Speaking of which, I went to the dealer today to get an oil change for my 450SEL and I see an Sl550 rebadged as an SL55 (I assume the 0 just got taken off) and an AMG badge.

Probably a sports package equipped car, which is up badged as an AMG. Most people when they purchase a sports package Mercedes are happy knowing that the salesman told them it has amg kit, inwhich they go back home with their new car believing that it is an authentic AMG car.
