I just found this website, and its great !
I ordered a 2003 C230 3 weeks ago. with options C1,C5,C7 and heated seats. The disappointing thing is, I have to wait for it to be built and shippd from Germany. The dealer said it should arrive around Thanksgiving.
I see from all of the postings, everybody loves the car !
If anybody has any info on the new 2003, please forward any information !

Reddddvett from Long Island !! :wink:

Welcome to the forum. You'll love the car. What color are you getting? If you have any questions, don't hesitate to ask.
The average wait for a custom order seems to be about 2 - 2 1/2 months. Don't worry, you'll have fun when you get it. Welcome to the forum. :D
Redddvett you should got the the C-Class forum (W203), that's where most of us C230 owners are.

Congratualtions on the new C230.

Is your other car a red Vette? I have an 89 Red on Red as well as my C230.

The major delay seems to be the shipping.
My 03 C230 was scheduled to be built in the first week of October, and was scheduled for landfall around the middle of November.

The dealer called and sez the car was built on September 30th, but still won't make it to southern CA until November 15.

We thought the west coast port lock-out might have delayed things further, but all Benz's are shipped to the Eastern US ports then transported via land transport.

Can't wait!
Cars for the 18 western states arrive at either Long Beach or San Pedro (not sure which) and are processed at the MBUSA Vehicle Preparation Center in Carson. The other VPC's are located in Baltimore and Jacksonville.
