Anybody know of a source for a paint to match the silver on the ashtray and cup holder? I could use plastic model paint, but if the real deal is available...

Brilliant! Is there a question that can't be answered on SLKWorld? 💓

Not sure if this is a good answer...

I am restoring an abused 2008 SLK 350. The center console was NASTY!! Most of the coating on the plastic was gone, cooked off by Florida sun! I disassembled the entire panel and took those components apart... and I do mean APART. I cleaned everything with hot soapy water. After drying I taped off the buttons and soda blasted the p[plastic. I epoxy primed the plastic and painted with a flat black. For the silver on the cup holder and the ash tray I taped it off and mixed up a little silver body paint.. followed with the clear coat. Came out nice!

A lot of work... but, very nice results.
