    I wanted to share a PDF of the 2017 CLA U.S. Dealer Ordering Guide and price(updated 6/1/16), but I'm not sure how to do it. Thoughts? Advice?

    So you don't like the 2017? :D
  3. 2017 CLA Packaging and options (Canada)

    As of yesterday the online configurator made no mention of many of the options including the track pack. And this is a 2016 MY? Way to go, MB!

    Is yours a diesel like mine? I am waiting for a buy back before I spring large amounts of dough on my next car.

    A car does not have to be Europeanish to make me feel good. Not sure that where a car is built somehow makes it better.

    I've seen three CLA250s in the last 2 days. Great looking cars, especially in white. Seen only 1 CLA45 in the last 2.5 years. The 45 has my blood flowing. Not sure if it's a bargain, tho. I think it's rationally priced by MB considering its competition though. Ultimately, the AWD may make...

    But Eric, you could get a GT350R (with the rear seat option that would seat four) and go faster than a GT4. . . :D

    I'm far more into function than appearance, and I have almost no brand loyalty. If a $55,000 American car is more engaging and fun to drive than a CLA of the same price I'd lean towards the American car. The CLA45 should be an awesome car with the 2016 updates, and I hope there's a review of...

    I've been talking about handling, so I'm not sure what you are talking about. Never said the GT350 was "all about finesse" either.

    Folks are raving about the GT350 on the track, so I presume it carries a great degree of finesse and is an engaging car to drive. Some have compared it to the GT3. But the CLA or M2 would prob be more practical. With the Ford I'd have to have a DD given all the snow we get.

    Nice! Love the white with black wheels and trim.

    Either MT or a high tech AT. No particular preference. I grew up with manuals so I'm good with that. I never thought a manual in traffic was that big of a deal.

    Good info. Thanks! Keep us posted after you drive it hard once break in is over. I'm really curious about how engaging the updates make this car. I'm torn between the CLA45, GT350 and M2.

    ??? LT1Camaro said he has a "2016 CLA45 (newly picked up)", so I think my questions are on point and accurately reflect how a 2016 CLA45 can be equipped, including Race mode if AMG Dynamic Plus is ordered. Not sure if I agree with your assessment of AWD either. The last AWD car I owned was...

    Mercedes-Benz CLA45 AMG
    LT1: A few questions. 1. How many miles on it so far and have you driven it like a rented mule yet? 2. Do you have the AMG Dynamic Plus option? 3. If you do have that option, have you driven it hard in the Race mode? If so, what is your impression of how it performs in that mode when...
