Time to order your new 453

OK Folks

I know that many of you are anxiously waiting to custom order a new 453.

My dealership just got the word that is it now possible.

We are requesting a signed buyers order AND a $1000 deposit.

Unfortunately, ONLY 453 hard-tops are available (the convertible will come later).

If you are in/near the Washington DC area, we want your business.

Probably should be in the Dealership forums since this is a dealership activity.

Is the rear parking assist available? It originally showed a delayed release.

Is the first round still not customizable? I had heard of the first round of deliveries being pre-set by the factory, but I'm not sure if that's true or not.

I have some that are due to be built in late June and I was able to change specs on those (our 1st allotment). I have about 10 more due to be built at a later date that are 'changeable' too! So, you should be able to spec out what you want!


*** Also in defense of the other dealership, we charge 10% deposit on all our cars (Smart, Sprinter & Mercedes-Benz).

Your confusing two different post. Someone previously posted their dealership will order one for $,1000 deposit and a signed 'purchase agreement'. Then there were a few surprised or shocked responses, thinking that was too much.

I stated that it was indeed very fair, as we won't order a car for less then a 10% deposit and a signed 'purchase agreement' for all three of our brands. There have been zero complaints and I am ordering 4-5 cars a month (Mercedes-Benz & Smarts).

MSRP on a 2016 453 Smart Pure is $14,650 + Destination charges.
