Thank You very much Kim Your help is invaluable. I'll be ordering one of those badges from ebay soon, I hope that it will look as good as Your's ( or maybe even better )

I changed out my 107 flat hood badge for a newer sleeker one. I think from a 129. I had to mod it a little, and glue it on, but it looks MUCH better! It's the same kind as on my 216 now...

Current Stable:
2012 CL550 C4 4MATIC Coupe


Past cars:
1991-560 SEC AMG - Coupe - 199/261 - 300 HP Custom Built Motor - Highly Modified Coupe.
1990-560 SEL - Sedan - 199/261 - Stock. Euro Headlamps & Wipers
1987 560 SEC Black/Tan
1988 420 SEL Champagne/Brown

Normally I prefer the upright star but that looks great. Whats happened to the little forward facing badge on the grille under where the upright star would be?

Because the flat badge has the exactly same pattern on it as the forward facing aluminum casted badge, I didn't wanted to give the car too heavy look, you know what I mean - too many stars in one place is a bad thing (unless we are talking about different MB models on one parking lot ).

I would call this the "temporary" look. When - in some time - I'll put an AMG styling package on the car - the forward facing aluminum badge will be back on its place, and flat badge will be changed for AMG one

Of course, it was another purpose for removing the forward facing badge - it was damaged, and sticked with glue to silver grille frame... I've replaced it with inox bolt, which was handly fitted to this place

I say thumbs down. It doesn't have any presence.

Does anyone know if they sell one for an SEC in a Pre-merger AMG style minus the ///AMG.

Just when I thought I was out...they pull me back in
