I know the CLA's starting price is only $30,000, but I believe that the Xenon Headlamps should have not been offered as a stand alone option. They should have been embedded within one of the packages, for example the sport package and the premium package.

Everyone is entitled to their opinion. Obviously MB feels differently.

I have ordered for the Bi-Xenon head lights with LED tail lights. I have recently seen a video on YouTube (
) showing the Bi-Xenon's blinking when the car was parked. Can any one please confirm that its a standard in Bi-Xenon because when I asked the sales person at manhattan-mercedes she seems to be amazed and asked me.."are you sure that was a CLA and not a S-Class ?" However the guy posting the video review did confirmed it. But still would like to ask the experts.

It doesn't really blink to the naked eye. You only see it blinking on videos. I can go though a boring technical explanation as to why you see the lights blinking in videos but not in person but I won't unless you want me to.

I have the Std, I just upgraded the Running lights to LED's and What really got me liking it better is the tail light lighting looks so much cleaner.. Plus $900 savings. I figure give it two year and see what the front light look then? If I want to upgrade them or just replace bulbs with HID's?

Thanks

I don't think I've ever seen the standard lights, but the LEDs are quite good. Very bright, clean (as in not yellowed like many incandescent lights), and, based on seeing other CLAs going the other way, not blinding to the oncoming driver. I would consider getting them especially for the last point. Because lights don't just affect your visibility. If you blind the oncoming driver he's liable to swerve into you.
