How do you guys feel about the Mercedes emblem on the front of a smart?



Looks cool but are you that guy. Or does the smart have enough Mercedes DNA. to do it.. FYI. I'm not one of those guys who put an M5 badge on a 528i..

Anyone have a pic of the rear de badged 453 model. Thanks

In my opinion, it actually looks good on the front of the 453. However, it is not my style to put extra badges on cars.

Just do what makes you happy. It is your car.

I get a hard time from friends for the Mercedes keychain I was given with my smart from the dealer... Not sure I want to deal with that at a more public scale... It's a Mercedes product but it is a smart car. That would be like putting Lexus badges on your Toyota or Acura badges on your Honda...

First thing I did was take the Mercedes keychain off..lol.

Good point..if it was badged in Europe as a Mercedes I would probably lean toward yes. Right now I'm neutral. Already asked my bros they laughed at me..

I've seen Acura's badged as Hondas because they sell them as Hondas in Japan..that's ok to me. Anyway thanks for your input..

Yea... i kinda prefer the Smart badge over the Mercedes one on the front. As for debadging.... never been a fan. Taking off crappy little sticker-style dealership branding/badges, yea. But taking off the actual CAR badges just never looked right to me.
