Question Silver exterior, black MB front plate, what about a frame now

Hello friends,

West Virginia only requires a rear license plate, and I finally decided to stop advertising my dealer and bought the black-background star plate. My questions are this:

1) Should I also buy one of their frames?

2) If so, which color do you recommend?

Right now, I don't remember the frame color options, only that some are plain, and others have Mercedes-Benz stamped on the lower portion.

Thanks,

Musikmann

What do you mean Kent, even the thing on the bumper that the license plate screws into? I see where the 4 screws are, but that will leave 4 holes.

Thanks Peter, sounds reasonable to me. I don't like the way the bumpers look when these cars have the Parktronic option, so I'm sure I wouldn't like to see 4 little holes in there either.

it will look better with everything taken off.... otherwise go for a plain chrome frame to keep it decent

I dont have one on my 01 E but I did the plug thing on my 92 SEL, I do agree on the parktronic look, as I recall it leaves only two holes on 92. You can have your body shop fill grind and paint.
The chrome plate with the star did not look bad, I do agree about advertising, I used a plain stainless ring which matches the rear.

Chrome makes sense, it will match the silver/chrome star that way!
