My first experience with the MB color chart is frustrating. <p>The C320 Sport only comes with charcoal interior. MB charges for metallic and the only non-metallic colors are black and white. I don't like the white. And while I wanted a black/grey car, a black/black one is a little to strong for my tastes.<p>Are you getting the maroon metallic, silver, or a $1000 or $1625 special order color?<p>Thanks,<p>David

I'm getting a Sport in silver

I am getting silver. I know there are plenty of them out there but you can't beat silver or white to maintain and I am sick of owning white. Also the blue glass on the Sport looks great with silver.: My first experience with the MB color chart is frustrating. <p>The C320 Sport only comes with charcoal interior.

The picture at Auto Bild is...

Ok from the front but not very flattering from the rear. I am not sure how it will look in person. Early reviews indicate that the car can be mistaken for an S-class if no other size reference is available. Generally red does not look good on large monochromatic vehicles. It looks great on small sports cars or cars that appear small.<p>A BMW 528 is an example of a car that appears visually smaller than it is and looks ok in red.<br>
