The colour type should be on a sticker on your drivers door which will help get the paint code. It's a tyre pressure monitor system that indicates when your tyres need more air in them, not sure if all a classes have this as I only really know about the A45's. Yep buy piece by piece from eBay that way it will keep the cost down.

Okay are they not good? I can't find black amg alloys with tyres for cheaper?? I think I'm best starting with alloys and vinyl wrapping to ease me into this lol. What about the lights?

Id personally go for those alloys, I have them on my A45 although I painted mine grey and think the design looks amazing. gives you a brief idea of how they would look on your car if you were to choose them.

Those do look like std A45 alloys but in black difficult to compare with the ones in the eBay link, 
ask the guy selling for the MB part no off the back something like A176******* .

If they're A45 alloys they're 8J with ET48 offset so will fill the your arches better, they should have 235/40 x 18's on

price is alright as a new wheel alone is an eye watering £580 from MB

the eBay ones are 7.5J with ET52 so a bit narrower


Your car colour is called Universe Blue, not many about, agreed not sure

The belt line (chrome thingy's ) on the doors just clip off and easy to wrap or paint

This is really helpful guys I can't thank you enough. I'm going to sort alloys and wrapping the roof first. Then sort the kit pieces. One of my mates said although these alloys will fit it'll make the drive worse especially on corners if I don't sort breaks etc? Is that right?

a45 look-a-like will cost you a small fortune,,i did my base golf tdi to look like a bluemotion with the vw bodykit,by the time you gather all the parts + wheels+paint+fitting,i can guarantee the colour wont match and you will end up blowing in the wings and 1/4 to match,otherwise everytime you see your car it will smack you in the face that i doesnt match,even when you use the right colour code n shade,plus youl need the under bumper tray on the front,,why not,privacy the back windows,diamond grille upgrade,rear twin exhaust diffuser upgrade,do the wheels,theres plenty on e-bay,see crazy steve on here for a pair of a-class owners club small 1/4 widows decals,in petronas green,petronas green strip on the rear diffuser,and wrap the strip in petronas green on the front,smart looking,yet wont break the bank either,i did my white a180 cdi in red,just a thought,good luck with what you decide on,oh and post plenty of piccys Thumbs Up
