How do you go about getting a badge? Who do you write? Do you get a badge every 100k?

I have an old 1990 190E right now (third car) that I used to have, and now have back, that has 509,000km (~317,000 miles) on her. The engine has never been opened, but the top end is getting weak. Should have guides and seals, but the suspension is also bagged and there is just no point anymore in sinking money into the car. The trans is also original and I suspect might begin acting up at anytime.

Keep on Truckin' and Get Them Grille Badges!

My 92 400E just turned 200k also. But it's lagging. My 87 300SDL has 287k and my "new" 87 300TD just rolled past 375k miles. I figured a couple of months ago that my average car has more than a quarter million miles...

Oil and filters, oil and filters, oil and filters, ...

You can get grill badges using a form from the dealer (and MBUSA online?) for free at 250,000 km, 500,000 km and 1,000,000 km. That works to 155,000, 310,000, and 621,000 miles. There are also nice certificates that come with them for your wall.

Hello Gerry
do you have the MB references for the badges 250,000 km, 500,000 km and 1,000,000 km, I am living in Europe and I would like to order the 250000 and later the 500000 from the dealer, here apparently they don't know.

Hello JamesDean,

the odometre seems to be brand new, has it been changed?
