Hi my name is John I live in the UK and like all of you love the CLA which will be my next car ,In the UK we can only get the 180 petrol or the 220 diesel at the moment

I currently drive a C CLASS 125 edition which is now 2 years old I have had from new it's my 2nd merc

It's been very interesting on this forum reading all your thoughts on the CLA

Kind regards John ( jonnymerc ) :)

Welcome to the forum John! Some of us like yourself have owned several Mercs, while others are brand new to the marque with this entry-level Benz. I'm looking forward to seeing the community grow with all of the newcomers. There should be many C-Class owners like yourself joining us.

Thanks HermanE320
For your kind welcome like you I feel this forum will grow and grow but in the UK there is a lot of negativity for the CLA

They say it looks too bulky at the front end and the wheels don't fill the arches of course I disagree

Nice. I've never driven in the UK, are diesel stations easy to find, and how much per gallon (liter?)

Every petrol station in the UK sells diesel Joe diesel cars are very popular in the UK not to sure on price I have never had a diesel always petrol

I think petrol and diesel prices are pretty much the same in the UK now just a few years ago diesel was always much cheaper than petrol

Lucky you.. a lot of stations around here don't offer diesel, so it's hard to get.. although it is becoming more common!

What color were you thinking for your CLA?

I had my C CLASS serviced 2 weeks ago , just happened to ask the sales woman do you have the new CLA

She went off to find out after a while she came back yes we have the 2 models round the back do you want to have a look

I said you bet , they were both in mountain grey the 220 AMG SPORT. Looked fantastic with the black and silver AMG wheels

So to answer your question Joe mountain grey

Wow.. nice deal..

I can't believe they're giving you a car for a day for free. Do they come with you or is it just a free comp deal?

Was she cute? :)

Hi Joe no they don't come with you , I think it's something they do , I have a very good relationship with my Benz dealership and I think they do this for some customers I would imagine they see as a good business deal hoping I sign on the dotted line when I bring it back

Yes she is very cute

True, true....

Well, it's great to have ou aboard! When are you thinking of going to the dealership, we'd love pics of the vehicle (not the woman!) speaking for myself of course.
