I was out in the evening (working the late shift) and I spotted an A-Class with Reg: A45 AMG.... as it left the junction near Bristol(UK) what made me look was the popping of the exhaust as it sped away..... does anyone on here have this car? As it was evening I could not determine the colour, but I think it was white??

Tone i believe it was white, had a call from my Dad yesterday saying he spotted a white A45 with those plates on the A34 going through Oxford. I'm guessing MB are swapping the plates from car to car.

I doubt they would be doing that on a regular basis?

Would be a right chew in with the DVLA.

I'm sure the plate sold at auction and it's more like dealers have slapped a A45 AMG plate on the car for showroom use only and use trade plates when out and about on demo drives etc.

maybe so, might have just swapped it to the white one and just will leave it on that. Would have thought it would end up at Brooklands.

Yep. Plate sold at auction for £9000. Pricey for a plate that's essentially landlocked?!?

Man, what i'd pay for that plate is stupidity, i'm actually glad it's not for sale. It's so good, it doesn't look right.

Yeah thinking about it for sure was thinking E63s but there’s no good deals to be had all want retail money for ‘‘em there’s no fun in that
I just think buying a new car now is not a great experience, from a price and equipment perspective. But will see what the A45s FL brings.

Could be a couple of years away yet ?
I've got time as under 15.5K miles to date, unless the A45s FL is a real humdinger which makes me want one of them.
