There's some good deals on the A45 AMG to be had on coast 2 coast, broadspeed, car wow etc at the moment. When i was looking the insurance was HALF the price of the M140i but the deals weren't there at the time.

Mine's the AMG SUV version GLA 45 rather than the AMG A45 slightly higher ground clearance, different lights and protection around the wheel arches etc., 381bhp, 4.3 from 0-60pmph whereas the AMG A45 does it in 4.2 so marginally quicker if you're into that sort of thing :lol:

I do like the GLA especially as you've specced with without the OTT rear wing etc.

Although I like the rear spoiler in my opinion it looks a little out of place to me apart from being too big as well.

I agree, you have a very nice GLA there! I like all the 45 AMG range ro be honest, apparently they are going to be in excess of 400bhp when the face lift comes again.

We did take considerable time with the decision to buy what will probably be almost our last car and what made it was the smooth auto box combined with take-off which I'm used to in my company car, no regrets whatsoever at this time in changing to MB.
