I'm finally finished with all the mods I wanted for a night styling look: window trim, side mirrors, wheel caps, and front scoops are OEM. So here she is!

The back third of the pano roof, front lip spoiler, side sill inserts, rear diffuser, and rear spoiler are wrapped in 3M gloss black vinyl. Tint is Charcool 20% all around.

Interior mods include OEM AMG door pins and chrome pedals.

damn man, great job! Can you say how the front scoops attached? Were they just 3M or did you have to drill into the bumper?

Looks great! BTW, do you have a MB dealership in your driveway/garage?...
Haha. The MB dealership asked for a few pics as my CLA apparently turned a few heads when I pulled in. I figured I'd oblige our SA with a shot of our entire lineup we've acquired from her.

where did you get your parts! they all look awesome
I got them all from https://www.benzpartsforless.com/

I used 3M tape.

when you got the window trim parts did they come with instructions for removal/installation?
Instructions are not included with the purchase of any OEM parts. Installation of the window trim was pretty simple. Like I said, I have no experience modding cars. I would suggest reading Bushido's DIY guide if you need instructions. I'm not sure where it is but a simple search should locate it.

I was close to pulling the trigger on the black AMG 19's. But in the end, I just found the silver wheels to be the look I want. If I do switch out, I'd probably go for the directional Vossen rims.

I don't have links. I'd suggest searching the OEM parts number thread in the general form. I posted all the part numbers so you can reference it on that site in that post: http://www.mercedescla.org/forum/5-cla-general-discussion/5971-oem-part-number-products.html?highlight=part+numbers

Hey OP,
My MG when it arrives will hopefully look like yours after mods. Just wondering what made you choose MG over CC considering all the gloss wrap you have would contrast really well with white. I'm considering changing my colour and want to know what made you pick MG!

While the mods would contrast well with white, I find white to be difficult to keep clean. Secondly, white just looks like a girl's car to me. Last of all, I'm an attorney and deal with a lot of high income clients, who might view a modded CLA in a negative light (giving off that 'ricer' image). On grey, the black accents are a little more subtle and as a result don't appear to give off that same ricer vibe.

Mg looks great with all those mods. I had to flip a coin between silver and mg knowing I would do stuff like this later as well. Very nice choices.

Did you wrap the side inserts yourself? Were they easy to remove and replace?
Side inserts, rear non-pano roof, front lip, and rear diffuser were all professionally wrapped at the same time. I don't know what technique he used as I left the car in his care for a few hours.
