Maybe it did but with no instructions I will never know. It just might fit that though I never thought about that. In any event the CLA console looks like an exact fit per the photos. I will see next week when it arrives. I think the B250E was assembled with off the shelf parts.http://www.ebay.com/itm/2015-MERCEDES-C ... 2749.l2649

I loved the VW but it was too hard to get into for my aged body.
I am back to another 2017 Cirrus White B250E
It is around $75 more and I like it!

Well UPS says it will be delivered today. I usually get deliveries around 6PM so it sounds like a project for later this week.

Well I replaced it and it seems to work fine. The old had slightly newer firmware. but no sunglass holder.

I did a google search of removing the unit and it really helps. There is a concealed latch.

The replacement had the same hardware revision (12/26.00) but the software version was slightly older It works fine and both started with 14 so I am happy.. I suppose I could do a board transplant but why, it works!

If there is ever a dealer question once you know what you are doing it is simple to change out. The photos really helped. The latches had scrape marks so the dealer most likely forced it.

After looking at the photos I was mistaken. From the sellers photos the software is exactly the same. The others listed on eBay are lightly cheaper but the listed firmware is different. I do not know if it makes a difference but mine works fine.

GlennD,

Nice job. Best to stick with same firmware. That being said, having compromised by leasing basic B, will follow my practice of not investing in a rental car. At least for now.

It was a $100 gamble vs a $20 maybe fits sunglass holder. I may change it out at lease end but that is three years in the future. The books all show that the car has the sunglass holder and the fold down trays.II could care less about the trays but I want the sunglass holder the meantime I put the original and the removed rear headrests in a box for lease return. For sure I am not keeping the car since I will be 72 at lease end. I just might go Uber. I really do not want to be like the Santa Monica man.

Yep, at some point, car share will be thing, maybe driver less at some point.

For me, while I own two and lease one, my primary daily car is the B250e. The wagon is for longer trips and is ten years old. One of these days, I will take best offer. The roadster will just keep rolling until it only good for parts. Then I will be down to one, Uber, or car share.

The car is now just the way I like it. I have just about finished a hole less ham install. These days I will finish it soon.

I recently heard a light bulb joke. "how many retired people does it take to change a light bulb? Just one but it takes all day."

Many of my friends are checking into the retirement hotel. I figure I have one more gig before I do that as well. Four years behind you GlennD.

I used to have the work till you drop retirement plan. Then I went to work for the City of Long Beach. I put in 16 years there and then I retired. I retired at 65. With both Calpiers (2.3K and ssn (2.1K I survive quite nicely. I could not live on either but combined I live quite nicely. When I was working I made 76K. In retirement last year I made 60K. In truth I make more in retirement than when I was working. With no deductions I make a few hundred more.

Calpiers was 8% and we paid 2%. With pressure from the citizens they upped it to the full amount. At the same time they gave us a 6% raise. Since calpiers came out of untaxed income the increase was invisible until I retired. Then it upped my final salary.
