Just received my 250,000 kilometer high mileage award for the old C280!

Sure hope I can get 250 more out of it!

Congratulations.
Our W210s are 40k and 50k from the 2nd star on the grille.
At some point you might start to wonder about things "lifetime" rated.
Who's life we are talking about?

95 clicks to go for the second badge on the W163 ML.
The W124 has its first badge and I have quite some some before the W211 E500 will get its first.

I wonder if MB would let me get another one. At the rate I am going she might take another 30 years to get her second rating...

On the grille.
The screws installed don't fit the grill too well. I wanted the badge up high to cover small ding and had to modify the screws or they would interfere with locking.
If you mount it lower, there is more space there.

I hung my first badge on my wagon today. Had no problems with it. Now, I just hope it stays on...didn't want to horse down on the nuts for fear of cracking the grille.
