There are a number of BMWs or Benzes around that have badges removed from the dealer, a-la the factory badge delete options overseas. Not to mention the popularity of removing badges. More rare in the US though, whereas the majority of BMW/Benz in Europe have the badgeless option.

I know what you mean though, I also notice that badges may be replaced but are not put back in the correct spot or not level, you'd be surprised how easy that is to notice if you pay attention to that sort of thing.

My Lexus has def been hit a couple times and the Carfax is perfectly clean. Most bodywork is easy to spot, really hard to replicate original paint.
