Mount it on the grille, lower driver side corner. If you don't like it there, move it. It's not permanently attached, right? If you decide you don't like it on the grille, take it off and put it somewhere else.

Congrats on the award, the badge and the achievement.

Years ago, I received the 155K badge for my '82 300 SD which I installed in the grill. The award document, letter or the pin did not accompany the badge, so I'm envious.

Hard call on install location. I both like and dislike the grill installation. Enjoy where ever you decide.

I actually looked up "grill" vs "grille".


The metal work on the car is a grille.

Thanks for playing.

I'm at 147,000

I had been putting this off since last season but decided to look into the High Mileage Award Mercedes offers. I figured if I had one attached to my grill, it would become the focal point....rather than all the parking lot rash, dings and dents.

In any event, I thought I was eligible at 150,000 miles. Turns out, it is 155,000 miles or 250,000Kms.

So I need another 3000 miles. It might take me two more years if the weather is shit again this summer.

Anyways heres the application forms.

I'm at 147,000. Started at 142,600 in 2007, may take me a few more years.

the threads links to the mb pages for the awards are no longer valid.
a search on the mb.ca site returned no results, as did the usa site.

if someone wants to go searching for the updated URL or finds an alternative could they please post it here.
