    Is it a good idea to buy black letter badging on Amazon or eBay? They look a bit cheap and plastic and some of the reviews are pretty bad (double sided tape is too thick usually).

    Presumably the ones I would get from Mercedes would be better quality? Anyone know prices I'm likely to find?

    Any other options for getting hold of some? I'd need 2x V8biturbo, a CLS63 and an AMG.

    Hi, most, if not all genuine badges are of plastic just like the ones on eBay.
    Over the years I have purchased several from eBay without any problems.

    Got a quote for a full dechrome wrap and painting of the current badges for £300. Doesn't sound too bad.

    Most badges are also available in black. I was thinking of getting black E500 ones. £15 off EBay. Mercedes stars also available.

    As above. - I was thinking about leaving the stay silver, and just replacing the CLK350 badge with a black one off teh eBays.

    Depends on the car colour. Mine's white with a black carbon vinyl roof and dark tints, so I think the contrast with all black bits would work better than the silver bits. Also think the smoked tint light clusters would do it good.
