Do we pick up European Delivery at Stuttgart or at the Budapest factory ? Someone said Stuttgart. Need confirmation.
Does Mercedes intend to keep CLA45 production at 10000 a year with 2/3s coming to the United States ?
Will Back Up Camera be standard on all CLA ( all Mercedes for that matter) in 2015 ?

Thanks.

There is a thread that was created yesterday by me that mentions info about the LCD screen. The 7" LCD screen will remain a feature for the mm package. it will remain a standard feature for vehicles that do not carry the mm package.

Ask them to consider bringing the COMFORT suspension to the USA. Not everybody wants to pretend to be boy racer every single second of driving.

Tue stock suspension isn't as rough as you think. You will get a lot of stiffness only if you upgrade to the AMG Drivers Package for the cla 45amg. The cla 250 isn't suppose to be a rough ride either.

Odd I do know that the usb port works to run the iPod in the cla 250 and Amy version. You might want to check with your dealership on that one.

prdevani,
Thank you! In the US we will get some sort of option for about $600 US. It has "something" to do with the iPhone, but there has been no other info. Since I expect Merc sales people to be woefully ignorant about this car when we first get it, this sort of information is crucial when ordering a car so early in its production life.
