    have aquired a 1995 C36 , but noticed the coverplate on engine block does not have an AMG logo , is that normal , or has it been replaced?

    Hi there, im sure it should have an amg logo on the cover plate. Are you definitely sure its a c36 amg?

    The c36 amg was a c280 elegance from factory and taken from the production line to amg to be converted etc etc.

    Maybe this one did not have a amg cover-plate. Someone else with more info may be of more help.

    The early cars did not have the 3.6 on the plastic.The best way to see check is,if you drive a c280.You should feel a huge difference

    Also, the later c36`s have a slightly different looking AMG logo, but albeit do have an AMG logo. The black paint does flake.

    If those items were damaged you can bet the standard 280 covers and pipework were a LOT cheaper than the AMG ones to replace. Back then quite a lot of parts were bespoke. From the C43 onwards almost all items were "factory".
