I'm looking for a W164 style grill for my W163. Where's the best place to buy it? I see them on eBay for about $150 shipped, but I question the fitment.

Where's everyone getting theirs from?

I got mine from "for my mercedes." It's a little more than what you'll find from Ebay, but it's worth it. Here's what mine looks like on my ML.

Thanks for the quick reply. Is the quality, fit/finish actually better than the eBay ones?

Also, can I ask you how much you paid for the grill? I went to "for my mercedes", but don't see it there.

Where is everyone else getting there's from?

Hi,

I think I paid around $175 and had in 2 days. The quality is great. Eveyone thinks I have a newer ML because of the grille. I spoke to Jerry from the siite I gave you earlier and his website got hacked over the weekend...he's trying to get it up and running again this week. He has alot of accessories for your W163.

If you want the best quality get one from for my mercedes .com. if you want to save around $50 get one from ebay. i recommend the first option.

Thanks guys. I'll go with the first option. I thought maybe they were the same product--only selling for cheaper on eBay. If there is a quality difference, I definitely don't mind paying a little extra.

bought an oem w164 on ebay for $50 :) im happy.
had to grind it down but it worked like a charm.
if you look closely you can see cable ties which sucks and i could have avoided if u spend more time on it ...but ohh well. it works fine.

I got mine from eBay. They are just the same quality. The Grille I got from eBay also include an OEM Star Emblem, it's the best you can get.
I got the grille within 3 days after I paid. It fits PERFECTLY.
