RE: [off topic] amg

amg are more than just a tuning company.  they have for the last few years
been solely responsible for producing all of m-b sports-orientated product.

from the classic c36 to the new e55.  these are all produced *at* amg for
m-b.  exclusively.

amg has also had a lot to do with m-b's racing efforts (dtm etc).

afaik, amg is not owned by m-b, they are still at "arms-length", although I
think there is some board-level interest.

What the heck is a Mercedes AMG?  I assume it's an aftermarket mod company, 
but I was looking for details.  Looked exactly like a standard C-series, 
but with big "AMG" letters on the back, funny exhaust, and extra-big tires. 
Is this the company that drops in the huge V8/V12's?  Looked like a 
e type car.
