    not sure if they are all the same, i think there is a slight differnece in size. I bought one for mine after it dissapeared but they are under £10 at GSF (German Sweedish and French) who have stores all over

    Deffo think they vary in size although some models do fit each other, for my w124 coupe GSF quoted me something silly like £3.50 + Vat! :D

    I should probably rent a Saxo to go to a GTG where Gollom would also be, otherwise who knows what'll happen to the s-class ;).

    I think there were some removable bonnet stars being sold on ebay where you could remove the centre insert and take it with you to stop low life's from ripping it off.....

    Thinking of what to get next
    Ive got 2 of those somewhere that i took of both cars and added flat emblems.

    Pm me if you want one. "CAUTION"...... They will make you go faster though as they were off both my silver + black E55.

    FOC of course
