They must be since all AMG cars have that famous growl when you step on the go pedal. The S600 is really set up to perform quietly and smoothly(and very well I might add), you may want to move to an AMG since the whole characteristic of the S600 will change.

As far as I know, on the S series, the AMG badge just indicates cosmetic changes (wheels, bumpers, skirts ) and nothing mechanical.

Actually your wrong. AMG can mean many things. The real AMG are S63 & S65 which are the really expensive and fast ones. i believe V12s. You might see the S550 with the AMG badge which means either it has the AMG appearance package (body kit and wheels) or just a regular S550 and someone just put a AMG badge on it. But AMG badge that you see dosent mean its a authentic AMG.

I meant that on the W221 platform, having a "amg" signified car simply means you have different wheels, exhaust tips, bumpers and side skirts. There was no performance benefit from getting a AMG s550 vs plain jane. Its purely cosmetic

No shit, anyone can throw a AMG badge on anything (lawnmower?)

That only works for the S550 Asshole. The S comes in 4 models. S550, 600 63, and 65. the real AMGs are the 63 and 65s. and what does this have to do with a S600? when that doesn't even have a AMG badge on it? Im pretty sure ml500rus meant a real AMG exhaust and not one off of a S550. And i think you should do alittle more research before you try to prove a wrong point.

Not mad at all. Just telling you what i know. And people shouldnt be trying to prove a point thats wrong. Im 16 and read alot about these cars and most likely know more than you so i was just correcting you.

I sold my 2007 S600 and bought a 2007 S65. They DEFINAELY have 2 different exhausts.
