I very much agree with Tolak. Chicky, (assuming I may be so personal as to call you that again
) if you are interested in custom paint, use the web to get yourself in a range, then you really, really, really MUST do physical and in-person inspections of what is possible. Don't waste your time or money with deciding on a color based on only what our PC monitor, Mac, iPhone, iPad, or android device is showing you. What is possible is not the same on the screen you are reading this or as it will be to your eyes in person. Possibilities are endless for those that are willing to explore their options in person. Be sure to look at the finish in different kinds of light, direct, shade, and what's in between. You own a luxury vehicle you seem passionate about, so do this right. My new Diamond White Metallic for example, looks completely different in the shade than it does in the direct sunlight -- almost as if it were two different colors. I would have never known that from my hours or days looking at web images, vs finally tracking one down in person and seeing it both ways thanks to my sales person moving cars around on the lot, when I asked if he could do that for me. Yes, I am into detail. It's the way I am.
...for those of us like myself that are buying a brand new SLK from the factory (mine should enter the Panama Canal on Sunday -- not that I'm keeping close track on the ship or am overly anxious to take delivery at last), we buyers of new vehicles have a limited number of options, perhaps more if we're willing to wait even longer and pay the sometimes exorbitant amounts for designo, or even more for a true one-off that MBZ will do opposed to some other mfgrs if you can come up with the cash. You, on the other hand are in a different position. If I were you, I'd first decide on what mods --if any-- you want to make to your ride, like body kits, THEN think about color and explore color options on the web and from forums and contributors like us, THEN you really must hit some real car shows or even some of the big auctions where you can see the possibilities in person before making a final selection. Words and a computer monitor cannot completely describe what you would see in person or your vision of what you desire. What you are considering taking on should be done with THOUGHT and PASSION, not just allowing your desire to take priority. That perhaps subtle thing will make the world of difference to you in the end. While you are contemplating your decision, playing around with us and our written words, along with your Google searches -- my suggestion is you should research some local shows or perhaps auctions you can attend and make a vacation of them, so you get some real in-person up-and-personal explorations of your options. If you don't do that, you'll miss one of the few opportunities most of us could ever have in our lifetimes.
Good luck. It's really exciting what you are considering. I'm feeling like "Father Bert" here, so I should sign off for now ...just stay balanced so you get exactly what you want and can afford -- AFTER you have explored the possibilities. Don't jump into something before you're ready. Good luck, and I look forward to your continued updates on what transpires.
