Question Special Order Delivery Time? Special Paint Possible?

These are two questions that I think belong together.

Supposed you look up a car at mbusa.com and go to the "build" tab and then specify exactly how you want it.

1. Once you order the car at the dealer, how long would it take to get delivered? (Does it matter if the car if coming from the US or Germany?)

2. Is it possible to order a car in a color from a different model? For example, you like the C300 AWD Sedan but you want it in matte black, which is not listed as a color for that model.

I ordered my GLE 350 ago, and they told me it can take from 8 to 12 weeks. And no I don't think you can pick a diff model paint color.

The flat black will not be allowed to order.

Seeing as the C class is now also coming from Alabama then the 8-12 week time is about right.

I'm going to exercise my freedom of speech and say that matte paint looks ugly AF.
