    Thought I'd start a thread on my new car as, although it's been hinted at in a couple of other ones, I now feel that it can justify it's own place with hopefully no distractions, as it's due for delivery in a few days (Monday 30th September)

    It's a C217 AMG S63, also know as an S63 Coupe. Finished in Anthracite Blue with a designo saddle brown interior, it will be the first brand new car I've ever owned, and probably the last as I'm planning to retire soon so I'll be penny pinching then.

    A few extras have been specified including, though not necessarily limited to; 20" Cross Spoke Wheels in silver (Last two cars have had black, I needed a change), AMG Night Package, Head Up Display, Dinamica steering wheel with Warmth Comfort Pack (basically heated wheel and armrests), Grey Ash Wood trim and a few other bits. Some other bits were requested but were not available on current 2020 builds...

    I had an option of picking it up from Norwich on Friday the 27th though declined this as it's a long way for me nowadays. This has turned out to be a good thing as it's turned out that I've got to go to France next week for a funeral, so won't be back in Manchester till Friday or Saturday morning (dates not confirmed yet as the French are being awkward, "quelle surprise"). The car will be coming up on a trailer so at least it won't get any miles on it and hopefully it will avoid any bad weather.

    It's booked in to be fully detailed as soon as it arrives here, so I'll have to wait another couple of days before I get to drive it but after speaking with several people it'll hopefully be worth it. It will be having a light machine polish and a ceramic coating to protect it, along with a few other things yet to be confirmed, wheels interior etc. but no prep at all by the dealer.

    I'll try to update this thread as things pan out but it may not be often as I have a few other things pressing at the moment

    Not for the UK/RHD market. Not a big loss as I've only just got rid of one of those with the E Class so at least I won't have the clunky steering in Winter any more. :D

    Thanks guys, your comments appreciated. :)

    Just been informed that the car left the factory around 4:30 this afternoon on it's way to the port. Unfortunately this was a day later than it should have been but my sales person said not to worry as he should be able to make that back with the transport side of things, so the delivery to me should hopefully still be the same, or one day later at the most.

    The bad news is that the funeral I was supposed to be attending has been postponed even further due to the French obsession with paperwork and administration. This means that it will possibly be the week the car is due to be delivered so I'll probably end up not bothering to go over which is frustrating. If it's on Saturday the 28th I'll make it, other than that I'll have to give it a miss as I have too much on here in the UK.
