AMGs are 6% of MB sales in the USA. That being said, traveling 2K miles a month with an eye toward other cars, I saw one (white) GLA in the greater LA area in March and 4 in Northern California since then (blue, white, white, and black). All were 250s. One was parked. Of course, I'm not counting those on the dealer lots!
I live in Southern cali. I only saw two. A white gla45 with just stock and my black brabus one. I get a lot of attention since they have never seen anything like it. They try to race it and never seen the front of it. Seen a ton of e63 and cls63 though. Also gla250's almost everyday. Saw a c63s twice.
So far in the bay, I've seen one white with black 20s night pack and one 2015 matt silver aero package (sold) in foster city. One blue silver silver trims 19in wheels in Belmont. Followed a very dusty 2015 with paper plates all black with aero package around the airport area.
I am in Carmel, CA, see two local GLA 45 from time to time. One is heavily loaded with the spoiler and other sport accessories. By driving frequently towards Palo Alto, I can't recall seen other GLA 45s. There aren't to many GLA 250s either just one or two, or many times none, for the whole 200mi round trip.
