    How long have people had to wait to get a build date for a C63? I ordered mine in early August and have not yet been given a date. Is this normal?

    You normally get an estimation date but can change anytime really

    Did you pay cash? Is the salesman on holiday in Barbados?

    Ordered a 507 edition saloon on the 10th August
    Estimated arrival was late September
    Had a confirmed build date of 2nd October so car should come in early November
    If it takes any longer the order will be canceled and I will wait for a new M3 saloon

    I ordered mine in June and still don't have a confirmed build date and any estimated dates I received changed at least 3 times so I think your pretty lucky there, as for cancelling and ordering an M3 won't that mean you waiting even longer?

    M3 is due in May.....so not so far away. I drove the new B3 Alpina Bi-turbo and thought it was great but needed a little more edge...the M3 should deliver this....that said I am keen to have the last naturally aspirated V8....

    I had the 335 remapped was impressive but I needed a change so decided the 507 would be that. I think your wait will be worth it and then if you still fancy an M3 wait for the facelift but as you say the last of the NA V8s is a positive

    My MB dealership gave me a 4/5 month lead time on the 507......luckily they had the car in stock (white with matt black rims) so I was able to pick it up in a week.

    Are you talking about build dates for ed. 507 or standard model? When I enquired for lead time on C63 coupe I heard 2-3 months and I read here that some people got their cars earlier than expected.

    I missed the boat with cheap deals so now I'm not in a hurry, don't want to order too early and get a new car before a new plate in March. Also hoping that maybe good deals will be back in next quarter.
