What does everyone think of black mirrors on a white car? See pictures below for example:

I am not a huge fan of black mirrors. Our cars are pretty narrow and the body colored mirrors makes it look a little wider. However if you intend to black out your windows with tint then I think black mirrors may blend in better.

Question: for the front lip, does it come off ? I'm planning to wrap that as well
The side skirts and front lip only comes off for the cla45. For the 250 model you will have to wrap it while still attached to the bumper

What do you guys think of black rims? I really like the way my standard AMG rims look... Maybe I'll have them professionally painted black. Opinions?

If they weren't the 18's and had the big red caliper, I'd say yes to the above. However, that isn't the case.

In black they will look very aggressive try a semi gloss or matte finish. I saw a license plate from Virginia so I can't recommend anyone over there for a good wheel paint job on your AMG wheels. If you plan to drive to Chicago I recommend fluid motor union, they will do the job in one day and they can recommend a finish that looks good. They are ADV 1 distributors so you can play around with the wheel color based on wheels they have in stock and find out what works for your individual taste. One thing is for sure, your car looks distinguished and personalized. One recommendation, once you are done with the Goodyear eagle tires get a set of potenzas or another tire that gives you more shoulder, that will enhance the stance and better protect the week paint job.

Once I'm done with these tires would you suggest I get normal tires instead of run flats for a smoother ride? Or is that dangerous since cla doesn't have a spare

No panoramic sunroof or premium package? How do you like the stock audio?
