I just bought a 2013 GLK 350 but would like to get rid of the grill with the huge mb star. Are there any non-star grills available for the glk out there?

Yep. You can get one from Volvo, BMW, Acura, Toyota, etc.

Personally, I like my Star. Otherwise I would have bought something else.

I agree with Venchka, the star is fine. Removing it would not be good.

I have read some where that MB offered a sport grille in the European market for the earlier models but was not able to find anything about it. The star is ok but imo could be toned down a little.

To me, the current GLK grill is the sport grill (with logo mounted in center of grill, instead of a standup hood ornament).

Agree with Venchka, you can always buy a Subaru Forrester if you dont like the MB badging or think its gaudy

it is a good looking star. i would keep it if i were you. otherwise don't buy a MB if you don't like the star. lots of others don't have the big star and make similar vehicles.

I don't like the star at all. I had a C350 before the GLk and I was able to buy a brabus Replica badgeless grill looked way better. Wonder if they sell one for the GLK. My grill is blacked out right now so its not too bad.

The replica Brabus grille looks great! Too bad no one that I know of is doing it for the GLK as yet. Huge opportunity for an aftermarket business. I have added the Aero kit pieces to the front & rear of ours. Subtle upgrade & the simpler grille would complement it. Maybe it needs a "tube" grille as seen during the sixties on custom cars!

I know of that option. Guess if you got it, flaunt it. Nothing wrong with the star so much as it is the size that is my gripe. Smaller would be nice imo or not at all.
