Hey everyone, just signed the paperwork today for a 2017 with South Seas Blue exterior and Beige/Black interior. Delivery will be sometime late in November (not sure if they are available later but that's when I need it). I will be counting down the days until it happens but in the meantime I was wondering if anyone had pics of their South Seas Blue that I could look at and also the Beige/Black interior. Obviously that will be a rare combination but if you have either please share some pictures or links to them. I tried looking at all the pics on the site and only found one South Seas Blue but there must be more of that beautiful colour out there.

Below are the renderings from the customizer.

Going Premium Plus package and Executive Package. Foregoing any of the AMG add ons though (calipers, wing, performance exhaust). I still have until the end of the month to make any final changes so if anyone has any "can't miss" suggestions I can always add them on!

Thanks and looking forward to learning more about this great car.

Welcome to our GLA forum hrosenberg33. You're possibly the first to have a 2017 45 on order, though it sounds like a couple others are still considering options. Look for posts by SSBGLA45, who also has an award winning South Seas Blue 45. Please keep us posted on your progress, and in the meantime there's an ever growing community body of knowledge here.

Congratulations on your order.

Pam and I ordered her 2017 GLA45 in April for a late August European Delivery. We were working off of the April version of the DOG then.

I just received the 9 of June version today. There are two changes ... base prices have been determined and represent a marginal increase, and the option for the passenger power seat is being discontinued since it will be standard starting in September.

I can't find the Executive Package in either of those versions. Can you please detail what this is?

Thanks ... Wayne

Welcome!! Performance exhaust would be on the top of my list but that's just me. I don't regret getting it at all.

Where are you in Canada hrosenberg33? I am from GTA, I placed an order for MY17 GLA45 back in March. Dealer told me the order will be MY17 at the time.
Till this date, they are not able to provide the delivery date for me.

Ottawa, I still don't have an official production date or delivery date. The deal was worked with the understanding that we would aim for a late November to mid December. I have to finalize my interior colour by the end of the month so I hope to have firmer dates then.

I think I should be good unless there's some weird stuff like what happened with the MY16s that seemed to be delayed for a while. At least that's what I'm hoping!

Our of curiosity what exterior/interior did you go with?

I went with white with black/red stitching interior.

My dealer also didn't know the final pricing either for MY17. Was it same for you?

Speaking strictly from my perspective in my market in the USA ...

It looks like Canada has different packages than we have in the USA! Here in the States we can't get under seat storage trays, folding mirrors, or LED Dynamic Headlights. We only have the 2 liter motor (MB or AMG). We have no diesel option. I guess it makes sense that other markets have different option packages!

In the USA, while 2016 orders were shut off on 18 March, we did not get a DOG (Dealer Order Guide) until April. The dealer could not take an official order in the interim.

I am concerned that a March order may be floating in space.

Ask your dealer to show you your order status on their computer screen. This will tell you if the order is pending approval, has been accepted and is waiting, if it is close to locking, or if it has locked. On the USA this is color coded white, green, yellow, and red.

While many of the options prices were listed on the April DOG, the one just released is the first to indicate base pricing. There are still missing ala carte options that our dealer was able to select for us in April, but only from his computer screen (Selectable Adaptive Suspension for instance). There are options with tba pricing (Carbon Fiber Dash Trim for instance) so we do not have a final price yet.

But we do have a specific day in August for our factory delivery. A personal pick up may be more specific than a boat crossing the ocean to a port with secondary shipping and preparation involved.

Good luck getting things nailed down.

Hey garu, no final price yet. I'm leasing so contract states if price goes up by more than 25$ per month with the discount percentage we agreed to then I can back out (so it will depend on new MY17 pricing, lease rates and residuals). Hopefully as Wayne found out in the US the prices stay pretty much the same in Canada.

Thanks for the tips Wayne!

As with all orders (at least here in the states), you are not committed to anything until the car is infront of you and you sign the papers. Even the deposit is refundable

Not always refundable on deposits. I was surprised and a bit shocked when I ordered our 2016 GLA250 just about a year ago this week. The dealership stated the custom order was so high-priced for the model they wanted a $2500 vice standard $1000 refundable deposit and it was non-refundable, to which I had to sign acknowledgement. My guess was the deposit might be negotiable on another MB, however. That said, it was quite a shocker, though the sticker on my GLA250 was indeed higher than those the dealership ordered.

Any good news? The website said, 06/15/16 started to accept order. Do anyone get the price and ordered?
Not sure where you're located but in Canada we are usually about a month or two behind US. So if this is based on US schedule, I am thinking we should be getting update sometime in next month. :(

Hmmm, to be honest the bottom of the contract makes it sound like the deposit is not refundable (here in Canada). I'm sure if you put up a big fight you could probably get it back. The big thing for me was a way out if the price went up by some unreasonable amount. After all...I'm not changing my mind about the beautiful car. :)

I'll email my sales consultant to see if they have Canadian prices.

Hi Wayne,

Do you mind share the 9th June DOC?
My dealer never send me anything updated :(

Thanks,
Steve

Concerning the deposit… since it varies by dealership to dealership for refundable deposits, I would absolutely get WRITTEN verification that the deposit is refundable for any reason. If dealership declines that then assume they do (and maybe will) have the option to keep the deposit.

In my case, my GLA45 was a 'custom' order (read this next statement as if it was spoken by a German engineer "AMG sind Silber, schwarz oder weiß... nicht blau) since I wanted (a deal breaker if the order did not have the SSB color) the South Seas Blue color only. Took 3 months to get MB to accept order. With that said I had NO problem with the $1500 non-refundable deposit since the AMG was exactly as I ordered, even though knowing that in Florida there is NO 3 days-after-purchase (aka cooling off period) to return and get full refund (some other states do have a 'cooling off period law ) In my case I knew I wanted to car….the AMG is addictive (this will be my 3rd AMG owned)
