* will the side mirror tilt down when reversing?
* are headlight washers included?
* is it confirmed that the side mirrors don't electrically fold?
* anybody think its wise to wait for the 4matic to come out?
* anyway to order 18 inch wheels with all season rubber?
* no front foglights but rear included?
* what color is the headliner?

* assuming the design of the engine is very close to the 1.8 in c-class how is the reliability in that engine? Anybody foresee issues with carbon deposits?
* any programming tricks on these cars like vagcom on vag cars?


Thanks

Hi Ismail,

Are we talking about the European or US market ?

I can give you some answers for the European market.

* will the side mirror tilt down when reversing?
-- No

* are headlight washers included?
-- Standard light no, Bi xenon yes

* is it confirmed that the side mirrors don't electrically fold?
-- In Europe this is optional in the mirror package

* anybody think its wise to wait for the 4matic to come out?
-- Depends on what roads you drive on, here in The Netherlands I think not.

* what color is the headliner?
-- Black or light grey (depends on seat type and color)

* assuming the design of the engine is very close to the 1.8 in c-class how is the reliability in that engine?
-- CLA is based on A class frame and engines not C class. Heard no problems about these FWD drive engines so far.

Regards,

Dennis

I have the mirror and memory pack. I believe the tilting if the passenger side mirror tilts down if set as part of the memory pack. The drivers wing mirror stays as previously adjusted. I believe this helps when reversing do you can see the kerb but to be honest I stay well clear with any alloy wheels let alone the black diamond cut multiple spoke wheels.

Please, please guys, update your profiles to indicate your location. The questions that Ismail and many others ask cannot be answered correctly without knowing which Country version of the CLA we are talking about.

Going to comment here for a sec, so forgive me for venting a bit. First, I do think MB has a hit with the CLA. With that said, I don't understand why Americans put up with the lack of options for our market. Very limited compared to other markets. Just check it out and share your thoughts. My only vote is with my purchase, so I will be waiting until they expand product options. If enough of us speak out, changes would be made.

Does anybody know if there are recoding tools?

Some of the things we could do with that:
- summer closing/opening of windows with remote
- needle sweep of the gauges when ignition is turned on like on the 45 amg
-more...

Here in Canada

-I have folding mirror at engine off

-I have passenger mirror tilt to lower position I can program when reverse gear is engaged.

-Elsewhere on the globe, Adaptive Highbeam assist is available with bixenon and cornering lighting but not here in Canada: disappointed about that

The rest is just amazing, pano roof, engine power and gas economy
