Sourcing badges

I'm after a full set of badges for the '55 (star, AMG and SLK55) anywhere easy to grab 'em online?

Easiest way is probably ebay - there are loads of "knock off" badges that are identical to the original MB ones. Other than that, you are probably best off at your dealers, they are not horribly expensive if you want OEM...

Not interested in imitation-guess I'm off to the dealer! Not a big hassle changing them over?

Changing? I thought you already had a badged '55? In any event, it's not a huge deal to line 'em and stick 'em on.

My ones are looking kind of dirty.

How do you remove them?

Fishing line and then some acetone to clean the residue. Strong dental floss works as well, and a little heat helps.
