Um, not sure whether to cheer or boo...

Looks great but I'm sure some of you might consider it an abomination.

good question...

What makes this an AMG? Parts? Did AMG do the conversion or simply provide the aero effects?

If it had a VIN provided, I'd think it was very cool.

It is a "kit" ride as the brits say... If the parts are for real, then its a cheer. Even if not an authentic AMG, its rare to get a euro wagon with the effects and wheels. Very vintage, though some would call it "kitch."

I like it but it is a tad bit too low for my taste. Its fairly understated and smooth looking. If its real, then hooray. Even if its a fake and well done then its okay. Tough to tell how well it was done from the pics. RT

Did any 4.5l M117 come with a leveling suspension pump? I wonder if they used a pump from a 5.0l or 5.6l M117. Or if they canned the leveling suspension altogether.
