Well, thankfully, it didn't take long for some information to start flowing out of Mercedes after the CLA's official release date of last Friday, the 20th. Special thanks to forum regular JPMBenz (JP) from Contemporary Motor Cars in Little Silver, NJ for sharing the recently released 2014 CLA Accessories Catalog.

Whether you're interested in aluminum door pins, upgraded rims, or an illuminated three-point star for you CLA's front end, hopefully you'll find what you need.

Enjoy!

The AMG door pins look cool. Here's a link to several great photos that document the installation process and the finished look. Unfortunately, the pins are sold individually so you will be spending $80 USD (2x$40) to convert both front doors. I'm sold!

Eric - thanks for uploading and sharing the Catalog. I find the best CLA docs and publications here!

Thanks for the catalog list, I have a question on the wheel rims, is that $900 per rim or $900 for a set of 4 on the AMG 5 spoke twin style rims? And are all the rims quoted in sets or for single? Thanks.

Right! I recommend buying a 16gb from amazon. I think I stored from 5 to 6 thousand songs on the card. I just bought one for the car and leave it in the car. The 10gb hard drive is pretty useless because you cannot save the songs from the SD card on the hard drive.

Sometimes they are loaded with special content from Mercedes Benz.

What saves or how do you transfer songs onto the hard drive? Any chance of iTunes to HD?
You can transfer songs to the hard drive via a CD. So ripping CDs is the only way. No chance of itunes to harddrive; Just save your iTunes library to a SD card.

No one should complain about the sport package. $2200 is a bargain considering the wheels alone are retailed at $3600.

I need to reconsider the tire & rim insurance...
How many times in your life have you damaged a rim so badly you've needed to replace it? Don't forget your insurance coverage provides protection, too, assuming your deductible isn't extremely high.

Agree. $200 deductible here
