Firstly, Hey everyone!
I'm new here and have already found a heap of these threads to be an awesome help.

My 2020 CLA200 c118 should arrive early next week, i've got a bit excited and purchased a panamerica grille for it and also a 45s style rear diffuser.

I know the grille install requires front bumper removal. has anyone removed it before or got any tips for this?
Same question for the diffusor swap over.

thanksssss

Grille from MARS PERFORMANCE australia

Rear diffuser, I originally wanted the OEM type from Germany but could not get it shipped here, so I purchased from aliexpress

I've purchased and installed both the panamerica grille and the 45 style rear diffuser on my 2015 sport, both through Mars Performance.
Both installs were quite simple, but in saying that I'm an ex mechanic so I'm used to tinkering. Only took about 40 mins to do the diffuser and maybe just over an hour to do the grille. I painted the silver rad support behind the grille black too otherwise it would be quite noticeable through the grille.
Any further questions, feel free to ask!

Hey all,
-

Panamerica Grille on
  • 20" wheels on and rim blacked out
  • had a crack at a chrome delete on the chrome window trim by wrapping it in gloss black, turned out well.
  • also de-badged the CLA200 badge and waiting on rear diffuser to arrive which will be my last exterior upgrade :)

Hey @asco !

Nice looking CLA!

I'm about to attempt to do a chrome delete with some gloss black vinyl too. I bought 3m gloss black vinyl marketed for chrome deletes. It comes in a roll and it looks like a roll of tape. Is this what you used? Did it take you too long?

Only reason I ask is because I got a quote for a chrome delete ($750 usd) and then a quote for just my roof (really tiny because of the sunroof) and that one was $300 usd. I've been burned with wrap jobs before so I decided to get my own stuff.

I failed miserably at wrapping my roof with a piece ov vinyl I bought. I am not discouraged though because my arm is (and was when I attempted) in a brace due to distal bicep tendon surgery. Anyway, it comes off on January 5th, so I'll attempt it again sometime soon.

Let me know if you have any feedback or tips!
