My 2017 GT

Thought I would layout my 2017 GT options and build. The packages and option numbers will hopefully be of help to 2017 GT buyers. My humble black GT.

040 Black exterior
501 Black Nappa Exclusive interior

389 Hands Free package
993 Lane tracking package
239 Distronic Plus
416 Panorama Roof
793 19" AMG Twin 5 Spoke Forged Light Alloy My 2017 GT-image.png
H70 AMG Silver Chrome Trim
L6J AMG FULL LEATHER WHEEL
P60 AMG Exterior night styling
U78 AMG Performance exhaust

Ordered March 26 and expected build in May. .....I'm real excited. As this is 3rd AMG in a long while.

Placing my Trust in AMG to fix first year problems. As I will never sell this car....

Thx man.

Cmon ! And we need to figure out how to tweak the stock sound in this car.

I was just at a exotic coffee and cars this morning and there must've been 100 Lambos and Ferraris and not one GT. I like that...

Looks like the only option right now are catless pipes which works for me in FL but not so good for you in GA.
Yes, the GT is a rare car which is very appealing. With a tune, it seems to be hanging its own against supercars.

I had a "stereo" put in mine.

They were able to fit a JL 10TW3 in a custom box, JL 5 channel amp, Audison Bit Ten, and the adapter needed to work with the stock electronics all into the passenger side of the hatch where the stock sub was located.

We also put Focal 3 ways in the stock locations up front as the car came with 3ways factory.

I think putting a 10w6 might be a little more challenging since it needs more room.

According to my audio guy, they used a JL Audio FIX82 to interface with the stock system.

edit: I'm an idiot. I didn't go with Focals.

I went with Hertz components. I was looking for something in the $1000 price range.

Also, one thing I noticed after the stereo.

Music over bluetooth sounds like **** on Mercedes Benz. Also tried it on my buddy's S class and there's a noticeable difference between bluetooth and wired.

I went from streaming Spotify over bluetooth (could barely tell i had a stereo in the car) to streaming Tidal Hi-fi using the wired USB connection. Makes a humongous difference. Tidal Hi-Fi has 4x the bit rate of Spotify IIRC.

Right so I have Tidal as well. Great bitrate.

Is the USB connection stock?

Why hertz?

yea just take your charging cable from your phone and there are 2 usb ports inside the armrest

Hertz because they're good speakers. there are dozens of speaker brands. most shops only stock 2-3 so it's almost impossible to go around listening to them all. and they'll sound differently on a sound board than in a car.

it's like buying a tv. just have to go off your price range, reviews, and installer recommendation.

Ty. Good to know.

Well it's such a small space in there. The sub and fronts need to be matched IMO.

I will experiment.

Thanks for sharing this info. Did you see any new options for 2017?

Also would it be possible to share who your sales person is? I am in Atlanta too.

Yeah for clear bra I use Atlanta Protective Films. This guy is excellent. His pricing is reasonable and he is the best guy in the market. Does all the Ferraris.

If you want the ceramic paint coating from a detailer, I use Apogee Detailing and I have been very happy with their work too.
