CLA much superior in terms of design vs A-Class. Have compared both in real life next to each other.

BUT the C-class has noticeably superior quality than either. Again compared both side by side.

Agree totally , saw one yesterday as well and had way too many badges and looked cheaper imho than a 135i coupe.

Got a test drive on tuesday though..shall see..,

True a 135i coupe does look more classy and more expensive. I also prefer the interior and driving position of the 135i.

The A45 is a better performer though. You gotta hand it to AMG - they have done a great job.

Just drove it - exhaust note and overun was awesome - its very loud for a stock car and noticable with the windows up and aircon on.
Gearbox and awd seemed excellent.
Accelaration was ok, maybe a bit better than a stock N54 but nothing compared to the thrust of a tuned one..

But getting back into the 135i my car felt much much nicer and refined. And honestly its seems like a downgrade going from a coupe to a hatch....

Will wait for the M2 for my next test drive....

Yep, spotted a white one in Mosman, extreme boy racer image from the outside, well I suppose it is rather extreme given the specs from a 2L 4 pot.

Spotted that exact one over the weekend. I'd take a 1M over that thing any day!

Garage List
2011 BMW 135i  [0.00]
Went to the Brisbane Mercedes-Benz CLA launch last night, but they only had the CLA200. CLA45 AMG deliveries start later this month, but the CLA250 is early next year.

Good looking car. Rear seat room is a little tight for a 4 door car (especially head room - anyone over 180 will feel squashed). Interior feels ok but definitely not as good as the E/C coupe. But at this price ($55k driveaway for a CLA200) it's decent value, if you don't mind how slow the CLA200 is (0-100 8.2s). The "night package" is a nice touch, and I loved the panoramic roof.

Was told their first CLA45 AMG will arrive next week in Brisbane and start taking test drives.

And yes it's quick, but no quicker than a 135i with a tune. Heck my vert is about as quick with just a tune, and I get a foldy roof to boot! In fact I'm pretty certain I could do the same time with a few more runs.

I know mod vs standard is unfair comparison though.

Well not too unfair I'd say. I'm not sure how much more you can safely squeeze out of that little four pot. It's so highly strung already.

The A45 felt more like a tuned car than my bolt on + 135. I doubt more than 15-20 % gain (exhaust, intake, intercooler, meth and e85) without swapping turbos or modding the actual motor.

Since seeing them on the road I have really gone off them.
