Well, I just happened to stumble across this page when I was searching remote start for my new GLA 250. I've had it about a month now and I really like it, but I wish it had a remote start now that it's colder. That's all I want, nothing fancy, just something that would allow me to start it while I'm still in my office so it's nice and toasty when I leave. :D

Took it on a road trip from Tulsa to Dallas and the gas mileage was fantastic!

Welcome and glad to see another happy GLA owner.
The "new" conventional wisdom is not to warm up cars any more as it is better to get in the car and drive. Below is one of many articles on the subject. That said, I use the seat warmers to get toasty quickly while the car comes up to temp. Hopefully you have them in your car.

If I'm correct the new 2016 models will have the option for buyers to sign up for an upgraded Mbrace subscription and have remote start

I definitely have the seat warmers and they definitely warm up fast!

I opted to hold out for a 2016 because I REALLY wanted remote start and the website & advance literature showed ALL 2016's would have it . . .

Silly me!

Love my GLA but will likely go with a competitive brand next time.
