    No. Just no.

    You may as well double badge the front while you're at it.

    Didn't say that, I said "Which are often made from cheap shoddy plastic !!" not that it was OK to fit a genuine one :rolleyes::)

    SLK 230 or SLK 320 being sought.
    I have noticed just lately that the SLK 32 'wanna be's are removing the 0 from the boot lids on their SLK 320's.
    They are probably part of the same brigade that just buy an SLK 320 and do nothing at all to them but use and possibly abuse them as well as not getting them serviced and totally ignore the advisories that have formed a part of a pending horror story and then expect to get top money when they off-load them on to the unsuspecting potential new owner.

    I came across a double badged SLK 230 recently with Barabbas badges on the grill and the boot lid.

    I suppose his "buyer's" point of view is "Why buy the car, when I can just buy a badge?" But I think people who stick up-market badges on their cars are just wasting money because they're only fooling themselves (and making a fool of themselves in the process) :D !
