What tells you that isn't an ML63? Do they even make an ML63?

2005 AMG E55
So crazy! This guy has the ***** to merge in front of me pretty quick. No cutting me off but almost as if he was trying to make a statement like "mine is better than yours." We get on the freeway, take off for a second, of course torque wins and I get on the side of him and give him the big thumbs down. Plates kill me. What a douche bag poser.

So what's with Hawaii? There seem to be a lot more there (at least based on this thread.) Yeah, the plates are over the top. But I wonder if some people don't even know what AMG is in the first place(?)

ps. I noticed your sig:
2005 MB AMG E55 (1 of 2214 ever made that year, makes me feel pretty special...) Those numbers are actually estimated units sold in the US only. Daimler hasn't ever released total number produced; those numbers come from MBUSA. I wish they would release actual production numbers, it would be interesting to know how many were actually built.

I'm sure it happens all over. I can honestly say, I've only seen about 10 legit AMG's in the past 3-4 years. I'm sure they're out there and I spend a lot of time on the road but it's always the same guys who see each other. Not to mention how small our population is as well.

I didn't really give a crap about posers, however latley.. it is getting annoying. Friday saw a nice E46 "M3" with single exhaust.. and badge was in a very strange spot,

and then I came upon one of the very rare C300 AMG..

Then about 5 minutes later, I passed a SLK 230 AMG.. (not the real one)

maybe Ill get some G55 and AMG badges and put them on my Suburban.



Better yet, Ill just get a sticker that says "Black" and paste in on my c*ck




(i went there)

I agree if that was the intent but with language such as "Place a AMG caliper decal and improve the looks of your car for years to come" and "Now is the time to give your car an unique look" I think this aimed at the posers on eBay. If real AMG can use them post-repaint of calipers, then great.

and just when you thought it was safe to ask someone to pop their hood in hopes of discovering if they really were AMG as final proof...come along the sale of engine maker plaque that use to be one of the sure-fire ways to distinguish an AMG engine...

A Prius because I'm green
So this douche creeps up to me on the freeway, I'm assuming to see if I"m an AMG or regular benz like his S550 AMG. Sorry the badging is hard to see but it's there!

You know I swore the first time I drove by this something was odd about the E55. Maybe I'm wrong but can anyone help me out with it, it just doesn't look right? It does have AMG badging on it, the glare is just drowning it out. There is also an outline of a 0 after the ESS so is it posing since they didn't badge it E55? They can't really be that stupid to put it upside down right?

The cl600 has a lot more torque than the e55 because of the v12 biturbo. You pulled on him? Just wondering.

Thanks Maddic, this just shows that you have no idea what happens in this world, except maybe in your own neighbourhood. Do some research before you call someone a poser. As there are a limited umber of these here in Jakarta, ex diplomatic cars.
NO I will not take the badges off just because you say so. wise up.

It's not knowing the world, it is knowing AMG. It's not an AMG. Period. No engine, no AMG. Perhaps the company that added the bulletproofing added the AMG badge, but it is still NOT an AMG.
