Selenite with night package is what I am getting. Hopefully have it by mid-Sept now. :/
Though I'm getting the AMG interior, two downsides are 1) no ventilated seats, and 2) no heated steering wheel.

What color interior/trim are you getting?
The white also looks good. Both good choices!

I just signed for the grey/AMG/21 inch wheels, changed interior to macchiato/grey (instead of black leather after the black/grey became unavailable),
so no changing now. I still think polar white with AMG looks great. No wrong choice there.

I think the Macchiato is very nice, but worry about the effect of you jeans? The grey oak trim would be beautiful with that, as posted by Fire Rx Captain:

We will have almost identical exterior-speced vehicles, only difference I went with the night package. Interior black MB Tex with H31 trim natural grain grey oak.

Greg, I do still worry about the jeans, but the black (unlike the grey/black) has all black dash, etc... and I decided that might be too dark for me. I am still not happy about the limited choices. Re-ordering did give me a chance to go back and add things to the car, as did my husband. Unfortunately, both cars are more expensive now (really looking forward to the massage seats).

I almost got the night package. I think it looks great! No going back now, though.

Grey trim

I got the H18, which is high gloss grey. Really wanted the wood/leather steering wheel, but would have had to choose the natural grey. The heated steering wheel is going to be a nice change, my first one!

Hi Beth. I never quite understood why MB limits when you can order the heated steering wheel. It's standard on the X7 and notice where they position the on/off button, right in the front of the wheel:

Joe, it's been a long time since I've ordered a car from any other car company, but the Mercedes limitations seem a bit strange to me.

I read that you change your exterior color to Grey. I've seen several GLE's in that color and it's very nice along with the AMG Line Exterior.

beth22 So I've decided on the selenite as well, with black leather interior/headliner and the aluminum trim. Already have a white/black car so be nice to change it up. Plus, the selenite grey looks too good with the AMG night line package. Hoping to order this weekend, despite all the issues and delays, unless the dealership can find one close to my configuration that's already in inventory.

I think the darker grey looks great with amg too. My husbands order will be iridium and no amg , so we can tell the cars apart
Two people who get the cars we ordered with the ventilated seats missing will be pretty happy
to get them in June, so itís all good.

The black/magma grey nappa leather right? Yes, that one looks really nice with the selenite gray but it's an extra $2990. I think I cans settle for the all black leather interior with aluminum trim.

Agreed. If my last two cars werenít silver, Iíd opt for the selenite with AMG night package. It just looks so good.

Mercedes-Benz has a family of steering wheels that are used for ALL vehicles--from the humble Vito/Sprinter vans, up to the plutocratic Maybach. Using a family of steering wheels, there are a great number of variations in colors and trims, as each class of vehicle has different color combinations available. This is compounded by the number of markets, as many of the larger global markets have market-specific colors & trims.

They have consciously limited the heated steering wheel for all "mainstream" vehicles (classes A through E) to a round, black-leather setup--hence the limitation of the heated steering wheel. Hope that helps.

ON ORDER: 2020 GLE 450
Hi folks,

Looking at a 450 build and I thought I saw that the 21-inch AMG multispoke w/black accents are coming in with summer tires only - is that correct? Or are they all-season tires?

Thanks.

All Seasons (R02). 22" (580) & 23" (GLS) wheels where available come with Summers.

Thanks GregW

Oops just thought of two extra questions:

- Are the active LEDs any brighter and/or is there a color difference vs the regular LEDs?
- What discount can be had with an MB HQ control number? Is it still 12.25% off MSRP?

Thanks again

I sure hope he is. I don't think anyone here has waited longer, nor provided so much insight into the new GLE's. I hope he gets it and finds the wait was well worth it. I can't wait to see pics of his new ride.
