Anyways, you give 'em a donation, and they give you a real official-looking sticker to put on your rear window that shows you donated to the association. Of course people will put these on the rear window so if they get pulled over, Officer Dirty Harry notices the sticker and may let you off the hook with a warning.
The ricers in question may also notice this sticker and think "Uh oh, off-duty cop" and back the hell off for fear of off-duty cop noticing plate number and store that in the memory bank for "things to do" between guarding the Krispy Creme and gassing up the Crown Vic.
You could also consider other tactfully applied decals like from the NRA and a parking permit from the local mental hospital, right next to each other.

Yeah, that works too

I have put my heart and soul into my new C Class Sedan. I hooked it up by adding the AMG style package to it (wider M3-like tires) some rims and a few other gadgets here and there.

How do you stop people from "challenging" you on the highway, per se. I hope this doesn't sound arrogant, but I'm tired of riding on the interstate, enjoying my beautiful car, only to have some buster in his beat-up ride pull-up beside me, stare me and my ride down, only to speed off as if he accomplished something great by smoking me. And I'm not even racing, just cruising along the highway. It's like people feel like they made a great accomplishment and compensated for their crap car by smoking a Benzo. Despite you looking at them like they're crazy and not even increasing your speed at all.

Does this type of occurence happen to anyone else and if so, how do you uaually deal with it?
You can send the cash to:

5001 Benz Street
NY, NY 93593

My vote is still for the "old man" hat...

Or perhaps, a "baby on board" sign.. You could just poith to that and make a gesture like "sorry"..

Forget the police badge/ uniform stuff, this will get you in trouble. The solution is in your perspective of the situation. They are staring your ride down in admiration and then they pass on by. I m telling you I ve done it myself when passing a nice car on the highway. It s a show of their approval of your MB. The next time this happens just look back and grin or wave, I bet you get mostly wave backs or a thumbs up. In a month you ll be sending me the cash. Good Luck.

Solution: Sell your benz and get an antique benz.. That ought to shut them up and you still have a good quality car that looks nice.

Sleeper looks keeps everyone off guard.

That's why I put a C36 engine/tranny & 500E suspension into a W124 wagon.

If a car looks fast and modded, you'll attract them like flies to honey.

An "old man" hat and perhaps sucking on a pipe (not even filled) would probably give the impression you could care less . . .

You have one of these? I want to get one for that purpose - is it legal to carry one - isn't that sort of like impersonating a police officer?

They got em selling on ebay for cheap.. I wouldn't recommend doing that because if a police sees that.. boom boom..your in for a lot of fun I doubt it is legal to impersonate a police officer.. . but what you CAN do (don't take my advice) is if someone is revving up their engine or something at a light...roll down the window and hold it up..ahahahah

that would be fun to see the person's expression..

My problem lies with the soccer moms in the Suburbans or Expeditions edging me out of a lane position or speeding past me in the right lane, not ricer kids challenging me.

If you come up with a solution for mine, I'll come up with one for yours

cell phone talkin big cah drivin terminators

el presidente,

seriously you're talking crazy. don't even think about challenging them, they're always on the phone... kids screaming in the car... ice cream melting in the back.. all sorts of issues. don't even play if you value your life. not even your old man hat can save you. avoid them like the plague.

My problem is with the officer in the cruiser beside me at the light when I'm in the SL 600. The "I dare you look" is tough to ignore.
