Hello!

Post by chrisbin » Wed Jul 29, 2020 12:20 pm

Afternoon everyone!
A bit late registering here as I purchased my 2016 CLA 45 S/B back in February! However, as my son is now trying to follow me and get his own A45 I thought it was about time!
I came from a Boxster as a result of our dog purchase - my excuse and I'm sticking to it!!
Very happy with the car as it does everything I want while also looking and sounding great. Only issue I have is the worn alcantara on the steering wheel, but I'm planning to sort that with a visit to Royal.
Son hopes to secure his A45 next week (he's coming from a 350Z) so keeping fingers crossed for that!

Welcome to the forum. Do you have any pics at all?

We have a 350z in our house that my other half owns. Great sounding car Image

Hope you’re enjoying the CLA Image

I can see the CLA & that’s lovely. Not a common spec with black on the silver rims, but I like it.

I can’t see the pic of the zee? My other half’s is a 2005 with 38k on the clock & it’s her fav colour of orange

Hopefully you can see the others now - removed the img bits and seems to work!

Interesting what you say about the CLA - thanks for positivity! I wasnt sure I wanted a black one at the time, but it was the one that had the best spec/miles/price at the time, and I'm actually very happy with the combination now I have it. As far as I know its got most of the available options - important to me were the full leather interior and pano roof.

Love the orange Z's and thats seriously low miles. We looked at a black one with orange interior when we were searching for my son's :shock: I really should be buying the car off my son as its a great example and I'm sure will start appreciating in value (its lost nothing in the year he's had it).

Quick update that will probably get me banned! :o
Deal didn't work out on son's planned A45 purchase, so he's bought an M140i instead :shock:

Got to say its a lovely car, and happy to have the opportunity to "compare and contrast"!!
