    Default Help me track down a reasonable grille emblem (Mercedes)

    So my front grill on my 2008 c230 has had the star emblem break off. Im having a heck of a time finding a reasonable replacement. Lonestar quoted me $130 for the star alone and another $60 for the housing!

    My online searches result in just the grille, absent of any star emblem. Any recommended sites for this type of part?

    That sounds cheap, to me. I doubt you can beat that.

    Or more seriously. Google says there's an online store in the USA that actually specializes in this stuff. Pelican parts.

    Check local junk yard and see if there is one that you can remove from?

    Not that I feel emblems should cost what they do, but my guess wouldn't been $700.
    And then 7x that for a Scuderia badge and 14x that for the Spirit Of Ecstasy.

    Surely eBay?

    If not, you will be able to find a light up one that spins there probably at least

    Dunno guys. That looks like a solid $20 dollar repair. Might need to be cheaper.

    ECS Tuning might have what you're looking for. Only thing is shipping might bring it to the same cost as local.
