It looks like it would fit. Does anyone know the exact dimentions of the W164 grill?

Take a close look at the hood. It doesn't look like the hood opens with the entire grill as ours does now. There are 2 small cut lines halfway down the sides of the grill suggesting that the hood opens up there and the grill stays down with the bumper.

Or, like roman said, I doubt it.

good eye bigcat, I've notive that too[:)]It's look like the the grill will stay down when you open the hood due to the cut out. could be the same size but the mounting screw maybe diffirent.

as long as the W164 grill is BIGGER then our's, it shouldn't be a problem, just trim it a little and you're done
but if its smaller, then maybe custom fitting a W164 hood with grill is an option ... but again, first have to see if they are interchangable

Why not just buy a W164, after it is a far better SUV then W163. Just j/k, dont wont to start a war over here.

I would also love to see a W163 with a W164 grill.

I know this thread has been quiet for years but I had an idea. Is it possible to interchange just the MB Star between the W163 and W164?

They are the same diameter but may not be a straight swap. You can buy a 164 style grill for the 163.
