I'm in San Diego, ordering from Laguna. Just got this message from my dealer:

"WOW!! YOUR CAR WAS BUILT ON 7/29/2013 !!....It is on a rail headed to the
port ! I will keep you posted when the ship leaves port!!"

This is actually ahead of schedule. It was supposed to start building in the 1st decade of August. Does anyone know what the average time is for shipping overseas and cross country? Getting excited!!! Woo!

My CLA was originally scheduled to be built on August 5, but my dealer called to tell me it was done earlier on August 1. Apparently, the Mercedes factory is running a little bit ahead of schedule. He said to allow 4 to 6 weeks for it to arrive in New Hampshire.

Word on the street is that the Pano Roof and Night Packages are delaying deliveries in the US until Jan 2014.
I'd love to see validation on that from a dealer -- but they may not be able to disclose this information even if it is true.
I don't recall reading anything about the Sports Package delaying orders though.
Yikes, I have to imagine that would impact a fairly broad cross section of buyers.

wow that is a bit of a worry. I am buying from Sydney Australia. A CLA45. Ours comes stock with night package and pano roof
My build date is estimated 11/9 with delivery 11/11. Fingers crossed it arrives earlier. The dealer is confident with late OCT.

Great to see some people getting them early.

Anyone excited to test drive A45 on 1SEP?

...............and of course the first load is going to California.

Someone asked how long for there car to travel cross country once it arrives. Generally it will not travel cross country. MB uses several ports in the US and LA is the big one for the west coast.

They will sit until the official release date, that is when they will leave on trucks to the dealers.
