    Mine ordered one already - should have it in the next couple of weeks or so. base model with just a couple of options, I don't think it's worth loading this car otherwise you might just as well step up to a C class instead, the price point is quite attractive and leases are great with the high residual.

    Car looks great although small in my preference. I've been seeing them on the road quite a bit. I'll have to definitely see a CLA45 AMG in person sometime next week. Pics don't do it justice!

    Just picked a 45 up last Tuesday. Here's my thoughts:

    Exterior.... I picked the car up and hated looking at it. The silver trim against white paint and chrome window trim almost killed it for me. I tore the car apart immediately the entire week to paint most everything gloss black. The only thing I can't stand about new Mercedes.... The amber reflectors in the headlamps.... Fvck, just stop. I spent all day Friday removing the amber from the headlights I finally got down to driving the car.

    First 200 miles recap... It's slow, but not as you would assume. I just find it sluggish off the line, which is acceptable for a 2.0L car running 26 pounds of boost. In traffic the car is extremely responsive. Very fun, nimble and quick.

    Lauch control is pretty bad ass. I like the sequence of it. A pretty cool contrast to the GTR and much more intuitive.

    It handles great, and beating on it over the weekend I have really come to enjoy the car. This particular one has the AMG sport suspension but will be ditched for KW Coilovers ASAP. The ride height alone is unbearable.... It sits in the garage next to my girlfriends JK that has a 4" lift and I'm almost certain they have the same ground clearance....

    The interior, holy shit Mercedes nailed it. Optioned with upgraded just about everything. Red cut sport seats, carbon, stitched dash, alcantara steering wheel. I'm impressed. GTR, take notes, you keep raising the cost of a 7 year old platform car that is ultimately loosing it's appeal and this one costing 40k less has me pondering...

    The exhaust note sounds awful unless you're up-shifting at full throttle where it belches a good bit.... I'll fix that.

    Everything else said, it's a Mercedes AMG. It's a great contrast to other cars I have owned and driven and really does serve a purpose, especially at the price point it is offered at.
