Need help figuring out what color interior paint to buy

I want to repaint some plastic parts on the interior, but I’m not sure what color paint to look for. It seems to be lighter than anthracite grey. Maybe it’s just faded so much that it looks different. I took photos of the parts that need to be repainted and one other plastic component to show what it should look like

Thanks! Now I just gotta find a decent paint source. My grandpa recommended I go to a cobbler and have them match the leather dye... I think there are easier options .

Well I resolved the paint question in a different way. I removed the glove box lid and took that assembly to my local Home Depot or any other home paint store. They put the lid in their color matching machine and it came up with a paint code. I got a half a pint of 99.8% perfect color match of a water based latex that paints on easily with a brush and you can not tell the difference. The interior was beat up kind of bad by the previous owner in the center console area and around the seat belt latches. 20 minutes inside the car just touching it up and the interior looks like new. I defy anyone to find where I've been with the brush as the match is perfect. Matching the color this way also takes into consideration any fading of the paint over the years too. Also that little half pint of paint only cost $3.80. Deal of the century if you ask me and what a difference it makes in the appearance of the car plus now I have the formula code and with that they can mix more of the same if I need it.

Hope this helps.

Lisa

Another good paint source is Viponds "TautFlex" which is specially formulated to match the SLK interior colors. I always took care of my interior with protectant since brand new. If there were small nicks or scratches in the vinyl parts, I would just touch them up with a fine artist's brush. My interior has survived all of these years without a whole repaint. You can check www.viponds.com.au.
