At what milelage do you get a badge and what proof do you have to show? My odo is at 282K approx but I'm sure it's well over 300K because I bought it from the PO with a broken odo (which I've fixed).

you drive to a MB dealer and they look at your odo.
you fill out the badge order form, and they send you the badge.
if you think you are over 300k, take your odo back apart, and roll the digits forward to reflect the miles before you go get your badge.
you already qualify for the 250K badge.

Why do you think Mercedes is doing this? Do they keep a data base of high mileage vehicles and is it available to the public?

I never thought about it.
just a cool bonus to driving an MB.

vstech, looks like I'm tied up. We just got the call awarding us the project. I guess I will have to give you a heads up once I can spare some time. I'm trying to chip away at some of my other repair items in the meantime. Door Check is next on the list.
