I am not getting in the middle of that, You need to ask her which one she wants.

omg there are SO many to choose from.. head to google and type in Mercedes R170 grille and then click the image section.. its fantastic! Also, search for the AMG and sport grilles.. for some reason many different types tend to populate each word you use differently in the searches. But the images will help you a lot so you can see what it will look like on your color 170. I originally picked some blinged out chrome monstrosity, UNTIL I saw what it would look like on my color car. That completely changed my thought process.

You'll also want to think outside the box on this one. My black grille has dictated [and will continue to do so] all the other mods on my car. The new lights, the new rims next year..the tail light modifications..everything.

I think that the chrome ones look nice on the silver cars. There was a lot of post from some else that was looking at grilles and very one posted a bunch of pictures. You might have to do a search on grilles on the site.

Very similar to my mod. Thank's to Tolak, mine cost a couple of bucks and 5 minutes to fit.
Still think the one stripe looks good though.
