    Is it safe to select AMG even if your car isn’t an AMG ?

    Well it has AMG trim everywhere so thought it’d complement that

    ^ AMG trim doesn't make it an AMG:D

    Kidding! ..... you go ahead and put whatever you like on it.

    I think I read in an MB doc somewhere that stated should a car come into the workshop with the AMG start-up screen enabled but wasn't an AMG model, the dealership should disable the option.

    Yep, one of THOSE !!!
    I’d be reminding the dealer that it is not their car to tamper with and to revert it back to the way you had it.

    Get a matching badge whilst you’re at it and slap it on the boot!

    I wish I could find that doc again, sure it detailed something along the lines of refusing to work on, or repair under warranty anything to do with COMAND. Obviously no concern to owners of these early models.
    It was just interesting to read how MB, then, was keen on protecting the AMG image and of course getting out of warranty work

    They were so been on preserving the AMG image they invented Amg-line.

    All manufacturers want the halo effect to filter down from their top models.

    M sport, s line, even ford now have st-line to describe their cars with rock hard suspension and weedy engines.

    Mine has AMG trim and sometimes I sit in it making loud Vroom! Vroom! noises.

    Seriously I would not alter mine but if anyone has an urge to then go ahead.
