Hello,

I have orderded my A180d in Progressive Line (not quite sure how they call it in UK, i think its the Sport model). I'd like to change the front bumper with AMG Line's one. But i dont know if its possible.



The current front bumper is this one,

It's cheaper to just order the car with amg line trim, than to retrofit new oem front- and rear bumper and sideskirts... As a bonus you get a nicer interior also.

It's too late now. I chose the Advantage package, Full-Digital dashboard, Sunroof instead of AMG Line. Apparently, i'd like to change the front bumper for now.

It's probably going to cost between 1000-2000€ to get bumper with grill 😕

Ouch. That really hurts then..
Look for breaker cars that have no front or rear damage. Might save a few quick on buying a used bumper. It's the cheapest approach.

At least here in my country I see a ton of front bumpers but all are for the stock bumper, not a single one for AMG line.

But besides the front bumper is anything else required, like other screws, other plastic parts, other parts in general or is a simple swap?

That was a good idea. I found a few parts. I'll ask for the price today.

The trunk is the same. I think it will fit. But i'm not sure about the sensors.

Sensors are the same, only different positioning. Might wanna recalibrate them after the bumper swap. Front-bumper has a different placement for AMG and business-line.

Yeah, sounds reasonable. 1500€ with the grill included in the price? Definitely changes the car in a good way, so if the money isn't the issue i'd go for that.

Then you just need the sportsseats, AMG sideskirts, 18” AMG alloys, AMG mats, branded brake pads, red stitching on interior, steering wheel and lowered suspension. 🤣 Then you are close to the AMG line package.

But on a serious note, the front bumper will add a lot. I wonder if it actually comes with the diamond grill or just without.
Also take painting into consideration. Don’t know you can order a part in a specific colour or they just deliver them primed.

Let's be realistic. It will never be AMG Line. But changing the exterior with amg's line bumpers, sideskirts and diamond grill it's a nice touch to the car! Much more sport looking in my opinion. I like the interior already so I dont really mind.

Going for extras in my country it's very different. You almost pay the double price for any extra because of the taxes. So I decided to go for Advantage package, Sunroof, All-Digital monitors and Ambient lighting. AMG Line would cost about 3,500€ extra.

Also i'm thinking about painting the rims to Black since the car is white color with black sunroof.. They're 17" but i was thinking to paint them like the 19" AMG wheels. Hopefully i wont make the car looks worse with my changes lol.

AMG line package is €6000 here with taxes 🤣🤣 A200 with Premium (not plus - so no sunroof or electric seats) and AMG Line package is about €60.000 (before any discounts)

I’m in Denmark.
A Tesla 3 Performabce is about €70.000 add another 9.000 for selfdriving.
You can also get a base model A-class for around 39.000. (180 manual) and the AMG 45S starts at €130.000 without any options....
If the prices seem crazy high then yes. Denmark have a very high car tax. But on the other hand the salaries are also high.

Also, take into consideration that Tesla doesn’t do discounts. But it’s easier with other brands. 10% on a new MB should be possible (if you don’t the get base version) And the €60.000 A200 with AMG and Premium packs could be €48.000 if you get it as a slightly used dealers car.
