    Champagne is much more a gold sort of colour. Its probably smoke silver as above.

    are you not able to use your chassis number to get the paint match, then you can be sure which colour it is.

    colour matches can be very difficult as i understand they are mixed with a base colour. Are you not able to contact mercedes with your chassis number to confirm exactly which colour it is? Also, not sure but i think paints may be a restricted item due to its toxicity/flammability levels, although i hope im wrong.

    Good luck with your search
