Hi everyone! I'm Ben and I'm 28 yrs old from Stourbridge! I ordered my new A180 sport last week, I have been eyeing up this forum since then and finally registered today. On overlooking of the forum I can see a lot of you recommend the night package, I have just added this to my order as I think it sets off the cirrus white.

My previous ride was a ford focus facelift sport so this is a big step up, I also ride/track motorbikes so I guess I'm going to wish I opted to a faster model. My car is due to be with me by the 11th July and in the mean time MB have given me an A class sport (branded) courtesy car till mine arrives! Can't wait!

Welcome Ben! You will learn great things on this forum! It also helps with the wait! The monochrome look is great.

Luckily I haven't had to wait as long as other people on this forum, and giving me a courtesy car of the same model was good of them! In a way I would have rather had a different model as a courtesy car as i want the first experience properly in my own car. But saying that I should be greatful that they are actually giving me a car!

There is a lot to be said for having the opportunity to practice with the car! At least you won't be nervous of the car when it arrives!

Welcome BenJaMeaner! You've got it made! I never had a test drive and had to wait 5 months before I took delivery
however, no matter how long you wait the end result always exceeds your expectations!

You'll soon get used to it, ha, ha! I feel as if I am 'showing off' sometimes! Especially when people are looking at you! No more jumping in the car without hair done and lipstick on!

Congratulations on the order, wow that is an awesome dealer. My dealer I can not complain about, he has just thrown me the keys and said take it. But letting you keep if for about a month that is absolutely unbelievable.

Enjoy. I'm still waiting on my Engineered by AMG A250 fully loaded. ETA at the moment is September 24, I ordered in March (although a couple of changes saw some long delays)

The dealer I have ordered from, most of them are arrogant [email protected] Some wouldn't even serve me because of how young I looked. Felt like I needed to pull my suit out the closet just to get service and for someone to take me seriously! Just because I had my superdry clobber on which I felt comfortable in. Complaining to the sales manager got me a 2% discount :) pays off apparently to voice your opinion! They were soon up my ass offering me cans of coke on hot days and hot drinks on cold days when I flashed a jiffy bad full of cash! All I wanted was the car, shame I couldn't buy it from McDonald's where service would most probably been better! Not to mention ice in my coke haha!
