This is my 92 500E. I purchased this car for peanuts a little over a year ago and it needed a little work to be roadworthy. I spent the last year going over the while car with a fine tooth comb and I'm finally happy with it. Everything works, it drives amazing and it's turning out to be a pretty nice daily driver. Here's a quick pic. From my understanding this is somewhat of a rarity to have the lower cladding the same colour as the body.

Congrats and thanks for posting the "owner" thread. Looking forward to many more photos of your beautiful car. That's my all-time favorite E500E color !!

Same color as my '94. Looks sharp! :deniro:

FYI, the "matching color" bumpers & lower moulding/cladding was not a factory option (except on Limiteds, where it was standard, IIRC). It's a common modification, a previous owner of my car had the lowers painted body color when the whole car was re-sprayed after an accident in the late 90's.

Interesting. I had thought this car came painted like this from the factory I guess you learn something new everyday.
I have no history on this car as it was purchased from a tow yard that had recovered it and the owner never retrieved it.

thumbs up and welcome! Love the color. My wheels are slightly different (AMGs, too) and bumpers body color.

On some colors, matching lower cladding was factory. Signal Red being one of them.

Correct. I should have clarified that. Brilliant Silver (744) did not have matching lowers (with a possible exception on Limiteds).
