High Mileage Badges

Hi, I am interested in recieving a high mileage badge and i noticed that on the application they want the dealer name and dealer rep. name. This car is used and i was wondering if i could skip that part of the application? Would they still send it?

RE: High Mileage Badges

I doubt it. All the dealership does is sign off on the mileage. It does not matter if you are the original owner.

RE: High Mileage Badges

I just sent in the application for the 250,000km badge for my car. Mike's right. The dealer information on the application is just so that somebody within the MB organization verifies the mileage. I use the term "verify" loosely, though. They don't really investigate anything - they may not even go out to your car to look at the odometer.

I think they realize that a high-mileage badge doesn't add anything to the market value of a car, so they just use the honor system when it comes to applying for them.

RE: High Mileage Badges

As far as value goes . . . earlier this year, one of the newer 250KM badge was sold on eBay for $100. Not bad for a free badge.
