Got a call from my dealer this morning to let me know that my baby has arrived....

Problem? I can only take delivery of her on 1 Sep, boo-hoo! The wait is going to be torturous!

In the meantime, I am popping by to snap some shots, hopefully the sun shines today!!!! Will post the pics later on today on this thread.

:furious:

How is that? Company owned car with lease contract starting september 1st?
Or is it something else?
nope, it's a personal contract with a balloon payment after 4 yrs, called a PCP here in the UK.

i'm only getting it on 1 Sep as the plate registrations run from Sep to Feb and Mar to Aug. has a fundamental impact on re-sale value, so might as well wait until Sep. besides, i'm away on summer holiday for most of Aug so no real point in getting it now.....

OK, here is my baby, apologies that: the sun wasn't out, the car was wedged between 2 others and it had rain on, also that it was taken on a phone, the seats had plastic covers on blah blah blah. pls ignore rust on brake discs, i will sort that out in a 100-0mph stop test, hehehe!

when i collect her, i will use a digital slr for better resolution and quality. this month is going to be tough..... dammit!

i think i'm going to vinyl wrap that cross section on the roof that is white, with a black gloss wrap similar to the pano roof......

Hi vman, Are the rims painted silver, partially polished or is there any black in it ? I am hoping it is silver painted or polished. I would be in major distress if they painted any part black.

Those are the AMG black wheels due to the Night Package option, so yes they have painted black the side facing surfaces...

Very Nice indeed! Congrats!
I have mine for a few weeks now.
Mountain Grey 220 CDI AMG full option except the Command Online.
Runs fantastic,very happy!!
I had a question seeing your pics:
How come you have the white surroundings on the dashboard gauges??
I'm from Belgium and when I ordered it a few months ago,I didn't come across this feature? Looks really nice!Especially on the white one!

Well,that September will be there soon for you! :) But for me time can pass just slowly now with this excellent weather!

Greets!
