    "Mercedes-Benz 500E Handbuilt By PORSCHE" Replacement

    It appears that my "Mercedes-Benz 500E Handbuilt By PORSCHE" placard next to my dome light is fading. How is this supposed to look without the back lighting off? Is there a way to replace or update this piece?

    That appears to be aftermarket. Normally the seatbelt lights go there.

    Yeah, this is some kind of aftermarket overlay.

    No wonder I can not find anything about it.

    I recommend that you get a Porsche badge for your hood, and/or a Porsche license plate frame. It's better for letting the world know who built the car, because people outside the car can't see the seat-buckle light placard above the windshield.

    Honch, I could have sworn you had one of these for sale at one point.

    Somebody was making and selling these on EBay, you may want to investigate and see if they are still for sale
