Hey mate, I paid 1000 deposit to my local dealer as well, and I just crossed my fingers for more details in late June or July....my dealer told it won't be here until like Nov, but I think he is just tricking me because he wants me to order the A 250. Since US is having the car in September, I assume it will be roughly same time in Australia, so I guess all details can be out at latest in Aug?hey Steve, Great news on the 250 mate. Its going to be a screamer of a car for both of us.
Late June? Sounds good. Any reason that date you think we will know more?
Did you just pay the $1000 to register interest or full deposit?
So excited. Do you think we will get our cars late 2013? is 45 and 250 same release time?
Just placed my refundable deposit for a white CLA45 AMG with 19" black AMG wheels and "aero package" (exterior carbon fibre detailing). This is based on the A45 AMG optional extras and is NOT CONFIRMED for the CLA, however I have a feeling it'll be the same.
Expected sale date is 1st of October.
Since CLA 250 can't come the same time as CLA 200 and 45 AMG, I am thinking of CLA 45 AMG...but not sure how much it will be? Do you have some clue? If it is way too expensive, I guess I have to go to CLA 200....:sad:
A mate of mine works at Merc. Its hard for anyone to say at the moment but he just did up a A45 with 2 of 3 options and it was $82,000 drive away. He and most people are predicting the CLA45 to be $5000 - $10000 more than the A so hopefully early to mid $90,000s mate. 0.1 second slower than a $180,000 C63 and better on fuel haha. Im sold.
Just wish it was coming tomorrow - hard to wait
Thanks Eddy. My dealer told me CLA will be 7k more than A class. I guess they won't let all details exposed until these EOFY promotion sales over. Your mate works in Merc? Can he give you some extra discount or so? Can I have a quote from him as well? haha!
We should have a group purchase as well like US guys so that we man be benefit some more!
