No one has tried to steal my emblem yet, not in a big city like Vancouver for over a year and not even in a smaller town for about a year. Maybe they won't but should I take the chance of having it look nice with the normal emblem or save myself the hassle and just get the flat badge?

I live in Vancouver so I'd probably have to order one of those in or something right?

Hi All - I had a choice of a 2012 C180 Classic and C180 Avant Garde but chose the Classic because I prefer the star on the hood ( the Avant Garde was on the grille )
Now it seems that ALL new MB's are coming out with stars on the grille - result is my car is starting to look old and outdated!!
Question - does MB still bring out new models with the star on the hood, or am I now destined to drive an " old " Merc???

Of course they do. --> Mercedes-Benz -The new S-Class - 2013

You should enjoy looking at the star on your bonnet every time you drive it.

Welcome to the forum.

Thanks for the welcome DrX, and also the info on the new S series. At least my C180 Classic will not look old! If anything some may mistake it for the S Class not knowing any better! And yes, I love seeing the star. The one on the grille has actually put me off MB a bit, but like most things I suppose it will grow on me.

Regards and best wishes

Some conversions just do not look right, and even worse when sporting both, the old rule was that saloons had the bonnet star, and coupes had the grill star.

For me it depends on what you are going for. In my S-classes it was plutocratic luxury and taste. Only the hood star would do.
In the SL it is sporty carefree driving. Only the grill star will do. Also I cannot imagine a 107 with a hood star, it would look strange.
