Hi! Its my first post here and Im honestly so excited! Im about to pull the trigger on a 2016 CLA 4Matic with the Sport Plus Pkg and all those other cool feature's. I used to own a 2009 MB CLK 350 but I got rid of it 4 years ago for my 2015 Kia Optima SX Turbo (which I love) because it started to become a money pit and as a college student at the time I couldn't deal with the constant issues. I test drove the CLA yesterday and I immediately fell in love! So needless to say I'll be back with my new CLA very soon. I cannot contain my excitement at the moment, I originally want a C-Class (but my parents have 2, a C400 and a C63) but the CLA seems like a better fit for me...It feels so good to soon be back in my own MB. The CLA is in Mountain Grey Metallic and its a beaut. Although my Optima does have a bunch of features that the CLA doesn't have (like Power Folding Mirrors which is something I really wanted) but I (think) I'll be fine with out it.....even though I think its stupid that every other MB has power folding mirrors except the CLA. Anyways enough rambling! I can't wait to get my CLA!

go for it dude ! the 117 CLA is an under-rated german driver. especially optioned out correctly.
i just bought the same year and spec. i was looking for grey too, wound up with silver.
what i like is this era is just enough tech without an overload. i like the clean interior too.
much better than the newest or bigger benz models that look like bordellos.

Welcome back to the family! Remember to enjoy the Mighty Gap, by far the biggest selling point for our vehicles.

You can technically retrofit the power folding mirrors. Its an option/standard? in non US trims. So the part exists. Actually, I think most Benz from that 2011-2017ish period dont have power folding mirrors. I know my fathers 2012 CLS550 didn't either and that was a $90k spec'd car back then.

Thanks guys for your replies! Sadly, I won’t be getting the CLA that I was interested in (they didn’t give the deal my dad & I wanted) so I’m still shopping but I’ll hopefully be in a new car by Thanksgiving!
