Perhaps someone can help me, VIN is as follows: WDB4632481X125432

Thanks in advance!
It is slated as a G500 but the 463246 is an AMG and a true G55.

Post Help VIN Confirmation G55

Hi Eric,

Thanks for your reply. As you can imagine this issue caused me much stress, but thankfully, everything seems to be in order after all.

After much research from various sources it seems some first gen g55's (if not all) are identified as g500s on vin check, but can be correctly identified by the engine indicated. In this case 113.982 which is the AMG 5.5. Another indicator would be the SA codes, ZY2 in this case for AMG 5.5. Also came across a document from AMG identifying Baumuster 463 248, 463 243 and 463 246 as G55 AMGs (attached).

Hope this info, your reply, and the rest of the thread will help future inquiries.

Now I can continue to enjoy my g55. Thanks again to you all!

It looks like Iíve got same issue.
Iíve got G55 amg 2002 from Japan and
decoder says itís g500 4x4.
But itís AMG and Iíve got ZY4 code.
The question is...
I need to find proper diff fluid and according to
WIS For normal G500 itís 85W90 for 55 AMG itís 75W140...
So which one oil I should use?
