      Mercedes AMG and RENNTech??

      The other day I saw an MB E430 in traffic; the trunklid had the following badges: "E430" on the left, "AMG" on the right with "RENNTech" underneath it. (AMG is the in-house MB tuner and RENNTech is an aftermarket MB tuner in Florida.) IIRC, AMG-tuned cars drop the zero from the model badge: in this case, it should have been "E43" with the "AMG" badge.

      1. Did this guy just put the tuner badges on his stock E430?
      2. If legit, what would RENNTech have contributed to an AMG-tuned car?

      Thanks for any insight.

      Tom

      An inferior complex Benz owner who couldn't afford E55, got AMG & RENNTech badge just to make him feel better. Or maybe he just loves those two tuners so much, he decided to put their names on his car to show support.

      Or maybe he was so used to doing this to his last car...

      He decided to do it again on his new Benz.

      I guesss the kid figured he couldn't afford a complete BMW or MB yet still wanted to show his Honda pride.

      Was this a Vocational School project car?

      for 5-6 grand you could buy a 92-95 bmw 325 or probably a comparable c class... which is probably less than the body work alone

      Well i guess at least to make it not as bad as it looks, the kid did turbocharge the car after all. Maybe the CRX has over 100 horses now with that big ol' intercooler upfront.

      Hell, people can do anything with badges these days. I saw once a S6000!!! No joke, 3 zeros. I wish I had my camera at the time. What's funny is it was a bone stock S430. Can you imagine going to the dealership for service and the manager says: "Excuse me, someone just stole your V12!"
