FrankW and pocholin you guys see what I see too. hhmmm....
Did AMG even release E55s with "sport" badges?

...and FrankW regarding your statement about Benz vs. Bimmer, I completely agree and knew what you were talking about. I think its just plain childish to even discuss such issue. As a matter of fact, plenty of our fellow members are current owners of BMWs...hell, our fellow members are also current owners of plenty of other make and model of vehicles, so its unnecessary to even have such discussion.

and yes the new M5 is something for all make and model to watch out for.

cool, so they had avantgarde trim difference for the 210 E55 as well in Europe. Probably difference in the seating trim level.

In US we usually get avantgarde or elegance only, so no badge's needed...

That Red E55 is nice. I also notice the different B-Pillar trim. It looks like red fake carbon fiber. US models do not get body colored fake CF on the B-Pillars.



Curious - For RHD cars is the brake and gas pedals for the left or right foot? Thanks.

Wow, that Red E55 is a real beauty!!! I love the red carbon fibre look on the B-trim. But I think the black/grey two tone interior isn't the best match for the exterior color. Should have been Ruby like mine!

here is a link to all the pics of the car.

for sale at a dealer in sydney for AUD$150,000 you can work it out to USD seems a bit expensive to me, although I have never seen one in that colour and with those options.. New price was close to $200,000 AUD I think.

enjoy

In case no one's responded (haven't checked ), yes E55 Kev, the gas and brake are for the right foot and the park brake is located on the left side.

BTW, that is a picture with Sydney Uni in the background - hence not European spec (despite the deceiving architecture in the background!).

Sounds like they have very different setups for AMG's in OZ........or its a fake (with serious interior mods) ......Did they ever make them in Bordeaux or was it repainted (nonetheless, very nice!)? I also confirm that there's no fender badges in Asia.

Thanks for the information.

The W210 was available in Bordeaux Red from factory. This one was auction on Ebay from Florida:

I would be interested to know if Lexus and BMW owners give MB the same treatment.

Which Tag? The Price Tag or the tag sewn in the back of the shirt by the maker? Dealers buy their own specialty clothing items from many vendors and can have the MBZ star place on the item. That T-Shirt shoulds like something 'your' particular dealer is doing.

If is it not shown here www.thecollection.mbusa.com it is probably your dealer only. My local dealer has all kinds of stuff made for them by vendors that are not specific to MBUSA, Mercedes-Benz or Daimler-Chrylser.
