This is a two part question.

In order to qualify (per AMG pre-merger policy) for the AMG badge one had to purchase 2 or more exterior tuning items. If you bought front and rear spoilers from AMG and had them installed at the factory they would allow you to buy and install an AMG body badge .
Since pre-merger AMG determined that an owner needed to have 2 or more exterior tuning items in order for them to buy and display an AMG body badge officially.

1. Does the purchase and factory installation of 2 or more exterior tuning items qualify a post-merger car for a AMG body badge?
2. What are the official post-merger badging rules?

According to the AMG product managers at MBUSA, the official stance of Affalterbach and Daimler is that the vehicle must be an AMG designated vehicle with an AMG motor.

This was announced at the MBUSA/AMG Private Lounge forums some time ago.

Apparently some dealers have either attached AMG badges on non-AMG cars or do not take off AMG badges when customers trade in cars that they personally badged. This is against AMG/Daimler advisement. Only AMG Mercedes vehicles can 'officially' wear the badge.
