SLK delivery in Australia moved back? [:(]

I live in Canberra, Australia.

I have on order an SLK 350. Meant to be made in Feb and delivered in April.

Went to my dealer this morning to ask how it was all going and he said that the Production date has been moved back from Feb to March.

So, delivery date is not MAY not APRIL.

Apparently this is Australia Wide. Can anyone please confirm this or does any know why this has occured.

G'day SLeeK,

Welcome to the site. Can't believe your getting your car so quick. I ordered mine last April and it is due for delivery this April. Even Marshall's and Tynan's saying you can order in October and take delivery in April is great compared to mine. Good luck to you anyway, going to Canberra and getting a car so quick.

I must have been very lucky. I ordered my car on 2 Sept, had it on 4 Jan, and it would have been last week of Dec if I was in the country.

Having said that, April to April is really poor performance on your dealer's side, unless it is a really unusual car (designo?) or maybe a 55.

G'day roadsta,

Yes, my 350 will be different, probably the only one like it anywhere, but they tell me it only delayed the delivery by one month. Can't say what it is at the moment, but I will post some photos when it arrives.

When I ordered the car back in April last year, I was told it would be December at the earliest and maybe as late as March 2005. Not sure how the system works, but it looks like a bit of luck comes into it as well. You must be very pleased getting what you wanted so quickly.

Good luck with your beautiful red car, my SLK 230 was Magna Red and looked fantastic.

C'mon (does that ring a bell?) agent1, you are way too coy. Tell us about the new car.

Thanks by the way for the club info. Have a crazy schedule until about April, will think about it then.

Yep, love the red. Thanks for the kind comments mate.

I'll attach a snap.
