CLA illuminated grill

anyone order the illuminated grill on the CLA? It was pretty prominent on the CLA advertising i saw during the Tour Championship this weekend.

its a $400 option that i could see selling very well if certain types of people buy the CLA like i fear...

I always like the illuminated grille, need to see it in person thought. This is something Mercedes should take to auto shows to show people if they haven't distributed them to dealerships as yet

The illuminated grill is enhanced on the TV ads, it is not near as bright, and for the short term, will turn off after 30 seconds. It is a LEGAL issue that will be fixed, but the first stars will turn off after initial illumination, in other words, they don't stay lit while driving.

In some pictures the illuminated grille looks great and in others it looks pretty gimmicky and really cheapens the look of the CLA. I think that it might look a lot better on TV and in commercials than it does on the road.

Take a look for yourself.

I remember seeing some real life photos of it on another forum.

Decided they looked a bit too gaudy on a car like this. They might work better on a E or S-Class

Don't think I'd ever spend on this.. you can aftermarket some led's (and get more brightness) if you really want it.

It's a little kitschy but I think fun (and appropriate for what the CLA is relative to other Mercedes variants). Just don't take it too seriously.
