Hey RG,

The "V8 Compressor" badges arent missing.
They are only located on the RHS of the car. Im not sure but it is possible that later models have it on both sides? But generally when u see a CL55 with these 19"ers it has the badging only on the RHS.

cheers

Hey bud,

You are right about it being on both sides. (definitely in the current models etc etc)

However im not sure about in the older models...ie 2001 etc if it is on both sides? im not sure...maybe im wrong.....

and about the 19"s... these wheels are avail in 18" and 19".....my bad.

Heres a pic of a very official cl55 without the side badging...but thats probably for safety reasons! ;-]

cheers

Hey RG are you talking bout the so called S55 AMG at Choksi garage grey with the star on the grille? Is it an S 500?? Cause after seeing an AMG badge on it, a few days later , I saw an S320 badge on it with no AMG. Its an HR reg if I'm not wrong...

Cheers

An AMG-ed Merc can be easily identified by the front bumper. Its the same design for all their models.


SL55 AMG


CL55 AMG


S55 AMG


SLK32 AMG


E55 AMG
