So took matters into my own hands and ordered the one off the G wagon and put it on - now looks right!

They also are available on amazon...looks nice tho.

Honestly, I hate all the badges on the cars now. "V8 biturbo 4matic space thruster thingamabob look at me"

That being said, yours is very subtle and tasteful and looks good. I just generally let my exhaust do the talking.

Probably because it's just a ****ty C Class...

75 grand and you don't get the stupid emblem - now you get it in like 12 places on an CLA45 AMG for 49 grand.

I actually bought the knock off one first and it looks like **** (they actually represented it as real in a mercedes bag and all - AMG was crooked), got my money back and bought a real one.

CLA is a step up though.

It has 2 small holes to screw it on but would require taking out the grill to drill the holes, so I just used some 3M emblem tape to hold it (it is L shaped). Part number is 4638170200 and I ordered it from ECS.

Nice find!
I'm not too big on grill badges. I removed the one on my M4.
But that looks pretty good.

I typically remove what I see as unneeded badges. I've removed my fender "6.3 ///AMG" badges already.

It terms of Mercedes class level it's supposed to be one step up.

I am confused, are you saying the CLA is supposed to be one class up?

Hierarchy from Mercedes is:

CLA45 < C43 < C63 < E63 etc

Don't pretend like people don't debadge their c63's :P


Most high end cars in Europe don't come with rear badges at all.




Also roadkillrob is right. CLA is down a class, not up.

BLKROKT 12-09-2016 10:19 AM

I thought that it was obvious that the CLA is above the C?

Some say the CLA is a rebadged S-class


:nix:idk

kickinrocks 12-09-2016 10:37 AM

Yeah I think the "A" in CLA stands for awesome :zoom:

I stand corrected. Starting prices on base CLAs is about $5k less than the comparable C class.

Adi-Benz 12-09-2016 11:04 AM

Wait you were serious?


Oh.


:O

Jasonoff 12-09-2016 11:13 AM

I don't think has anything to do with base in the class type.

I thought class levels per vehicle type went in alpha order? Maybe it changed?

Same thing with BMW and their Series numbers.

In most of Europe debadgin is an option code from the factory, we order our company cars in Europe all debadged so that no one can be jealous when they got a C180 and someone else got a C220 - obviously a debadged C63 is not easily mistaken for a C180 from the back though!

chrisridebike8 12-09-2016 11:49 AM

Yeah. I debadged my car. I only have the star on the front and back. It just looks cleaner to me. All my cars are like that. I figure that if you know it's a C63, then I don't need to tell you with a badge. If you don't know, then you probably don't care and a badge means nothing. Plus I hate the buildup of dirt and stuff you get around badges. It's much easier to keep things tidy with no badges.
