    Hi
    New to the forum so a bit of background.. I ordered a C63s back in early September and was told to expect delivery around mid December, got a phone call yesterday to say that the factory are having major issues with AMG cars and my car will now be delivered around mid March , I can’t find anything about delays on the internet so I was wondering if anyone else has had there delivery date pushed back by 3 months
    Thanks in advance

    Hi Philly, welcome to the forum. That's a bit of a blow when the excitement levels were so high. Hope you hang in there, there is still an enormous reward there waiting when you finally sit behind the wheel. :)

    My W213 was delayed from March until July, I think they underestimate the demand at times

    Thanks for the replies blobcat and ajd, it is a blow , but one good thing is that it will come on the new plate so not all bad , but will be mighty ****ed off if it’s delayed any longer

    The delay also means you get to explore your new toy in Spring & Summer. No bad thing.

    Perhaps the delay is due to Mercedes having difficulty in meeting the latest EU Emissions targets ?
    (as are some other manufacturers)

    Sterling will be worthless (hope the OP fixed the price) :rolleyes:, interest rates will rocket, house prices will crash, unemployment will escalate (unless you are a fruit picker from outside the EU)... :p:p

    Whoops, sorry didn't realise this wasn't the politics thread :D:D

    The OP will enjoy the car once it arrives.

    Thats the downside of the must have it now society we have created, theres no comprehension of reality and that life doesn't run to a Gantt chart :D:D

    That's a wee bit more of a ****** cheek than they have any right to take. We'll delay your order and charge you more- but don't worry, we'll accept the increase... that sort of carefree customer handling really grips my sh1t.
