Well,

I got to see and touch a CLA "Edition 1" first hand. The car was very nice...as it had all the opition you could get on the car. Also looking at the car first hand the one thing I did not like "Neon Seats" did not look that bad on the car over the photo's.

So you are saying the seats look ok in pictures but you did not like them in person?

Where did you see the car at?

Very awesome either way!

El Chorioz,


I did like the seats in person...did not like them in the photo's. Something that was also kind of cool was, the opening in the seat back and headrest has accent lighting in it. Also the room size of the car was nice...about the same size as the C class.

Where did I see it you ask? Well, I kind of have a inside... I work at one of Mercedes Benz "VPC" Vehicle Preparation Center.

Very cool, if you can sneak us some pictures of anything we haven't seen yet I would be grateful!

Also, if anyone has question about the car I can see what I can dig up. Most of the info on the internet is on the European Models...the US models will be a little different. Two things...because of US standards the fuel tank filler will be on the pass side, not the drive side and will have marker lights on the front fender or bumper. The USA "DOG" Dealer Opition Guide is to come out Feb 25th in a few days with all the USA info. Also a couple add on items looking to come out for the car is Illuminated door sills, and rear deck spoiler.

No imagination required!!! You're correct, there are lights underneath the headrests. I hope we get that. It reminds me of the acura tsx, it had a blue interior mode light.

The lamps in the seats and the door panels are NOT standart
this must be ordered separately, it says in German: "Light and Sight package" in my order and costs € 428.40.
It contains:
Light in the seats
Light on the doors
Light on the door sills
Light in the footwell
I think the Mercedes this lighting has developed especially for you Americans!
In Germany, we read that the CLA will be sold successfully, particularly in Asia and in the U.S.
But I think the CLA will sell well in Germany
Is it possible you actually access Mercedes-Benz Deutschland - Personenwagen
where man can configure the CLA.

$428 euros is the less than $600 U.S dollars and not bad especially since it's pretty up there in the " cool " factor !! My main concern is it even being an option either here in the U.S. or N.America since we're often short changed when it comes to choices UGH !?!?
