This is my first "luxury" vehicle. Have only owned American made vehicles up to this point. I figured seeing that I'm based in Germany, I may as well get one. Test drove the new 3-series BMW (very nice) and the Audi A5 (also nice) but fell in love with the CLA. I've only driven the 250 as they didn't have the 45 AMG on hand so hopefully I won't be disappointed. The dealer anticipate delivery early next year for the 45s and late this year for the 250s. It's a wait but think it'll be worth it.Welcome sadiojr! Have you owned a Mercedes before, if so what's your car history?
