I went in and asked about the waiting list for the new clk and the salesman told me there was none. If I wanted I could get mine 3 weeks to a month after they started production at the beginning of July. I asked why there was no waiting list and he told me he thought no one really knew about the change in body style. Once the new style took to the streets there would be a 'frenzy' of people trying to order just cause it was new. It took my 7 months to get my 320 2 years ago this July. Do you think this guy is correct in his assumption or is he just trying to hype it's popularity? Was the 98 clk hard to get even before production? I ordered mine two years after production started and it was hard to get. Would like to hear your opinions.
