"Look at me! I own a MERCEDES BENZ"
You could ask this 2500 times and get 2500 different answers, here is mine.
I like the black background with just the star on it, for your car. I suppose if it were legal, I would also contemplate having the holder removed, as many of the cars look much nicer without any plate on them at all in the front (Audi, Chrysler, etc.)
Having the star and "Mercedes Benz" on the custom plate is to me, redundant.
But, if it was a 1992-1995 E500/500E, then having one with the star and the lettering "PORSCHE" might work on a car like that!!! That'd be amusing but truthful, and would elicit knowing smiles or bafflement. You either get that one or you don't
I have no choice. In this state as in many, the front plate is required, though the law is frequently ignored. to go without is a ticketable offense
I have it mounted and with the MB dealer plate on it, in my car. It is the normal and original look
Personally, I think that it's a fine line there, and that you shouldn't be too self conscious about it, and be advertising to everyone that you own a Mercedes, by festooning it with decals, badges and custom frames or plates screaming that you do.
