Need tri-star emblem

Good morning peeps... it's been a long time (years) since I've been on SLKWorld.
I hope everybody's well.

The reason for my popping in is that the tri-star emblem on my 2005 SLK55 AMG's engine cover is missing.
Anybody know where to get one?
My car just isn't running the same without it.

Much thanks,
David

Welcome Back

if you mean the star on the engine cover, you have to buy a new engine cover
or you can make one yourself as others have done

buy the emblem on ebay, amazon, mb parts sites and glue it on

Thanks for the quick response.
I believe I've seen new engine covers for like $400, was hoping to get out of this for much less.
I'll check out the other avenue you suggested, does it look kooky having that emblem glued on, or does it look pretty much the same?


Thanks,
David
