Spotted Grandma

In her SLK 250 Mars Red. Non sport package as I was sitting outside Starbucks. It was gorgeous. Now I want a red SLK

Firstly, I don't have any card. Secondly, what if she or anyone I card says 'no thanks, I gotta run'?. I'd feel so rejected and cry.

Firstly, why don't you have any cards? They are free...just ask.

Secondly, you don't sound like you would care about rejection.

That's the red I was hankering for when I started looking for an SLK until I came across all the horror stories about issues some were having

What makes you think so? I don't like to hear NO.

It was the horror stories regarding the paint, not the car. It seemed to be related to model years around 2011 - 2014 though I stand to be corrected.
Mine is 'Designo Hyacinth Red'. It's a metallic paint that varies between the subdued, almost plum colour as in my avatar, to a kind of fiery candy apple depending on the light level/sunshine. Not a common colour, I suspect because of the cost premium - and no, I didn't stump up for it originally as I bought the car used at 5850 miles. I didn't want black, white silver or grey though the deep blue metallic with the same Sahara beige seats would have been an acceptable second choice.

Yes. I believe paint code 590 is Fire Opal red in Europe and Mars red in the States.
