Removed the GLA 45 and AMG badges on the rear, black out the star and chrome strip between the lights. Making a sleeper SUV.

Removing badges and blacking chrome must be an age thing. It would be interesting to see the age demographics of those that do or appreciate such mods.

Yeah, I don't really like the black-out thing myself, to include not liking black/gunmetal wheels, but I can still appreciate that a younger demographic prefers same and that a quality job was done.

I'm far from a younger demographic these days, 'cept for some lingering young at heart. ;)

Well, I am probably not a good example of the age thing, I am way past retirement age, but not retired. I have modded almost every car I have had, and have also drag raced most of them, I don't like the clutter of extra chrome and badges, it's also a European thing, lots of de-badged cars there.
Also, my GLA 45 came with the blackout package all window trim and front and rear trim are black from the factory, I just took it a little farther.

Also, with the badges removed, most teens with Hondas with fart can exhaust don't try to get me to street race like they did before.

I removed the badges and replaced them with black sticker-cut versions instead.

Now I am thinking if I should go remove all of them instead! Haha! Dilemma! :p

Your ride looks great, I noticed all your performance upgrades, do you race it?

Thanks! Finally removed all the sticker cut-outs at a friend's "insistence" :) So I am running it de-badged for now... Annnndddd I am getting more guys on the road wanting to see if I am a real 45. :confused:

I do take it out for spirited drives. But just changed back to my stock 20s currently because my AD08Rs on my 19s are shot...
