Hi there,

So i have an AMG Line Mercedes A Class A180d on order, should be ready to collect by late March 2018. I didn't order the night package at the time because they couldn't find one around to bring to the garage. Is there any chance i could add the night package after lets say for instance a month or 2 down the line. Also how much would it cost, as i know labour will have to be factored into the standard £595 for the add-on.

New around here so might not have posted in the right area.

Any help will be greatly appreciated :)

Night Edition means removal of chrome exterior trim, and high gloss black exterior mirror scalps and front & rear bumper lips. It’s just trim.

Yes but I would be surprised if the dealer won't want considerably more than £595 to retrofit.:)

Oh of that I have no doubt. I’m unsure as to how bumper trim is attached. If it’s trim clips then it’s a 5 minute job for you.

Has the car been built yet?

If not, talk to the dealer to get a spec change.

Retro fit will be exorbitant cost wise.

You could vinyl wrap the trim later.

The original owner of our CL spent £165k but didn't want the fridge option at £850. Second owner asked the price of a retrofit and it came in at several thousands. The cost of a retrofit unless you can do it yourself is often a bit silly.

That’s what I don’t understand. Why spend that much then not fit really useful options?

I’ve been keeping my eyes on a few cars of late. How few there are with memory seats and COMAND in cars of £50k+ astounds me.

Oh nothing for the moment. I have to wait until later in the year. Nothing you don’t already know about!

I am pretty sure the OP is too late now to change it. Luckily for him ;)

Got to say that has got to be one of THE most useless money wasting options and even cheapens the car imo.
“It wont make it go any faster”
Has the OP got Comand, or a reversing camera? Nappa Leather, ILS with bi Xenons? Stereo upgrade? Memory seats I.e. practical, useful things that help you everyday.
Or better still put the cash towards a bigger engine.
But then its his money.

It’s an easy way to add value for the retailer. Black Editions are mega.

Many thanks for all of your replies, any chance it might be cheaper to buy some (e.g Alutec black alloys) and have those fitted. Set of 17" looking at around £425, with fitting on top of that.

Any ideas?

Cars are normally spec locked about 2 weeks before delivery, so up to that point you can change things like this. I added ventilated seats to mine about three weeks before delivery to avoid a sweaty back. Best part was they changes the spec but forgot to charge me the extra!!
