R171 AMG Driver's Package

Hi guys!

I was looking for an answer for this question but found nothing, so maybe you can help me... Does anyone know what Driver's package is all about? The Performance Package gives you stiffer suspension, better brakes, higher top speed but what gives the Driver's Package? Is the sporty AMG steering wheel part of Performance or Driver's Package?

The problem is in the brochures there's a lot of information about Performance Package and none about Driver's Package. :/

Maybe you are right... Can't find any info about it so maybe it just doesn't exist.

And one more thing. After r171 facelift in 2008, the headlights are dimmed? I've called MB customer service and they claim that pre-facelift and post-facelift headlights are identical but even on pictures you can clearly see that these postFL are darker...

look exactly the same to me with hid i believe

both pre and post are amgs and they usually all the time have xenon hid.
the second picture is not an amg or it does not have the headlight washers
so unless you have their vin and can look at their datacards, you are just guessing

For me they're identical except this dark, tinted "background" in postFL modell.

Btw, is on this forum and "Edit post" option?

It doesn't matter AMG or not. It's the same story with all R171s. Headlights after the lift are clearly darker but the surprise for me is no one can confirm that...

if you mean the round 'dark' circle, again that is the xenon hid 'covering'
go to our vehicle datacard request section, and look at anyone's AMG datacard and you will see xenon/hid for main lights and h7 halogen for low beam. maybe that is what is confusing you.
you can also go to the owner's manual of any year and go to the 'bulb' section and see what i mean

Owners Manual: A Go-To Source for Information on your Vehicle | Mercedes-Benz

that is all i can add.

To make things clear - I'm talking about this part of headlight (and I still claim with no doubt that this part is black in postFL models and silver in preFL models):
