Always get my Gap from ALA as they always price match the cheapest quote. When MB told me the cost over the phone I laughed so much - told them how much I pay and she was like don't blame you ours is well over priced.

Most dealers push these options like crazy but so far MB Grimsby have been very good and no sales patter at all, apart from the video lol.

I'll stick to the advice here and go to a specialist.

Next question, remapping....is Tricolore any good......sorry JB couldn't resist Wink
 
LMFAO!!! yes mate crack on with them, or if you decide to possibly look elsewhere then DMS would be my pointer, Carbonwurks (forum sponsor) has a reseller agreement with them and can prob now get you the best price
Now moved on to an M235i M Performance convertible DMS map 411bhp / 590nm torque

Compare the quotes from sites like GAP 123 which usually give a cheaper rate and then get ALA to match( they are slightly more expensive if you get a stand alone quotation)

May 16 AMG A45 White. Just about every option going I think. Miles better than my Golf 7R (except maybe the cruise control)

Nice thanks mate will drop Carbonwurks a PM.
Also with regards to the remap does this sort out the laggy pedal (what I experienced from the test drive) or would I need one of those pedal box thingies?

Would you recommend the AMS airbox too?

Once I've got thru the run-in period I'll be good to go.

Hi mate,

 
I can recommend a guy in Toddington, Beds who detailed my A45. I was chuffed to bits - he is very dedicated.
 
 
A couple of pics of mine from his show garage.  The detail I had was siramik. Hope this helps.

Wow that looks awesome mate, not surprised you were chuffed.

Is that Mountain Grey?

yes the AMS is a great bit of kit, we imported a load ourselves from Canada which worked out cheaper, think Acid at MSL still sells and ships them
