I will picking up my new E-Class (currently on the boat across the north sea as we speak) next week all being well.
Now whilst the showrooms and dealers always do a reasonable job in preparing the car for customer handover, I'm considering getting it to a detailer within the first few days...
Well after 3.5 months of waiting, since my order for a new E-Class, I've been told today that it's finally been conceived this morning and has started it's factory run. I have no idea how long it takes before my new girl will pop out the womb :D
Target delivery date at dealer is...
I'm not currently in my local area, so currently waiting for Mercedes to recover the car and bring my baby home. I called the police so I could get a crime number for insurance (if needed), they think it's random as no other reports.
I've checked the paintwork and thankfully no damage...
My W213 (to replace my W212) arrives in about 4-5 weeks time. Similar to Swd80, I used carwow and got 15.9% discount off the list prices.
I've heard that the Premium Plus is currently on Stop Sale (I presume demand is outstripping supply).

I think i'm going to have to get ****ty today.
Mercedes have come back to me and said it's available, but I need to make sure the car is built with parts

Also for now, i'm told it's iPhone only, with Android coming by Q3 this year.
Just need to find out what these are now.
I think I need to clarify the exact wording with everyone and Mercedes, as it appears their various naming conventions of "pilots" is confusing, well for me anyway.
- Parking Pilot claims to be included with the car, as standard (part of Parktronic)
- Remote Parking Pilot, where using a mobile...
So when in dealership today ordering my new e-class, I added the 360 degree camera, generally as I want the Parking Pilot feature. However, I was told that Parking Pilot is not available at launch (even though Parking Pilot is listed on the MBUK configurator as coming with the camera).
Well just got back from my local Mercedes dealership, where I now have on order:
E-Class E220d AMG Premium Plus
Nappa Leather Saddle Brown
Black Ash Wood
12.3" Cockpit Display
Comand Online System
20" AMG Multi Spoke Wheels
360 Degree Camera
However, I can't decide between...
