    EPC shows it to be 935U - Quartz Blue, special paint

    Who mixed the paint for you?

    I just went to halfords.. they never had 935u as an option. The guy from mercedes i phoned said there was no other option but 935 ? Excuse my ignorance what is the EPC ? and where can i get it :)

    Ask your Merc parts department for A 000 986 3050 5935 that should help them to identify 935U

    My data card says Blue Quartz is 347U. I've just had some made up and it's a perfect match.......347U is Blue Quartz.

    So is Quartz Blue different to Blue Quartz?

    Yes, EPC confirms what you have found, 347U is Blue Quartz

    Post #4 would support they are different. Perhaps the , "special paint" addition in the description has a significance?

    Just been looking at epc and all the codes end in a U so i dont think it means much. There is only one version of 935 for my colour as the mercedes guy told me on phone. The place i got it mixed before must of mixed it wrong as their 935 looked like navy blue not the violet type shade my car is.

    Of course it means something! It means it's a paint code and not a "Test Vehicle" or a "Taxi emergency warning system"

    Mercedes indicates the touch up spray paint for 347U as "Chalcedony Blue" ( 347U CHALCEDONBLAU METALLICLACK )

    My dealership parts department have just told me that Chalcedony Blue and Blue Quartz are the same. He told me that in early 'S' class cars the colour name Chalcedony Blue was used but now 347U is usually called Blue Quartz.

    Go figure!

    Quartz Blue metallic clearcoat 935 was quite a common colour for the CLK model around that time. It is that voilet colour you described. Type in QUARTZ BLUE MERCEDES into any search engine and you will be rewarded with lots of pictures. Mercedes quartz blue - Trovit Cars

    935 was the colour. Problem now... the bumper strips are a different/darker colour to the 935 body .. how do you find what colour the bumper rumble strips are ??

    Thanks.

    Yeh it is a bit. I got the epc and the paint bit is a bit mad when your not used to it. I had figured out i thought it was the 224 one so thanks for confirming it. Cheers.
