Maybe he's just trying to make his W202 appear less nickable?

I'm thinking of re-arranging my C240 badge to be a C2004 for next year!

Its all down to personal taste and plp can do what ever they want to their cars....

I personally prefer de-bading because in my own personal opionion think that it looks neater/cleaner - my Father used to own a CL600 and had it factory debadged to make it look tidy....

Once saw a Smart badged as a S600 (proper Merc badges) - not sure if it was wishful thinking or simply a pun regarding engine capacity.....

I know they made a C200K W202 for a while, maybe he had a factory special 5 door CLK ;-P

The worst thing has to be when people but badges back on, but in the wrong place, eg to high up etc...

Remember a few issues ago in ME magazine, someone had sent in a picture of a E000

I'm sorely tempted to swap mine around so it's a E820.

But knowing my luck I'd **** it up and end up with an E028 :eek:
