Since the CLA I'm picking up tomorrow has it, my vote is Yay.

Yay, and to take it over the top make sure to include the illuminated star...ha, ha...I did. Let the douchiness begin!

I am not a fan of the diamond grille and I don't like the illuminated grille either. It just reminds me of tasteless street racing cars. An illuminated three-point start is no better than underbody lighting in my mind.

Totally agree with you...and that's why I am having it installed. The CLA, in itself, is a rather non-traditional Mercedes (read for a new audience--rice rocketeers unite!). On any of my other cars I would never consider it. Just like the white walls I have on my 1972 600. I would never do that on my other Mercedes. Nor would I put racing mufflers on anything other than my Porsches--too loud for a non-AMG MB.

I agree with you on the illuminated grille but disagree on the Diamond grille. I think the diamond grille looks clean and looks amazing on the CLA, illuminated just looks tacky

I think it looks great on primary colors like the red/purple and blue. It also looks alright on the White. However on the silver, white, and gray, I'm not so sure I like it quite as much. It lacks contrast on the lighter paints.

It's a brand new Mercedes, with a great new look. Of course I'm getting the diamond grill. It positively makes the car special!
