    Brabus radiator badge on 451.

    Does anyone know how to fit a brabus 451 radiator grille badge on a standard grille?

    Can it be done...?

    I would think it should be quite easy..... if you release the bonnet catches and either remove or let the bonnet hang on the straps you should be able to access the grill.
    Although I own a 451 Brabus, to be honest I can't say I have paid much attention to how the Brabus badge is secured to the grill. It may be easier just to remove the grill to fit the badge.

    It seems that the Brabus grille is honeycombed and the standard one isn’t.....

    I think that’s where the issue may lie....?

    The brabus 451 badges are regularly added to the Roadster grill despite the honeycomb being the wrong gauge - just requires a little dremmelling to create a slot to house the protruding "slat" and then a dab of some appropriate adhesive (tigerseal, sikaflex etc.).

    Got to ask the question though, if you don't have a Brabus grill presumably you don't have a Brabus - therefore why are you trying to attach the Brabus badge?

    Or is it because he thought of it before you ?

    I used to have a Mercedes star badge on my 450 bonnet

    For some reason back then there was no logo on the front of the City Car (later to be named the Fortwo)

    cut off the tabs (if they don't fit through the grill) and use double sided sticky pads (black)

    mine's been on the forfour since 2010 like this
