So I dug a little and found some info that wasnít pertinent to what I was being told at my dealer, and that has logically aggravated me isnít that so hard to understand? When I post these things I hear I share them with you guys because weíre all waiting on this together

Every time they got an update it was passed onto me. My new G is not meant to timely replace a vehicle. If it were and I was coming out of a lease etc then this delay would cause some angst and frustration so I can relate to those that are in this box. Ultimately we are a bunch of enthusiast that appreciate the design, history and capabilities of the GWagen. Itís nice to find a place where one can go and find more detail than is available from any other source. Like AMG_Ghost stated is that he was taking all of the information he was gleaning from the different posts and coming up with his conclusions. Iím doing the same as many of you are. Is this delay causing me to rethink my decision on the ED1? Not yet. Talk to me again if I am still waiting in May? In the meantime I am still sitting tight and waiting eagerly and patiently and trying to be courteous of my local dealer and the Sales Manager as they have been great throughout the process. Thanks to all of you who have given feedback and helped keep us in the loop.
im tempted to ask for my deposit back and move on. Itís frustrating. Already missed the 2018 tax write off. And now Iím having to switch cars with my wife to take my kids anywhere. I have a 2016 GTS and plan was to be keep it til Jan 1. With no end in sight, itís making this a whole lot harder. Tempted to get a raptor, save 110k and call it a day

Do so you think the dealer will refund my 5k deposit? Itís not like they will have any issue selling a loaded designo white G63

I let my allocation go yesterday for the same reasons. I made it clear at the time I ordered that I needed the car before year end for tax purposes. I am expecting a full refund of my deposit. They are trying to keep my money and give me the first slot they have for a '20. I feel like the demand isn't really there anymore. In the meantime I bought a '16 G63 and enjoying the hell out of it.

Custom but not really bc the magno paints were delayed. Their ED1 car was spoken for. Basically Iridium silver and was able to get the black exclusive leather which was also in shortage and all other options including 22 inch black wheels. The car has been sitting at VPC since September. Making it one of the first cars to make it over, which is pointless now.

Iím basically in the same scenario. Designo diamond white, exclusive saddle brown interior, all other options. Have the ďfirst oneĒ in NC... but pointless as well, as itís stuck in VPC

Thanks for info! If I give it up, Iím blaming this and the fact they kept the stupid command interface versus MBUX

Black, too common
Cream, gets dirty easily
Brown champagne, probably nice, MB trying to market with other models in blue
Black/ blue, nice but different shade of blue
Black/ red, best sporty color, matches red break calipers
However, still in vpc since August

I've been told that all unfilled 2019 orders automatically become 2020 orders; therefore, 2020 is/will be nearly sold out.

Just wanted to pass along an available G63 allocation that is buildable. There is however a small markup.

My sales guy told me mine was awaiting a boat at the port. Should be here in a month.

PM me if you would like my sales guy's contact info

Good luck!

2019, I am sure since the first 19 hasn't even been delivered yet. I would guess the 20's won't be out until late fall. I did decide to change the wood to the VA1 Black Flamed Open-Pore Ash. Dealer told me I had until this coming Friday to make any changes.

Hey Nache,

I live in Dragonridge County Club. Don't have a AMG GTR, my buddy does and he has a house right near your area. The only Benz I have in the stable right now is my lifted G63 which you can't miss it, and Im sure you must of seen it around since we live not too far from each other. I do have the new G63 and also the AMG GT4 63s coming in. Both share very similar drivetrain. Ill mod them both probably, hahaha. I don't have anything stock in the garages, its a sickness. haha. If you see me on the road says what's up. If I'm not in the G the only other cars that would really stand out is my blacked on Range with Red Anodized Wheels and also my Nero Nemesis Aventador. The other cars are as easy to spot.

We do most of the work ourselves at my buddies shop right down the road from Trophy, on Hinson street as well. Have good one!

-Will
