Is the hood emblem on the sedan and coupe the same size? Can you fit the coupe badge on the sedan?

I can get a coupe badge from a local scrap yard for next to nothing. It's virtually brand new. If possible, I would like to have it fitted to my new car (due 07/07/03 [:D]). I don't know much about the C-class as I am only getting my first one now. Though I'd better make sure it will fit before buying it.

In my opinion, the flat badge makes the C-class sedan look a lot sportier.

I suspect that the coupe badge is slightly bigger. I've asked the MB dealership to find out for me, but still haven't heard anything from them (alas, it has only been a week [:(]) The scrap yard owner assured me it will fit, but he does not seem to be 100% sure.

Thought I'd ask you guys, since you seem to know more about Mercedes than Mercedes themselves!

I know there is hood emblem for the C on www.formymercedes.com

If the coupe badge won't work, I'll order this one.

Thanks,

JG

Different, yes, but are they interchangeable?

Hi Chuck,

Thanks for your reply.

I know they are different. I've seen a photo of C sedan with a flat badge iso the upright star. It looks quite sporty.

Wrt the welding of the doors...
While at it, I might as well cut off the roof and make it a CLK cabrio [8D]

The mounting points underneath are different. I would recommend going with the replacement part from formymercedes.com instead. [:)]
