Yay! Finally, it's been 5 months and 12 days since I locked in my GLA order and tomorrow I get to take delivery!

I'll take as many photos and post them up after I've gone for a few spins :D

Awesome, glad to know you'll finally be getting it.

Have you started shopping around for accessories?
Some people are so on top of that stuff that they acquire them before even taking delivery of the car!

Paint protection should be something to consider if you haven't already.

The configurations of the GLA's here in Australia are a little different to what I've been reading on the forums as there are very minimal options available to us. I've taken a look at the MB Australia website and listed what is included as standard here in Australia and what I optioned in.

Australian GLA 250 4Matic
Included Packages:
- Memory Package
- Off-Road Engineering Package
- Mirror Package
- Urban Package
- Light & Sight Package
- Seat Comfort Package
- Stowage Space Package
- Load Compartment Package
- Alarm Package
- Seat Enhancement

Optioned Packages:
- AMG Line
- COMAND Online

The only remaining package, which I didn't option is the Driving Assistance Package.

I've also since removed all the dealership stickers, replaced the license plate frames to just plain black and ordered the console storage bin and metal door pins.

Looks like you also have the AMG Night Styling Package, really nice with the black paint.

I just checked the Mercedes-Benz Australia website again and it looks like when you option in the "AMG Line", the "AMG Exclusive Package" and "Night Package" are added.

Good pickup! I'll add it to my previous comment.

ebilchicken…
Can you translate what the packages come with…the details. Reason I ask is that many of these packages are not in the US spec GLAs and I just curious.
Thanks

I'm assuming the 'AMG Line' package lowers the standard GLA250 as low as the 45? I know my GLA250 sits MUCH higher than yours. I have not seen that option in the USA.

Yup! Here in Australia the AMG Line lowers the car with the sports suspension.

"Lowered sports suspension (-15mm front, -15mm rear)"

It is interesting how Mercedes packages options for different countries. US spec GLA have less options, but more "standard" ones that are options in non US spec vehicles.

Also, the lowering heights differ… the 'AMG Line' in Australian cars is about .6" lowered and a US GLA45 is about 1.5" lowered as compared to the GLA250. Good reason to think carefully about taking a GLA45 off roading…ain't no rock climber for sure :D
