  1. upgrading 2015 CLA 250 suspension shocks

    CLA General Discussion
    I spoke with the Bilstein Specialist and the B8 Plus Performance is definitely a step up in firmness over the OEMs, but according to the specialist, the ride is a whole lot smoother than the OEMs, significantly less "choppy". I guess the dampening of the Bilsteins B8 is much better than the...

    Guys, I am thinking of upgrading the front struts and rear shocks in my 2015 CLA 250 , which was factory optioned with the sports suspension. I checked out the authorized Bilstein dealer here in Vancouver Canada, and the cost of replacing the factory shocks with Bilstein B8 Performance plus...

  4. changed out the cabin filter

    CLA Maintenance / Care / Detailing
    The air coming out of the HVAC was starting to smell musky and the first thing was to order the combination cabin filter (Mahle) from Rockauto, which was significantly cheaper than genuine mercedes part, and also actually seemed much better built. This being the first time I changed the cabin...
  5. Will Uptis make run-flats obsolete?

    CLA General Discussion
    The actual tread depth is next to nothing, I wonder if the new rubber polymer compounds will enable long wear times. And as pointed out, how does this apply to high performance sports sedans, that take high speed cornering?

  10. Apple carplay for COMMAND NTG5.1 - retrofit?

    CLA General Discussion
    Yes, Waze works great on carplay in the MB app. But you have to set it up in Waze to be the primary nav app or when you call up for nav guidance, siri will call up google maps by default.

  12. Optimum spray wax + Meguiars ultimate polish

    CLA Maintenance / Care / Detailing
    It also depends on what colour of the paint your car has. If you have a dark coloured paint, then a whole lot more work is required to keep that looking great. Liquid waxes are great, easier to use than paste, but still work to apply and then buffing off as well. For my white CLA, I spend a...

  14. jerks on the road - the worst ones, those driving luxury cars like Range Rovers

    Off-Topic Discussion
    True... but the older fogie that I mentioned driving the Range Rover SUV, was in no hurry actually, as when he did get past me, he was not speeding off like a mad demon to go somewhere... On the 50km/h limited town road, he just could not wait behind another "cheaper" car... and so he tried...
  15. What can you use to clean a seat belt so it will retract automatically again?

    CLA General Discussion
    Its not the seat belt, its your roller mechanism, probably rusted out with all the sea salt in the air. Try spraying some WD40 the belt and force feed into the roller, and see if you can loosen up the rusted mechanism.

    Off-Topic Discussion
    Driving into work today, my daily route takes me through small town roads, rated at Max 50km/h, and there are lots of kids crossing roads, elderly, handicap etc... So I was pretty much contented keeping to the speed limit at 50km/h on this speed limited road, when this $#$##%%@@#! idiot of an...

  20. impressive fuel economy - driven very modestly

    CLA General Discussion
    This week, the school being out and families on vacation for the upcoming long weekend, the traffic is significantly lighter.
