Ok, so having poured through the R171 threads here (and numerous searches), I have a question: I've read that 547 SLK55 AMG roasters were manufactured in 2007 (my model year). Are there any definitive numbers re. how many were imported into the U.S.? Any breakdown (either total or imported) re. numbers of those having the 030 (Performance Package) option? Exactly how "rare" is this beast sitting in front of my house?

Ron, you might want to register at the AMG lounge.

https://www.mercedes-amg.com/privatelounge/registration/welcome

Lots of good info there like:

AMG Lounge: They request figures not be posted.

From SoopRoop:

SLK 55
2005 - 832
2006 - 1297
2007 - 549
2008 - 403
2009 - 293
2010 - 201

From Eddy:

Just an FYI, per AMG marketing director, US sales account for roughly 50% of worlwide sales figures.

You could contact Dr Beckman if he is still employed at MB:

Good grief! More stuff to read? Haven't studied this much since grad school.

We are officially in the AMG Lounge. (Thanks for the link Jeff).

DataCard

OK. So I requested an "official" DataCard. We'll see how the two might differ.
BTW, thanks for the lead on "creator of our engines". Herr Timo Brill is apparently quite an accomplished engine builder. Let's hope mine was built on a Tuesday, Wednesday, or Thursday.
