What colour for my W111 3.5 Coupe?

Now my bodyshell is in the paint shop and waits for the new colour. It was white but this is not my favorit. My car has tinted glass and original 300 SE chrome (factory fitted). I prefer the hubcaps to the alloys and it will get withe-wall tyres too (15mm) (205/65/R15-w126 steel-wheels and M100 caps) . The seats are in black leather.
My pagoda is in Db 516 (red), my 500 E W124 in almadinred 512 so why not 571 metallic red?
My favorite colour was ever 906 but with the chrome ?
Any Idea and fotos?

Thanks Pagodino

My coupe is Metallic Moss Green and I love it. Very Tutonic and fairly rare. If I had bought it new I would have chose that color. BTW-how do you know your car came from the factory with 300SE chrome? Is it on the data card?

I think 111 coupes look great in white.

Yes white coupes with black interiors are beautiful..No doubt . However , you must pick the color that tickles your fancy the most .....Choose wisely...Post some photos when you get it all done. I never get tired of looking at old benzes and especially coupes...

hi there

you should see pics of my 3.5 coupe its gold i believe called sand beige the color imho is just LOVLEY im soooooo pleased with it, i bought my car from CA and im in dubai and at first i wasn't so sure about the brown leather but i just love the gold color

and im glad i went with the car, i have had a brown int. before in a 3.5 coupe thats why i wasn't keen on it, as my previous car had a silver paint job and it was okay but should have been black to be hoesnt., but it was a repaint and not original factory color combo

its true third time lucky, this is my third 3.5 coupe and my last the second was white over a real nice red color but that was a MA car so it had rust issues

this is a keeper, as you know its very hard to find good w111 coupe let alone a 3.5 coupe

good luck and do please keep us posted with whatever color you decide

I am struggling with this too. Here are some pics.
I think this one really shows how much visual bang the met red gets compared to white

All these are nice but no standout. No good for black interior.

This is close to what my car came like from the factory. Creme with a mercedes blue roof and interior. Don't know what to make of it.

I think this looks quite good, but still not amazing. Again, you would have to change the interior.

I am thinking this is for me - the metallic grey colour. If anyone knows what the colour is, it would be much appreciated. I think it is from around '84-'90 or something like that. Panels have to be very good though.

And another metallic red, though not on a coupe. I think the metallic red is really nice.

palladium silver. It was i painted my finny. Newer Mercedes colour. Looks so rich!! The old mercedes colours to me look dull. The new CLS CLK.... colours are eye popping beautiful. Lots of pearl! Sparkle!

Color

I love blue metallic colors but with black interior the red metalic will be fine. But the grey-metalics are very nice like middle grey, sand-grey and dark-grey metalic with black and color-windows would be fine. More picks, more picks...

Thanks pagodino
