My release date was 08-08-2014 for my AMG.
Your car is a totally different animal than any of the other GLA's out there, including most 2015's.
You can look up
for car play, if I recall correctly, you can find out your MOST version via the engineering menu of the GLA, which you can search online and here easily for how to get into the menu. I am pretty sure you are NTG4.5 though, I think that is what I am. (I don't think I am NTG4.3....)
There are tons of other options you will have no access to, but for the most part will be transparent to you. For example, your car security is on the FBS3 system (if you want a spare key the dealership sells them cheap), which you can tell right away by whether your car has Keyless GO or not. since your car has every option available at that time, you probably have no pushbutton start, and no passive entry. The option code is 805 with 055, which you probably don't have (I certainly don't have!)
Which really only matters if you are looking for the baseline control structure in the car to make keyless go work. If you are happy with the key, it's moot.
If you are looking at control system mods (like remote start) Your car is officially a 2014, because of FBS3.
If you are like me and want to install a stereo, the best place to intercept the COMMAND system is through the wire harness under the passenger side brake light (this is also where the "clean" ground is in the car). You can tap into all 8 speakers from the harness at this location with plenty of room to manage the harnessing.
I have a similar tune and similar intake with the Alpha air filters. You will not be disappointed with that decision. I do plan to dyno the car but have not taken the time to do so yet. But should be north of 400 HP, which is quite excessive for a 4 piston car.
You'll find the transmission a little quirky, being a DCT, and Mercedes seems to have managed the throttle/power delivery at low RPM's in an unexpected way, but the charms of the car make it fairly easy to look past the foibles, particularly when you find yourself on a curvy road and not dipping under 3k RPM anyways.
