Is anyone putting the flat hood stars on thier C's. I'm considering one that I found for $40 at autoclass.net. It's been a while since I've drivine a car with a bonafide hood ornament. What do you guys think?

Buy the flat star...

There's a high chance that the regular hood ornament will be stolen during the time you own the car. The flat star will save you some grief, and it looks nice, too.<p>

Flat Star

I don't know for sure. However the picture of the flat star at autoclass looks like it has a two-screw attachment from the back. It looks like anyone with basic screwdriver skills could handle it.<br>Maybe someone in the know could verify this for us.....<br>

Installation is really simple. However,...

on some models it requires removal of the hood latch from the underside of the hood. This requires a wrench or ratchet/socket, not just a screwdriver.<br>

flat star and grill with benz emblem

just saw the picture of the flat hood star and the "c320 sports grill" with benz logo in the center,<br>these two items would really make a superb look<br>and enhance the whole appearence, not to mention<br>lessening the risk of ornament theft, i could only see the pictures, any one that can give me this aftermarket e-mail address- i would really appreaciate it, also thanks for all those that gave me the tire stuff info, Syd turnbull<p>
