    Good to know

    And the rims were purchased with my car as an upgrade but I convinced my dealer to include them for free ! (On top of an additional $2200 off the asking price)

    Hope I got a good deal!

    Not trying to distract your effort here but the size of them is fairly small. I saw then installed on a Acura MDX and they are so small that they don't cover the caliper. I know IDcar has them in 3 sizes and that may be better option. Allow me to suggest the MGD covers. They look better. I have seen those on corvettes and even that they clearly look like a cover they do have some appeal and keep the dust off your wheels. Option two is to powder coat the calipers. Personally speaking your calipers look really well with those wheels so I will keep them as is.

    Just to let you know they are made from cheap plastic and they can damage your calipers also anyone who knows cars can understand they are fake cause they will not cover all of your calipers since they are not a direct fit

    I would suggest MGP but not sure if they do it for cla.

    First off, it looks awesome. That door LED is pretty cool. I have a question on how you fastened the TMC tuning box. Is it held down to the battery box cover with tie straps or some sort of adhesive tape? I'm in the market for a tuning box, but most manufacturers don't explain as to how or where is a good place to mount the box, and I really don't feel like drilling anywhere in the engine bay. Any advice is much appreciated!

    Thank you I'm glad you like it !

    Yes ! There is one plastic zip tie holding it to the battery cover and 3m tape underneath. It honestly fits perfectly between the hood heat shield and the battery cover so it is snug but is not too big for the spot. The zip tie is more precautionary than anything ! I hope this helps!

    Good to know ! With lots of people thinking the covers are a bad choice I have officially decided not to get them thanks for helping with my decision !

    What wheels did yours come with and where did you get the black ones?
