We've seen plenty and I can tell you most of us don't like them

From what I can see of your car it looks fantastic...except for that grille, I hope you don't keep it on there
They look cheap and tacky...and your car is too fine for that

Namada, You shouldn't beat round the bush. Just tell it like it is...LOL!

That type grille(big chrome Benz star) looks good on SEC's (As they come with that type Benz star originally) and the sedans that happen to have the SEC hoods, lights, grille and other bits transferred onto them. To me, the SEC hood/grille conversion looks great on the sedans.
That particular Grille, not so good. Sure looks like a clean car other than the grille.

i was looking at new grilles but i liked the unique look since i havent seen to many on other 126s but i can now see why i wonder if it would look better in chrome but with the star

As a first step one might paint the star black to match the rest of the black in the grille. Then it would be more subtle.
Bottom line: If you like it, keep it. If we all liked the same things we'd all drive VW bugs or some other car, and life would be ....BORING.

We need more pictures of your car. Looks like you got a good deal.

I really like your wheels, very nice. I see a lot of those grills around here and they aren't my favorite. The original chrome grill is awesome and is nice in its differences from the SEC.
