96-99 Front Bumper Grill Removal Possible?

Putting on a Brabus front lip but was wondering how would it look if I cut off the entire grill? Anyone done this before?

Do you have a photo of that BRABUS front bumper lip?

Hard to imagine improving on how it is now.

I like your front lower grill better than our 2000 model year wagon lower fascia.

I'm not normally a fan of silver but your w210 wagon looks good in it.

The above silver wagon is not my ride but just to show you what I am referring to.

Here's a picture of a brabus bumper lip. I'm actually thinking about cutting off the entire section of the grill and putting on a customized black mesh grill. Would be nice if someone has done this to show me a picture of it.

imho, ditto what David says.

"Butchering" leads to a much de-valuated w210, or any other sedan for that matter.

If you're going to do it, do it right and not just piece-meal.

Eh.. It’s not even worth much and has over 150k miles. Father was going to donate it but I took possession because I didn’t want to see it go, lots of memories.

Then you're throwing money away in the wrong place, imhumbleO.
