I could live with that scratched emblem...it beats replacing several mirrors sheared off, any day.

I agree that $40+ for a replacement emblem is a bit high, so on a whim, last time I ordered stuff off of Amazon, I ordered Chinesium emblem replacements, front & rear, for $9 the set.

They came with two grommets apiece, and even have DE molded on the back (obviously German, no doubt), and look pretty good compared to the colorless wind&grit-obliterated badging left on my '01. I'll put them on today/tomorrow after it rains.
