Hello from NJ

Just wanted to say a quick hello. I first learned about the CLA from the TV commercials but when I saw the AMG version at the NYIAS and the price I think I'm leaning towards that instead. I'm looking for my mid-life crisis car and this may be it.

CLA 45 AMG would be a perfect midlife crisis car

Or maybe the new 2 series M. That wouldn't be a bad option either.

Don't forget about the upcoming Audi S3

I'll love seeing the battle between the CLA45 AMG, BMW M2 & Audi S3.
Too bad it will be another year or more till all of these cars are out and ready for battle.

Only then can we see which one will be the best midlife crisis car

Got my money on the CLA45 AMG

First to market is key. If MB can generate enough excitement with the CLA45 AMG then they may take away a good amount of potential S3 an M2 customers... except for the diehard Audi and BMW owners.

welcome to the forum Tony, if you are serious about buying a CLA45AMG you better start contacting Mercedes Benz dealerships around you on putting down a deposit. CLA45 AMG's will be available by fall 2013. expect them to sell quickly, don't get left out!

Thanks for all the sudden welcomes but I've been around for nearly 2 months now. As for putting down a deposit on the AMG, as I have mentioned a couple of times before on other threads, I don't have a need to be the first on the block to have it, at least not at the expense of possible (although unlikely) buyers remorse. I would wait until after I test drive it first and then check out the offerings from BMW and Audi before I decide.

good move on waiting to drive it rather than being in a rush to be the very first to own one. at least this way you'll really know if the CLA was the right choice. Are you going to test any other vehicles?

Absolutely. I'm planning on test driving the following: Acura TL SH-AWD with 6-speed manual transmission, Audi A6, BMW 5-series and M135i and Audi's equivalent when they come out, Lexus ES Hybrid, Infinity Q35 when it comes out, Toyota Avalon Hybrid, and the Honda Accord Touring. I've got a lot of driving to do.
