What is the difference between "tan" and "palomino"? I've seen a cream color, and a definate tan brown color, but people call them different things. Especially if they are not particularly into Mercedes.
My 89 420SEL has what some people call a "beige" or tan interior, but when checking with several suppliers, because I need to replace a worn driver's seat back (common) I received samples of "off-white' and light "redish-brown", but nothing that matched.
The real color is "creme" or what I really think of as "buttermilk", thats creme with a slight yellow tone.
But you are right, to many people, "tan" and "palomino" are the same color, but are not. I bought a "tan" leather seat back cover last year on eBay that "looked", in the picture, to be right, and was described as light "tan".
It was a new, never mounted, leather seat cover, but it was palomino, "redish brown". I traded it off later, locally, to another Mercedes owner for some front bumper chrome, so that both he and I ended up with what we needed.
