There is actually quite a nice amg replica based on a cls 500 i think on eBay that looks nice. That said i have never been one for adding badges to a car, so far me yes have the bumpers etc but don't badge it up as the amg

Yeah I'm not a fan of AMG fakery hahahaha Same as putting a sportier badge on any car.

That said though the 500 isn't exactly slow. I mean it hits 60 in under 5.5 seconds so nothing to be ashamed off!

Yeah that's my thoughts, I can imagine a CLS500 sounds pretty epic with a non OEM exhaust.

I can say this a million times and still mean it. They got this car looking right. It's beautiful. The new shape one looks awkward and bizarre.

Stunning this one is though.

I love that, Alex. I love the way the swage line emerges from the curve of the front arch. Thats class.

BTW - your mats look great. Mind if I ask what they are and where you bought them?

Cheers
