ML350 arrived early with lighting package

I just got back from the dealer today and my ML350 Blutec arrived earlier than expected and is ready to go with Lighting package.. I will be picking it up on Friday. My Original order was placed back in November, but I was told back then that the lighting package wouldn’t be available until mid to late March.

Diamond White, Anthracite Trim, Premium Package, Sport Package, Driving Assistance Package, Lighting Package.

Has anyone else been informed about their ML arriving early with Lighting Package... Not sure if living in Canada helped speed things up in this regard...

Think it's a Canada thing. All that have posted so far live there. Hopefully that means the US stuff is not far behind....

Had you been givin a build date? Was your ML delivered before they told you it was going to be built? If that's true then that would be good news!

EDIT: Oh.. and post pictures! Night shots with the headlights on!!

I loved the running boards too. Looks good even with the AMG kit. BTW, this is the mileage 18km on my ML at the time of delivery.

Congrat's to both of you. I still have two months yet, with a build date of the first of April.

Albertho, is yours Flat black or Obsidian?

Obsidian black and we have heavy rainfalls couple days ago in Vancouver but the car still looks great. Don't know is because of brand new car's paint or Obsidian black.

Looks good. I don't know why MBZ made this their first car with amber optics? No other MBZ has yellow light apart from the amber side marker. So now there are 2 amber things in the headlights!

The new SLK was the first with the amber torch.

Get used to it...

My build date was Feb 7 so it was a quick turnaround time for sure... I can't believe they are charging $890 for the diamond white in Canada now, this won't effect me however.

Wow... that is a quick turn around! My build is the March 11th.. hopefully I'll have it 3 or 4 weeks later.

They are also charging $250 for the Ash wood now.

Check out MBUSA's pricing for Diamond White.

Open pore wood was always extra charge for Canada. Money well spent!

Just ask your salesman to notify you once he/she has a build date show up in their system.

Negative... it was a $0 option when I put my order through in October. They have just added that $250 charge within the last few weeks. But I agree... it could be a $500 option and I'd still take it.

My build date was Jan 31 and it was supposed to be here for March 12th according to the dealer.
Last week I got an email saying I could pick up the truck on Saturday! Had to do some mad scrambling at the bank to transfer some funds around to get the draft made up on 2 day notice. Kind of sucked having to rush with the funds and insurance, etc but I was pumped that the truck was here so who cares!

So I picked it up last Saturday with the lighting package and everything as it was supposed to be. Lights are awesome, the amber is growing on me.

Looks great and congrats! Wondering why you didn't get the 20" AMG rims that came on mine? Thought all Canadian models were supposed to be getting them. Those rims look like the ones I had on my 2008 and it's hard to clean between the narrow spokes.

All Canadian modules come with the AMG appearance package but not the 20" wheels. The wheels are part of the sport package. I searched far and wide to find mine with the sort package and without the running boards and found a Tenorite Grey or I believe steel grey in the USA.
I also got the open pore ash wood interior. I'm really happy so far.
