Who believes this story? I ordered a new Merc S Class early last October 2012 from my local dealer. I wanted quite a lot of factory fit extras on it, especially for the diesel model. Because of this, one had to be ordered from Germany. Now, I was told when I ordered it I would get it by Christmas. Mid December came and I get a phone call from the dealer saying that I would not get the car by Christmas but would get it early in January 2013. Today, 7 Jan, I get another call saying that I should get it by the end of Jan and the reason given was that, in the salesmans words, the factory is shut until the 14 Jan so it cannot be got out until after then. Now I know the factory only shut for a week over the Christmas period and I find it hard to belive the salesman, so I ended up saying that if the car is not on my drive on the 1 February, I will cancel the order. What do other members think of the salesman tale?
