Replace Hood Ornament with Steelers Symbol

Does anyone sell a Pittsburgh Steelers Symbol hood ornament that could replace the star. I have an E-Class and I am a die-hard Steelers Fan and would love the 3 diamond symbol of the Steelers as my hood ornament? Does anyone know who creates custom hood ornament replacements?

This would be a violation of code 6786, section 23, paragraph 5 of the Mercedes Benz Code of Ethics.

I would tend to agree that it is a bit gauche, but the beauty of owning a car is getting to do with it what you like.

I made my own hood ornament although it still is pure MB (plus some miscellaneous hardware bits). Here's a link to the post I did on it: http://www.benzworld.org/forums/w210...-ornament.html

If you are not looking for something that "stands up" like the star there is a good likelihood that a similar procedure could yield a drop-in ornament. But then you have to worry about Jets and Pats fans vandalizing your car...

The real question is how much you are willing to pay to have a one-of-a-kind hood ornament?

Take care and enjoy the ride,
Greg
