As i understand WDB215373 relates to CL55 AMG and WDB21575 relates to CL500.
My car is W reg 2000,badged as CL55 AMG.
It has the AMG exhaust all bit it 2 single exhaust tails.
It has the black AMG engine cover,AMG wheels.And the log book shows CL55 AMG.With a chassis number of WDB215375
Is there anything else i can to do to find out what car i actually have.
Ive only had the car 1 month.

you say your V5 shows WDB215373******** but the vin plate shows WDB215375********?

if so your car does not match your V5, ring the police.

if it was a true AMG, you would have twin, twin pipes!

Also, when starting you would here the whine of the supercharger, can you post a photo of the engine bay!!

Ouch the number on the car will be in the bottom of the front screen.

You could enter the full 17 figure number here and get the read out and order from the factory

The brake calipers could have AMG on them,and will be the twin pad type as in the bottom picture

And the exhaust should the twin type bottom picture

The engine should have a signed plate on top from AMG
