    new to the forum!!

    hey everyone!
    i'm a 16 year old in the dallas area, and very soon i'll be getting my driver's license. soon after, i'll be getting my dad's car:
    2016 cla250 (mountain grey)
    we have had the car for about 2.5 years now, and i've been driving it for about 1.5 years, and i've come to love it.
    as of now, we've installed a piggyback ecu chip tune, and the car is running around 260hp. other than that, the car is stock.
    while looking for some more info on what i can do to this car, i found this forum, and since then i've just been reading up on all the crazy things everyone has done with their C117s!
    i have a lot planned for the car in the future, and i can't wait to work on it and get some help from this forum while i'm at it!

    some things i'm looking to do in the future:
    > muffler delete
    > BOV
    > powder coat rims (gloss black)
    > wheel spacers
    > limo tint
    > black front grille
    ((engine mods later!))

    Congratulations on your soon to be ride.
    I was driving my mom’s mustang at that age. I owned a 175 Bridgestone motorcycle, then a VW bug, then VW Squareback, then Chevy Vega in college.

    Welcome to the forum, jaballa19.

    I entreat you to reconsider the limo tint. While it looks cool, it should rightfully be called limit tint, since it restricts visibility. Why risk your own life and those of others for the sake of appearances? At least meet us halfway.

    Rapidfirerob, those VW squarebacks were great for hauling bass gear, eh?
    I took European Delivery and drove through four countries in my limited edition Universe Blue CLA 250.

    I was going to school at University of Vermont. The bug had no heat, and the squareback had a tease trickle of heat. The poor lovely blue bug was killed in an accident while I was delivering
    pizzas in NY, on Long Island. Having heat in the Vega was a big deal.
    Yes, the squareback was great for hauling bass equipment, while freezing your ass off. One time the hood flew open while I was on the freeway. That was exciting. I attached it with my belt.
    I rode my motorcycle everywhere until too much snow stopped me. Keg parties included. Amazing I'm still alive. Young and stupid go together, no doubt!
