Re: the fake badges, people who don't care about cars won't even know what the AMG or M monikers are.

And people who do know and care about cars in that way will know they're full of shit.

It's a complete lose-lose situation for the driver.

I assumed it was a fake badging.  Did they just remove one of the zeros from the C300?

My guess is dental floss to knock one of the 0s off and this http://www.ebay.com/itm/Mercedes-Benz-AMG-badge-Emblem-Decal-Trunk-Fender-Sticker-Logo-Chrome-USA-NEW-/322020433826?hash=item4af9e9dfa2:g:N-IAAOSwofxUfXJA&vxp=mtr

I'm surprised brands haven't had eBay remove postings like similar to how they'll remove fakes.

I'd almost guess the AMG and M divisions laugh a little when they see things like this. Like GF said, I doubt the average person sees this and sees anything other than a Mercedes and those of us see this and laugh.

I would like to see someone buy a 981 GTS, knock off the S and stick on a 4 - I'm guessing someone has thought of it.

The technology is almost there already - just make the S a 4:

You really don't think chicks fall for this? People are more aware these days than you think, at least in southern california.

I dunno... Baseline here is still a shiny black Mercedes.

It's not like someone putting a Ferrari kit on their Pontiac fiero... Will the extra amg badge really convince anyone?
