Last night someone decided I didn't need my hood star

Need to order a new one, suggestions? Anyone got a spare in good condition?

I always keep an extra on hand and order a new one when I use it. They are cheap to buy and take 5 minutes or less to replace. I can't believe the cars for sale that have the hood star missing. Makes me wonder what else is wrong with the car if they could not spend the $50 to replace the "Gun Sight"

It must be an East Coast thing. I've had 5 different Benze's in 19 years and never lost an ornament or know anyone that has.
(Or there are so many Benze's here that nobody cares?)

I bought one with the removable star. Helps esp when parked somewhere sketchy or when I put on a car cover. It was $70ish almost 10years ago

I ordered one through my local dealer for just under $50 and had it the next day. If you get to know your local dealership parts manager or assistant manager they will frequently work with you on pricing.

Mine I think is weakened by the use of the car cover. I had just replaced the hood star on my first S500 before it was totaled. When I went back to the junkyard to get my stuff out of the car I removed the hood star and took the floor mats.

Sorry I didn't see your post sooner, as I have a "gold" star from my '95 S500 I took off the car to put a chrome one on.

I just remembered, The Hood Star from my first MB was used as a replacement on my best MB, myS600.
