I was contacted about an 84 500sec AMG for sale. from the pictures it does have the flat front bumper. I myself have a euro but what do i look for in an AMG? has clear head and corner lights. looks like BBS wire rims. Thinking about going to look at, but what else is there to look for?

Clear head, corner, tails are not AMG mods. The bbs wheels were an AMG option but there are many look-a-likes, check for the bbs logo by the lugs, correct ET could be 11,13,23 to be period and model correct. Check for white coil springs (could be black so not a definite sign), valve cover sticks, front/side/rear skirts with part #'s, AMG or nardi steering wheel (Nardi wasn't AMG but was offered by AMG authorized dealers), AMG cluster, burlwood shifter knob, extra door wood, etc. The list goes on!

Take a look and throwup some pictures, good luck.

Basically the more non factory crap you have on the car the more "AMG" it is. lol

You need to get into the correct mindset. AMG was a catalog of "goodies". You got what you bought - no more - no less. But if you bought two items you could get the trunk badge.

Simply look to see if you like it or not...

i've been swamped lately but he has it listed on CL, i really didn't hound him on questions because I seam to rarely get truth when i do that on the phone haha. It's about 2 hours west of cincinnati he told me. distance/price/time have kept me from going so far..
