Hi guys,

Just bought a '98 E280 Estate last week and noticed that the E280 emblem is missing from the trunk door.

I see some available emblems on eBay but have no idea of the quality. Could you guys recommend these emblems are can I purchase OM somewhere?

Also, can you guys help me with the measurements, where the emblem should be exactly?

Thanks, Al.

The E should be 3 7/8 inches from the left, and the 0 should be 1 7/8 inches below the window. From beginning of E to end of 0 should be 6 1/4 inches.

Thanks for your help here! Is the E also 1 7/8 inches below the window, that is are the other characters in line with the window?

Do you know if the quality of the eBay emblems are OK?

I brought some lettering from a Malaysian and Chinese Ebay store a few months ago, but have not fitted them so I do not know how they will stand up in the elements, in my hand they look great, cannot tell the difference from the original.
I also brought a boot star, which was from 1m away, but I would not use it.
Cannot remember which store, but they only cost like $5 incl shipping.
I know this might not be much help...

Everything should be level...though the curve of the window above the E makes it difficult:

Again, thank you guys for your help here.

Just made an order on eBay for the E280 emblem.

One thing I noticed though is the spacing between the letters. As you can see on the following picture the E is too close to the 2.



Do you guys possible have the correct measurements for the spaces between the characters?

The overall length is 6 1/4 inches.

The gap between the E and the 2 should be 3/4 inch, then place the 8 between the 2 and 0 exactly in the middle. The photo you show is just for packing...the parts are all separate.
