    Hi Guys

    My W126 (very early 1981 car) is silver. I am about to get some paintwork done and my Merc dealer tells me the paint code 795 is actually lugano grey which I find strange for a silver car. I would say my car is bright silver. Does anyone have any opinions/ideas?

    Cheers
    Sean

    If its any consolation to you my w124 is 702 smoke silver but looks more like gold metallic in most lights.

    The W125 , IIRC , was only available in unpainted silver metallic , after the German national white paint was scraped off to meet the 750 Kg weight restrictions .
