The Aston Martin does sound amazing, but I agree that its not the kind of car that you can drive around in everyday. Beautiful car though.

This was the rather comical reply from the dealership to my question about tracking the build progress:

----------------------------------
*awkward silence*

Yes! We do have a system - complete with full user interaction with the retailer!

But in all seriousness - MB's system are dreadfully old and in fact can only be accessed while on site at the dealership.

That being said, I'm happy to update long the way - current production date is set for ​9/20 and delivery on about 11/4.

Don't let the car fool you...

At least you have some dates keep chasing them these dates tend to change. A mate of mine has bought a GLE amg and as it comes from the US he has 5w delivery. You seem to be having this in reverse.

I agree the AM sounds the business. But the GT's is not shabby either.

Was that Langley MB? Was the vehicle in the showroom a Silver GTS with red/black interior?

Hi Gang!

So, my order has slipped to the end of November. Grrr.

My question is, does it make sense to still get it or just hold off for the 2017 model? Any idea when they would be available?

I'm dealing with same dealer and my GTS is being built in October for December delivery! I have the Silver GTS you saw in the showroom now and will return it when new one arrives. My new car is Matt Grey and loaded. Who are you dealing with there? Dean (general manager) is great guy to deal with if you have questions. Don't drop your November build no matter what... The same dealer has 3 used ones at a $20,000 premium so there's a lot of people waiting on one at MSRP. What colour is yours? Frankly, I know about 4 guys in B.C. who would take your build spot. I've had every Ferrari, Lamborghini, Porsche, Mercedes you can name and the GTS is the best of the best. I live in Vernon so I own the road there but I go to Vancouver every few weeks and it's a hit there too! Too bad the snows coming here soon! Lucky you, drive all year. Take the November build and run

In an odd turn of events, that dealer got in a "used" Red GTS. They are giving me a pretty good deal on it and still taking back my SL550 for full credit.
It is missing a couple of options I was looking for, but has the Burmeister (sp?) stereo in it, so the options balance out pretty well.
Plus, it is several thousand cheaper.

Plus, I get it today!

(Yes, dealing with Dean. He has been excellent.)
