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?I dont think so hin...it would cheapen the brand if they did.
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?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)
According To the AMGists, your are a poser because your don't have the hand-made AMG engine with some name crafted on it, your don't have the AMG brake systems .... etc... food for thought...
what if you have the Sport Package on your R172... that includes the AMG wheels... they have the AMG logo on it... and if you have AMG doorpins, AMG floor mats as well... if you enjoy the AMG accessories, isn't your car AMG-ized? or is it an AMG poser at this point?
At least go with the AMG doorpins... I can't believe even the 2012 SLS AMG has plastic door pins. The metal ones can't weigh that much to make the car slower. Besides, if you wanna drop some weight off the car, it's probably easier to skip a few of those steak dinners now and then!
I don't care whether people think I drive a benz with AMG or not. To me, the logos are just decorative items made by MB. Most people on earth don't know about AMG unless they have plenty of interests in it. Indeed, most people don't even know what are the meanings of SLR, SLS, SLK, SL, SEC, CL, CLS, CLK, 55, 63, 350, 200 ... So who are the targeted people I am trying to pose? Those who know AMG? Definitely not! Even I can easily spot a "AMG-logo lover" (probably I just use this term) immediately by looking just at the brakes. How am I going to fool these experts?You obviously care enough to worry about making people think you're driving something you're not - on two different cars.
I'm going to get this image in chrome and attach to the right rear of my car, because I don't care what badge someone puts on their own car.
Whatever badge makes them feel good certainly does me no harm. This image would be very appropriate for me as it is one of my most used expressions.
P.S. Anyone interested in a group buy?:biglaugh:
