Well, I almost bought a "BLACK" new grille on the Group Buy, but turns out I didn't want my grille falling off or being broken, to me not saure it was worth the money ?

I saw "ByByeAmericanPie"'s older SL looking grille, and really like that. Looks really classy in the photo. I think I want more of a PERIOD CORRECT" grille, as I think the CLK style grille might be too obvious of a TACK ON ADD ON ??

I haven't seen too many BAHAMA BLUE ones with either style in photos, and NONE in person, ha, so I am just "TALKING" based on photos .. don'ty mind me .. lol

Anyone know fo a good spot to get the SL style grill like ByByeAmericanPie has ? I know his cost a pretty penny, not sure if there are any other QUALITY alternatives ?!

THANKS!

Got mine from GB. Strips came off during car wash :crybaby2: But what the heck.
I took all the strips off! Now, pure black w/ only Benz's star shining :D I like it better like that :thumbsup:

Papa is correct!
They're cheap and make it even cheaper looking w/ the strips :( I noticed as soon as I put it on.
I figured, run with it with the strips for couple a days & see how long it lasted :D Saturday went to car wash and 4 of them gone :D I didn't even bother looking for it or asking for replacement. Yes, you get what you paid for... most time this is true and this time it is :D

Good thing about it, it gives better cooling compare to the old one (from observing the temp gauge since the swap).

Post a picture without the strips, i may remove mine if it looks good, of course mine are glued down pretty good so it will take some work to brake them lose.

I'll try to get pic tomorrow & post it here after :D
Actually, I'm looking for one w/o the star. To bad they don't have one specific to what I like. The one they have from DJH is too far forward (buck tooth looking) :eek::(

The ones from the group buy will look like crap without the strips up close. But from a distance???
