium and with a hint of gold.
Hope that helps some until some can give you an actual side-by-side.

Sorry, I don't have pictures either but there is a big difference between the 2 colors. I have the iridium silver and I think is is "shinier" but "darker" than the diamond silver. The diamond silver is a "flatter" silver but seems brigher and whiter under the sun. HTH...I am of course partial to the iridium.

Diamond silver is light blue, iridium silver is your traditional silver. Here's a good pic for comparison,

Here's a pic of my Diamond Silver:
It changes with the light, sometimes blueish other times like it's frosted.

So Diamond Silver should be called Frost Blue or something, most of time these color names can be confusing or contradictory like BMW's Carbon Black is actually a very dark iridescent blue. But Pewter is a great color and that's my future SLK with charcoal leather.
