The fake exhaust is so lame. That's one big plus of the first gen CLA. It had real exhausts.

I don't think the 250 pops and bangs though. At least not in the rental I got but that was a standard 250. How does it sound in sport?

The new amg 35 and 45 have semi fake tips. There is at least a real pipe behind the tips but it's not fully connected. It's strange how bmw, Merc, Audi are even doing this in their top of the line flagships. Such a lame trend

I like what that one member did to his 2020 ... chopped off the fake ports and put real twins

Yeah a younger me might have done that. I think the 35 is the least offensive since the exhaust lines up and is only about an inch away from the exhaust tips. You really cant tell unless you look closely. The 45 is actually worse since its exactly the same two exhaust pipes as the 35 but the tips are quad tips which looks lame.

Well ... my vote is to be younger for a day hack those ovals out and weld on some pretty twins

mine has this valve too... the 220 (RIP) and the 250 comes with it. the valve opens in Sport, but no big difference. I saw this supersprint too but it has no ECE oder E Badge so it’s illegal here in switzerland :-(
