Just ordered a White GLA 250 AMG Line with a few extra's (got the HK speakers for free) - coming April.
MBinformedme the latestmodelsall come with standard fitoff-roadcomfortsuspension which suits me just fine (roads around here are rough and wanted the extra clearance).
Think previously the AMG Line received the lowered sports suspension? (or was added as a no cost option in some cases?). Either wayi'm sure this has been mentioned somewhere onherealready.
Anyhow, thought to pop on and say hi + read up on all yourexperiences whilst I'm waiting!
Lot's to get through

I ordered end of Dec. They mentioned about having 4 slots available to me at the factory for the build and a 12 - 14 week wait. But this ties up with the new 15 plates, so it kind of makes sense.
Wonder if they'll make you wait until then too?

Welcome to the forum. I too have the GLA250 AMG line and I'm sure you won't be disappointed. It may not be an AMG45 but it's still a pocket-rocket when you drive it aggressively ;) ...it also does around 40mpg on long (fast) runs, which is impressive for the power it has :)

Bed it in first, or give it a good thrashing?

Talking about it makes me want it even more... Roll on April!

Speaking as an engineer, bed it in.
Speaking as a racing driver, thrash it.
Giving a balanced answer: take it easy for the first 1,000 miles, then thrash it

I've now booked off the week of delivery to get those miles on quick! Who's up for a convoy?

Popped in to MB - 3 weeks and counting.
They want it in my hands before the months out to get it in the books for this TAX year.
Can't wait!

Hopefully we can keep you entertained for the three weeks before you disappear for the week when you collect it

Heading over to Betws y Coed (was there a couple of weekends back for the zip-ling) to hit the mountain pass. Nice drive over there - think Roy's not too far away.
Assuming everything is okay
