Understood and yes it's really to each their own. No right or wrong in this case !! I had a 2008 C300 and it didn't have the hood emblem and I felt it looked just right !!!for me a Mercedes is missing something without that Star emblem on the hood
i dont really think it has anything to do with age... its a personal preference in my humble opinion... lol
with all due respect, i humbly disagreeI had a '76 C-Class and it looked awesome with the tri-Star emblem. Given the sleekness of the CLA, I believe it would not look good on this auto. I believe it would take out the "sporty" and "growl-like" edge of the car.
