European Delivery for SLK 350
Has anyone heard that, as of very recently, the SLK 350 is no longer eligible to receive the 7% discount under the European Delivery Program? It seems that this is a very new change to the program (no doubt due to the strong demand for the car). The SLK 280 is still eligible. My dealer and I noticed the change to the program on the Mercedes website (http://www.mbusa.com/edp/vehicles/lineup.do) and since it was news to him, he still maintained that the discount applies (and I have that in writing), even though I am not picking the car up until November (at the end of my expatriate assignment here in Germany). To secure the order, I put down a $2000 deposit. I was just wondering if anyone else knew about this change.
One other question...does anyone know how soon before delivery the VIN can be provided? I need this bit of info for the car loan from my credit union. They are also requesting to see the title but I'm working with them on this issue.
