Now that's sort of impressive since through the experience of others i've noticed they are most receptive to in person deals than on the phone or through e-mail.

Just received notice from my dealer that my GLE is in production. The dealership rep I talked to wasn't sure about the timeframe of delivery since she is new and her manager is gone for the day. I am located in Chicagoland and I believe the GLE are produced in Alabama. Does anyone know how long from the time in production to delivery?

I received my GLE450 last Friday. It took 3 days after production to arrive at my dealership in Florida.

I was debating the porcelain Napa leather, but saw the condition of those seats at the Chicago car show and they were very stained with the color blue from jeans. Will post picks when I get it!
Congrats on your GLE!

Good choice of selecting and building you car package!

I definitely agree with the lighter color for seats. Those denim jeans stain are a bugger!

Exciting for you!

Well the dealership rep, being new, jumped the gun and gave me inaccurate info. My build is not in production. Not even close. I ordered it in late February and I still don't have a build date and only in the "que" waiting for a production date. Now the dealership is telling me that they might have to bump me up to a 2017 build. That means that I probably wouldn't take delivery until August 2016. I am not happy and I don't know what the problem is. Did they stop production on 2016 in the month of February 2016? The dealership is supposed to call me Monday after he speaks with the plant in Alabama where the GLE are produced. Hopefully I will find out more details... Anyone else experience this type of problem?

That's why I like Tesla's vehicle purchasing process since it takes away all that middle man crap, it's just you buying the vehicle from the company, no conflicting bad motivations going on from someone trying to push product on you just for a commission.

Both my sister in laws work for Tesla. One of them manages all the stores in London. I test drove a number of them and the technology and acceleration is great, but I cannot stand the fact that there is no engine noise. I love a big, loud V8 and that's one of the reasons I picked the GLE with performance exhaust
