Who likes sexy backs?

I'm planning out mods for a '13 Lemans Blue E92 that I will be ordering. I've always been a fan of badgeless/shaved cars. I think it's clean looking. Found this blue E92 on this forum and did a really quick debadge and shave job on its rear end to give me an idea of how it will look on an E92 (yes, my initial plans are to go with the Challenge trunk). What do you guys think? I know it's not a look for everyone, but all comments welcome!

Shaved + Debadged:

I agree. At a minimum, I will be debadging, but I'm not sure yet if shaving the roundel works on the E92.

Mine is debadged if you want more pics - link in sig.

The shaving looks good also, but I like the roundel and its symbolism.

Beautiful AMG. I just drove an '08 E63 today that was CPO with 38K miles for 39,990! I am kinda contemplating it... but I just love my manual way too damn much. I love the E and C Class AMG cars, though.

I like the debadgded look even though I can't bring myself to do it, I'd leave the Roundel alone though.... Can't go wrong with the Challenge deck lid either

1) How wide are those tires; and
2) What make of car is that?
