    Re: 1990 Mercedes Benz AMG Hammer Pre Merge AMG - eBay Listing

    Ugh...why do they always try to associate "Hammer" with anything AMG from that era?

    Cool car. I concur with the hammer association all the time. When I had my lowers painted the body shop owner called me and told me that the "hammerhead" was ready.

    It's a Gen 1 kit with a Gen II front bumper. In fact, most AMG of Japan builds went this route. Due to the age of this car, it probably had a Gen 1 when it was built and was later updated to match the current trend.

    Jap Import... They seem to be common as muck over there.

    Someone changed the exhaust manifolds for the later type... I didnt know that was a straight swap... I would have done that when I rebuilt my 3.4 AMG just a few months back!

    Yup I meant bumper.

    May be it matches trend but does not really match pre face lift grille and amber blinkers IMHO

    Hi,
    What would be the advantage for doing that? I also noticed the exhaust manifold on this m104, but imho this is more an "optical" issue, (no real technical advantage). Do you have some pictures, experience (or thread) to share with us concerning the work on your m104 Amg ?

    This 3.4 amg looks nice except the already mentioned non-matching front bumper and wheels. The rest is ok, personally I don't like the white speedos.

    It should have had this front bumper.

    By the way, VIN is not correct in first post nor in ad. But correct in picture.

    Japanese import !

    Not in the US, but Can-a-da, yes ! Importation laws in Canada not as tight. In the US after 25years old it becomes easier I believe, hence you might see ( as this 3.4) more reaching the US.

    Yes 25 years is the US limit. This is why you are seeing this sudden surge or pre merger amg cars and e30 m3's being sold.

    I agree, although I do like the Gen II kit, on this car I would prefer it as it came from AMG, with the Gen 1 front bumper.

    Up for sale again apparently

    1990 Mercedes-Benz 300E AMG 3.4 - RARE 300 E AMG 3.4

    Up for sale is this rare and highly sought after pre-merge 1990 AMG 3.4 Based off the 300E platform. This AMG is a Japanese market car that was legally imported to the US and comes with a clean and clear TN title,vin number is WDB1240311B405554. This was purchased by a local collector last year and he is now liquidating a small portion of his collection. This AMG comes with books, 1 key, and the original Mercedes tool roll in the trunk. It is very clean, rust free, runs and drives fantastic, and needs very little! Everything is in good working order with the exception of the radio (does not power on) passenger seat switch works, but the forward power toggle does not. Also the passenger rear window needs a new regulator. The motor is sound with no engine lights, the AC works, sunroof, all lights gauges, etc. Please call or e-mail with any questions.The car is located in the greater Nashville Tn metro area.There will be an additional $299 dealer doc fee assessed to final agreed upon transaction fee.This and other European Collectibles may be reviewed at JPFRAZIER.com

    Interesting to see that there is no bid on it. Starting price is around 6300eur (ok, with reserve price), and only 2 days left from the auction.
    No interest in such a car in the US?

    $20k USD and they can't spend $20 for a spare key, or fix the rear window regulator?

    that and the $299 dealer doc prep fee that goes on top and dealer's try to treat as if were a state sales tax or similar.

    Indeed, no bueno. Total scam, and I cringe every time I see it.

    Although, I guess it just means you have to negotiate down to $299 lower than what you’re willing to pay!
