    Hi, New to the forum, new CLA owner.

    Looking to add a vehicle specific tow bar electrics that’ll need programming afterwards so looking for a friendly tech. Either mobile or I got to them please.

    Also considering adding CarPlay. Read a Canadian forum where several people added it - Merc dealers were offering parts / labour for $250CAD. Anyone had this done?

    Other common mods / upgrades?

    Command in Lightwater are the people you need. They are not far from the M3/M25 junction, which may seem a little too far but will be worth the effort.

    Comand are about 1 1/2 miles from J3 M3.

    PCS are another well respected indie close to Southampton - and are forum sponsors - for example see the post "Benz on the Green".

    Cole or Olly - wish either of them were close to me, I'd have no hesitation in using either! Pilotechy, just make sure you visit Benz on the Green, you won't regret it!!
