I've noticed people put fake signs on their MB's.

If it's C 240, or anything like that they have a tendency to put AMG C 55, if it's S 430 they put S 500, and stuff like that. I rather de-badge mines than put anything fake on it.

How many of you guys put fake emblems on your MBs, and why?l

I would actually be interested by doing the opposite.

Putting a c230 badge on a c55 or putting a SLK280 badge on a SLK55.....

it will be fun when I pull away from those who think that it was fun to mess around me on the road. :p

Eh, whats the point. You can put play alphabet soup with the back of your car, but once they look under the hood your screwed. Then you will look like a moron. Thus-bad idea. And i agree-No emblems or stock emblems are the best. And msfamilia- i thought that was very funny, Redefining the word "Sleeper":)

i got AMG body kit on my C320 with NO Emblems i remove all mines i will let the viewers decide on what my car is.
i completely agree w/ Wavey Kat. Let other folk try to determine what kind of car you have...adds to the mistique i say.
a lot of people are fans of the "sleeper" cars these days...you know
the 1st that will spank you when you think it doesn't look all that.

People put fake badges on their cars for the same reason some women buy fake Louis Vitton purses, to feed their egos and try to impress people.

Trouble is that people who really know MBs or those who really know what Louis Vs look like instantly know the offender is only trying make themselves look more wealthy than someone else when they really can't afford the real thing.
