Colors are a personal preference, but the metallic red paint and the dark red interior are not outrageous or far out. I would buy a car this color if the condition and price were right. If you are serious about this car, it would be good to have it inspected by an independent Mercedes service/repair shop. If it checks out and the price is right, go for it. Make sure the top works and there are no leaks from the hydraulic system.

Terrible, Most would agree, but likely many would not want to hurt your feelings here. Okay color combination for an american car I guess.

Yeah, if you are asking for opinions on the color... it reminds me of a mercury Topaz (not good IMO). :eek:

Max, if you want my honest opinion, the exterior color is great. However I am not to fond of the interior color scheme.
Also, keep in mind 1994 was one of the production years when these cars had disintegrating engine wiring harness issues.

Happy Hunting! :)

Smart move MaxR129: that color combo was a huge kick in the stomach. And with army boots.
More, as already stated, years between 1993 and 1995 have the biodegradable wiring harness that sooner or later (more likely sooner) will need to be replaced and that's big bucks.
I'm not sure about the white on black interior because I've not seen one yet but in my mind the image doesn't look that bad.

If you can post a link of pics taken by you please feel free.

Happy hunting.

Cheers.

I would have to agree with NEOKEN on this one!!!! IMHO the ONLY time a Red interior is OK is with a White Car!!!! The thing is, You asked, we're just telling you what we think!!!!

Hello!!!

I tested the car, its great to drive but it has some minor details to it. The centre console located between the seats has the button missing. Also the left hand speaker has the fabric loosen up. Can the fabric be changed easily?? Where can I buy the missing button???

In that car, which looks to be a pre-1995, the speaker grille is actually a plastic mesh, and it's easy to replace. The center console buttons are also easy to change, though it requires removing the console.
