Designo paintwork in the UK costs an extra £1125 upwards if my memory is correct.

unfortunately i do not have a current brochure to hand to give you the exact figure, but i think that is correct with the varicolours costing £1712 and chromaflair £3632 (gulp!)

BTW i drive a benitoit blue 350. If you see one around town its more than likely to be mine! ;-)

There is no need to wait more than 3 months now for an SLK in the UK. A 12 month wait is just plain nonsense????????????

ditto that! Call around I am sure you will get one 3 to 6 months. If you are flexible with colour and options you might be able to get one for next weekend, my dealer had 2 in stock on the showroom!

I think you should call round the dealers. My local dealer quoted early 2006!!!
But another dealer offered a factory build to my spec today for delivery this April. [:D]
So i took that, maybe he had a late cancellation or something.
I guess I was in the right place at the right time.
A number of dealers have prebuilt cars but you may have to be flexible on colour / features.

I ordered my car in September, and got a phone call last week saying could I go in and spec my car (needs to be done by end of March), and hopefully will be an end of May/beginning of June pickup!!!! [:D]

8 month wait but worth it!!! [:D] Plus I did kind of expect this with living up North, the dealer does not get as many new SLK allocated to them as down South would. [:(]

They sell their demo cars after 3 months, which for the last SLK demo was in October/November and since then they've just not been able to get a new demo in!!! They've had to borrow one!!! [:0]

ordered late september arrives early March,

Just a 5 month wait for me and thats from North Yorkshire - not too far from Cumbria.

When I first looked at the car I specified one requirement for them to get my depoisit - March 05 delivery.

I called the same dealer a day later, out of curiosity, not diclosing who I was to be told to expect an 8-12 month wait if I ordered now.

When I enquired in December I still had little solid assurance of a March delivery, and was advised no UK MB dealer knew their allocation from March onwards.

I just played dumb and let them know I expected the vehicle March and anything but would result in no sale.

The problem with my local dealer at the moment, is that they don't seem to be bothered about getting your custom or not!!!! [V]

My Dad went in before Christmas to enquire about purchasing a new M Class off them, and they were just not interested at all in trying to sell him a car. [:(!] He ended up going to Glasgow, to get one - didn't get a better deal but felt like they wanted his custom!!! [8D]

I think the problem in the UK now is that MB have thinned the number of dealers now, and so they don't really have to fight for your custom anymore, cause they're normally the nearest dealer to you!!! Alos with purchasing a new SLK and knowing I'd be in and out a bit of the dealership, I wanted somewhere that I could pop into on my lunch hour!!! [8D]

But so far they've not been too bad - I'm just curious to find out if they get my Bremen pick-up organised alright!!! [:0]

12 months? That's Rubbish.

I could get one in 3-4 months if I ordered one now (and that's the rarer AMG). Shop around if you want your car badly enough.

You can get the prices online at :
http://www.mercedes-benz-usedcars.co.uk/
designo metallic £1130
designo varicolour/mystic £1720

I know the problem you are having choosing colours, I've got to spec mine in the next couple of weeks and I just cannot choose what colour and to make things worse have a look at Graphite/Mystic Blue/Havanna :- see url: www.mbslk.de
