Which is why I posted it. Too much speculation.

Good to know—thanks!

Mine is on Valiant Ace, too. She's running behind a few days.

Via Molroro site...looks like the Valiant Ace schedule has been updated. Honduras today, El Salvador tomorrow, Guatemala on Saturday. Then, up the West Coast to Long Beach and Port Hueneme by 8/30 and 8/31...

Valiant Ace is on her way to Long Beach. Port contact there said the ship is operating normally and no further delays in schedule are expected.

Here's the ultimate destination before release: https://www.google.com/maps/place/Mercedes-Benz+Vehicle+Preparation+Center/@33.8274029,-118.141914,18z/data=!4m5!3m4!1s0x80dd324730018abf:0x119e4435e977a dc4!8m2!3d33.828269!4d-118.1422352?shorturl=1

Vehicles are trucked (not driven) from Port to VPC in most circumstances.

The Martorell arrived in Long Beach yesterday. So I guess I just have to exercise some serious patience for the cars to be released. Where can I find the list of when the cars get their EPA certification?

My car on the Emerald Ace is right behind you. Hits port 9/4. Probably gets released to the dealer in 2024.

Thanks! Looks like our cars will be keeping each other company...hopefully not for too long...

New G550 is good news. I think that might be the first 2019MY with the 4.0L V8 approved. Definitely feels like we're getting closer to the big-boy cars now.

Agreed. Ugh. Well...suddenly it’s basically September. Guess October hurts, but this too shall pass. Ugh.

Very very likely we will get our cars mid-October to mid-November - no way around this unfortunately.

Also, just to be clear. No 63 car that was emissions tested last year is waiting for emissions approval. There were no meaningful or significant changes that would alter emissions results. This is purely marketing/business.

100% sure about this? No need to certify annually?

Yes. If an engine is identical from one year to the next its certification rolls over to the next year. Manufacturers don't have to pay to retest and certify an engine that has already been certified.

Even if there are potential software changes? I'm totally ignorant about this--but figured with recent software "cheats," if there was a change in software (which I'm not sure if there even is a change for the E63S for 2019), the gov't would want to retest?

Would love it if they didn't have to--meaning it's just the one roadblock (MBUSA) versus an additional one (gov't).

This isn't always true. But in the case of the 63-series cars, should hopefully be the case.

If the changes aren't "meaningful" or "consequential" then you aren't required to resubmit for re-certification. That decision is up to the individual companies, which is why most just do bug fixes throughout the year, no tuning. Think about it, if that were true for any modifications to the code, then you would be stopping sales for re-certification throughout the year at multiple times. An example of when you DO resubmit is the face-lifted SVR Range Rover, it got a 25hp bump from 2017 to 2018 so the engine had to get re-certified. In general, if there are no changes in output, parts, etc. then you don't have to submit for re-cert and the '19 E63's powertrain is identical to the '18s.
