So many color choices. Which to choose. Don't want to be that guy who orders the mountain grey and then see's a white one and is like FML or other way around. I know for sure the car design will be stunning but i reccomend everyone to see the colors in real life before they make a decision. Put your Opinions below of each color. These ones below i am sure of.

Night Black/Cosmos Black- I just don't like black cars.
Jupiter Red/Patagonia Red- Too Bright For Me.
Universe Blue- Nice Looking Color kinda like it, but not as much.
Magno Polar Silver- No way too hard to maintain, this is for like a indoor only vehicle.
Mountain Grey Metallic- I know people fell in love with the showroom look. But someone who has had this color knows what happens with daily use and travel, unless you want to polish it everyday it will look dull.
Northern Lights Violet- Ermmm no thank you i don't remember the last time i saw a violet car. lol.

This leaves the toss up for the two cars i have to see in real life to make a choice.
Polar Silver Metallic and Cirrus White.

I think there are both beautifull colors.. I have seen the polar A class and drove the CLA in white.
I would choose the white over the polar silver. (although I bought a Patagonia red one)

Another nice benefit of getting the White is that there's no additional cost to that color compared to the metallic paints !!

Some of the most sought-after colours in special makes/models have been offered in "purple" (Esprit, NSX, Diablo, M3, Exige, Prowler, Rolls Wraith, Challenger/Charger, etc) and now CLA.

The Northern Lights Violet CLA would look sophisticated w/ Ash leather-interior & black Ash trim, sporty w/ black leather-interior & polished aluminim-trim, and luxurious in brown leather-interior & anthracite-trim (or brown Ash trim).

I need to see how the violet would look in person with the sports package...might be interesting. For now though i am going with Red because something about a red Mercedes is so exciting :).

The thing is though. White will not look super stunning after polish and wax since it does not really shine much. But Mountain Grey Metallic will look like a $1,000,000 car after a good polish and wax.

For me it is White or red... White, grey or black has the best resale value...

However, I would say 90% i go with white. It's clearly the color that Mercedes feels show's the car the best since they use it in all the pictures right next to Designo Polar Silver(which is for like indoor cars only). It's not a coiencidence that the color used by mercedes was white for nearly all the pictures.

I am going with the Northern Lights Violet with ash (light grey) interior. After watching the video in which you can watch the car on the road in the various colors, the violet just looked very classy and different. I've been watching cars recently, and almost all of them are either white or grey . . . . I was hoping for a nice dark blue, but it's not available!

German cars have been synonymous with the color silver before any of us were born. Think of the Auto Union races of the 1930's. They were all in silver because somebody got smart and saved weight by not adding any paint. So they stripped the race cars down to their bare aluminum. Plus, just think of a 1950,s classic Mercedes gullwing. What color do you have in your head? Silver, I bet. Plus, think of a 1950's Porsche 550. What color do you have in your head? You get my point. German cars are NOT popular in silver because of the Apple corporation.

Red with Night pack looks great. I´m still set on a white for my car, white is a really good color for the CLA.
