    I read the title and, to be honest, thought Oh God No.

    But giving you credit, that actually works very well.

    Well done for being different pal, thumbs up from this end.

    you could do what i did and buy some proper Audi centres, grind off the backs and grind down the Merc badge on your wheels, then silicone them on....looks far more OEM than those gash stickers
