AMG Owners! Remember....Not all R172s/R171s/R170s are AMGs but all AMGs are R172s/R171s/R170s so consider that where you post

So before you post in the AMG section, consider if your thread might be better posted in the R172/R171/R170 general discussion section if it is not just an AMG issue. This way, more members that do not have an AMG might be able to assist in answering it. If it is R172/R171/R170 model related and posted in the AMG section, some members without an AMG might not venture into the AMG section to look at it.

The purpose of this thread is just so members consider where they post their questions.

Jeff,

I'm confused.

Are you saying that my wife's 2002 SLK32 AMG is an R171? I thought it was an R170

no. slk 32 is a r170. I was just alerting the majority of amgs owners of the fact that
Not all generations are AMGs but all AMGs are R170/R171 or R172, so they think to post in the appropriate general discussion section and not in the AMG section as the problem can also be answered by a non AMG owner.

Maybe it will have it's own Forum...after all it's not an SLK, perhaps all the new owners will head to the MB 'C' class forum as some journalist have indicated that it is a 'C' class roadster

Question

Would i be correct in saying that only cars with an engine built by AMG are AMGs?

Cheers Russ

Technically yes, but when MB sells AMG body kits and suspension packages and includes it in datacards.
