That's just a dealer or junk yard part, not expensive and bolts on the hood.

A car would show appreciation for preventive maintenance by never leaving his owner stranded.

Defensive Driving is never having to say you're sorry: a true love story between man and machine.

all the dealer /online retailer/junkyard parts are OEM. they are fixed. they cannot be removed if i want to go thru a carwash, or park my car in the city where kids rip off the emblems.
unless i am mistaken, Mb does not make a magnetic twist on/twist off removable emblem??
i found one finally today on ebay, i was hoping it might be available in
USA not from germany. very expensive...

Hi, my indie offered me one of these last time I was in but I declined. I am happy to give you their info should you wish to contact them. I'm not certain they ship but most likely they would. Send me a PM for their contact info.
