Hi There, I read an article about a pink Mercedes car hire in Sydney and it turns out the to be a W116. The paint doesn't extend to the hub caps or the the roof for some reason but it does look pretty good. heres the link. https://www.thatpinkmerc.com/

Should I book that paint job for my Albert now or …
BTW while most people give their car a feminine name, I have called mine Albert! Is that weird?

Not at all.  Some cars have a feminine aura about them, and some don't.  Can you imagine naming something like a 6.9 or a 300sel 6.3 a feminine name?  It would be like finding out that Rambo's name in real life is Janice or Sally.  (obviously, no offense intended towards those names or women in general).

Hamidagha,
all is fine and consistent if you name the large garage for your worshipped car 'Royal Albert Hall'. No pun intended :-)
