I searched the forums and found the info I wanted regarding obtaining mileage badges. My question is, Does anyone know of any links or have any photos where I can see what they look like?

Thanks,
--Craig

Craig, I just recently got a scanner and I am still learning how to post pictures. However I'll try to describe them to you. Just picture the classic MB badge, except the high mileage badge doesn't say Mercedes-Benz on it. At the bottom it will say, for example, 250,000 KM. Then it has 2 wreaths like the MB badge. In the middle, of course is a star, with a "peppled" surface behind it like the MB badge. When I sent for the application to get my "250,000 KM" badge, they sent along a pamphlet showing all 3 "awards". In the pamphlet it showed the 250k one to be in silver/blue and the other 2 in gold/blue. However when mine came in the mail it was gold/blue. It is very nice looking. There are 2 screws that go throught the face of the badge and are held in place with 2 nuts and a plastic backing plate that you fasten on the inside of the grille. They also sent me a certficate, BTW, on very high grade paper, stating in German "Congradulations to 250,000 KM. for Mercedes number....... I forget the exact wording. When I tried to translate it using "Babblefish", (wife did this for me) it comes out being worded funny. Like I wrote above, it coes start of saying "Congradulation to 250,000. It's like there is supposed to be a name, ie; mine, listed after that. However, it immediately states in big gold numbers 250,000 KM. Either way it's very nice. Also all of this was free. It only took 2 1/2 weeks from the time I sent in the application to get the "award".

Its just like rick says. I got the 250,000km one too, but mine didn't come withn a backing, so my mechanic made me one for free with some scarp metal he had. I don't have any close ups, but I have a pic that shows it mounted on the grill, so it will give you a general level of how your car will look with it on. Email me if you would like the pic. When it comes you can put it on anywhere. I had a chip in the grill that had been bugging me and the badge covered it nicely.

I just looked at the picture I have and you really can't make out the details of the badge at all. In fact the whole grill is pretty dark. I will see if I can find a better picture to scan.

Thanks for the info

I appreciate your help. I emailed MBUSA prior to my first posting and they have already replied that they were sending the application form.

I tried searching Hack's pages of photos but didn't see any.
I will pass 288,000 miles in the next week or so. Since I bought the car in November, I have only had the opportunity to drive it locally. Next week I will take it for a 500 mile round trip. I am really looking forward to getting it out on the road now that I have made it road worthy again.(tires, brakes, Bilsteins in the front) Hopefully it won't be raining as I cruise up 101 past Santa Barbara to San Luis Obispo.

Aw shucks, I thought this post was asking for pictures of your cars with the high milage badges. It might have been enough to make me spring for a digital camera.

My 240D has three, a 200,000KM, a 250,000KM and a 500,000KM. She wears them proudly.

A note here; I just got the 250,000KM badge for my 300E a few months ago. It has gold trim, like the previous 500,000KM badge. My old 250,000KM badge on my 240D was a dull silver trim. I guess I got it in about '91 or so.

I guess MB must be getting some mileage(no pun intended) from this program since they're fancying up the badges.

Have a great day,
