When I started looking around for my "next" car last year. One of the cars that made it's way on my list was the Mercedes CLA45.. Part of the research I do before I buy a car is go on forums and see what owners/people have to say about the vehicle. The type of input you can't get from Consumer Reports or the Manufacturer's website. (That's how I found you @ssholes!) One thing about the Mercedes CLA that "blew my freekin' mind" was the available Illuminated Star emblem.


When Buick revealed The Buick Riviera Concept in 2013 at the Shanghai auto show, Smack Dab in the center of the front grille..... A red white and blue Trishield with a glowing blue outer ring (Buick, your on the right track, just the wrong train).

With news that the 2015 Cadillac Escalade will have an available "glowing Crest and Wreath emblem" in the grille and Scion released special 10th anniversary vehicles with illuminated front and rear Scion emblems. I see this being the next big thing that I need,,,,, that I don't need.

So, when I purchased my Regal The hunt was on for an Illuminated Trishield emblem. It seemed like they have an illuminated emblem for every manufacturer except Buick. The only Illuminated Trishield I found was on "alibaba" and it looked like "hot garbage". I did find a few cool illuminated Opel emblems for you Opel freaks! (this one is my favorite)


Now that the Mercedes CLA is for sale in the USA, I have seen a few Illuminated Star kits for sale and a few good pics of what I'm looking for in an Illuminated Trishield.....



Those pics of the Illuminated Star kit made me dig out the "used" 2012 regal grille I bought to play around with...(yeah I know)....


The Trishield taken out of the front grille........


Drill out a few plastic welds/rivets it comes apart.........




SO, If Buick or some aftermarket company can't make an Illuminated Trishield emblem that wreaks with the same class and sophistication as the Illuminated Star, I will be forced to make my own...

***Buick Customer Service***, please foward this thread to "The Powers That Be". Thanks Jessica:wub:

***Members***, Feel free to post your feelings on an Illuminated Trishield emblem....

Not sure what the MB dealer charges. The Illuminated Star is going for $300-$400 Dollar Dollar Bills y'all on the street/interwebs...

I need this and I needed it yesterday! No question this can be done. Someone on here has to know something. Side Note: The pic of pouring the champagne down the drain, brilliant! Well done.

Thanks, I try to sneak a little humor in all my posts...

is that a bottle of ace of spades? lmao
In the hood we call it "Armand de Brignac". (not my pic) You've got a keen eye Mr. Mayor. You can't buy that shit at Walmart, so I'm not interested.

This will be a great project!! I am curious how this turns out as well!
BB, my next vacation is in June, worst case scenario I make my own. I'll post pics.

i think that illuminated logos look ricey as all get out, but i admire anyone who is willing to make their own solution.

good luck! :)
jay, no offence , but I've been waiting to use this.......

I'm not sure if it fits the Regal. I also would only do this if they made it in white.

Too much bling for my taste.
