MrsG loves it!! . . .
That's quite attractive. My star's chrome plate is peeling, sounds like replacing the whole grille is almost easier than replacing the star alone. Hmm.I think the black would look good with any color. I've seen this same grille in person on a silver one. That's the reason I picked this style. You really don't notice the black surfaces. The center chrome bar really pops. Kind of a throwback to the old SL's.
Installation took all of 5 minutes. Four screws w/ plastic inserts and two small hex bolts.
