…you’ll also avoid “family feuds,� we have had pitched battles in the w126 forum as to whether a given sedan or coupe had the “true� AMG treatment. [}:)]

RE: To AMG or NOT TO AMG......

(hand up)

I bought my old C43 debadged; it had been that way from new, according to the sales docket. The effect with a C43 is interesting, because only real enthusiasts can tell it's a proper AMG and not a tricked-up C180. I was so happy with the overall effect (zoom past people without them having the faintest idea what had just got them) that I am considering having the same done to the E55.

My opinion goes with the others who have already said: rebadge it as original, or completely debadge it. Don't make it something it's not.

By the way: you haven't said whether the debadger's efforts have damaged the paint where the badges were; if he managed that trick, then leave a note in your window asking him to get in touch - that's a pretty skilled vandal you have there!

London, right in the middle
03 CL500 (Black/Grey, 48k, Comand, 7GTronic, Keyless Go) 302 Bhp
01 E430 (Silver/Black, 112k, Comand, Lingua, 7 seats, tow...) 275 Bhp
97 SLK (40k, Yellowstone, partner's car!) 200 Bhp
03 A210 AMG (Black/Black, 63k, project rescue car) 140 Bhp

...I make that 917 Bhp...!
