Do they make a dark silver? Ive seen a warm looking silver (almost gold in the sun) but im looking more towards a dark ashy silver. Does this exist? Pictures would be helpful if you have them!
Thank you

Palladium Silver is a recent colour, it is a shade darker than Pewter. Pewter is a shade darker than Iridium Silver.

I have what MB in the US call Pewter or Cubanite Silber (color code 723), see pix below:





The colour is a tad lighter when there's more sunlight:

So cubanite silver= pewter?
Ive seen cubanite before, thats what i described as "almost gold in the sun", because its a slightly warmer colour. I like palladium but i wish it were just a touch lighter.

Hmm, I drove a Palladium Silver W204 while my SLK was in the shop last trip over, and it's actually pretty dark. I'd take a closer look, as I think it's the "darkest" outside the designo colors. Like all MB metallic paints, it has a pretty good "range" in different light conditions.

My mom fell in love with it, and whilst I don't care for silver cars as all, I though it was not to bad.
