The non leather Recaro I want at $2250 is flat out not available at this time in the US ( found out at this forum they are standard on Australian CLA45s.)Anyone hear that this will delay the delivery till Jan-Feb 14? I just got a call from my Rep and he said the seats will push back my date, but I can't imagine spending 60k with out getting these seats...
811 is the standard seat with black leather and red stitching. Thought we were told it is $1500 just like all other leather choices.I just saw the dealer invoice for a 45 arriving in November and it has the 811 leather black/red cut for $2250 without the $1500 upcharge. Perhaps MB is letting dealers order the leather at the faux leather price to avoid delays and encourage sales?
811 is the code for the black leather with the red cut stitching. That's a $1500 option along with the MB tex stitched dash and door inserts. 555 is the code for the Recaro AMG Performance seat and that's $2250. So the very lovely 555 seats with red cut leather ( 555 + 811) will run $2250 + 1500 = $3750. And to have it, you must order P01 Premium 1 Package which is another $2200. So if you already planned on ordering the Premium 1 package, then you are only paying $3750 for the red cut leather Recaro AMG Performance seats. Since I don't want the over price, mostly useless Premium Package, I can in theory order the 555 AMG seats with 651 MB Tex/DINAMICA insert for $2250. This, unfortunately, is not available at this time without leather. The MB Tex 555 AMG seats appears to be standard on all CLA45 except for North America and that may be why there are not enough to go around. Your dealer that ordered the 555 + 811 + P01 has added $2250 + $1500 + $2200 = $5950 to the price of his car. I thought about but decided against it. My order is still GREEN on the StarNet so I can still change my mind but I think not.According to the ordering guide the 811 is the performance Recaro seats in real leather with black/red trim. Check the guide if you don't believe me. In addition, the dealer ordered his 45 "all the way" with the performance real leather black/red seats.
What I am saying is that it appears you can pay $2250 and get the 555-651 performance seats but in real, genuine leather . Why would you want MB-tex when you can have leather for a few hundred bucks more?
555+811 is not $2250Dude. The dealer invoice has 555-811 for $2250. $2250, NOT $3750. What is it going to take for you to believe me? Would you like me to email you a copy of the invoice? LOL. True though, you still have to order the premium package to get these.
I am staring at the dealer invoice. It shows very clearly, beyond a shadow of a doubt, without any equivocation, that 555-811 is $2250. There is no other charge. I'm not sure how much clearer I can make that, guys. Perhaps this dealer got a good deal, or knew someone at the factory, or there is some other reason for this.555+811 is not $2250
in the order guide, its $2250 for mbtex recaro's - it wouldn't be the same for leather recaro's...
That would have been the very first option I check if it is only $2250 as well.On page 28 of the US dealer ordering guide
555 + 811 option
In addition to all leather interiors requiring P1
The notes read:
Leather Interior 811 must have 396pkg:
P39 - Exclusive Package
880 - IR Remote summer / open close on driver door
YO5 - red seat belts
There is no reference to the cost of this package
BTW if the cost of this combo is $2250 I'm getting it :wink:
I thought we sort of came to a conclusion ( ? DavidR) that 811 red cut is just another choice that costs $1500 on standard seats same as black 801 or brown or grey and $3750 on the AMG Performance seats. I thought it is reasonable to think it is the same price as you get nothing more other than the stitching and the hideous RED seatbelt. Red cut is what you get on the standard 651 including the red seat belt, red stitching ( no dash or door top ) on center arm rest, door pull and steering wheel.im not even talking about 2250+p1 tho. or even the exclusive pack
the 555+811 are 2250+1500 = 3750 just like all of the other leather recaro's( read order guide) . why would "red cut" leather, (sounds extravagant) , be cheaper then any other leather seat? why would it ever be the the same price as NON leather recaros?
merc isnt giving away leather for free
the red cut leather ones are no doubt more money than the 2250 mbtex ones
in fact, they are 3750 at the MINIMUM(possibly more)
Sent from my SCH-I545 using Mercedes CLA Forum mobile app
And no P01 ? OK, then I will do the same and see what happens as well.I have to agree with Doc1
I just received an email from my dealer which states there is no charge for 811 - red cut leather with 555
I told him to modify my order and add these options if this is legit
We'll see what happens ?????
With the almost obligatory multimedia package for the back up camera, I am pushing up against 60k.I think PO1 is required but I'm getting that anyway
It's the Recaro seats I really want - Mercedes is making this really difficult
