Anyone know what this tag said at one time, it's worn i know. Only reason it intrigues me is that it looks to have an AM and missing a G but as far as I know my car was given the AMG body kit is all. Regardless is it something important, I can't read German at all so there is a downside to owning a Euro model[:)]. Thanks for the help.

Hi,

I think it reads the following in German:

Ab sofort duerfen bei allen Wartungsdiensten die Ventile nur in kaltem Zustand eingestellt werden.
Einlass x.xx mm Auslass x.xx mm

From now on, when the scheduled maintenance is due, the valves may only be adjusted when the engine is cold.

intake valve x.xx mm exhaust valve x.xx mm


Best regards


Hans

No question an AMG tag. You've probably got the 276hp version of the 5.0. Congratulations, a pretty rare upgrade.

Wow, damn, sweet. And here I was thinking I was just getting a cool looking body. I wonder why no one ever told the previous owner. Helps explain the hideously bad gas mileage as well[:)]

Thanks! I'll make a note of the translation.
