If they make you wait that much and you're okay, you should've taken European Delivery and got yourself some drive time there atleast!

All GL's and ML's are made in US at Alabama plant. So no luck for European delivery program! I've no option except to wait since GL is the hottest selling 7 seater SUV in the market now.

Thanks Vineeth! Wanted a 7 seater and not a minivan guy. Test drove Infiniti QX56 but drive was not refined like GL. It's a Radar detector, I was all prepared before picking up the car from New Jersey. It was a long journey back home , almost 1200 miles near Chicago. It was one of the best long rides.

I picked this up from the MB USA website - Basically Viper has ticked all the option boxes! It is an SUV with great road presence! I really love it - goes toe to toe with the Escalade also in gangster appeal!

Viper, what part of Chicago area do you live at?

Lighting package (and not lightning package )Appearance PackagePremium 1 Package (included in premium 2)

Premium 1 PackagePremium 2 Package

Hey Vineeth, thanks for the correction. iPad typing I didnt go for options like massage seats, driver assistance package, on-off road package as I would never use them. I don't even use cruise control. As for the rear entertainment, I decided to have the headrest iPad holders.

I used to live in Des Plaines but i moved to Iowa City now.
