High Mileage Badge

Hey everyone -- my car just ticked over 155k, and so I applied for the 250,000km award. I filled out the form and had a dealer verify the odometer, and I emailed the everything to the address given on the form.

I never got a confirmation email or anything back that it was successfully received, so I'm just wondering if this is standard or if I need to call someone. Anyone have any experience here?

It's normal you will get a box in the mail with the emblem and a letter.

When you reach a certain mileage Mercedes will give you a metal emblem/badge that ypu are supposed to mount on your grill to show off your high mileage.

It doesnt matter if you just bought the car and applied for the mileage award. They award the car not necessarily the owner

Good news is Mercedes Classic sent my award way faster than expected... the bad news is they sent me a 2,000,000km badge 😂😂

I didn’t even know this existed... I’m going to just put it on the car anyway.

That is amazing! That is a rare badge indeed. I bet if you put that on no one would believe it and would almost immediately start looking at your odometer
