Missing MB Hood Badge

My new 2016 MB Forester 2401W did not come with the traditional MB hood badge that is found on earlier Sprinter models. Also noticed the badge missing on other new MBS Foresters as well.
So what's up with that?

Go to a MB dealer if you're going to get a badge. There is a special glue, if the badge doesn't come pre-glued. Otherwise, you will have delamination issues.

It should have a flat MB emblem.

No hood emblem at all. Not a big deal but made me wonder if MB is now shipping Sprinter chassis' without their marque badge to FR.

To our knowledge there should be one on there.

That three point star in the grill is not what I'm talking about. It's the cool wreath badge MB mounts on the hood of their vehicles.

Let me check on a unit in the plant. Did you get that from Demartini?

Mine is "missing" as well. Since we have the full body paint option I'm not too surprised...
