this video doesn't have anything to do with Mercedes Benz.

Its just some random video someone posted about the model in their upcoming Superbowl ad, its not the MB ad.

Nope, it was released by MB. They posted it on their official youtube channel: http://www.youtube.com/user/mbusa (see under Latest)

I meant the cat daddy video, not the car wash commercial.

In any event, you should bail out of this thread, since you have no interest in the CLA.

Shouldn't you be moving to a CLA forum instead?

Sorry but I really don't like this Mercedes... the huge eyes and the ugly rear - for me it just can't even compare with the F30. I would never consider it as an option.

Don't worry. It's the Cadillac ATS killer.

No, I've been a member of this forum for 7 years, and you have what, 43 posts?

I'm not a CLA lover, or a Lexus IS fan, or a "troll".

I've been on this website for a long time, check my post count and join date. How many euro deliveries have you done?

I've got 4 under my belt.

In any event, I'm not a typical b-fest member in that I evaluate each car on its merits....and I welcome the competition...competition is good for BMW.

Audi, MB, Lexus, Acura, Infiniti etc. all bring something a little different to the table, as far as performance, reliability, technology, styling, etc...

I personally like the CLA....its a very interesting design, more so than the rehashed 3 series design. Its FWD, and small, and these are two very big strikes against it.

But they have a few memorized lines about the key features of the car...

If you asked them what a kidney grill is, or the hofmeister kink, they'd probably slap you across the face.

Sorry but does your post count justify you to be a jerk?

Oh look... People already telling each other to leave this thread because of difference of opinion, calling each other jerks and measuring their e-penis sizes ("I did over 9000 Euro Deliveries and my post count is like, a lot!")... Nice thread you have here, girls!

Sorry....misunderstood the context of your comment.

Kate Upton aside, that's one hell of a departure of an ad campaign for Mercedes Benz.

The New CLA is beautiful! Worlds nicer than their current C.. Good Job Mercedes, I look forward to seeing these on the road.

That video however was kind of lame. No where near as entertaining as the Kat Daddy youtube vid.

That might be true with a small number of drivers. However, lots of people buy BMW because they think it's a "good German car" and don't know very much about cars. Go to Los Angeles where there are lots of BMW and interview drivers as they get out of their cars. Most will not know much about cars, FWD, tires, etc.

The CLA is made in Hungary. U.S. 3 series are made in Germany and South Africa. Some are made in India but those are not imported to the U.S., at least not now.

I think it's good if Mercedes and other companies build cars almost as good or better than BMW. That keeps BMW on its toes. If not, then BMW would charge $75,000 for a 3 series. Don't laugh, they cost more than that in Singapore and Norway, though it's because of taxes.

If a middle aged person says he does not like the look of the CLA, MB probably will thank him, because it is clear to me the CLA is aimed at younger crowds, such as those who just graduated from a econo beater with a large muffler, and now have a decent job and is growing up.

I guess I'm an old guy, but I really like the looks of this new Mercedes.

Of course you can like it, I am not part of the younger crowds anymore, and I like the CLA myself because I think the style suits it's targeted market, even though I don't see myself driving one.

I think BJ likes it too, after all he started this thread. Although we each may have different reasons to like the CLA. BJ likes it probably because his young girlfriend likes it.

I have no girlfriend as that would be disrespectful to the trophy wife.

That said, the CLA will most definitely be a preferred purchase for exotic dancers across America and there's nothing but respect there.

BJ got the Limited Edition Trophy Wife Package. How could you of missed it? It's just another special edition from BMW, except BMW only made one of these. Add that to the 100,000 other special editions that BMW rolled out.
