You are not Mercedes or AMG. Just because you bolt on [what you believe] are the missing parts between your car and a real AMG, does not in fact make your car an AMG.

So, you can buy the brakes, the seats, the quad exhaust, etc. -- it's still not a CLK55. Just like if I go out and buy a bunch of Ferrari parts and put them together -- it's not a Ferrari.

Precisely. Because it wasnt built BY Ferrari. It would be built by you.

Same applies to your 550. It was built by Mercedes, NOT by AMG. You do understand that AMG has its own factory in Affalterbach, yes? Every AMG car comes OUT of that factory.

Yours did not.

Brabus does not put an AMG badge on their cars, they use their own badge.

If you make your car faster than an AMG you can badge it with "Powered by Johnny" or "Mikey-Tech" or whatever but it does not qualify for an AMG badge unless it came like that from the factory.

Mercedes already bought AMG has their tune division years ago. And each AMG car has their model. If you put Brabus parts and badge it as Brabus then its fine. Some people has Kleemann tune and put Kleemann badge. But AMG is like a model of a particular car.

No Einstein, what I am saying is "what's your point?" Why are you doing this dog and pony show in the first place? Your "racing" excuse has no rationale.

I'll say it again: The point is, what's your point?

You not exactly living up to your avatar there, Sparky.

Ya, this "what if I did..." is getting ridiculous. We're not talking about particle physics to warrant all these Thought Experiments to determine what is and what is not an AMG.

As AMG stated, they put the badges on the AMG vehicles they built, no one else. End of story.

When im done by poser transformation i will be more than happy to send you a picture so you can point out what will give it away from a clk55.
Any 09 model should cost more than the older model, kind of how the world turns. Since you are running a 550 you should be comparing yourself to a 63 not a 55 and use their numbers accordingly. I am pretty sure Mercedes replaced the 500 with the 550 the same year AMG replaced the 55 with the 63.

I drive a slow *** 500 and I could care less...

The CLK sections calling-- they want their idiot back.

I really don't know why I, or whomever else is arguing with you is even doing so to begin with, you are simply the exact opposite of your avatar. I can't believe you actually, really, genuinely don't believe you are a poser. It's hilarious-- as Litigator said, you've given us some insight as to the thought process involved in posing.

Maybe I should get 65 badges and stick it on the rear on my car-- hey, I gotta freakkin' V12 why the hell not?

CLK 500(Gone), C63 FTW!
I used to own CLK 500, and I could careless about AMG or not...yes, I had AMG appearance, but for me...I dont think I am going to put AMG badge on my car..reason? Not sure, but I dont feel like being called a poser...ultimately, I dont think CLK 550 got the AMG tuned suspension, Brakes, Exhaust, Interior, Air Intake??, Speedometer (Dial), exhaust note.

but hey, that's just what I felt

Yes- it really is. I have an 05 4matic e500 and an 05 e55. I like each car for what they are. I wouldn't rebadge either for the other. You are both a poser and either extremely ignorant or trolling by acting like you don't know why anyone is calling you out.

Hmmm, this guy on eBay keeps insisting his car is an actual AMG (?) Is it? Or is it not? I guess only his mechanic knows for sure. Or maybe it's a rare version I've never heard of before.

I cannot believe the debate on fake badging still continues. It's a clear separation on what an AMG and N/A MB's are.

You can always try and register your car at the AMG Private Lounge and then...................No wait!!! You can't register because you don't own an AMG.

Nothing wrong with owning a CLK 550. Just dont put an AMG badge on it since it didnt come that way.
And by adding the AMG and dropping the "0" from your badge is posing and doesnt make you an AMG, even if technically by numbers its faster then the older model. Anyone looking at your newer model is gonna say. They didnt even make the CLK 55 in that year. It became a CLK 63 , so a pose is a pose and you my freind would be posing!
