Hey Guys,



I am new here, just purchased a small A200 Turbo, after now driving it for several weeks I am a little bit hesitant with "spirited driving" aspects of the car. I feel that although for a car of such small stature produces a decent amount of grunt, however, I always feel that the body roll and general handling seem to be really spongy and lacking feel.


So with this in mind, I wanted to see if I could find any aftermarket parts such as: Front & Rear Anti Roll Bars, Strut Brace, Adjustable Coilover and Spring Kit, and potentially some wheel spacers (as the wheels have been updated by dealership to 18" AMGs so don't really want to buy wider set of wheels and tires hence the budget option).


After looking around the web there does not appear to be any real aftermarket parts for this car, so I wanted to ask;


  • Has anyone else had success with improving the ride handling on this type of car?

  • Does anyone have any links to any websites that do decent (not boy racer) modifications for A200 2.0 Turbo?

  • Does anyone know if upgrade parts exist as per above for this type of car?



Thank you all in advance :)

Would you not be better off buying a W176? Lower centre of gravity, wider & a lot more sporty.
