Mrs. MTI posed a question as a sliver CLK55 passed us on the highway . . . how many AMG buyers order anything but silver or black? I seem to recall seeing an E55 in white, but that could just be my imagination.

Any members with an AMG that isn't silber or schwartz?

Re: AMG Color Choices

Mercedes AMG offers a variety of exterior colors. For example, Mercedes-Benz offers 14 exterior colors and 7 interiors for the 2009 Mercedes-Benz SL-Class SL63 AMG Roadster. More info for Mercedes AMG color choices here.

Re: AMG Color Choices

I'd like to see some stats on how many of each are sold... I'll bet black and silver are 90% of total.

Re: AMG Color Choices

Probably a very limited number in your area, since you're on an island. :)

Black or Silver are the most common choices, by far. The color palatte on the W208s where actually fairly varied.

True about the limited sampling in my zip code, but I have noticed the same phenomenon in Newport Beach, CA; Seattle, WA; Phoenix, AZ; NYC, NY, so it seems that AMG buyers (almost exclusively male) are mostly traditionalist. ;)

Lawrence, KS has been called a lot of things, but never before has anyone referred to it as "an island." You may need a new map, or a geography lesson...

Re: AMG Color Choices

Gene,

This thread was begun by MTI, who happens to live on the island of Oahu in the state of Hawaii.

Maybe Lawrence could be identified by being located in an island of "wheat". Worked the wheat harvest from Beloit in the summer of '52 and it certainly is surrounded by wheat.

Take care - {:>)

Chuck

Thanks Chuck! I am aware that MTI is in Hawaii, but was just responding to Chappy who posted right behind me. We should probably request that posters click on "QUOTE" when replying to one our esteemed members...? ;)

Re: AMG Color Choices

Pewter -- didn't pick it out of the book; came on the car I bought for other reasons, but still a very nice shade of gray/silver. And everyone knows that M-B offers more shades of silver and gray than any other manufacturer.
But I do like the dark blue AMGs I've driven.
Cheers
Gary
