Looks awesome. I ordered the storm bay with 552, your car is now questioning my decision!

Side note about the exhaust note, I watched the straight pipes video on YouTube and they have a really nice exhaust clip. In Canada the exhaust sounds bloody amazing. Shift pops and bangs, crackle overrun, louder revs...

Are the spec of these exhausts different to EU? Or is PPF EU only and not in US and Canada?

I get pops/bangs, crackle etc from my car - it sounds better to me than the youtube review clips (although its not really a fair comparison). Let us know what your sounds like when you get it :)

Although the CLA/A-Sedan 35 is a prettier car, it's more expensive with a higher deposit requirement and a £6k addition cost if you want the package that includes the aerokit.
And also the dual screen dash in the Merc is horrible! Just my opinion of course but I would take the M135\M235i interior any day of the week
Yup, the Merc interior is grim. The silver plastic looks really naff, it doesn’t feel very well made (e.g. the air vents feel super flimsy). I’m not a fan of the lack of buttons either. The latest BMW interiors are nice and do a better job of mixing tech and sensible old school approach to functions with buttons!
