Mileage badges?

I have seen a lot of older Benzes here in Germany with horseshoes in the grille, and I was wondering if it was something one could get as a way of expressing a certain amount of distance the car had survived or something.

I always thought the horseshoes are just for 'luck' while driving. to not have any accidents...

RE: Mileage badges?

If you take your car to the dealer you might be able to get hold of mercedes milage badges. I know that they used to do something like that in the 70's & 80's but have yet to see anything like that on newer cars.

Best advice I can give you is to check with your local dealer and ask if the offer is still on.

Even the Swiss have this thing for horseshoes on their grilles, but they are just for luck I guess.

Mercedes Mileage badges are still available by ordering it through the dealerships. The first is issued at 150KM. At the higher levels, a lapel pin is issued with the badge.
