news about R 2008?

I´m waiting my R320CDI for april 2007. Yesterday the dealer told me that Mercedes has stopped this model, so is impossible to give me the car at this date. They told me the new model can be here in july 23.
Someone have the same problem? Have you news about this?

They may do just as well stopping the production entirely since it is a poor seller, so far.

I would think if they really cared, and they may not, and you weren't too picky about color, they could find you one.

Welcome to the club! I had put down a deposit and order on a R320CDI with a May (first decade, 10 days of May) build date. I got a call last week from dealer telling me that Mercedes had canceled all the R class production for May. So I am waiting for them to open the order slots for the 2008 models. My dealer did not have any information on when they will be able to actually place the order.

My only concern is that a it was reported in Automotive News that at the NADA dealers meeting when Mercedes met with their dealers they said there would be "unspecified changes" in the R Class for 2008. No one seems to know what those changes are at this point.

I spoke with Mercedes Germany, and they told me that it is incredible. The just reason for the delay of my car is that the dealer did not my order on time, they don´t stop any producction for little changes. They do his orders each three months.
Friends in Europe told me that the new changes could be in the seats of the second row, changing two for three seats. So, the R class will have 7 passengers, but this is not sure.
