Thanks Revitup. I got a 2016 black GLA45 with the following options for $39,900 with only 10K miles on the odo.
It has the AMG performance seats which I really really wanted .
It does not have the pano roof that I would have liked but it wasn't a deal breaker for me.
It does have the Sport exhaust system [U21] which I am not sure is the same as AMG performance exhaust or not. I don't think it is but I am probably going to modify this anyway so this too was not a deal breaker if the price was right.
It does not have the sport suspension but I think I am ok with that since the stock one is also a pretty firm ride.
Facia Trim parts are the aluminium grey [I honestly don't care much for the options on the facia trim parts]
Running the 19 inch wheels. I will probably get another set of 19s for the winters.
It has the COMAND APS NTG5/NTG5.5 with the multimedia [i.e. navigation, media etc]. Not sure if this was optional or standard for 2016

Overall I think I did well because I was finding it real hard to get my hands on 2016's to begin with. What do you guys think?

And a question for the options gurus over here. When I looked up the VIN number on datamb.com it says that it has keyless GO however there is no start/stop button in the vehicle. Is that normal? I thought keyless go meant you don't need to stick the fob thing in to start the car. No?

Do you have lock and unlock buttons on the door handles? That's keyless go. The button to replace the key can be acquired at your dealer.

Thanks for clearing that up. It does have the buttons on the door handles. This is what happens when u take things literally [i.e. keyless GO] It should have been named Keylesss Entry

Ah . Unfortunately not . I didn't even realize the name thing . Don't think that's even possible but updated the info anyway.

Welcome again! Hope to see your mods soon.

You can also test to see if the engine on/off button works by using your fingers before heading down to your local dealer. Have the keys on you like you are driving, push into the key fob hole. You will find resistant from a little door push harder and it will open up allowing you to push a "button" to start the car. The little door will stay "open" until you put your keyfob in and pull it out.

Since you have the buttons on the door handle ...

The start button is available from your dealer. It snaps into the ignition key hole. The car recognizes your key. You can keep it in your pocket.

The battery in your key fob will need to be replaced more often. Some dealers do this for free but it is simple and cheap to do it yourself.

Some keep their key in a Faraway pouch to avoid theft by people using amplifiers.

The key includes a pop out mechanical key in an emergency if the fob battery goes dead.
