Ordering and Lead times on GT s

Hi guys,

I went into my local Merc dealership (Mercedes of Leeds) last thursday (07.07.16) to order a GTs and left a deposit.

They told me that they have to request a build slot and one isn't garanteed?? Is this correct? I havent heard back from them yet and it is now Wednesday 13.07.16 and im starting to get frustrated.

Also, once accepted by Mercedes direct, has anyone picked one up during 2016 and what are the lead times like?

My spec if anyone is interested is:

GT-S
Magnetite Black (looks kind grey)
Forged black alloys
Dynamic plus package
High gloss carbon interior trim
Upgraded Burmester surround sound system
Driving assistance package
Black & White two tone exclusive nappa leather package
Night package
Premium package
AMG Aero kit (Fixed wing etc)
Opted for Stargard paint protection but not sure about it (400)

Cheers guys!

Haven't ordered one yet so I wasn't aware that custom ordered GT S wasn't guaranteed a build slot. Would be best if you keep asking your dealership but it may take some time. I've heard of people waiting around 8 weeks for confirmation.

Any idea what the Stargard paint protection is ? Sealant, PPF, or just a warranty type of thing on it ?

Stargard paint protection is a protective layer they put onto your car but it's not really cheap, best to try and negotiate that down if you can.

Ohh okay I just did some searching into it. Yea, I would try to negotiate it down or opt for a different sealant completely.
