I have a question I would like to ask mustang owners.

Hello I'm here to ask a question about what mustang owners think about other cars being badged with the 5.0 badge even if they are a 5.0 engine? Like for instance I drive a 2006 Mercedes-Benz CLS500 which does have a 5.0 and say I badged it with the 5.0 badge (I am not going to do this) how would y'all feel about that. I am not looking to argue I'm just curious how y'all would feel. Thank you.

After reeding the comments I'm actually surprised to see that people are accepting of this considering the history of the 5.0 and ford. Good on you mustang owners

Whatever sets one free. Just don't put a 5.0 badge on a V6. Don't want to be a poser.

Heck Ford badged the Fox body Mustangs as 5.0's when they were only 4942 cc's so go for it.

I saw a v6 like mine with a 4.0 badge in the 5.0 style.
It just looks ridiculous.

It all depends on what that owner does. If they put a 5.0L badge on a 4 cylinder Focus I would think. Dayum, who're they trying to fool.

I think I'd shrug and say "why." Mercedes already had the engine size encoded into the model number.

Just yesterday I saw a "Prius" badge on a black Infiniti G37. Along with that, it and all the brightwork was blacked out. I was just left with the question "Why?". Putting a 5.0 badge on a Mercedes, even if it had a 5 liter engine, would leave me with the same question "Why?". If you do, go subtle. Like only one badge and probably just on the rear end. And my opinion is worth just what you paid for it.

If I can do 0-60 in 5.0 seconds, can I put a 5.0 badge on my ecoboost?

This discussion reminds me of the SUVs with giant rims that have badges bragging about their rim size that they think compensates for their small peckers.
I saw a Miata with stock rims that had 14" decals on it. That was funny.
