I was thinking the same thing. I think that badge would look slick on the side of the car. Probably have to find someone in Europe to send us the badge here in the US... PM me if you ever find a place to buy one at.

I agree! The EDM models look so much slicker than ours! Does anyone know? I have searched far and wide as well...

Why not just go to your dealer and have them order the badge?

The 300 comes with the STAR on the hood. The C350 Sports comes with the badge on the hood.

Looking at the car there can be no doubt the badge looks better, but sitting behind the wheel and looking over the hood, I love the STAR for "guidance". It just feels better.

I couldn't make up my mind, so the dealership gave me both. But I didn't get any gift certificates like our friend did.

In German the word is refer experimental, innovative, radically new.

In Oz we get the badge's on the Avantgarde (of course) & Avantgarde with the AMG package which is the same as the US Sports model.

Haha

You're joking? +1

Well, different strokes for different folks. Me, personally, I try to take as much off my car as possible, badgeless.

And, before I simply let it ride as being up to personal preference, I gotta ask if our cars can wear the avantgarde badge with honesty. What I mean is that in Europe (and maybe canada?) they have a sport package or option that is named (i think) avantgarde. You activate it by a button which is located in between the seat heater buttons (e.g., in the USA, that big slab of plastic expanse bwteen the two). So, if avantgarde is the name of the option and we don't have it, then it is kinda like those guys who put an "amg" badge on a non-amg car, or an "M" badge on a stock bmw. If you can wear it with honesty, then its up to personal choice. If you wear it without earning it, then I'll laugh at you. The guys over at mymbonline.com have a whole thread on "poser sightings" under their "sightings/spotted" forum, it is hillarious: http://www.mymbonline.com/forum/viewtopic.php?t=1172

'08 W204 Avantgarde AMG package
Europe :

W202 = Classic - Elegance - Sport

W203 = Classic - Elegance - Avantgarde

W204 = Classic - Elegance - Avantgarde

And the Avantgarde AMG package offcourse

@ 430752 : Avantgarde isn't an option, i think the button what you mean is the sport agilaty control.

+1. It's sport agility, not Avantgarde.

alright, if avantgarde is just the european way of saying sport (e.g.-avant or estate for a wagon), then have at putting that badge on your new w204, provided you bought the sport version.

The avantgarde is not a sport model, just a different trim. The AMG sport package can be ordered on the Elegance and Avantgarde models in the rest of the world.
The W204 Avantgarde models are called Sport in the US because they have the AMG sport package included.

No!
I have an avantgarde (its only cosmetics interior and exterior and ride tuned) and AMG pack but you could also pick the sport suspension or the advance agility pack... so avantgarde its a sportier than elegance or classic models, but its not the sport model, its basically estetics, in and out, than you can get sport equipment.
