The actual star part you used isn't 75mm, that is the center cap portion. The star you used is supposed to be ~72mm. I don't have the stock mesh anyway, so no biggie. Also, they sell sweet carbon fiber inserts for this one! Goodbye mesh.

Looks like 75mm to me lol. :nerd: Maybe I need better glasses. :surprise:

Sorry, was going off what I read. They said the backing plate was 75mm and the emblem itself was ~72mm.

So we have a winner! The W221 emblem fits great and is flat! It is just a few mm bigger than the original but fits in the depression nicely. There are carbon fiber inserts available to to in between the points of the star if you want (not sure how they would hold up to the heat), you could put a backer on there or just leave it open. I think I am going to try leaving it open and see how it looks. I doubt you will notice it. Emblem was $22 on Ebay I believe.
