@Jayjet17 congrats to you and your pal on getting AMG A35s at 22 years old! £650 for your insurance is really good for someone so young. I'm 46, have been driving for 28 years and have 20+ years no claims, yet my insurance is still £450 on my A35.

I am 57 and 58 next month.


This is also the first car that I have purchased brand new from the dealer and after swearing for many years that I would never buy a brand new car because of the depreciation I went and did it because I could afford to buy it outright. I have also paid for GAP insurance to protect my investment.


Got my A35 in March and so far I have been very impressed with it although there are lots of things that I haven't even tried yet like.... Cruise Control, Race Start, Speed Limiter.


I will try all of these things in time but for now I prefer to drive it as I like with the added option to switch to sport and sport+ if the desire is there.

48 years young with a denim blue A35 and aero pack, although I'm now tempted by a 45s CLA and the wife can have the A35 :smile:

Love the A35 still not sure about the spoiler but at the time was the only way to get the 19” black wheels :sad:

Welcome to the A35 club.

Getting the 19" AMG wheels was the sole reason I went for the AMG styling pack too as the night pack wasn't available at the time. But the spoiler has grown on me over the past couple of months, and I really like the rear diffuser (probably cosmetic rather than a functional) and the canards on the front now as well. I guess it depends on whether you want a Q car or not. I thought I did, but I'm glad I didn't go for that look after all.

Thanks for the welcome, I love all the extra's with the styling pack, its just the spoiler that I'm really not sure about. I even badgered Mercedes to see if I could have the pack but without the spoiler. So I hesitated for a couple of months and then decided it would grow on me, pulled the trigger and 2 weeks before mine was due they updated the options so that you could have the wheels without the spoiler!

Don't get me wrong, its the first car in a long time that I really want to drive and enjoy driving and I love the build quality and of course the tech! Its my first Merc and I have to say I'm very pleased with it and the over all service but I think next year I will go for the CLA 45s :)

Believe it or not, this morning I saw my first other A35 driving along and the driver looked like an older gentleman. It got me wondering what the average age of a A35 owner is, only because 'when I were a lad' hot hatches were prominently owned by upwardly mobile people in their mid-twenties. Other than on YouTube, the only people I've seen with my own eyes driving an A35 is the aforementioned gent and myself, and I'm 46.

So just for a bit of fun, how old are you A35 owners and soon to be owners?
I just turned 19 and have an A35 AMG. One of the only teens with this car I guess. My 20 year old friend has a CLA 45s.

I was 18 with the 2019 a200 so huge upgrade. Sold it and brought the a35 at 19!

insurance is £1800 if you’re wondering

I’m 29 and had mine since October. I pay close to £600 for my insurance which I didn’t think was bad as I had a small bump last year in the mrs car.
