Frequently Asked Questions

Can I lease or finance my new car, even though I am picking it up on the European Delivery Program?

Yes you can

Is my new car legal in the U.S.?"

Indeed it is, and no, you do not have to convert it to American specs, as it fully complies with U.S. laws and regulations

Is the airfare included?

No - but I can help you find the lowest airfare available at the time of your trip. Or search on CONDOR, a great airline flying between the USA and Germany at very attractive airfares, even in Business Class! MB USA also offers you a $200 per person credit if you fly Delta. Check with me for details.

How much lead time do I need?

To receive your custom-made car on time, you need to order about 2-4 months prior to the intended pickup date at the factory in Germany. However, sometimes there are cars already produced that you may be able to pick up on short notice, as long as you are flexible on colors, options and accessories. Check with me.

How long does it take for my car to get to the States?

Usual transit time is about 4 - 6 weeks to the East Coast, and 8 - 10 weeks to the West Coast.

I live in Canada. Can I buy a car from you on this program even though you are in San Diego?

No, sorry. Canadian customers, please contact Deborah McLellan at

Can you help us with the planning of our travel itinerary?
