    Trunk 500e badge needed

    Hi all,

    New to ownership this year, loving every minute of it

    Recently had some paintwork done and the body shop threw away the rear badge that says 500e!!!

    They are trying to find me another one but thought I would see if anyone out there has one they would sell me?

    Hope you can help!

    OH, that sucks, how careless of the bodyshop, guess they did NOT have done any work, on a collector, veteran, special
    of any kind vehickle. The value of. even removed emblems as in this case when the stock of new 500E ones are Zeroed...

    You have to sue them if they can not come up with a replacement.

    PS I myself just ordered, today, a 400E Emblem, think it was a few left in Germany, under a 100 pieces total,,,

    Try contacting this guy....I have no clue who he is, but he seems to have some hard to find MB Emblems with correct factory parts numbers in OEM packaging:

    Since these went NLA, they are worth their weight in gold. The body shop THREW IT OUT? How incompetent are they?

    Another option is to fabricate a replica as shown here:

    Same but different, the newer emblem/sign has smaller # & letters so, yes you have to go for the older, to convert
