Just thought I'd pass along some info from my CLA45 build. The carbon fiber trim option mentioned in many of the videos appears to be priced out at $2,850. The code is H73.

I've been debating keeping this option, all I really want is the front lip and rear diffuser. Anybody have any idea if merc usually sells individual parts of packages after release? Or how long it takes for aftermarket parts to start getting made for new models?

I've heard that the price of the carbon fiber package you're referencing is for the interior only. My dealer thought it might include the exterior bits but evidently there are trim packages in Europe for the CLA models (eg, nightshade package?) that cover the external bits. At this point, my biggest question stems from this issue...what the heck is included in the base CLA45 and what does the options list look like?! I just cant seem to get a consistent answer. I know, patience is a virtue, but enquiring minds still want to know. :)

do you think that they will have an Aftermarket Dash for INTERIOR? its 2500+13% tax here in Ontario, Canada. On the high side.....but looks so sick. I also don't mind the included Aluminum Dash at all....which makes it hard to justify 3000$ almost on a ....piece of carbon fibre that might really just be ....plastic? lol

Shattering a carbon fiber lip will definitely ruin more than a weekend if you accidently scrape it.
I am going to try vinyl carbon fiber covering it. It is just for aesthetics any how.

I think the vinyl starts pretty cheap and the pieces appear fairly easy to get to.
