Exterior colours
Many W124 paint colours were used on other models for years. Post-facelift a few new colours were introduced, like Azurite Blue, and older shaades, like Nautic Blue, were dropped. This may have been a choice for the UK market only. Certainly the UK usually got a subset of the German colours - we tended not to specify any of the five different shades of beige available in Germany

Certain solid (non-metallic) colours have no lacquer coat and may look hazy until repolished. All metallic colours have a lacquer coat
