While out walking yesterday with the mademoiselle I came across the first GLA45 I have seen in the wild. Lo and behold it was parked next to a new Ford Focus, the Focus was taller...

the mademoiselle, lol
yes it comes into its own as the g forces and speedometer climbs
the battleaxe has a gti and it sits higher which is nice for visibility but dam if it doesnt feel tippy in the turns

exactly, but in comparison the gla 45 corners more flatly and much more neutrally, to be fair hers is a mkV so no brake vectoring but still the gla you sit low

You'll be even more surprised once tuners get their hands on it and start dropping thousands on suspension.

The GLA45 is going to be an AMAZING track car... I know they've already released several pro-comp-style coilover kits for the CLA45, so I'm sure the GLA45 kits will be next.

It does look like it could be a very cool track car. I could also see it being a really cool rally style car too. How many of you are planning to take the GLA to the track once you get your hands on it?

i think there is a kw variant 3 out for it. What does that do for it? I was thinking less squat on acceleration and maybe tracks straighter through high speed bumps. What would be really sweet is on the fly damping adjust for a more dr jekyl and mr hyde effect, rather than having to go to each corner with a wrench

Tein has the EDFC system, however, they primarily create these parts for JDM spec cars...
