A bit of trivia for info fans is the current AMG logo is a combo of the original company letters, plus the Mercedes Sportline identifier indicating merger of the two companies...

Those tips are great, much better than the horrible thing on my SEC.

New tips will definitely be an improvement!

Seems most of the rear bumpers had offset cutouts where the pipes from the rear muffler required sharp bends. However the AMG exhaust was straight out of the muffler. Did they change the rear bumper too??

I find it funny that many owners strive for an original AMG exhaust or at least a copy of same.... Don’t they know they’re a 30 year old design?? There’s been a few changes since then and lessons have been learnt by the mistakes of others.

I wonder if it is a series 1 vs Series 2 thing? Here is my car next to a Series 1 SEC. A bit hard to see because of the angle of the photo, but it does not look like the cut out is there.






I suspect the AMG thing is bragging rights at cars and coffee!

You may be onto something there! I’m not 100% on the external differences BW S1 & S2 but it appears like the rear bars on S2 had a lower skirt, hence the need for the cutout?? Perhaps S1 had no cutout whatsoever?

Looks like a very good option & something I’m very keen to try out on the SEC!
