OK, first off, I have read most of the post regarding grills. I have gone through the sticky of the w203 pics (some really sweet cars in there).

Here's my question, or maybe my request. I have narrowed down my choices to either the CL 4-fin or the CL 3-fin, black with chrome stripes, does anyone have pics of their car with the 3-fin installed? Really curious to see how it looks. I have tried Photoshopping the choices onto my car, but I don't really trust it.

thanks in advance for the help.

The body shop that repaired my car used the 3 bar grille instead of the 4 when they put it back together.... idk if this is what you're looking for or not, but here ya go!

That's the one I have, I was thinking of the CL style ones, with the big star in the middle, but thank you for your response. Must have been a great body shop, nothing looks even slightly damaged.

That's one that I am looking at, I have just never seen one mounted up on a W203 C before, or at least a picture you could really see what was going on.

The flat badge is in the mail, picked an MB one cheaper than the knock-offs (caught some of the country's upstanding youths playing with the star in a grocery store parking lot last night-so can't wait to get rid of potential hood damage). It's just the standard one.

The car is Mars Red, so I am going to go with the black grill.

well, ordered the 3 fin in black. I took the gunsight star off this weekend, and without it the stock grill really doesn't do much for the car (my opinion, nothing more), I will post a pic or 2 when it's installed.

Almost bought a pewter on with a silver 4 fin sport grill on it, very monolithic looking, more classy than sporty (again just my opinion).

Man, Iam so pissed I got mine and the mounting clips are to big and will not hold the grile to the body tight and the star mount is hookie and does not work and to top if off the chrome tim has flaws very cheaply made and also drop ship from Taiwan.

We will see what the seller responce is .:mad:
