Can someone tell me what grill this is.

I have a 2004 S500. I have noticed looking at all S500s I see that my grill is different than them. I just purchased the car a couple months ago. I even searched 04 S500's online and the grill I have is way different than they are. Anyone know what grill this might happen to be?

Hi,

That is one of the Chinese ones, some are better quality than others ..............

I like yours, I have a (different) one on my own w220, and on my R170 , together with the Headlamp upgrades on both Cars

Also, I like those lower lamps too, don't suppose anyone know who makes them ???????

The trick with these, is to actually fettle them a little so they fit really nice, it appears from your photo that someone has done this with yours

With a "private" reg plate, and some other nice add ons like the Headlamps etc, on a tidy Car the non expert sees the Car and thinks it is a much newer MB than it really is ................. cool !!

HTH

That's a nice looking car. The W220 looks really good in white.

DEPO makes those lower "driving lights". Not sure if there's a UK/EU seller, but they can ship. They're not cheap, though, at US $154.

I think there are some Chinese sellers who provide them for less money.

The headlight assemblies are also Chinese aftermarket. I do like the "LED strip" turn signals on them, though, at the bottom of each of them. The S600 TT got Chinese replacement lens covers for the factory headlights, and I gotta say, it was a good fit.

The grill , headlights and lower corner lights are all Chinese /ebay parts . Usually they look terrible but they do look nice on your car . Looks like the grill was painted to match your white ?

The grill is Chrome, and the headlights and fogs arent Chinese ebay stuff. They are actually quite expensive . Normally 395.00 a set, but they have them on sale right now. Auto light pros Spec-D. If you go to autolightpros.com you can see their stuff. These are the Spec-D model, But Dave you are SO right. With those minor additions many people are shocked when I tell them its an 04. They never would of guessed, Since I have the staggered wheels on there as well. You guys should post some pics of your cars on this thread!!! would love to see them.

Hi @Mikey55 ,

When all the Paintwork on my 347 Chalcedon Blau W220 is finished I will surely be posting plenty of piccies, there are a fair few in my S500 Resurrection Thread, and also of my SLK which is in use now, both threads on here, check out the Android Install with the addition of a Steering Wheel that has Stereo Control Buttons and Paddle Shifters which were never fitted to R170

The W220 basically just needs Front Bumper and Left Mirror Cover Painting, (already in primer right now), and then the last bit will be to do Roof and both Rear 1/4 Panels in one hit, the Side Skirts are done but not on Car yet until 1/4 Panels are done

Those Wheels are not the ones for the W220, I have a set of staggered AMG S55K Wheels that are going Gunmetal with diamond cut rim edges, and 4 new Tyres, these are in paint Prep too

The R170 has Headlamps and Grille, and just looks soooooo fresh

They both have Private Plates, the W220 is S55DAU and the SLK (which is getting a 5.0 V8 M113 this coming winter) is S50DAU , I wanted to get DAV but they were unavailable, so I got DAU and the plate mfr narrowed the 'U' a little so it looks like DAV(e) at a glance, so far I've had no hassle from the Feds because they look perfectly legal in the UK font, it's a very subtle change

I also bought the Workshop Van a while back as a non runner, then I did the sign writing (vinyl), and added the Alloy Wheels from Peugeot 807, and the PP D15KOE (Disco) as I used to do DJ'ing locally, only packed that in january this year, all the locals call me "Disco Dave" lol



Cheers,

Tusabes.. I simply said the lights are not Chinese . This is the company. Spec-D LHP-BW22000-V2-APC | 2005 Mercedes-Benz S-Class Chrome/Clear Projector Headlights And those are the exact lights. The Spec - D . They are similar to the ones you sent, but come from a different company that specializes in lights. I cant believe they are asking 242.00 for that aftermarket grill though.. thats a bit redic, and 160 for those lower fogs.. Such a small light, asking so much money. LoL..
