I don't have a problem in Houston...GLA 4Matic
Hello I'm Jerome, just recently purchased a 2015 White/beige GLA. Not necessarily the color I wanted, but it has NAV which was the main accessory I wanted. I'm also an owner of an e46 M3, which for some reason will not start after putting in a new flywheel and clutch. After 3 1/2 months without a vehicle, I needed something similar to an SUV or hatch type vehicle ( i spend allot of time at home depot, and doing DIY stuff at home). I was looking at the GLA, X1, AUdi and Volvo. This one was in my price range and had the better looking interior IMO.
I plan on changing out or covering the wood grain on the dash, it make is look too classy and that is not what I want this vehicle to be. I know its not a 45, but I want to make it as sporty as possible. for instance it has 235R50/18 I want to go with 255r45 or 40/19. The tires just look too skinny for me. The greyish/silver color on the front bumper and rear, I'm going to paint gunmetal, the rims; until i can get the size i want, will be painted gunmetal with black calipers or black rims and another color for the calipers. I also want to change out the box air filter and get an open air one. I don't plan on messing with the ride height by lowering it.
if i cant get my M running again, then maybe a bigger turbo, inter cooler, exhaust and then maybe lower it, since it will become my new go fast vehicle, or I could trade both in and get a used 45.
I thought there would be more accessories for this vehicle, ECS, Pelican Parts, tuner... really don't have allot.
