Hello Everyone. I'm a new member, although I don't have a MB yet. But here's the story. I want to surprise my wife with a 2009 C300 for our wedding anniversary. I e-mailed some dealers in my area (South Florida) requesting quotes for the car I want to get, and none of them have it, offering me instead something from their inventory, and have not mentioned if I could special order one. I want to lease the car, and this is what I want:
Black exterior. black or gray leather seats, 18 inch wheels, and Tele-Aid.

Is there a way to order what I want?. Would it cost me so much that I would not be able to negotiate MSRP?

Another question. Would it be better to get a C350? I haven't seen too many on the road.

Thank you

Sounds like a very nice gift!

I don't know how the car market is over there, but in our country the dealers are really pushing their built stocks of cars and this is where the most discount is to be found. It's certainly possible to order a car for factory build (and personally I would always prefer this unless the discount was very substantial!) but you would have to wait for a slot in the build schedule and for them to ship the car over to you.

If you do go for a factory order, then perhaps consider the factory delivery option if available? Combining a holiday with the car purchase to collect the car from the factory in Germany and to use it for a few days before it's shipped over to the USA.

Good luck with the purchase and welcome to Benzworld!
