    561131CC-F2DA-4907-9A30-70077F138DC6.jpeg Today’s offering....the camera sign obviously means the owner is particularly fond of seeing the reaction to those admiring his E200 AMG Estate and huge power from the twin exhausts ! Didn’t get a pic but he’s also put on a Hannibal Lecter

    I wonder if that sign would just encourage the tail-gaters to get even closer to see whether there actually is a camera?

    Depends on the price I suppose, you could get them from Mercedes. When you fitted them Mercedes dropped the warranty to 100k miles from U/L.
    So I presume they were expecting more wear.
