2004 SLK 32 AMG Front Grille

I have a small chunk missing out of my grille and think replacement is probably easier than repair. When looking to order a new part, I see two part #s keep cropping up: 1708800485 and 1708800685. There's a large price difference between the two but I'm not getting much joy from a couple of the parts people on what the difference actually is. Anyone order these and happen to know?

Yes, you kindly provided me a data card for my VIN WDBKK66F54F303679 but I did not see mention of the grille.

However, from your links I found my way over to here and it looks like the code would be 1708800485

https://partsouq.com/en/catalog/genu...KK66F54F303679


For examples of the price difference I was referring to, this is the 1708800685 ... $270
https://parts.mbfm.com/p/Mercedes-Be...708800685.html

and this the 1708800485 ... $157
https://parts.mbfm.com/p/Mercedes-Be...708800485.html

There is usage of terms w/sport and w/o sport, which may mean the with or without the star, but could not get confirmation, and the price difference is too large for that. Same price difference on other sites too.

I will no doubt get hammered if I am wrong but my belief is they are all the same for the R170. I haven't seen one that does not emulate the so called Cheese Grator style.
Be careful removing the Star out of the old one no matter which way you go.
I recently found a hole in mine which I suspect was a yahoo backing into it. It penetrated just below the hood lip driver side of the star. No sheet metal or paint damage but the grill came out in 6 major pieces and a hand full of bits from broken bracketss.
I decided to do something different and bought a more CLK style. I like it. It was $189 plus shipping.

Not for the purists but this little set up brings my "old skool" Roadster into the 21'st century IMHO

Although they are pretty good, I will be adding Xenons to those lamps at some point

My picture did not apparently load but it is similar to what Dave has on his car.
This is the link. https://www.55tech.com/products/merc...9afa8d1a&_ss=r
The quality is excellent, fitment excellent as well and it is a 10 minute fiddle to change. Also, removing the two bumper cover bolts that are under the hood allows you a bit more flexibility to slide the old one out and the new one in under the bumper cover.

Hi,

Thanks

Yes I was pleasantly surprised by the quality of the R170 aftermarket grille .............................

My W220 one was a lot of fiddly fettling required to make it a nice "MB worthy" fit





Cheers Dave

By the way, thanks all. Following part finally arrived and fit perfectly. I do prefer the "cheese grater" grille!
