Is this for real? Someone says they have a 280SEL AMG.

Someone says they have a 280SEL AMG.
I have never EVER heard of this model. I think the guy tacked the AMG on his trunk. My mechanic told me a guy brought in his 560SEL (that was the lettering on the trunk) only to discover a six-cylinder under the hood. Do you know anything about this supposed model? [?]

i highly doubt it, nowadays, you see Amg signes stuck everywhere. I saw a 190 E the other day, and it had an amg badge on it, and it looked completely stock. Plus, the 280 has always been the least expensive of the SEL's. so, i am saying, that it is a fake.

My cars:

BLACK 1996 S500 (W140) - Sold

BURGUNDY 1989 560 SEL (W126) - Sold

back in the 126 days you could have AMG do a custom anything which would technically make your car an AMG original.... not that AMG cupholders would make it any faster on a track[:D][:D][:D][:D]

That is the person (The Razz)i'm referring to...
To me, you'd have to be pretty dumb to try and pull some FAKE shit here, with so many REAL Mercedes experts around. Bolt-on ground effects and a little insignia do not make it an AMG. CLOWN! [:o)][:o)][:o)]

RE: Is this for real? Someone says they have a 280SEL AMG.

I have been surfing the web. There is no, NO mention of that model anywhere, anyplace. This is what "The Razz" (Benzworld member) said about his car - By his spelling ability I think the guy might have been duped
into thinking he was buying an AMG. Hmm...?

"It doesn't have the AMG on the valve cover. But she is a screamer. Most of the emissions equipment was removed. It was I guess a lower end AMG model since it doesn't have lether seats, as well as not much lether inside at all. Tho it does have heated front seats.
The car was origanly sold to an older couple in Az. ( hence the posable non-lether seats ) The second owner was a friend of the family that took the car over when the older couple couldn't drive it anymore. That person had no respect for the car, the cloth seats are THRASHED, from what I could only guess as being WET MUDDY DOGS. When he moved to Idaho he had most of the emissions equipment removed and cut the O2 wire completly out. I'm still having some idle problems, But I'm getting warmer on fixing that. Between the distributer, the weard idle screw next to the block, and the fuel mix alan key in the Plenum/fuel injector combo thingie...
IF and when I get a job, I'm going to replace the seats with lether ( LOVE LETHER ) replace all the wood trim, replace the dash ( cracked as all get out ) the lether door trim. I'm going to have the car totaly repainted ( same color, I LOVE THAT COLOR ) Going to have the origanal rims ( still on the car ) re-done. I'm looking to prity much restore the car, to better than origanal condition.
The other day My son and I got the front 2 windows working ( sooo haaapy ) he was a big help, handing me everything I didn't need at the times I didn't need them.. He's the BESTEST helper in the world.
I may see if the dealership that shipped and sold the car is still in busness. I want to get more history on the car ( and I have the phone number too )..
And to Gary, Your Welcome, I'm glad I could help.
To JDC1244a,She's a mule when she doesn't like somthing. Tho she will insure it once it's got plattes, since all we have to do is drop covrage on the van.
To Jessie, I know you were joking about the devorce."

starcar126,
i do agree with you on some points, but its not nice to make fun of other members. They have their own life, and they can do whatever they want. Don't be insulting them. They are an MB owner, just like you. The whole point of this forum is to help each other, and talk about the Mb's we love, not to go around and diss people about how stupid they are, or ridiculing their spelling. Who cares. It's about cars, not being the best speller.

for all we know, TheRazz's MB could be an AMG.back in the day, you could take your mercedes to AMG , and they could change your car, without changing the engine.

if you have questions, try contacting TheRazz, and see if he can explain it.

My cars:

BLACK 1996 S500 (W140) - Sold

BURGUNDY 1989 560 SEL (W126) - Sold

Not sure if they still do but a couple of years back you could buy a C180 sports with a AMG styling package in the UK.
I asked about it once and I was told although it didn't officially come with any AMG badges Mercedes UK allowed the dealers to put the AMG badge on.
