The AMG version of the R170 was the SLK 32 not SLK320 and the supercharger was the big difference ( along with all the trim bits )
Sadly Mercedes seems to be diluting the AMG brand terribly as everything seems to come with 'AMG' or 'AMG Line' Option these days even if it's only got a body kit and wheels on it!
If the price is right and you like the car, buy it but dont pay 'true' AMG prices. If you feel the need to keep the AMG badges go for it.
The real mark of an AMG is a hand built engine off the AMG factory floor, silly amounts of horsepower and superb exhaust notes. None of which can be achieved with a bunch of stick on stuff.
