Hello everyone,

This is my first post in the forum and I will also be the future owner of a white 2016 GLA 45 AMG which I will be receiving in the next few days. As you can imagine I am very very excited.

Anyway, the real reason for my post is to ask for advice on the following:

I am planning to install a few bits and pieces to make the car look even nicer. I am changing the stock mirror caps for black caps with the edition 1 red stripe.

I am also planning to install the red tape on the grill just as the Edition 1. This is however where it gets complicated… I’ve done my research on the Forum and Google and cant seem to find after market kits for the red tape nor an original Mercedes benz part. I was thinking about buying 3m Car Wrap, cut it and install it that way? Do any of you guys have any suggestions on how to do this?

Thanks for your help,

Christian

Brilliant, thanks so much for the info.

Can´t seem to find the grill stickers online. Any idea of where this can be bought? My dealer is not very helpful on getting after market bits for my car...

Thanks,

Christian

Hey Baby,
its all about the vernacular.

You are looking for a "vinyl graphics package" which you would
'Apply'
;)

I bought a bit of Petronas green, and a guess on that blue accent, someday I plan to wrap the wrailz with some F1 AMG car character showing.

For now, I did the end plate on one side in body color, marinating on how much I like it before I do the other side/use a touch of gun on the corners, so its a proper fit.
whaddya think about that?

Oh wow! You're really quite the domain expert on Mercedes Benz buddy - yes its truly about the "vernacular"!

OK confession: i got a gray ladies type car GLA 250 and i wanna make it look just like a GLA AMG 45.

could you please share:

1.what the best size of rims would look like for the GLA ? will the red tyre stripes wear off?

2.i got the AMG logo (here) with the letters all attached as i felt honestly looked better than 3 seperate A M G letters.

3. is there a "spoiler" that looks the part for AMG 45s? would the originals all use the carbon fibre look?

thanks so much ...genuinely appreciate your guidance.

I'm going with the Matte black AMG logo, 3 pointed star and matte black GLA 45 logos. I'm leaving out 4 MATIC as i reckon it's a bit of an overkill - it just makes my rear look too fussy.... know what i mean? ;)
