Hi Everyone,
I have just joined the forum.

Took delivery of my New A Class A200 CDI AMG Sport in Jupiter Red on 8th January.

Driven 2400 miles so far and enjoyed every minute.

Will post pictures soon.

Would be great to hear from other members with simular model.

Hi

That's a lot of miles! I've ordered the same but in Cirrus White unfortunately I've got to wait until the end of April (ordered early Nov). Look forward to seeing some pics. I'm particularly interested to see what the front Daytime lights look like on one without the Night package.

Hi

I live really really close to you and took delivery of a Southsea Blue A200 CDI AMG Sport on the 9th February. I still haven't seen another A Class on the road, can't believe I live so near to you, and haven't seen you around. I drive to Portsmouth every day in it. I've only done 500 miles in mine so far, but absolutely love it.

Hi, No real serious niggles with the new A class to talk about.
Ride on my AMG Sport model is a bit hard at times dependant on road surface but ne where near as bad as some reviews are saying.
Visability can be restricted throw the rear screen so I have added my own reversing camera and sensors.
Overall a good purchase and well worth the money.

Very nice too! Finalised my order today so only 9 weeks to go. Enjoy your car and let us know anything that is important! Glad I ordered the reverse camera and sensors, it appears that I will need them!

Really pleased for you!

Hi Lynne,
My Car was another customers cancelled order and so couldn't spec any extras. So I fitted revering sensors and reversing Camera from Ebay myself. You are quite right these are a very important extra as rear view is very restricted.

It is really lovely in Red, I did test drive a red one, but I decided the white Engineered is the one for me, I loved the Diamond Radiator and the touches of red! Enjoy your lovely car!

Hi, I bought the reversing camera from ebay (£48.00).
Measurered the centre of th bumper and made sure that thier was enought room behind to drill mounting hole.
Installed wireless camera into the hole and electrical conections to the reversing light circuit.
I then fitted the lcd moniter in the storage space below the heater controls and this is bone by sticking a mounting bracket into place with double sided tape and then plugging in the monitor into the aux power outlet.
Now when car is put into reverse the camera operates and turns the monitor on automatically.
I installed reversing sensors at the same time in a simular way. Both jobs took around 2 hours in total.
