Hi all. Thought I'd finally pop back in after 13 months/19k hard-driven miles of ownership and share some photos I've taken of my pride and joy. Loads more images on the way, but here are some teasers for the time being. Info on the car below. :)

2015 GLA45 AMG, ordered the week they went on sale.
All AMG options save for a couple safety components/carbon fiber parts.
Brown leather interior with aluminum trim and Recaro bucket seats.

- 20" HRE FlowForm FF15 in IPA (satin bronze) finish
- Calipers resprayed to Porsche Mexico Blue
- Sits on Pirelli P ZERO 265/35s
- Custom brushed satin bronze vinyl accents
- Dechromed (satin/gloss black vinyl) grille, rear chrome element
- Full legal tint on all windows
- Rear tail lamps sprayed
- HG Motorsports GLA45 Intake
- Exhaust coming next...

Happy to answer any questions.

Cheers. :)

Any rubbing issues with the 265 35 20s?
Nope, nothing that I've noticed, and I've had this setup for nine months now under a variety of different loads and driving conditions.

Correct; stock AMG suspension. Tires sit flush to the body and it looks that much more menacing. 10/10, would recommend. :D

Love the de-chromed front grille! Another excuse to do that too!

And the photos... WOW!

What did you spray the tail lights with? They look great!
I entrusted a highly-recommended body shop to spray the tail lamps, so I'm not exactly certain what their mix was. But it's stood the test of time nearly a year later, no fading or damage.

Blacking out the grille was one of the best upgrades I made, to be honest. For the look that I was hoping to achieve, the front was simply too busy in stock-form. Dropping all of the satin/polished chrome to the background helped tremendously.

And thank you! :)

Wow..these are incredible
Thanks so much! I'm glad you enjoy my work. :)
