Had a phone call today from salesman at MB saying that my A45 will be delayed by six weeks from Sept1st to mid October if I still want the Pano roof as an extra.?? Has anybody else had this with their order.??

I have a Mercedes CLA on order and was also told the same thing. If I wanted the pano roof then I am looking at a late October delivery. Looks like a part shortage on the pano roof and also the 5 spoke night package alloys.

I received my order confirmation on the 26<SUP>th</SUP> June 2013, then I made some changes a week after that. I have received an excel sheet which shows the stats of my vehicle. I am also getting a pan roof and it states the following.<?: prefix = o ns = "urn:schemas-microsoft-com:eek:ffice:eek:ffice" />

- Panoramic sliding sunroom (showing available dek Oct)
- 18 inch AMG Multispoke design alloys (showing available dek 3<SUP>rd</SUP> Aug)

So these must be the items that they do not have in stock which may be causing the delays with some deliveries. My delivery date given is the 15<SUP>th</SUP> November but looking at this, should I not want the panoramic roof I could probably get it sooner. Not going to give in to that idea as the pano roof is a must.

Hi White Mercury, Sorry I meant the 18" AMG alloy wheels - 5 twin spoke design 225/40 tyre. They are offered with the night package.

I've been badgering my local dealer for a delivery date on my A45 order and keeps making excuses for not confirming. Looks like it's a problem with the panoramic roof then as ordered this as an option.

Those are crazy delays. I don't believe we are experiencing those in Europe.
Sorry mate. Delays are global not just for South Africa. Intact on A45s may be worse for europe cos South Africa is a bigger buyer of AMG models than most European countries. We only behind china and UAE so you can imagine who Daimler are going to give priority to on AMG models......

that would be a massive step down , rather get a M135i IMO , not a golf

This is what I got from my dealer yesterday when I raised concern about delivery delay.

I am being told that November is realistic, but we will know more when your vehicle physically goes into build. <?: prefix = u5 /><u5:p></u5:p>
<u5:p></u5:p>
The last couple of A Class that we've ordered have actually come forward slightly, so fingers crossed!<u5:p></u5:p>
