Can anyone recommend a vendor that sells the black hood emblem for the 170? Ebay is nothing but plastic [although they'll tell you it's aluminum].

Should I just get it from the dealer? I'm trying to find the emblem part number in the EPC and it's just not my day.

Thanks

Crap crap.. double crap.. CRAP..

Just got off the phone with the dealership...

1. all hood emblems are blue
2. all hood emblems are plastic

In the words of the parts department "oh honey you would have to get that aftermarket"

Never mind.. ugh.

I seem to remember reading somewhere that the black ones were brought out to commemorate the passing (or anniversary of ) of someone closely tied up with MB. But, plenty of after market black ones. They look better on all Mercs - except for blue cars :)

Yes,

That is the EXACT one, and the exact seller that I just left negative feedback for, and opened a dispute about. Aluminum my ASS.
What happened? It's not metal??? Cheap fake? From the picture it looks of a good quality!

P.S. Happy New Year folks!!!:bannana:

Preston's got one sitting here, too. It's way too big, but he didn't pay nearly that, I think it was $14.00.

update: After an ebay dispute, full refund was provided today in exchange for the removal of negative feedback.

+1 for the little guys
0 for the importers of plastic crap
