mbusa.com website is UPDATED for 2013!

FINALLY! The new 2013 configurators AND 2013 brochures are available!

Nothing that we didn't already know about the SLK, but right now I am configuring my dream SL63 AMG

I just priced my exact car and it is $1,206 cheaper for the 2013 SLK 350 than my 2012 SLK 350 cost. Including the premium pkg as standard equipment now really saves some money.

Of course I've had mine to drive for over 13 months now and that was worth way more than $1,206 to me.

Well, my AMG went up $490 (base increase) + $200 (lighting package increase) + $30 (destination & delivery increase) = $720

Not bad at all. Could have been a lot worse!

Driver Assistance Package

Our car has been on order for 3 weeks for European delivery on October 8th. What concerns me is that when we ordered it their ordering system showed the Driver Assistance Package as available for 2013 (which is very important to my wife..it will be her car primarily). The MB site does NOT show it as an available package nor the components as options individually. I emailed her and she replied that she had just ordered another one for dealer inventory with that package. Why does the web site not show it? I certainly do not want to arrive in Germany only to discover that the car was not built to our specs...

What car is it? I know for a FACT that Driver Assist/PRE-SAFE/DISTRONIC PLUS is available on MY13 250/350. I saw a '13 250 at the dealer here in Denver on Friday and it had DISTRONIC PLUS and the Driver Assist (little Triangles in the side-view mirrors.)

Apparently, though, the SLK 55 AMG does NOT offer any of this and won't for this model year, at least.

What country are you located in?
In the US, the 997pkg –DISTRONIC PLUS Package which includes:
23P –Driver Assistance Package Code
233 –DISTRONIC PLUS with PRE-SAFE Brake
234 –Blind Spot Assist
299 –PRE-SAFE
476 –Lane Keeping Assist
is a SPC (special order) option.
As far as I know, SPC items usually are not shown in the MBUSA model configuration specs.

Looks like I need to complete my info. We are in Texas (Dallas) and have a SLK350 on order with Park Place. It sounds like I have nothing to worry about...surprises me though that the website would be so off. I can't wait to pick it up!
