The bigger crime is too many tacky chrome add-ons.

also, the seller is claiming 312 HP for this 5/2007 model; i thought the power bump didn't come until after 2008?

I don't know why people want to turn to turn things into what they are not.

I myself would like some different wheels and maybe the hood fins someday.

But I would never want to try to pass it as a 55. It makes no sense.

YIKES! Chrometastic!

I don't see a problem about AMGing your 350/280 (I personally love the AMG look), but don't put the AMG logo! That's just tacky.

I agree with you, I have a 280 and I am putting an OEM AMG spoiler on it as well. I looked at buying an AMG, but after shopping around for insurance and a few other things the 280 was cheaper in the long run for myself to buy and maintain.. On that note I would not put ANY AMG badges on my 280. It's just stupidity..I am very proud of my 280.

Not only tacky, but it's not even a real AMG logo. Where's the rest of the logo?
Nice that he kept the original SLK350 letters in case the new owner wants them back.

May I play the devil's advocate here? Drop all the bling badging, by all means drop it. What is left? It appears to be a nice looking, low mileage 2007 SLK350 at probably a decent price. OK! Just my opinion! Flame away!

-1- , I disagree with you. Having genuine diamonds on the badges shows class. Those are real diamonds aren't they?

Sorry, but I kinda like the chromed grill. Not the big grill fins, but the little black slats...
