You are all taking my comment in light hearted fasion too seriously! But your clarfication is my understanding too yes. It's an S500 WITH amg kit & wheels. Factory installed or not does not make the entire car an AMG product. We had one of these too years ago but never refffered to it as anything other than the S500Lots of S500 were sold by Mercedes with an AMG option: bodywork, staggered wheels.
It was a factory option. Came off the assembly line in Sindelfingen with that kit installed.
There IS such a thing.
Yes that's what I mean!The wheels are AMG and the car is not; it has a regular engine without the nameplate of the builder.
Package not including motor upgrades..... not an AMG car.Yes there IS such a thing as a S500 with AMG Package!!
Correct! My understanding and I cannot agree more It was a chain yank but we must also keep the AMG gods happy. A badge, kit & wheels isnt an AMG car. Period.Well, an "S500 AMG", no. However, since there was indeed an "AMG Sport Appearance Package" for S430's, S500's, and S600's (our '03 S430 and '03 S600 do have that package), which includes among other things the AMG wheels, the AMG tire/tyre size rules do apply. I took the above posts as referring to S500's with the AMG Sport Package.
