    Hmmm not a [772] AMG-STYLING PACKAGE code in sight! LOL

    According to my EPC there should be no badges other than the star on the boot lid of this car too.
    I cant get on ebay but ill bet the boot lid on this is full of CL55 and AMG badges.

    Its a mis-translation on the Russian site .... see Andys post above .... 030 looks like it is an anti theft option.

    Someone post the seller a link to this thread ;)

    I've already done this, he says he has a receipt from AMG for the work done and that I can phone Mercedes to confirm it is an AMG car :)

    The problem is engine 113.986 is the NA 5.5 AMG lump found in the W215. Maybe it was a conversion?

    apparently it's got AMG brakes and an AMG exhaust - oh that's OK then :)

    no mention of suspension, body kit, engine, interior mods etc etc etc

    DVLA has it as a 5 litre car not 5.5

    weird - seems seriously dodgy

    It's not unheard of for the DVLA to have information incorrect, however does seem a little strange. The build date is before the first 215 55 appeared isn't it? Maybe it was the first or a special order :confused: .

    "AMG - AGGREGAT V8-M55/V12-M63" is still an interesting extra though, mistake or not mistake.

    Ah but that doesn't include the 80* code for model year (last digit being the year)

    weird, all the lists have different codes

    I want a disintegrator ray as well - I'd never seen that option :)
