A Bit of Extra Badging ...

Hi All,

I've had my 2007 SLK55 AMG for just over a year now, and I love it. It has the performance pack, with additional carbon fibre trim in the cabin, which looks great.

However, I've always thought that the carbon fibre strip above the glove box always looked, well, a bit blank, and needed that extra something. I always wanted to put an AMG badge on there, but couldn't find the right size - the one that goes on the back of the car is too big, and just wouldn't look right.

I eventually found badging designed for the wing of, I believe, an R172, which was just the right size. The results are below - you will see that I made good use of the V8 part of the badge under the hood.

If anyone is interested, the part number for the badge is A172 817 12 15. It ain't cheap, though!
