New to MB's and New to Forum

Hi all. I just purchased my first Mercedes Benz this past weekend and I am super pumped!!! Its a 2015 GLA 250 4matic. Since I live on Long Island, NY... Ive already gotten to test it in the snow and am I impressed!

I'm looking to learn more about the car that I haven't already learned from the dealership, as well as modifications and improvements that I can make.

And just to give you all a little more personal info... I'm a husband, a father to a 1yr old boy, and my allegiance to the New York Mets can be considered an obsession.

I'm looking forward to getting to know everyone here!

Thanks guys! So far so good!

I cam out of a VW 2.0 TDI Sportwagon. With the settlement I was in the market for a new vehicle, but was very happy with what I was in. Now that I have driven it for 2 days I am not thinking about my TDI at all.

Quick (and probably dumb) question. Im looking at changing the grill from stock to the AMG style. I'm seeing x156 come up when looking at my options.... Is that the identification that it will fit my car?

I'm not sure I attached it correctly but here is a photo of my new GLA the day I got it. I will clean it back up and post some better shots in a couple days when the weather permits it. While the snow had ended, rain is coming tomorrow

Either that picture posted sideways, or the 4matic traction is really awesome! LOL!
