Jubin,
Very reasonable cost for the bumper. Where did you buy it from?
Thanks for the info.

Nice to see you posting after a long time Jubin. I'm glad you have decided to retain the car. The car looks great with the new bumper now. Get those AMG replicas and youre done. Why dont you send the car for a detailing job at Rhyme and Rhythm in town. They are very good and quite a few members have used their services.

P. S Come over sometime

Jubin, I feel your anger and loss. Same thing happened the last time I visited Mumbai (rear star stolen). Try the Mercedes Dealers for replacements, they are not as expensive as you think (compared to other parts available from the stealers)

well the problem here is not about sourcing them
the problem is the front one has been replaced 4 times
and the rear one 3 times.! !

Man, it must hurt to have your badges stolen frequently! Suggestion : How about debadging your ride? Up at the front, you can go for the tri-pointed star radiator grill, and nothing at the back. That's surely better than replacing them ever so often.

nice idea sirjee but then it just doesn't end there you see
with car freaks like you n me and everyone on the forum
just the debadging wouldn't do
with that i'd feel i need new set of alloys
probably an overcoat
some more bling here n there
new interiors

so basically i end up investing so much money that i could buy 2 nano's

Dude

Congratulations on your ownership, but you know how the saying goes "All good things must come to end".
