Thank you. Yes, I am. I've seen cars with the 4 fin, but personally I think the 3 fin looks better.

Thanks everyone! Media as far as how I got the star on, I found a nut in my garage with 3 pieces coming off it. (Kind of looking like the star on the grill). I just screwed it in till the piece on the star threaded and the the 3 pieces were tight on the back on the grill, so that the star was firmly on. I don't know if you can find these nuts at a hardware store or what not. I think I was just really lucky finding this laying around. I can take a picture of it if you would like? You might also want to try just finding a nut to screw all the way down so the star is secure.

The three doesnt look bad... but they dont make it in alllll black ;)

And I personally like the way the 4 slats looks with the bottom two slats in the newerish style bumpers. or non AMG ones.

Yeah had to raid the parts bun a few times in the garage to get the star to stay. Man that plastic spike is fragile, wish the star had the same attachments the one on my ML does, make me wonder how "genuine" that part is - not that that really matters to me. Ended up with a self threading nut, that got a little loose at the end, so backed it up with good old silicone. The star isn't going anywhere for now

Really surprises me that the star is given to everyone with no way for it to stay secure. Took me longer to find what to secure the star with than it did to put the grill and flat hood emblem on.
