    Hi guys,

    My boyfriend had a car accident and he broke the front grille of R129 SL....

    His birthday is in a month and I am secretly searching the grille for him...because he was so down when he came back with the dent on the grille.

    I did a bit of research. His one has 7 slats rather than 6 slats. I think it is a version difference?

    Also I searched eBay, amazon, internet etc but hasn't been successful in finding the grille or used-grille.:cry:

    If I can, I want to give him the original version and want to surprise him...

    It would be great if you can help me finding one! Please!!

    Hi, I have a similar problem with my SL320 (Year 2000). I see from 'televisions' post above that you can buy the slats separately....Are these available from the dealer? I only need one slat replacing and so this would be an ideal fix ! Thanks.

    Yes they are numbered, and the dealer will work out the one that you need
