Would be interesting to hear projected build and delivery dates. I have December 10 build date for an A250 Amg Engineered and am told a pre Christmas delivery is possible. Anyone have confirmed delivery dates yet ?

On the bright side at least you (and other Jan delivery recipients) will get a '13 registration.

That's the car registration plates you mean. The registration of the car itself will be 2013 'on the books'

Ah yes see what you mean - so when the time comes to sell (seems a bit strange when no one has one yet!) you could sell as a 2013 MY?

I believe so. It should also give you a stronger residual if you bought on PCP Agility deall

There's a delay with my A250 apparently. My dealer tells me mine was built on the 13th but it has sat there for a week awaiting 'inspection and final fit'. they can't event tell me a delivery date yet but I'm guessing it will be January now :-(

I work for a car manufacturer and I can tell you they do not like having cars waiting around once they have been built. What is likely is that something has gone wrong in the build and they're having to rework it. They will do a diagnostic check at the end of the line, this has probably shown something wrong.

I've just been told mine has arrived today, so will be delivered on the 3rd Jan

..and the wait continues for my A250 AMG Engineered ! Was built on December 13th and sat on the inspection line for a week until the day before the factory closed down for two weeks. Very frustrating. I'm told it arrives at the MB dealer tomorrow for a Thursday pickup. Will post the pics at the end of the week. In the meantime they've lent me an A200 CDI Sport - which is rather nice as a stop-gap solution.

I've been told mine should arrive between the 7th and 27th of Feb, so not too much longer to wait.

I'd double check that - that's a long gap between build and delivery

yeah I know I said to my local dealer I want my car can come out on March 1st so he gave me a rough estimate of the earliest date I can have my car built.. The Jan 25th doesn't mean it is on that day it could be later if that make sense?

Hi,
I ordered a A180 AMG sport for my wife on the 21st October 2012, was told early feb delivery, now being told it will not arrive at dealer until 15th March due to production delays and this is still only an estimate.

Anyone shed any light on these alledgedproduction delays?

I've been told that my A250 will now be built on the 8th so it looks like delivery will be the end of the month
