somewhere I heard the retail value is higher on black and silver mercedes because those are the most popular colors, they are also the hardest colors to get, espeically on cars with high demand like an SLK55

black with limited chrome is the way to go! [:)]

Actually, I found something a bit different. When I was researching on the net b4 I traded my black 320, it turned out that black took away points from me. Silver and white actually came in better than black. My guess is the difficulty required to maintain the darker colors - this is even more so for higher end vehicles.

I had a black 00 430 that I traded in on my black 05 500SE. I always keep any black vehicle I own looking like new, and enjoy doing so. There is nothing that looks better under the lights at night than a clean black vehicle. Living in Central Cal. makes it easier to keep clean, but I'm retired and have the time to do it right. When I graduated from high school in 1957 I had a black 49 Olds Rocket 88, and that was the start of a long line of black vehicles, including my current GMC pick-up! [8D]

Very true.....Recently, when l purchased the 02 ML 55, in the Bordeaux color, it had 66,000 km's, and it went for $48,000, he had a 02 Silver ML 55 right beside it, with 77,000 km's, and he was asking 57,500, go figure....that's why l bought the Bordeaux...
