Here is my plan:Well I really do like the CLA but I still haven't pulled the trigger yet...but to make this decision harder...the new 2015 C-Class is just around the corner. If they weren't re-doing the C-Class then I would go with the CLA easily...but I must admit that C-Class is sweet...so here I sit....sleepless in Las Vegas...
1 Get the CLA-250 for "my wife" - done (I drive it two days a week)
2 Convince her that we should have a his and hers and that mine should be a CLA-45 - done, but I want to wait one model year, will order in January 2015
I rather pony up to an E if I want comfort. C's IMO are too mainstream (I bought a new C in 2004, they tend to get old quicker than any other series, so far the CLA still enjoys some uniqueness due to it's small size)
