Best Color

I have a 85 sec euro and I have just found a complete real AMG body kit (SOOO LUCKY!!!) On top of that I found a complete set of chrome 3pcs. staggered O.Z. racing AMG wheels and tires on Atlanta Craigslist. The car is originally 929 Mercedes blue but I am really debating on the AMG white that is so common on AMG 126 cars. Would I take the value of the car away by changing the color. Thanks!!

Welcome to the forum! Fill out your profile before you get attacked by the mods. I'd keep the original blue color - very expensive to change color and do it correctly - plus 929 is not a common color, it makes your car that much more unique. Are you in the ATL area?

I like 929 personally. If I remember correctly, it is nautical blue (right???). I would keep it. Remember changing the color involves painting door jams, the underside of the hood, the engine compartment etc. It is going to cost more.

This then begs the question of which colour is the most common, and which colours are more "rare", relatively speaking.
Well, here is a rare color for the W126. I believe it is China Blue. ;)

Looks like something the Chinese version of a Mary Kay rep would drive.

I like this one.
932 Lapis Blue, This one is a bit lighter than brand new 932 Lapis Blue Paint though. 25 years old(18 when repainted), so I'm sure the original paint had faded to this match.

My w126 is in dark blue right now (don't know the code for it), but it needs a paint job soon and I'm going for Pearl Gray Metallic (DB122).

I have seen a doody green (brown,rust,green color combined) advertised in Miami...it had somthing like 56K on it and driven only 2 months a year since it was a vacation home. Man it looked excellent but that color...not for me. It was original.
