Build Thread CLA 220 CDI Sport (Urban) UK Model

I have owned my CLA for around 5 weeks now and have been slowly personalising it. I will add details of where I had work completed and sourced parts as I go along.

This is how the car looked when I purchased it. UK model - 220 CDI Sport, 2014.

Next is a boot tray - Mercedes Genuine Stock part - Supplied by MB of Shrewsbury
This is a great quality tray. I decided to by the MB one because of its looks.

Final interior addition is this aluminium trim around the heater controls. Purchased from Ebay China.
This didn't fit initially, it kept coming away from the plastic surround due to poor quality double sided tape. I had to remove the self adhesive tape and replace it with some 3M double sided automotive tape, which worked a treat.

Next up is a front splitter. But they are not available other than a Brabus (really expensive) or Genuine MB (to thin).

If anyone knows of any other splitters available, please let me know?

I ordered the cupholder thingie. Actually your thread reminded me I ordered it because it has been a while, I completely forgot. How long did it take you to receive yours?

Btw, I love the trim around AC and that rear vent. They didn't look convincing in ebay pictures, but when you see the whole dash like that, it starts to make sense. Would love to see large-view picture of the dash, maybe taken from the back seat?

Have you considered this?



Although with your chrome AC trim installed it may be overkill. It's one or the other I think.

My car is at the Dealers being repaired. As soon as I get it back ( probably a weeks time) I will take a photo.
