Anyone know why MB discontinues the TEALITE BLUE color in the E-class?
Does it get replaced by Granite Grey Metallic or Platinum Metallic?
What are the difference between all these 3 colors?
My 2004 E320 4Matic model has a tealite blue metallic exterior color with stone interior.
I am just wondering why?

I don't know why car companies do this. We also own an Acura MDX and I noticed that either 1 or 2 years following when I purchased our 2002 MDX (in December 2001), Acura discontinued the "Granite Green Metallic" paint color that we have. At first, you might think that they discontinue colors because they are proving unpopular with consumers. But in the case of my Acura, "Granite Green Metallic" was the single most popular color you could get. When I bought the car, it was practically impossible to find one of these available because this is what everybody wanted. Even still, they discontinued the color.

I think MB and Acura should let customers choose and charge extra for these custom colors.
I know MB has Designo package but not all colors are available.
