    AMG is what M-Tech is for Bimmer or Lexus for Toyota. i.e. Styling, enhanced performance and ofcourse more price.

    @pakcruiser: Didnt have your location set to UK few days ago? I even asked where about you like there

    Pakcruiser you are almost right it is a tuning company but Inhouse for Mercedes unlike Brabus or Kleemman

    AMG for Merck is not the same as Lexus for Toyota...cuz Lexus is owned by Toyota while AMG is fully/partially independent business that works under contract with mercedes benz (now daimler chrysler)....moreover...there are no cars that are marketed solely as AMG...but there are cars marketed as Lexus.

    @szuberi: AMG was acquired by daimler crysler few years back and works solely for mercedes now.

    I said "AMG is for Merc as M-Tech is for BMW or Lexus for toyota" as in Performance and styling. For instance the M3/M5 for 3 and 5 series BMWs respectively. Both of the M models have more aerodynamic styling increased performance and much better road appearance.

    Lexus does the same with Toyota Land cruiser or the Toyota Harrier.

    In a nut shell the idea is to market the same product under different brand just to capture the entire market paradigm. Lexus has been overwhelmingly successful with it over the past few years. Lexus now is synonymous with performance, luxury,comfort expensive vehicles which was not always the case with Toyotas. Hence broadened potential customers.

    @khitran
    Amg is a tuning house for MB's & Smart they were bought by Merceds-Benz in 1998 and are now part of the Daimler-chrysler brand. If you need a new Air flow sensor it'll set you back around 30000 rupees depending on your model of car. You can have shah-nawaz order it for you or get it from the UAE at a fraction of the cost. Untill you do not change it your car will give you plenty of errors and problems.

    As for the merc forum, i'm sending you an email.

    AMG engines are speacially designed hand made engines which are supercharged to give enhanced performance plus better interior, like for a normal mercedes SL55 it gives out 490 hp at 6k rpm whereas SL55 AMG gives you an extra 20 hp at 6k rpm.

    There is only one SL55 AMG in pakistan

    @Hasan84
    In the latest range the C55 and slk55 also arent supercharged. There is no normal mercedes SL55, there is an SL550 though with 382HP which recently got launched.

    And the better interior is also not necessary on an AMG. Its true than an AMG car gets more kit as standard, but there is still stuff thats optional. For example designo interior is not standard on an AMG and has to be ordered seperately across the SL range.
    Also an AMG SL gets AMG Leather while you can Order Exclusive Nappa Leather as an option across the range.

    There are 2 silver SL's in islamabad with 55 AMG badges. One is fake (a 350 as you mentioned), the other is real.

    AMG offers limited production, performance-enhanced cars for the true driving enthusiast. These high-performance vehicles differ from standard Mercedes-Benz versions in their more powerful, high-performance engines and drivetrains, modified exterior aerodynamics, AMG alloy wheels and interior equipment to deliver top-level road performance and exclusivity within the Mercedes-Benz brand.
