I would take the black series. I really don't care about the convertible top as much, and would prefer the weight savings from a carbon roof and interior.
HP is so easy to add afterwards, from Kleeman or Brabus or Renntech, but after going through this kind of project myself, i think the differences from AMG is worth it. A fair estimate to do the same amount of work that AMG did, would be around $40,000 from the aftermarket....plus 25% markup because it's labeled AMG, and the Black is priced just about right.
Could it be done cheaper? possibly, but not without cutting a lot of corners.
