I know , i know it's still months until an actual CLA hits the floor of a MB dealership but when and if you finally take this sexy ride home ........ what would be your first mod ???

For me I'd probably look into getting all the windows tinted ..... not too dark but perhaps 35% for a nice contrast on a Silver or White CLA !!!! 2nd mod would be to debadge the rear trunk ...... free and very easy to do !!!

i think my first mod if its available is to add the Rear Window Spoiler and second to get some colored lug nut covers to enhance the wheels and maybe even Wrap the top in Black gloss or Red or what ever assuming i dont get the sunroof option... need to see the car in person at the next Autoshow and i will Update this post... lol

I see.. Not my thing I guess ;)
You have to see one in person. I saw once a CLK320 Silver with this tint and it was great. If I get the Universe Blue, I will consider the metallic, but I have to make sure to have a top quality manufacturer Like Lumar or similar. That is one item that you can negotiate with the dealer.

If I had tinted windows then other commuters wouldn't be able to see when I flip them my finger. Grid lock traffic causes one to do some shameful things in the morning. Although I have been known to roll down my window for added effect. So that's always an option.

Not necessarily in this order... but the mods that I usually end up having to do before I'm happy are:

Exhaust, ECU/Tune, Wheels, Cold Air Intake Kit, Tint.... hardwired Valentine 1. I think that about covers it :)
Metallic window tinting, V1 and debadge.

That was one of my questions. Is tint standard on the CLA? Cuz I don't like the half half tinting. I want to black out all windows as dark as I can. I remember when I got my CRV and went to get it tinted they told me certain cars can go to certain percentage of how dark it can go. Which never made sense to me.


he he he.... but what if there is this beautiful guy/gal looking starring at your car then what will you do?
...decisions decisions...:)
hehe. just roll down the windows ;)

I too am wondering how much, if any at all, of the windows will be factory-tinted (ie. rear passenger windows, etc). Hence, I will then tint accordingly- the Texas summers take a toll on the interior (and its inhabitants)!

Otherwise, other mods will likely be:

  • trunklid deck spoiler (have to see how it looks in-person, and also look into after-market offerings/variants)
  • illuminated door-sills (likely will get down-the-road & DIY install)
  • some sort of black/urethane front-lip or bumper-cover edge trim (in-essence, garage-door weather seal)
  • rubber/synthetic trunk-mat
  • possibly wheels (will look into other MB/AMG wheels or after-market)
  • sport-grille (since I'm not going w/ the optional Sports Package)
  • splash-guards for fenders/wheel-wells (dunno if such even exist for the CLA)
  • clear-bra (never done such for my past cars, but looking back I should've)
  • black vinyl wrap/overlay of the roof (still consider such, not sure if necessary on a dark-er paint finish)
  • other non-USDM CLA features/equipment/options/accessories that are of interest & available in other markers
I don't see myself doing any bolt'on performance mods (intake/exhaust/ECU/suspension/etc) as of now.
