There are posts on the forum about how to remove the bonnet star and replace with a flat badge on most saloon models, maybe yours would be a reverse process? You could try a search on bonnet star or badge removal.

As an aside, would you change the grille insert so that you don't have the big star emblem in the grille? The only reason I ask is that I've seen a number of W201's and W124's that have put in a big grille Star but also have the bonnet Star and with the two together I think it looks kinda overkill, just my thoughts.

Individual idea.

PLEEEEEEASE don't have both stars though. As Steve says - looks wrong.


Maybe if you PM Shude he could do you a photoshop image of what it might look like...........

That's a really good idea. :) Nick has helped me recently by manipulating an image of my car with a couple of ideas I have in the pipeline. :D Shude (a.k.a. Nick) is the master when it comes to digital image editing, his recent threads in the general forum shows his skill to great effect. Hehe though I'm sure the last thing he needs at the moment is a queue of potential modders ;) :p

BBW top man thanks for the mock up have a banana :bannana:

see what you all mean about the 2 stars though...........might have to be a custome job as there does not appear to be any space under the bonnet for the normal star mount.

i'll let you all have a pic if i can find a away to do it tastefully........:rolleyes:

cheers

I removed the big star from the grill. It looks a bit silly without it though! Maybe if it was the chrome ML55 AMG grill it might look better?
