    Jake, I don't think that's correct. The standard suspension for the 250 I the US is a sport suspension but I believe the 45's standard suspension is different. I will see if I can locate the source of that to validate.

    I'm with Eric,

    Just by the fact that the CLA 45 is an inch (1) Lower!

    So it can not be the same suspension between CLA250 + Sport Package and CLA45

    Went for a drive yesterday in my brother's SL 500, a car some say has the best ride of any, and there was some difference going over bumps: the CLA is definitely more tightly wound. Of course, it's newer, with a completely different setup (FWD, turbo 4 instead of V8, HT instead of convertible...) So subjective - the SL sits much lower in cushier leather seats, and is rolling on conventional tires, not run-flats, which increasingly seem the major factor.

    I went out to dinner tonight in someone's new Smart car, and I couldn't wait to get back into my cushy CLA. Everything is relative.

    When you start date a girl, you will not see any faults with the girl, not because you don't see them, it's just that you don't want to see them . Then when things wear down, you will see only faults ...LOL !.

    Btw, congrats on the order... enjoy your car once received !.

    My 4,000 mile plus honeymoon is still going strong.
    When should I expect things to start wearing down?
    Will ED medications help?

    Once you get her pregnant then the honeymoon ends. Then things get cranky, and you have no sleep during the nights. Just imagine the horrors of having a baby CLA keeping you up all night!
    ED medication helps quite a bit from what I hear
