New Panamericana grill in all black with black star. Fits like a glove. Didn’t even take all the bumper off. Just the wheel arch screws and the top ones.

Can you do a "before" and "after" side-by-side shot? Would be great to see...

My diamond grill is now scheduled to arrive this Friday (the SMS message I received this morning says it is coming from Singapore) and plan is to get it fitted next week, so expect pictures soon...

That’s looks amazing. I had to go all black though. I’m a stealth man.

Just noticed you donít have parking sensors at the front of your car. Are you blanking off the holes on the diamond grille?

Good point, @Col... There are these two holes designed to fit the sensors which are kinda empty. I will have to source fake sensor plastic plugs and put them on... The grill hides them a tad and they are not too obtrusive overall...

Almost ready...

New diamond grill installed.... and the car is indeed transformed, just like that.


Before & After

-45-.jpg -44-.jpg


-46-.jpg -43-.jpg

As it looks when night falls

-40-.jpg

The front now is somewhat "updated" from understated (some may say "boring") to one that says "i am modern and cool" And with the lighted MB logo, the coolness factor goes up a notch.. Me likey
