Anyone know where to get a new one - dont want to fund these lowlifes by buying one on ebay and im sure Mercedes will be a bit pricey...

A few years ago my ML got pulled off..

Went to the Merc garage for a routine service and they replaced it without even asking. No cost added to original quoted service price..

Give them a call.

Within the last 30mins some fecker has tried it again... didn't manage to get it as its all of 1 1/2 months old so stood up to them a bit, so as they didn't manage to get what they wanted they put a few lovely key scratches through the paint on the bonnet. ****.

Just hope they don't try to finish the job another night.

B'stds - it aint nice when this happens and I think we all know how angry you must feel.

Dont give them the opportunity again, stop buying the merc badges and put the original Skoda one back on the car...

Oi, it aint no skoda !

Found an alarm that you can put on it - thinking of getting it and watching for when they next come round - put a video camera and might be worth £250 from You've been framed!!

I know what you're thinking. "Did he fire six shots or only five?" Well, to tell you the truth, in all this excitement I kind of lost track myself. But being as this is a .44 Magnum, the most powerful handgun in the world, and would blow your head clean off, you've got to ask yourself a question: Do I feel lucky? Well, do ya, punk?

I know its a bummer for you but think of all those VW owners back in 1987. Thanks to the Beastie Boys it was a rare site to see a Volkswagon with a badge on the front back then. You gotta fight for your right to paaaaaaaaaarty!!!

I remember that! I also remember that Volkswagen dealerships were giving out free VW logos on chains to any kid who wanted one in the hope it'd stop them nicking the badges off customer's cars.

Died off very quickly that craze, didn't it?

Incidentally, why were the Beastie's fans happy to nick VW badges off parked cars to complement their ensemble, but you never heard of one nicking the pork-pie hat from a passing pensioner?
There were some stupid fashions around at that time. RUN DMC with their trainers minus the laces. 'Cops! Run!.......bugger. Help me up will ya ma homie?'

It's a WA2000. Walther built them for the Police sniper market, but they were so hideously complicated and expensive that they sold about...oooh, 3.

Main claim to fame is that Timothy Dalton as James Bond used one in 'The Living Daylights'
