if you have driver assist, I don't know if you can do the grill replacement. There are sensors on the front grill.

Yup, that's correct .I don't think aftermarket grills would work because of that . Keep your factory grill , these are nicer , I had swapped mine with 4 grill slat too but I don't have driving assist package

55tech and formymercedes.com both have grilles that are distronic compatible. Have had audis for years and know the whole match AM parts to specific options.......mbusa has all 13 models up to look at no change.....I read all the "spy" articles.....some of them as young as yesterday they all still say it will be redesigned.....but Benz site has them up with no change at all.....kinda bummed would have had a 12 but was told to wait cause of changes......now no changes......but I got every option the way I wanted......still can't wait

Considering replacing grill w/Star type. Where do you suggest looking for this?

the 2014 model year will probably introduce the facelift, though from what I've seen it's not going to be too much different than the current model, mostly just a new bumper and lights. I think your '13 will do you quite well :thumbsup:
