    Hi all,

    I am after a chrome/ black grill for my W163 ML, however I may consider an all chrome grill.

    I have found it hard on ebay to find a genuine one.

    Although, I could try and fit the chrome doubled sided slats. I am not convinced these will look oem. If anyone has done so, I would be interested in your views.

    I do not want the W164 look.

    I hope someone can help and I will not be paying silly money.

    How much is a genuine part from MB?

    Might be the better road to go down

    Cheers, yes I have sent out requests....nothing has returned yet.

    In most cases I am told the grill has been sold already.

    I am starting to contemplate the chrome stick on strips, although if I do buy them...I am sure around the same time the grill I want will come up on the net. :-x

    I have managed to find one, although the chrome needs rescuing. Any suggestions or should I just re-chrome? Would need advice on re-chroming as well.

    Thanks

    Re chroming plastic is quite a specialists job, I would search for chroming shops that can help.
