I just checked the latest USA brochure and it's the same - "color" keyed door mirrors for all but the SLC43 AMG which gets the black.
Notwithstanding this, I stand my ground and want the "downgraded" body coloured mirrors. If my dealer says this can't be done, I will push hard and send them to find out properly but at the end, I guess I can live with black ones and get my smiles from the driving
There are loads of unpublicised options available like the ability to delete the bright red seatbelts and have standard black belts if you keep the standard interior. Depending on car colour I would probably go with something like this too if I were not opting for Nappa leather
I guess they don't want every car on the production line being TOO bespoke because it complicates things and makes keeping stock of items like the red and black seat belts more difficult to predict and control stock levels.
