Called dealer a short time ago, said he will let me know by 10am tomorrow.

My F30 is getting transported from Melbourne to Sydney. Not sure how long that will take though.

Quite keen and cannot wait!

I was under the impression the Sydney cars were dropped off at Wollongong not Melbourne. I'm 80km nth of Sydney very close to the pristine beaches of the central coast

The thing is my order was not custom. There was a dealer in Melbourne who had the exact spec as my options so I purchased that one. Saved me a 3 month wait. Only 2 weeks if my dealer is correct.

Dealer will update me on the car tomorrow. Hopefully it's almost here!

Another Sydney-sider here. Not really the Hills District but close enough - Quakers Hill.

Haven't actually got my F30 yet, it's on the boat on the way over, I expect to see it in the first or second week of November.

I haven't seen that many F30's in Sydney. Here on the Central Coast is another matter, so many Mercs and BMW's here you 'd think you were in Europe. So yes quite a few F30's around and even an Alpine White - damn it, mine was meant to be the only white one around.
LoL I remember when i bought my X5, on that same week without us even knowing each other, another guy bought one of the exact same color and lives 2 blocks away, even the first 3 letters of the plate are the same. So much for individuality.
This time i went for custom plates so i can find my car in the shopping center car park amongst all the white F30's

Thanks mate. Very happy with it! Never thought I'd go back to a Merc, but the mind feels very 'settled' by choosing the Merc

Benz has gone quite strange with the look of their vehicles, the C class is the most attractive so far, the others have way too many sharp angles and not enough rounded edges. TWD what Benz did you buy?

I'm in Wahroonga.

I've had my Mineral Grey 328i Sports since July, very happy with it.

Ended up with the C250 coupe

IMO, looks amazing! One of Benz's best in terms of new cars.

The C250 engine is the way to go .. if anyone is considering a MB. I test drove it before considering the F30, luxurious, speedy and comfort all in one. The E coupe's look sleeek too
