C300 4Matic. Good looking car, more fun than you would expect, but awful seats and body roll

Car is finally at the dealership!!! 6 weeks from production start, but 10 from when the order went in, 12 from deposit (dealer had to trade for allocation, took two weeks to even get it in, Sandy didn't help).

Crappy iPhone pictures with a bad background is the best I can do for now. Drove 200 miles today. Love it.

Mine took 6 weeks and a day from order to delivery, but 328's are a lot easier to get allocations on. Good luck with it!

Good luck! I'll get some pics up as soon as I can find 5 minutes to do it.. Doesn't seem to be a good, quick option from my phone.

Finally some pics... just iPhone pics from last weekend when I picked it up, need to do a proper photo shoot when I have time. I've now put over 600 miles on it already, and this is quite possibly the best all around car I've ever had. Everything I loved about my Audi S5 and then some, but with an extra set of doors I needed since I've had kids, better lease pricing, and a moon roof that actually opens

Awesome. Love the black. I never would have been able to keep it clean or I would have gotten it.

Thanks. I avoided black for that reason on so many cars before finally giving in and getting black on an X5 and this is now the 3rd time out of my last 4 cars that I've gotten black, starting with the X5. Just can't resist now.. For what it's worth, while it was already a little dusty when I picked it up, the metallic paint hides it well enough from a few feet away. I think it would've been more noticeable with flat black.

I love mineral gray too though, almost got that.

Looks great! You should come to the code meet on Feb 2nd. Are you planning on any protective coatings/waxes/covers for your car?
