The CLA45 AMG is just so AMAZING. However, the Canada version will not have 350hp nor AWD... It will be 208 hp 258 lb-ft and FWD. At least, the DCT 7-speed automatic transmission is available for us. All info here: http://www.mercedes-benz.ca/content/...ical_data.html
No idea about the AMG package yet.

I am not too concerned. You're right in your link, but that's just the regular CLA - I really, really, realy doubt Mercedes will skip the AMG version for Canada. It might take a bit longer, but I am in no hurry. I'm sure it will come

[edit] interesting. Reading the specs, if one were to assume a gain of about 15% of the CLA45 for AWD and "stuff" over the CLA250, then it would come out about 170 kgs heavier than my R. That's pretty crazy. The 335xi had a ptw ratio of 226 hp/ton, my R is going to be 210 hp/ton when my mods are done. Which means that if the numbers match up, it will have 210 hp/ton BEFORE any tuning. I guess the only problem is it's a pretty tiny engine, so the chances of it gaining 30-50% additional power like the N54 does are cockall. Oh well. Should still be a snappy vehicle.

RWD? No.

But if I were getting RWD, I'd just get an M3 (or a C63 if I was feeing kitschy), why look elsewhere, heh.

Btw vinc86, the strut bar is sold

Interesting times indeed! M135 doesn't have an LSD by the way, which is beyond me....

BMW has lost its way in my opinion. They used to be leaders, nowadays they are followers, I guess bottom line talks. Take the 2.0 4 cylinder turbo, which company came up with that first? Audi!

Now they are thinking of bringing a 4 series coupe following the 3-series sedan. Cough* Audi A5 coupe following its A4 series *cough

All products are getting to be similar if you ask me.



I read somewhere the A45 AMG will surely cross the pond, whereas the hatchback M135 unlikely...

BMW has indeed been a bit iffy lately. The new F30 is huge, mushy and somehow just not ... right. or tight. iPhone can correct this to whatever it wants. I haven't tried an F30 335, but I drove the "sport" line and it was pretty meh. Maybe the M will be better...

oh but while we're on the subject of BMW copying the planet, let's have an AWD M while we're at it. that's one copy I will approve of

... and maybe a "mM4"/"mM3" which will be positioned above the M4/M3 and have a V8. Hehe.

The way it's going that wouldn't surprise me one bit, e90/2 v8 3500 lbs is so far remote from the original E30 M3 it's not even funny, even if still quite potent.

M3 should be max 2800 lbs, 350hp I6, but I know it wouldn't sell much down south if it doesn't have all the creature comforts.

I think I can do it!

Btw: anyone looking for a Mini? Friend selling his grey 2009 Cooper S, warranty until end of summer, sport and all other packages except navi, 29k kms (! - lives downtown) and driven as if by a granny (in all honesty, this car has probably never been over 100 km/h). $21K. This is probably the lowest mileage Mini you'll find.
