Ok, i have specific orders, not unusual, but not on dealers floors. After initially told to wait 6x months for both, I was just told to wait another 3x months for A-Class.
This is all from 03-March. I have contacted other dealers and main distributer, and all tell me same story after they investigated, so I am satisfied it is a factory problem
How is this even possible....? Who knows what is going on at factories ?

I don't see a problem at the factory if customers want so eagerly these cars.

There is a face lift coming too. Where are you from? Perhaps they don't want to deliver the pre-face-lift model.

6 months is nothing unusual in Europe. I was waiting my latest car for 8 months. 12 is possible although less than 6 is typical.

A-class isn't MB's highest profit product, makes no sense to compromise production of other cars to be able to sell these.

The high fuel price increases the demand for smaller cars everywhere, likely increasing delivery times for an A-class.

We waited full year for delivery on out ML320 back in 1997.
I had a feeling that they kept us waiting extra long, because we didn't want any $4000 options.
