    Hello all, hope you can help.
    I've recently lost the jag & taken on my father in law's, low mileage Merc. A w210, 2000, e220cdi in brilliant silver (I believe). Unfortunately he's managed to put a few scrapes on the bumper trim panels, that need sorting asap (especially as he seems to have sprayed undercoat over them :crazy: - even more obvious!).
    Anyone have any idea of the official colour or know a match? Could save me loads of time & effort! :)
    Many thanks! :)

    Thanks Lynall
    Yeah I think that's the code for the paintwork. However the inserts on the bumpers look to be different? Any ideas?
    I think I need to spray them rather than a simple touch up, especially given the rather liberal application of primer he sprayed over the top. Grrrr!

    Im in the same position, the silver cars have a darker greyer coloured trim on the doors and bumpers.

    Quieter, smoother, more room, bags of power with better MPG
    Just need to get a few things sorting on it: ARB drop links and bushes, blow by on No.1 Injector, a couple of areas of rust and stone chips.
    got to get a towbar fitted,but can wait till next year as wont need to tow caravan till March earliest.

    All in all I absolutely love it, should have done it sooner :) how about you ?

    I miss the block heater and the heated windscreen, mpg 10% less but petrol 17% cheaper:).

    0-60 time now halved:bannana:

    Some ways i wish i had kept it but was fed up with the constant maintenance:rolleyes:

    But on the other hand it didnt rust away before your eyes like the mb:D

    My disco was averaging about 22-23mpg, but now I'm getting 38mpg whilst driving upto Sheffield for work, si very happy about that :bannana:

    know what you mean about the maintenance - mine would have an occasional starting issue - was an injector leaking - but not all the time :crazy:

    No such thing as rust on a Disco, until you look underneath :D

    My decision on a merc was based on the following factors:

    Had to have a towing capacity of at least 2000kg
    large boot space for dog and/or stuff when going away with the 'van
    good on fuel
    reliable, low maintenance.

    Didn't want another 4x4, so was down to a BMW 530d touring or a E320CDi Estate. The BMW just didn't seem to have any character and also needed to be a manual to get the mpg, but could fine a good one with leather as well.
