Hi all! Just bought my GLA as my first time MB, an what a nice little car! Its a 2015, 200CDI aut. 4-matic with 83000 km. It fits right into my needs. Up here in Norway its now quite cold, an this car is super on iceroad driving. Not even once have I felt the car slipping (we'll see, I WILL provoke it 🤭
Ive got a boat trailer (summer use)with total wheight appr. 1500 kg's, and this small GLA 4-matic pulls 1800 kgs. I think that is quite uniqe.
My only fear is the usual EGR/DPF syndrome. No problems so far, but i really try to take the car for some long-runs at least once a week, to keep the doctor away.
This engine is the least powered version of the 2,2 diesel. Checked a little about tuning, and it is quite possible to tune the engine from 136 hp/300Nm to 200 hp/430Nm, but I'm not shure how this might influence the EGR/DPF function. Negative or positive?
Are also considering a total EGR/DPF delete, but I would'nt want to ruin the dpf- filter in case I would have to replace it due to encreased government control.
Does enyone know any afforable replacement downpipe for this engine on a GLA?
Nice to find a forum for my GLA!🙂
