I got an email from my dealer (also in the LA area) saying that MB hasn't announced the Edition 1 CLA's and they are all still waiting at the port to be released. So yes, I think they are holding them, and I can't get an answer as to for how long. I caled MB customer service and a lady said early October. I called again and a different representative didn't know where she got that early October date from and had no info.

Someone in another thread said their dealer told him/her that they are waiting for a part to be installed in all the CLA Edition 1's.

I don't think anyone really knows what's going on.

Yes, that's what my dealer told me. They talked to VPC and got back with this answer. Also they promised that E1s will be out to carriers within 24-48 hours.
wonder what part it is and if something went wrong? Hopefully the 2 day window is real and they finally release them

just got an update from dealer saying they have to do some "basic mods" on the cars before they are released. I wonder if the is just on edition 1 models since local dealers are getting stock. Now he said end of Sept for my car ;-(

Well, end of sept is Monday at the latest , could be worse ... But I'm really interested go find out what kind of mods they're doing . And I think it's only the edition 1's , seems like all the other cars are bring sent to the dealerships daily . Maybe they're fixing modifying the gap :)

Hey, didn't wanna double post. But here's what I posted earlier in another thread:
Hey all. Wanted to give you guys an update.

Got a call back from Simon, he's one of the head honchos at Mercedes Corporate. He let me know that many of the Edition 1's were sent back to the manufacturer to make changes/adjustments to the vehicle. He did not mention to me what or why, but said that the Edition 1 I ordered with the "fixed" parts will arrive in port tomorrow and should be available as early as Saturday for purchase and pick up. He apparently pulled some strings to have my car rushed.

Most cars that were "arrived in port on September 4th" weren't actually there, he claims. Most of them were intercepted in transit over the ocean. He wouldn't tell me what was wrong with the cars either, but that "it was really important for us to make sure these cars are up to our standard, and not rushed for the sake of getting it into the customer's hands." I swear, the guy sounds like Jonny Ive.

I asked him if this was true for other people with Edition 1 orders, and he said that the cars are being tested and sent back over. That delays can run from two to three more weeks out but "They're doing everything they can to get the cars to customers."

That being said - he did mention that I would be the first person in the nation to actually have an Edition 1. We'll see if that holds true - and if it does I'll post pictures with my 5s first, and then with a DSLR so everyone can take a look.

Will keep everyone updated!
