color code

Wow, 1984Babybenz, that's a complete listing if I ever saw one. Question: exterior color of the car is 199, but which number on the faceplate indicates the interior color?

201 - type
028 - modification (0 - gasoline, 28 - engine M102.985 [displ. 2.3])
1 - LHD
2 - automatic

178 - trim code

7 - pattern
8 - color (gray)

124986 - engine variant number (code for variant of a certain engine model)

interior 633?

Thank you! Great info. But my 1982 model W123 seems to have interior code 633, unless the system was changed? The car has MB-Tex and I think the color may be called Palomino but I'm not sure. Did the system change, is this a mystery color, or am I too sleepy to think straight?

My car with codesign

is the car 256 crystal green and the lower panels perhaps 825 deep green (tiefgrün) ?
Hej!

Yes, the body color is 256, crystal green metallic. But there is not cladding color code on the service plate.
Panels color code is 6856, tropengrün.
