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...

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.

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.

Looks cool, but for $400???!
Residualize it into your lease (if that's how you got the car) and you only pay $132 (or $3.67 a month, or $0.12 daily). =)

I am definite there will be some aftermarket kits all over eBay in a few months.

So it just lights up when you are stopped? That makes it even more ridiculous.

I think the illuminated star is just weird. I agree with whoever said before that you can't take it seriously. Its hard to not take something seriously when it costs $400.

I haven't had a chance to drive my CLA yet but I was told the star stays on. I will try to get confirmation.

You were told wrong. It doesn't stay on and certainly not when the engine is on.
