Or you could just buy a badge. I saw a CLS550 with an aftermarket AMG badge on the rear. I guess the owner didn't realize that AMGs have a badge on the wing or that the nomenclature for AMGs is two digits, not three like regular Mercedes.But for that price, keep in mind.... you get what you pay for. It takes a lot of additional features and money to make it more of a "true" Mercedes.
I saw one in the showroom that is near base. The only "options" it had was a Becker pre-wire and wood dash. The sticker was around $31K and change if I recall. It looked really cheap compared to an Edition 1 parked right next to it.As another aside, has anyone seen a base CLA yet? I haven't really looked around all that much, but I don't recall hearing of or seeing one that was south of ~35k. So I guess in that sense most of them are "true" Mercedes.
