Switch out Front Grill

Just got a 03 SLK32, don't like the look of the "electric shaver" grill. Have you switched out your grill and can you share a pic?

I have switched mine out because the tabs got brittle and broke on the old one. See my signature pick. Grill mesh matches mesh in lower grill. Custom made by one of our forum members. Love our 32's. 😈😈😈. 😈😈

Thanks a lot, now every time I look at the front end of my SLK I'm going to think "electric shaver"

Was approx. Ł120 in 2015 from an Ebay seller. Also had broken tabs on original o/w probably wouldn’t have bothered. Having said that I do prefer this CLS-style grill

There are several options.


There's a thread hiding somewhere.
A member posted shots of most possible combinations for the grill.

Isn't the one pictured aftermarket?

I thought all 170's came with a perforated, horizontally stamped, black grille.??

you could post it in the parts for sale section and maybe someone would be willing to trade.

Perhaps a 32 is different?
