De Badge; to De Badge or leave standard?
Hi all... my 320 came with a rear mounted "AMG" badge which had to go ages ago as my car isn't an AMG model, but I just De Badged my 320's trunk mounted "SLK320" Badge... just as I had done with my previous 230SLK "Kompressor" and its rear badging... I don't think it makes much difference if De Badged or left as Standard... but I like a de badged vehicle... down to personal taste........... but I did think that my 230 looked cleaner without the "Kompressor" call outs.
However If I did have model such as an R170 AMG32..or a later SLK with some provenance such as an AMG package or whatever, I guess it would be wrong to de badge a car like that!!
