Arizona = none. But we have an amazing amount of windscreen replacements here due to crap kicked up from the road. Anyone know what happens to the Mercedes signature sticker that features your engine builders signature when you get a replacement windscreen? I saw a MB with a sticker the other day that just said "Mercedes" written in script. It was obvious and looked terrible. Any way to get a copy of the original if you have the dealer replace the windscreen?

The ones required here are (1) road tax certificate (2) insurance certificate. The extras are (1) VIP Mercedes service (2) home parking garage (3) policeman good friend. The last one is most handy.

wow that is alot of window stickers.
In UK only ones required are Tax, and then if your car is over 4 years old it needs an MOT, which has to be shown on your windscreen as a sticker to show you have renewed it every year since.

The MOT sticker must be specific to Northern Ireland as it certainly isn't required here in England. Also, in England cars need to have their first MOT when they are 3 years old not 4.

Wouldn't you think that the UK would have consistent laws - oh no, that would be far too simple!

I have the original MB signature sticker, I left it there for the cool factor. , None required for Colorado, I had a couple while driving in Germany and Austria. One was an Austrian road tax, can't recall what the other sticker was for.

We don't have any required here in Germany to my knowledge (being on SOFA status). But there is an autobahn sticker, not sure what its for. Gero? Some insight, please?

Autobahn stickers are used in Austria, not in Germany. But we have green stickers because of the CO&#178; discussion. Some towns (Stuttgart for example) let you drive in the town only if you have it. And we have some for light tests. But you dont have to fix them.

The only I have is on a role under wool. 400 threecoat stickers on one role...
