2001 320 Sport lower grille inserts

Seem to have lost my passenger side lower grille insert and of course the replacement mb price for the sport version seems (even more than normal) outrageous to me. $100+

I have found some on eBay but they're all from Hong Kong and they don't look like the sport version from the pictures provided on the auction.

Someone wouldn't happen to have some laying around or know a good place with a reasonable price to get that small piece of metal?
It doesn't bother me too much with it missing but.... does look better with it in place

Thanks!

ps. Part # 11 here .. http://www.mbonlineparts.com/schematics/5/5766015.gif

Here you go buddy:


Part 150 - A1708850053 (Grille Center)
Part 160 - A1708850153 (Grille Left)
Part 170 - A1708850253 (grille Right)

The cheapest one I could find is from the website mentioned below $113.30 =( Seems to be an expensive piece of plastic...

I get all my parts from www.mymercedesparts.com Way cheaper than my local dealership. To compare: I got OEM set of rubber mats for my R170 last week from them - $37.50 vs Ebay which wants $55 + $15 delivery =$70! Twice as cheap!! Love these new rubber mats!!!! No more extra sand in my car!

At Jeff: I'm here buddy. My firewall was blocking the EPC again =)

Yeeeep I figured I wasn't going to find a dirt cheap option.. expensive German plastic indeed =/

Thanks again for looking it up for me! I might try to fabricate one once it gets warm if I'm motivated enough. Plenty of other things to do that take priority at this point:

Smarttop install, oil, steering damper, hyrd fluid, fuel filter, diff fluid

Just as an FYi, I have an '02 SLK320 with the sport package which is missing the lower center grill. At least on the '02 the sport bumper is the same as the SLK32 "AMG" cars and cost jumps significantly (cheapest I have found is $217 for the lower mess peices each) over the previous generation sport equiped cars for the same mess parts.

I am hoping to start a DIY this weekend that I will fabricate all new lower grills from some mess material that I found online that is nearly identical to the OEM, albeit slightly less ridged. If you are interested p.m. me and/or watch the DIY section in the next week or so for my summery.

Would be greatly interested sir I plan on waiting until the summer to do anything major but any help would be much appreciated. Hard finding others with a 320 around here
Need to take the front bumper off eventually as both side fins/flaps were slightly lose when I bought her and just have a temp fix using a spacer to keep them tension-ed enough to not come loose and look ugly. Plus some rust maintenance wouldn't hurt =/

I also plan on painting the lower grille's black (to match the car) as although I'm sure it's just dirt but mine have a extremely dull wanna-be chrome look to them that I don't find attractive at all. Luckily it's the little things that I can be picky about =)

Trinityparson, welcome to SLKWorld.com: The #1 Mercedes-Benz SLK Forum from NE England.

Here are just a few easy instructions to make your membership a fun and productive experience:

Please update your location/vehicle (model and year) in your profile as it helps the members answer your questions which usually are based on that information. Click on ‘Usercp’ at the top left of page, then ‘edit your details’ on the left side, ‘additional information’ near the bottom, edit your ‘location’ and ‘vehicle’.

The "Search" feature at the top right of the page is for searching the forum. Many questions have already been asked and answered by our knowledgeable members.

If you are having difficulty finding a solution, you can post your question in the appropriate discussion forum. By doing this, you should receive a quicker response, but please be patient as the forum is worldwide and members live in different time zones.

Private Message (pm) is a tool to communicate with other members privately for instructions or just chatting. In order to do this you must have at least 15 posts. It's easy to obtain the posts by clicking on the "New Members Introduce Yourself Here" section and just welcome the new members (like we welcomed you).

To post a picture, either start a new thread or reply to one, type what you want to say and click on the 'paper clip' just above, this will open a window to your left, click on 'browse', go to your pictures, and double click on the one you want to post, click on 'upload' and then 'submit' your post.

If you like a comment or want to thank another member for their post, there's a 'like' button to the right and just below is the 'thanks' button.

As a new member you can use the "New Posts" link at the top of the info bar. It's a great way to see all of the posts you have missed since you were on the forum last.

When you are ready to leave the forum just click on "Quick Links" and click 'mark forums read', this will clear your screen for when you log on again.

As a member you have may vote and/or enter our Ride of the Month competition, we welcome new SLKs to compete and new members to vote:
