Re: Fl LED puddle light bulbs

Just had look at our manual on the mobile and despite ours being a GLA45 basic information should be the same. We've got LED headlights and rear lights but couldn't find anything in regard to the "puddle" lights, manual states any issues with LED to contact specialist which seems a bit stupid. My un...

Re: gearbox re-call

Hi Nick Completely agree with your train of thought as despite being a young 72 there's no way we're changing to something else especially as there's only the two us. Still can't get over the exhaust note and love it when changing to Sport or +, really is something else. I'm firmly of the opinion no...

Re: gearbox re-call

Hi Nick May seem like a silly question but did you listen to the audio clip as that was more or less just like ours however only noticable literally just after starting on cold mornings. I did take ours into Sandown Poole which is where we bought and is local dealer but as it was around 11.00 and mo...

Re: gearbox re-call

Hi Nick Regarding the low speed was literally just after starting and driving a few hundred yards or so but from a cold start only. As I was working in the Middle East with plenty of time to spend looking at cars I saw ours advertised with the same group and kept returning to ogle as we do! Obviousl...

Re: gearbox re-call

Nick Can you advise if you've read this thread particularly regarding our previous car? As I'd been working abroad I was only home for about 25 days every 5 - 6 months so anything amiss I was able to hear or see things differently to my wife driving the car daily to work. Cutting a long story short ...

Re: Hello all

Hi Nick, looks a good one, my previous car was a white one but didn't have all the goodies on it that our new one had when we collected 1st March last year. We had usual additional Tints fitted by South Coast in Southampton including sun strip, they always do a great job at a reasonable price as wel...

Re: Hello all

Hi Nick and welcome to the forum I've been on here now for two years and into our 2and GLA45 current model being Sept 2018 and fully loaded as you can see when you look through the library. You'll need to add some pictures and hope you're ready to start spending? [emoji1787] Allan- dorsetred [emoji41]

Re: A few pics prior to collection

Not really as I'd seen the earlier threads and can understand only too well although you will have to use it once in a while. Although now retired at 72, I really do enjoy ours but would like something like a Smart 2 just for the short drives into the local towns saving the wear on the GLA45. Proble...
