Mabrook, I too have a Designo SLK55 AMG

Designo:
Designo Mocha Black Exterior Paint
Designo Tamo Anthratice Wood for the Interior; Other Wise my Leather is the AMG Black & Red which comes standard with the SLK55 AMG.

May I ask why do you have those large AMG decals on the hood with the builder of your engine and what colour exactly is your SLK55 , Interior and Wood ?

Either you're Kudreas Bayer...or he's paid you a ton of €€€ to plaster your designo. I like the seats...what I can see of them.

And welcome to the forum!!!

A side question to anyone who would answer. I'm curious why if someone would pay an extra $8000 for a designo, why not get a color that not many other folks have...like say...copper?

I'm with you on this one, I would get something less common, purple, blue, and maybe pink... okay not pink anything but what everyone else has.

What do the initials AMG stand for? Why is your BEAUTIFUL SLK 55 ///AMG a billboard? Interesting, attention getter. Maybe just a little too much attention for such a classy car. OK, what's the deal with all the decals? Many here want to know. I also love the seats. Welcome!

After further review, I would say the decals/logos are actually applied to the car.

I figured someone would have answered this by now, but here's the answer:

AMG stands for Hans Werner Aufrecht and Erhard Melcher who founded the company at the Old Mill in Burgstall near Grossaspach, the birthplace of Hans Werner Aufrecht.

There ya' have it.

I see:

You open the garage door, your neighbours looking at the rear of your car and - Nothing. They believe you are driving a Ford. That&#180;s not good!

Dear Kevin,

following situation:
you are driving 150 mph, your snack is falling on the ground, suddenly your telephon is ringing while you just open your Coke and your co-driver is asking: "What´s car is it?"

Better to print a little thing, somewhere here, somewhere there. Otherwise you´ll face dangerous situations. Believe me.
