So how does the thinking apply to wearing a jacket bearing the logo of another marque?

Just curious cos I wear a Jaguar F Type jacket (that came with the new Jag) when I drive either car. Why? because it's comfortable and I haven't got a Merc one... yet..

The same applies to many products.
I once worked for the worlds most expensive prestigious champagne house the sole choice of royalty & the landed gentry the world over. Those of us lucky enough to benefit financially from the sales laughed at the gullibility of our customers, few if any knew the difference between a cheap or expensive champagne. Their priority was to be seen buying the worlds most expensive. I hid my distaste of alcohol & thank them because their millions allowed me to retire early & live very well indeed,... without the need for champagne.
So if can be on the right side of so called posh brands you have the last laugh.

I bought my SLK 320 knowing it was a 320 with AMG alloy wheels. I found the wheels had added AMG stickers as did the head rests and rear window. The boot (trunk) lid had been amended to SLK 32 AMG so I removed the 32 out of respect for those true AMG's - alas you can see the silhouette of the numbers if you look hard enough.

My C250 is listed as an AMG Sport Premium Plus and is styled by AMG and has an added AMG on the boot lid.

I know what a true AMG is as I have driven C63 and C46.

I love the brand and am happy to advertise it but by no means am I attempting to portray my fleet as being AMG's.

I had a Ferrari hat before I bought my F355. It was my motivation to save the penny's so that some day I could drive my Ferrari wearing my hat. And I did! I think what makes you a poser is your attitude and slapping AMG badges on a non AMG car.

Won't be long before some will be vying to have 'Duracell', 'Eveready' or 'Energiser' stuck on their boot/trunk

I have one of these on the back of the 55.



I don't believe that makes me a poseur.

Although the dropping a gear when they try might....

This reminds me of something. A few years back I bought a Ferrari lanyard from the F1 Grand Prix at Barcelona which I now use for my works pass & keys. My daughter commented that I shouldn't be using it because I don't have a Ferrari. My immediate response upon seeing the Virgin lanyard around her neck doesn't really need printing. Needless to say she didn't speak to me for a week

I now have a nice blue & silver Mercedes lanyard. It saves arguments.
