I can assure you it will look stunning. The nice thing about Mocha black (which also applies to Caspian blue and some other MB colours) is that it will look different depending upon the lighting. Sometimes it has a brownish hue, sometimes reddish or even greenish (that's why you must pick your interior colour very carefully). The metal flakes in the paint look like gold dust under certain lightings. It will definitely make heads turn. It is very chic. To be perfectly honest, Mocha black was the colour I had in mind from day one. I reluctantly went for another colour because of the price tag. I still adore my Caspian blue though. [:D]

Make sure you post some photos! [8D]

I will post photos dont worry!
Cool! Did you go for the whole package and get the Designo interior too? What colour? Any wood trims? My personal choice would have been the Nappa sand/dark brown interior with rosewood trims. I think I am as excited about this car as you are!!! [:D]

I had to wait for 4 and a half months for mine. I believe some guys had to wait for 18 months!!! Take my word, the moment you will sit in your car you will forget all about the long wait! [;)]

This forum is the only thing that has kept many of us from going insane while we waited for our cars. We are here for all of you that are still waiting.

I just had a birthday party for my car. I still clearly remember the moment that I saw it in front of me and a technician at the dealer fired it up saying "Listen to this. It sounds amazing!!!".

CONGRATS!!! Baby her for a while... That is another....ummm should not remind you of that period..LOL

Cheers

The car has to clear customs before it goes to the dealership. In my case, there was a whole week from the arrival of the car in Canada and the actual delivery (this includes customs, preparation, third party alarm installation, etc.). I wish my dealer wouldn't have called me when the boat arrived. The extra waiting period was excruciating. [:(]

Zut, I haven't even called my dealer since the date when I confirmed a March build for my car. On the theory that "a watched pot never boils," I hope to be pleasantly surprised when the dealer calls me, rather than being told that it's on the truck, fell off the truck, was lost at the port, etc., when I call them for the umpteenth time. Am I crazy, or perhaps just a little superstitious?[?]Dinoman
