Mercedes Benz factory, whether it's here in the US (for the ML, GLK, GL) or the factory(s) in Germany have never, and will never, place an AMG badge on a car that has not been tuned and finished in Affalterbach, Germany. If the Sport package is ordered, it does not include the AMG badge on the trunk. One of my cars is a 2007 CLK550 Cabriolet with the AMG Sport package option, and I love the car. However, it is not an AMG vehicle so I would not go out of my way to place an AMG badge on the trunk. The car is gorgeous, as are most Mercedes, and simply does not need it.

I just happen to like keeping my cars as they were when they left the factories. I don't add aftermarket rims or anything like that. The cars are a work of art, and I prefer to keep my cars stock, especially my AMG.

A fellow Member of mine from the AMG Private Lounge website sent me this. I thought it was funny so I'm posting it here for you guys. It's good for a laugh or two. :-) Enjoy, and have a great day everyone.

Just a couple of notes. The GLK is not built in the US. The M, GL and R are built in the US. The AMG M Class is built in the US, with the AMG engine shipped in from Germany.

Thanks for the info. :-) I always like to learn as much as I can about all of my hobbies, and really everything in general. I read an insane amount of books and magazines in a wide range of topics. Cheers, enjoy your GLK, my dealership often uses them as loaner cars and I think it's a nice driving SUV. In my opinion, it drives more like a car than an SUV. Have a good day.

I just bought a 2016 C450 AMG.... Would that be an AMG or not ??? Curious what your answer is going to be. I mean if you goto MBUSA and Look up a C450 it clearly says AMG after it. Your thoughts please ????
