507 Decal Stripes

I just fell out of my chair while on a call with my local dealer and thought I would share with you all.

I am about to pull the trigger on a 507 that has been fully debadged, including the removal of the 507 striping on the sides. After salivating over pictures of the 507 for the past year, I've grown to really like the decals and think it sets the car off nicely from the rest. Anyway, called the dealer to get a quote on replacing the decals and I was quoted...$1,135 PER STRIPE!!!! Unreal!!!!

Now that I am back up in my chair, I see replica decals all over ebay for anywhere between $30-70, but I am concerned that they aren't identical to the OEM stripes. Does anyone know if these ebay decals are the same? Anyone seen the quality in person? Thanks!

The one on ebay are just as good as oem. I have seen ebay cla45 edition 1 compare to OEM looks exactly the same.

Same sellers sell the 507 edition ones they all look good.

I think the stripes look good on any C63 and is a nice mod to do for a while and take off that makes a big difference but costs little $

I am missing the top pinstripe over the driver's side door. Didn't even notice it for a couple months. I've seen the repros, and would go that way, see what they look like, or....for my need, just get a pinstripe painted.

I would also think that any reputable body shop/modification shop could come up with a nice solution, unless you're looking for a bone stock match.

BTW, I'll be at LabelExpo here in Chicago the next three days and will talk to some converters and get their advice.

Saw this pic on the Facebook MBTrueNorth page. I believe the member purchased these from eBay.

I was thinking about it as well recently. Doesn't OEM PN# A204 989 0085 contain both right and left side ? Price through online parts it's around $800..still expensive

I got almost an exact 50/50 split on my poll as to whether I should keep or not.
It sounds dumb, but I have kept them simply cos I can only take them off once.
I can always do it later, but if I do it then regret it......

I just saw your thread, I think your C63 looks great with the stripes so you have there one more vote from me to definitely keep it ! :-)
