My poor experience is on the forum. Good riddance. MB's attempt for my generation: failed with me.
The Australian Spec Sheet states that you get "tinted glass all round" as part of the CLA 200 standard inclusions. However, packages like the Night Styling Package and AMG Line mention "Dark-Tinted Privacy glass from B-pillar to rear". Haven't got my car yet but does this mean all the windows are tinted but the rear windows are just darker? If so, how much should I be expecting to pay at the dealer / can anyone recommend a good tinter in Sydney?
you are right on the specs
The 250 gets the dark tinted privacy glass included for back windows, all windows on 200 are tinted as far as I can see, looked at one in the dealers yard today
the tinting glass looks quite tinted to me and the privacy glass is non-see thru, quite a black and noticeable difference to front windows
I just bought a CLA and had to get the tint redone after a week. I bought Tint Protector moleskin Felt and haven't had an issue since. I emailed them about putting together a kit for the CLA and they said it was in the works. I bought the Universal kit and had no issues. Love this car!
Now I just want MB to update the DCT software. The shifts are not smooth enough.

If you want a money back guarantee and can talk to the staff because they are very accommodating, then you should try going to https://tintmywindowsperth.com.au/. They have been my go to tinting service for 3 years now, and I haven't regret a single thing. You should approach them and ask for a quote.
