What does Priority 1 Status actually mean?

Poster BenzC400 asked in the coupe/cab forum: "Does anyone know what “Priority 1” status really means. My understanding is that it means a car has been purchased by a specific customer and will receive priority shipping, delivery and handling. Is that correct? Does it really make a difference?"

I'd love to know, too. Thought I'd repost the question here because this forum is much more active, and filled with good advice and insights from experienced MB owners.

Yes, to basically all the above. A car, specifically ordered for a customer gets a build date and once built, is handled through the rest of the process to get to you as quickly as it can be. It takes priority over dealer ordered inventory.
