Hmm Cant make out that Seal. Is the V8 Kompressor Badge on the RHS ? If this is the post- 01 car then it also wont be having the Paddle Shift on the wheel?

that IS a MERC garage. there were 3 more Mercs in that bldg. Its a 2003 CL, i guess. It has the slanting [like the new E] round lights and those new designs on the rear lights. And no it doesnt have paddle shifts. Its 100% AMG. The wheels and the seats also say so. And I cannot forget the sound.

BTW , why is this post not on the top of "New Posts"? New posts are supposed to appear on top of old posts. This is stil on page 2.

Well if this was a 2003 AMG car then IT SHOULD HAVE Paddle Shifts just like Mine. Another way to find out is the Brake Capilers is they say AMG. That is a sure shot way to recognize an AMG from the 'Normal' Mercs.

That "seal" next to the CL55 looks more like a daffy duck sticker!@? what the hell is it??

Hey RG.....i also had the suspiscion that it was a F1.....because it seems that even the newer CL55's which are F1s dont have the badge on the LHS?!?!

I dont know man.....i personally believe that the cars shld have the badging on both sides.....but then the photos say otherwise (not just these but others as well).....though this does look like a pretty genuine CL to me...

ALso the thing is that on the net people must be using the CL500 pics as the CL55 pics...i have tried a lot of research at official MB sites...but they all have the newer models which do seem to have it on both sides!.....maybe depending on which country u but it from they have different laws for some reason? (quite possible)...

but anyway......this is quite a pointless topic to keep pursuing! hahaha...

V12 lets see the other pics man!

cheers

True then we will keep it at that. This is surely an AMG as V12 has said the Capilers shout AMG. Topic CLosedd

I just remembered this topic when the SLK55 topic came out. Heard last that the Blue Impreza (parked alongside the CL55) is owned by a Maharaja's son. SO i guess this too is owned by the same person.

So this obviously could be the Maharajah's State Emblem.


Also the S (dark gray) we were talkin about is an AMG. Atleast the wheels (if not the engine) are. If you look closely at the wheels, you'll find there's something written on them. And what else but AMG written.
