E400 wagon, F-Pace 3.5, Yukon 2500*.0.
I murdered my wagon.

I bought this demo without the night package , grille or wheels I preferred so Ive made a few changes. Thought Id share in case others were pondering this look.

Grille from coupe.

Powder coated stock wheels

Debadged.

De chromed exhaust outlet.

I may need to do something about this gap.

Looks great I like it, some dark tint on the windows will complete the look. Here's mine. I'll post another picture when I get my custom Chrome Mandrus Millennium wheels next week.!!! I think though your wheels might look better with a black center cap rather than the silver one.

Now all it needs is a flashing red led lightbar up front and some 80s music.

Very nice. What did you use on the chrome? My wagon is white with the night package, which still leaves some chrome elements that I think should be black. I had vinyl wrap done on the rear chrome strip above the tail lights and I’m not sure it I should switch to paint or something else. Did you remove the rear badge to black it out?

Nooo to fish bowl look. IDK your stand on window tint, but this needs even a 50% tint to complete the look.

If you going to murder you car and debadge it, why leave the Mercedes star on in the front? Defeats the whole idea of murdering a car IMO. Black it out too.

I second the call for tint. I'm going 70 rear and 50 front in two weeks.

That's not even close to being murdered, black out the wheel center caps, tint the windows, blacken the grill, lose all the emblems, slam it, tint all the signal lights, black out the reflectors and fill the wheel wells with tire.

They said murdered, not serial killer.

Looks nice and stealthy. But I don't get the reference to murdered your wagon?

"Murdered" is a term to denoting the debadging, tinting, and generally neutralizing any semblance of a branding on a vehicle. Blacking it out. To make it as stealth looking as possible. Hence, I "murdered" my car.

I only assume that the term was used very loosely. But others are correct if you want to claim your car as murdered the taillights and the rear reflectors should be tinted most definitely the windows as I already mentioned center caps and for sure the front grill needs to black as night when I close my eyes. Otherwise car is blacked out and still looks good.

If he has distronic, the radar is the star, covering it may interfere with the radar.

You can use plasticdip or 3m vinyl tape without affecting the distronic at all. You're just covering the star, not the entire disc. Here is a pic by member Surfswitch who had it done.

Ok then, what does slam it mean?
And it looks pretty good, but a bit try hard for me.
