Tracking The 453s For Canada

110 posts in this topic

That seems to happen a lot with new model introductions. The GLA got delayed after initial shipments arrived off the boat because TC determined they weren't tall enough off the ground to qualify as "utility vehicles" so the limo tints on the rear windows were not kosher. Mercedes had to raise the rear suspension by 5 mm.

October 13, 2015. A few more trickling in. By contrast the lion's share of the cars headed to this continent are going to the US.

Excellent! Just heard from my dealer that our new 453 is one of those listed in the January 18th shipment!

Congratulations!

One of the first to own a 450 and now one of the first to own a 453!!! :thumbup:

Was yours custom ordered?

Yes, we custom ordered lava orange & black passion with the sport package. Since my wife is not a driver (she really never got used to the tiptronic in our old 450), we've gone for the DCT.

Honestly, I'd love to take a 5-speed manual out on a track sometime. Sadly, those seem rarer than dodo birds in Canada...

Cool!

I just saw my FIRST 453 in person at the Surrey, BC dealer. It was all back and not too exciting looking in the dark and rain. Didn't love the wheels...... But looking forward to seeing some other colours in due course. Funny to see the car end up at $23,000 before tax, complete with a $700 doc fee! LOL Oh, and a solid roof at that.

Hi Keith!

After being rather underwhelmed by the first few photos of the 453 (that nose!), I was pleasantly surprised once I'd finally seen it in the flesh. Perhaps enough time had passed that I was mentally prepared for the worst.

The demo I had was silver and black (the pic was taken when I brought it home to ensure it would fit in our very small parking spot). A neighbour has just picked up the moon white on black, and I've seen a blue on silver as well as a brown on silver (which turned my stomach, even in the dark of night). Just like with the stream green a decade ago, we're jumping in with the crazy lava orange — sight unseen, based only on their official promotional photos. Fingers crossed!

With the pano roof, heated seats, touchscreen & sport packages, we're probably spending a little over $3500 more than what our 450 cost back in 2005. Not terrible, considering the 450 pulse didn't have A/C or the automatic option.
