I dont think so hin...it would cheapen the brand if they did.
My 'HAPPY' logo was placed by the dealer, the largest overseas car importer in my nation that also carry the brand of MB brabus, all Italian models and nearly all exotic and luxurious cars in the world. Are they nuts trying so hard to cheapen the brands they are carrying? Since when MB starts suing everyone for cheapening their brand due to logo swapping? If the brand owner doesn't even care, why there are so many narrow minded 55ists, 63 ists and AMGists got so excited about it? Are they some kind of 'racist' or what?
Henry, for those that love these cars, and cars in general, it is a sin to pose - mark the car as something better than it is. Is your ego that weak that you are trying to impress the world by lying? (meant to be retorical and not a personal slight)
For those narrow minded car lovers who view logo swapping as a sin, then to them whoever modify his/her car will be a public enemy unless they LIKE the modifications. What are they having in mind? They though by buying one piece of SLK 55 AMG engine they can demand the entire world to comply to their narrow minded view?
Talking about ego, those people who bought just a piece of 55 / 63 / AMG engine now claim that no one else in the world can use the 55 / 63 / AMG logo except THEM and those approved by THEM. How weak is their little ego trying so darn hard to prove to the world how PROUD they are to OWN the 55 / 63 / AMG logo (as if they really own it?!) and, become the famous 55ists, 63ists and AMGists by ordering everyone to comply to their 'IST' rules or they will attack the the 'law-breakers' by whatever way they deem fit. It seems like the car owners have no right and no say at all, how they will like to decorate their car according to their own free will! The 55ists, 63ists and AMGists are the LAW.

Ok enough of all these, I believe most people here are civilised open-minded good Samaritans. Lets hang around and see how we can help and learn from other SLK owners. Cheers
