  1. 2015 CLA 250 worth $75,000 ?

    CLA General Discussion
    I was actually on the fience about the C63 when I bought my CLA. AWD just isnt all the important for people in the south. Although, AWD is a must for a FWD based CLA 45. And IIRC, the dealer offered a decent discount on the C63 becasue it was an outgoing model. I was able to haggle it down...
  2. Cla45 carbon ceramic brakes !!!

    The title of this post should really be "Painted CLA45 calipers to look like carbon ceramic brakes". I do admit I love the color though.
  3. 2015 CLA 250 worth $75,000 ?

    CLA General Discussion
    When I shopped for my CLA I saw a fully loaded 45 with a sticker price of $65k and I thought it was too much. Its shocking how much these cars can go for considering the alternatives and what can be had for not much more.
  4. is changing the CLA45 turbo worth it at all?

    Are you sure he meant told? Based on the prices he probably meant they trolled him :hihi: To the OP, you probably should have just bought a C63 if you're considering such an expensive upgrade.
  5. What did you do to your CLA today?

    It does have does have some paint leveling ability so it actually will remove lighter swirls, not hide.

    I polished my car yesterday. Excellent polishing abilities and very easy to work with but poor protection. I ended topping it with Menzerna wax.
  7. Down Pipe Install (Crash Bar Method)

    CLA Modifications / DIY
    Will something as simple as a O2 sensor spacer fool the ECU so it wont trigger the CEL? I was planing to add the down pipe and plug and play tune at the same time and perhaps the transmission cooler down the line.

    Welp, the end is near for this thread. I finished modifying the false floor and under deck trim today. I was really temped to make a more flashy floor trim with a molded grill and suede trim but decided towards a more sturdy build. I am planing to use the trunk so I used a heavy gauge steel...

    Ive been tuning for the past several days now and im pretty pleased with the overall SQ of this system. The headroom and output is fantastic, my original goal. I also have been slowly modifying the false floor so the amps wont overheat and highlight the amps a bit when the trunk is open. My...

    It appears to be some sort of wi-fi hot spot icon?

    I will eventually make a false floor with a mesh grill opening. Wiring work done. It took a bit loner than I expected but its done and out of the way.

    Additional deadening on the C-class? Probably not. It really could be anything. Better designed door and window seals, better isolation between the cabin and trunk, perhaps better barrier pad on the firewall (The CLA only uses a foam pad where a lot of other cars uses mass vinyl). It only...

    I have now completed re-assembling the car. I also took the car for a spin and get lunch. The deadening seems to have made a pretty big difference. It seems most of the higher frequencies have been blocked. The annoying tire noise is now a much lower tone. The exhaust sound seems to sound...

    Hard to beat $20 for nearly 2L.

    :hihi::hihi::hihi: Based on the specs of the material, its only about 1/4". But since the MLV and foam can quite fill all the grooves there are areas where its raised up close to 1/2" Finished off the rest of the economy rum. No I'm really done for the day. ROTFL

    Final update for the day. For the most part, I finished everything I needed to do today. I finished putting back the battery and put back the interior. Im pleasantly surprised that the carpet went back with very little fuss. In fact, it the carpet seems to be more snug and fit better. I...

    Thank you. Its really not that difficult. This car is designed pretty well and comes part fairly easy without the risk of braking. Thanks, JMC. Forged wheels are what I would like but most are at least $5-6k. That would buy some nice performance upgrades though.

    I got up at 4am to get around the heat and finished the battery area. When I replaced the OEM battery with the NorthStar battery, I gained a few inches. This is back of the battery box (turned sideways in the pic) where I mounted the fuse holder for the radio and accessories in the center...

    The deadening was done to reduce the overall cabin noise. With all this work, hopefully it quiets down the car to more acceptable levels. lol

    Day two. I got up very early to get around the heat. Just about all of the deadening is done and I ran new power wire. Stripped interior. Overall, it wasnt too hard. My only snag was the driver's seat. I couldn't take it out the drivers door because the steering wheel was in the way...
