    Cool Fs: Custom made Pre Merger AMG vanity plates

    Hey guys so I am making custom pre merger amg vanity plates. I just finished the the design based off of a old w126 amg layout brochure and I trying to see how many to produce.

    The plates will be euro spec size. If anyone has an exact area of where the mounting holes for the w124 should be or any preferences for the bulk order let me know. The plates will be black with white lettering. I can probably do smaller us size plates too and I can see if I can do aluminum plates with raised lettering.

    I can and may in the future also produce other plates such as renntech, carlsson, etc.

    Once I get a list of who is interested I will update on the thickness of the plate and other info.

    Plates will be 50 usd each and shipping will vary based off of location.

    I'd be interested in an aluminum with raised letters (or perhaps even not). I've been looking for one for my S55 for years, ever since I bought the "AMG 45" book. Every now and then they pop up on eBay. I have a Euro plate on my 500E, and would love to go Euro on the S55. For now, it has the US size "AMG Driving Performance" plate up front.

    It may be worth it to buy a Euro plate off eBay, just so you can see where the holes are. Installation on my 500E was simple.

    GL, and please keep me posted.

    Cheers,

    maw

    P.S. sample pics below... beginning with the W221 65 AMG, I noticed MB putting euro plates in marketing photos... the Driving Performance plate I found on eBay somewhere, the old one was just the logo... the 500E one is obviously my custom text speak

    Thats awesome ! This is exactly why I wanted to do this as your dont come by the original ones that often and if you do they are cery expensive. I have a set of euro plates at home which I had mounted im going to test fit them again and see if these holes are correct.

    I think it's a good idea. I would be interested, but unfortunately the state I live in, MA, requires a front and rear plate on the cars.
