From my datacard my 2009, delivered to me May 2008

fl came to Europe in 2007. your car was delivered in 2007 (late)

Of course....I've been wrong before :D

From my 2005 AMG datacard, I also have:
772 AMG STYLING PACKAGE-FRONT SPOILER, SIDE SKIRT

There are other differences with the facelift model too...
• what do the wing mirror covers look like?
• what colour are the buttons in the centre of the dash (pre-FL are silver, and I think post-FL are black)?

I'm sure there are other differences too, but I wouldn't trust the aerial/antenna or gear change buttons/paddles (I know that Russ's pre-FL has OEM paddles, so we think they were introduced before the FL).

I'd say it's pre-FL...

Looks like the white indicator in the tip of the wing mirror.

Also, no performance pack shown on the datacard so, if it has 6-pot brakes on the front (and they look big to me), then it will be pre-FL. :D

Looks like the brakes weren't good enough for the previous owner, whether they're pre FL or not! >:D

Agreed, it's pre-FL. Here's an example dash pic of post-FL (with later NTG and black dash buttons - steering wheel on this is also different, but I don't know if they're all like that)...

I wondered who'd buy that - kept an eye on it for curiosity's sake ....

As has been mentions, it's pre pacelift

Good luck with getting it sorted ... (and the pre-facelift mirrors are LED's, just not the 'arrow' style!!)
