    FS: Replica MB Windshield Decals for 1990+ W124s

    The PO of my vehicle had the windshield replaced at some point, and I was therefore missing my rectangular 'a MERCEDES-BENZ product' decal. As has been discussed here many times before, the correct stickers are no longer available from MB. There is a replica available on ebay, but these are a bit disappointing. They have rounded corners as opposed to the correct square ones, and are of a two piece design (the text is printed on a clear sticker, which is then applied to a white backing). The originals were one piece.

    Needless to say, I didn't like either option; so I went about getting my own made. Gerry and Dave both helped me tremendously in the development process providing me with a sample decal, and feedback on the overall transparency of the decal. Thanks guys!

    I was able to work with a decal supplier to design a new replica, and are pretty happy with the results! Here is a close up of one applied on my car:



    The sticker has the correct rectangular corners, is of a one piece design, and is the appropriate dimensions, both in the size of the sticker, and the size of the text. The text is solid crisp and clear (The image above is coming through super-sized and at a low res for some reason, which makes the text appear jagged... it is not).

    I have extras of these decals that I am selling to board members for $6 USD + shipping (which is essentially a stamp, ~.50 cents). If you are interested, please PM me.

    If you have other questions or would like additional info, don't hesitate to reach out. Thanks for looking!

    Please mark me down for five of these. Will need cardboard in the envelope for stiffening; Priority mail letter size envelope is preferred ($7-8 for mailing).

    This is for an additional five stickers to the five I have, plus two eBay repops.

    12 stickers ought to feed my hoarding need well for the next 20-25 years. Someday these stickers will be worth big bucks.

    a777fan,

    Thanks for your efforts.
    Paypal'd for 5 stickers.
    If you can wrap them in cereal box cardboard and mail via 4-1/8 x 9-1/2 envelope, would be greatly appreciated.

    Cheers

    Can you fire me out a PayPal invoice?

    I'm good with the pricer/safer shipping!

    Glad this came together...my stash of originals was getting LOW....!

    Ha, I was going to scrape this off my E420 thinking it was an aftermarket sticker. Anyways knows if E320 came with this sticker or just the V8s?

    It’s been well-documented on this forum.

    ALL W124s in the US starting with more year 1992 came with this sticker. Also some 1991 124s had this specific sticker.

    All W126s and all 1986-1991 W124s had the similar “A Daimler-Benz Product” sticker.

    Didnt matter what engine the car had — if it was a US-spec car sold through the MBNA dealer channel, it had one of these stickers.

    Thanks Gerry and Stevester.
    A777fan@ it was great meeting you today and getting the damper for the center console.
    If you have a sticker, pls save one for me. No rush as always and COD.

    Were these stickers only on U.S. based cars? (I think the answer is yes as I have looked at Euro and Japanese W124s and the ones I looked at did not have these, yet all 3 of the US '90's MB's I had have these stickers)

    FS: Replica MB Windshield Decals for 1990+ W124s

    As I said previously, ALL cars delivered by MBNA through the North American dealer network had these stickers installed. You see them on 116s, 107s, 123s, 124s (thru 1991), 201s and 126s in “A DAIMLER-BENZ PRODUCT” form, and on post-1991 124s, 140s, 129s, 202s etc in “A MERCEDES-BENZ PRODUCT” form.

    These stickers are not found on non-US models.

    Gerry I know these stickers came in the owners manuals in w124's in Ireland / UK. Including the w124 200 we bought in 1987. A white sticker identical to what is in this thread. (They were not fitted to the car- but were nearly always present in the owners manual pack)

    I have seen dozens if not HUNDREDS of 124s and 126s in all countries of Europe over the past 20 years and have NEVER seen one of these stickers mounted to the windshield.

    I had not heard they were part of the owner’s manual pack in the UK, however.

    Thanks for all the interest guys! I won't have enough on hand to fully go around if everyone who has currently expressed interest follows through with a payment, but I can procure more. There appears to be a bit of pent up demand here!

    I'll reach out to everyone via PM who has contacted me in the order in which your communication was received. I'll send you my PP address and your total price with shipping, and I'll then give you 2 business days to send me the funds. If you don't send me the funds within that window, I'll move your allotment on to the next interested party. Don't worry if you miss out on this round. I'll be ordering more!

    Watch your inbox for a message from me!

    A bit more info on shipping these bad boys. You'll have two options, barring an extremely large order:

    1) I should be able to fit these things safely into a regular sized envelope. I'll include a couple of index cards to keep things secure. This will cost you a regular stamp. ~.50 cents
    2) If you want to be super secure, I can ship with re-enforcement in a Priority Mail envelope. That will be $6.70.

    All funds in USD.

    Re: FS: Replica MB Windshield Decals for 1990+ W124s

    It looks like Triple Trouble needs a new production run of at least 250 to 500 stickers. You should be able to get some good economy of scale the more you order, making your enterprise more profitable.

    I would also advertise these on eBay, as well as on those "other" forums out there. You should sell out, right quick.

    HIGHLY recommend that you include at least one piece of cardboard (if not sandwiching them between two pieces), as three of the five stickers that I recevied prior were creased from handling.

    I'm not complaining. However, this is why I'm ordering more from you, but with Priority Mail flat rate letter with plenty of cardboard inside for $7.00 postage.

    Cheers,
    Gerry

    OK, so the current run is all spoken for. If I have stickers for you, I have reached out to you via PM.

    I have already contacted the supplier for more, and they are on the way. It should only be a couple of weeks max. I will make another post here when they arrive. In the mean time, if you have questions, please feel free to reach out!
