I'm quite curious to know what exterior colour people have on their SLK, or on their yet to be built SLK!!! [:D]

I think Malibuite said in an earlier posting that iridum silver slk's were popping up everywhere, and I have to agree. I've seen 6 SLK's around where I live, of that 5 are iridum silver, and one was black!!! (And yup those 5 iridum silver's were all different cars!!!!! [;)])

I've used the UK & US colours - in the hopes of covering most people. And matched the same colours together - when they have different names in the UK & US!!!!

Though I have put Capri & Caspian Blue together, cause on the US website they look the same!!! [:I] No doubt ya'll be telling me how different they are!!!! [:p]

This poll won't work properly. You have, for example, mars red and fire opal as two colours. They are the same.

Ditto tanzanite / capri, and others.

I suggest you repost it with the same colours in one line.

cheers

Dammit [}:)] [:(!]

Why on earth can't the same colour name be used for the world, and not different names!!! [}:)]


OK, so does the following colour list – look better!!!!! [:D] (Before I go and post it again!!!)

Black
Mars Red/Fire Opal
Alabaster White
Obsidian Black metallic
Japer/Orion Blue metallic
Tansanite/Capri Blue metallic
Amber/Firemist Red metallic
Cubanite/Pewter Silver metallic
Tellur/Diamond Silver metallic
Andradite Green metallic
Benitoite/Caspian Blue metallic
Everest Green metallic
Designo – Mocha Black metallic
Designo – Graphite metallic
Designo – Chablis metallic
Other

Are Andradite Green and Everest Green the same?? Cause must admit on the websites, Andradite looks a heck of a lot darker than the Everest Green. [8)]

Thanks!!!! [8D]

Looks better, but I am pretty sure the two greens are the same too.

For what it is worth, it is tellurite silver, not just tellur.

Keen to see the results.

I'll put the two greens together and hope for the best!!!

And in the UK it is refered to as Tellur Silver: http://www2.mercedes-benz.co.uk/content/unitedkingdom/mpc/mpc_unitedkingdom_website/en/home_mpc/passenger_cars/home/products/new_cars/slk_class_roadster_facelift/models/exterior/paints.html

And I'm guessing in Auz, it's Tellurite Silver - they really need to make their mind up!!! [8D]
