    We are getting a few cars in this white now. Its not an arctic white(like the vans) its more like an off-white sort of got a cream tint in it.
    SLK comes in this colour too

    Nice to see your Salesman is keeping up. The Police are now using Silver...

    White is now back in vogue, but I'm not sure I'd have a Merc in it.
    I've had two white cars and liked them, but will stick to metallics for now.

    IMO it looks awful.

    It would probably look better in artic white like the Sprinters!

    I like it. Get stocked up on car cleaning gear though. Most cars in most colours look great in a showroom, sparkly lit environment (car shows a good example). Seeing them out on the road is entirely different.

    What does that car look like after a 100 mile wet motorway trip?

    I normally don't like white ........but I saw this particular white "in the flesh" recently and was surprised that I liked it.

    I'm suprised the wheels aren't in white as well to complete the 80's look:devil:
    I understand that white is back in fashion and hence most of the press cars of recently released models are (lemming like) in that (non) colour:crazy:
    I can't says I'm a fan and it always reminds me of mass produced Japanese cars of the 80's.
    Style I like, but I've never been accused of being fashionable!:(

    I find that white vehicles look great when they're new and in vogue but they generally date really quickly much like most flat colours - with maybe the exception of black. It's like all things fashionable - just look at old photo's of yourself for proof ;) :D

    So the ML for now looks great. Will it still look great in a few years time? Dunno - not so sure.
