On your mantle in the house. I just don't think they look right on our grilles. On the sedans, yes. On 107s, no.
NEXT!

I will second that. The award is pretty cool and comes with a lot of good stuff. But the badge just does not go well on a 107 grill.

Congratulations Nobby

I'll make a nice bracket and move it around the grill until I'm happiest.

Barring that....I like the spot on either side of the rear license plate.

I'm not opposed to drilling 2 holes for a permanent installation.

I'm thinking you should turn it into a belt buckle as you've probably had more hard miles than the SL.

Barring that, proudly on the grill.:thumbsup:

I'm not against the grill, just suggested an alternative with which I was familiar.

I like your rear plate idea the best though. That is far more visible to the motoring public, who should be cognizant of those leading them.

you know you're going to have to spruce up that grille before mounting the badge...
You have it backwards....I have to beat up the badge a little so it fits in......

Left or right of the plate? Or should I start another poll?

You'll either have to stop wearing that shirt for your photo ops or you need to wear it for ALL of them. It concerns me that I've become this familiar with your wardrobe.



Meanwhile...there's a search feature, yanno?

Grille Badge

High Mileage awards on a 107?
They were on sale.

So I bought a dozen.


What....they're not different colours?
