Hello! I'm a newbie here and I recently ordered my first MB from SoCal/MBLN. Put a fully refundable $1k down and was told it would be ready in November 2013.

CLA45 [C117] Cosmos black metallic/ brown leather w Ash trim. All the bells and whistles excluding the exterior carbon fiber trim package, which wouldn't really be noticeable on a black car. I wish there were a lighter beige (leather) interior which would be a better contrast with the black. I *might* switch it to the grey interior and if so might change the exterior to mountain grey metallic. Luckily I have some time to think about it :D

Also not too thrilled about the lack of KeylessGo. I's hard to go back once you have it!

My dealer informed me due to the late availability of the AMG Night Styling my P60 option was removed.

After reviewing the order guide I've made the following additions and subtractions:

Change exterior color paint:
from 191 - Cosmos Black
to 991 - designo Magno Polar Silver

Change leather interior:
from 555 + 804 Nut Brown Leather
to 555 + 811 Black "Red Cut" Leather

Remove:
649 - 18-Inch AMG Twin 5-Spoke Wheels
B58 - AMG Center Cap for Wheels

Add:
787 - 19-Inch 16-Spoke Alloy in Black
U21 - AMG Performance Exhaust
U70 - Red Brake Calipers

Add VPC Options:
120 - AMG Illuminated Door Sills
104 - Rear Spoiler

Basically paint from black to matte grey and the interior from brown to black:

designo magno polar silver!?!?! how do you plan on maintaining that if its a daily driver? I don't know much about matte colors but i've heard they are impossible to maintain unless its like a showcar.

I just heard I'd never need to wax it. I've never had a matte car so I didn't know it was impossible to maintain. I wonder if it's even ok to park outside for a long period of time like when I park at the airport...

Talk to the dealer. I don't think you want to store a matte car outside for extended periods. From what I've read, bird droppings and other contaminants need to be removed almost immediately in order to avoid irreparably damaging the paint.
