the w204 is a dated platform the CLA platform is pretty new

just because something has a massive engine in it doesn't mean it's better then a new platform

w204s will become practically worthless within the next 5-7 years because big cities are putting in pretty strict laws about emissions and you'll have an extremely hard time selling them to someone that isn't an Asian

and for 75 grand you're lucky we get what we got honestly

and this isn't a car you want to keep long-term out of warranty even if you have cash to blow
Lol not sure you know what you're talking about bro. My 2013 c63 with medium mileage is worth at a dealer what a NEW CLA45 would cost basically. It is a newer platform but it's also a cheaper platform. Mercedes intentionally made many things cheaper as to keep the CLA within the <$40k MSRP. Read the reviews, they mostly talk about how cheap the ride and suspension feels for a Mercedes. CLA is definitely a lower line of car than the C class homie, not really an arguement there.

yeah but your 2013 c63 lost 50-60% of it's value in 3 years, probably a lot more then what a cla45 would lose in the same time period

plus a cla comes with 60 less HP then a w204 c63 with half the cylinders

2013 c63s aren't worth 55k+ ...infact if you go on CL San diego they are going for mid 40's then in 2017 they will drop to low 40s ..late 2017 you'll see 2013 c63s going for high 30's

2012 c63s in your area are going for low 30's already

like i said we're lucky we got what we have for 75k-ish

Lol I'm not sure what your point is...since when does depreciation equal a lesser level car new. You gotta compare apples to apples homie, new vs new. A new Kia optima is probably now than an sl55, does that mean it's a better car?? Lol. And now expensive cars depreciate faster...an Aventador depreciates faster than a Hurican...still Aventador is their 'higher' car Lol. Lastly if you're going to try to quote stats at least quote accurate ones. 2013 c63s still go for low to high 40s in Good condition and mileage man!

Have you guys thought about putting a really little badge on a badge, on the badge on the grill? That would be amazing. Group buy?

I think you are leaving something on the table, sides and maybe bottom have room also for more badges!

Ok..... I just spoke to my supplier, and he can make this one. Only $199.99 but we need 1000 orders. I think it's hot. No mistaking it for a C250 anymore.

But that looks pretty good.

I typically remove what I see as unneeded badges. I've removed my fender "6.3 ///AMG" badges already.
Can we see a pic without the badges on the side profile? I've been considering removing these

Nawh that's garbage. Being mistaken for a C250 by rednecks in pickup trucks is the best.

You can always do this but on the hood, roof, trunk, doors, bumper...etc etc




I forgot to add, I NEVER drive my AMG without wearing my AMG hat, AMG Shirt, AMG Pants, and AMG shoes. Cant let people think I drive a normal C class.

No clue. Might need some compounding and polishing but if your car was well kept (and yours seems to be) it shouldn't be bad. Also, 3M adhesive remover wheel. Best thing ever for removing that old tape.

Thanks for the info. I have a 3M adhesive remover wheel. Car is in great shape so should be good. May tackle it this weekend.

Been wanting to do it but worried about sticking the emblems back on properly after debadging if I didn't like it but seeing your car the side profile looks super clean.

I didn't have the numbers faded in there however, I did have some built up funk around them.

As Chris said, I used my DA and some Meguiar's Ultimate Polish. Cleaned the area right up.

Hey guys,

Just wanted to let you know I've sourced some stickers for your AMG.

Now both people outside your car AND INSIDE can see that it's an AMG.

Applied as shown:



Minimum quantity 10, prices starting at $500. Shipped via FEDUPS.
