I'm afraid we don't have a lot of tuning options for this car over here, except a few local custom tuners that haven't developed anything yet. No DMS here either. So I've decided to stick to plug n play tunes, such as Brabus, and I might get away with keeping my warranty too. I did talk to my salesman about it when I picked up the car, and although he said that even Brabus will void my warranty, there could be room for maybe a stage 1 tune. But he gave me the impression that officially I won't be covered. So I'm afraid I'm gonna have to live with smaller gains, nothing like DMS's 490hp and 610nm. Probably like 460hp and 540nm, which let's be honest, it's not too shabby either. I'm gonna let Forrester get his first, since he's familiar with their tunes and is obviously not hesitating, while on the other hand I've never had a Mercedes before, and if feedback is good I'll get her tuned next Summer (2021).Theo I will eat my words if you get the Dms map in your car and think you can forget about linear feels Boring to me you won’t have time to think about it the performance is unreal everybody needs it in there A45S
how I knew it was really fast when my 6 year old son said to me holyfeck daddy this is fucking quick !

does anybody know who the company in italia brs Motorsport were they got there downpipe for there stage 1 a45s
it will break my heart to pay nearly £1400 for front downpipe was going to bust my own one up but Mercedes said it will cost 2k replace it
milltek are making one buy won’t be ready till July will they all be the same mad money for a front downpipe ?
Isn't the next version of the a45s coming with the electric booster motor which should pump up the bottom end torque. This is what's also planned for t h e new c63s, but I would suspect the a45s may get the toned down version to avoid too much competition with bigger brother.
I'm not so sure MB will "respect" the bigger brother. I remember reading something about MB not being so passionate about maintaining hierarchy like VW/Audi does like it's their holy bible or something. Think they're more concerned about what RS3 does, which according to many sources is expected to get a significant bump to 444hp. I sure hope it does, cause that will put the pressure on MB.Zash I am sure you are right MB will detune the A45 engine compared to the C63. Which will be annoying and a potential turn off to buying the FL A45s.
Spot on by Evo. Good post.
