Hi there. Nah I was told that there was a portion of 2011 amg's that were affected. There was an engine serial number thrown around on the other forum... if your engine number of lower then that serial it was affected, some 2011s were included unfortunately

Was there a recall on the head bolt issue? If there was then you could ask MB.

MB never acknowledged or recalled these engines for this issue.

I was told by my main dealer head mechanic ( who is brilliant ) the safe engine nos for CL 63s must be engine no ending greater than 60658.
He did advise me to avoid any prior to that, even if they had been recalled. He said they only fixed the broken ones!

I.e. possible slight damage before discovered.
Sadly there are many even quite late ones effected.

Very sad as imo the ultimate deep, deep, deep AMG roar ...
never surpassed ... biggest Pots!

^ There is an indy, on here, that has reported the issue with later engines than 060658.

Also, camshaft/lifter wear seems prevalent on all engines, see Tasos Moscatos on YouTube
