12 reg C220 estate
Hi, newbie looking for help.....

I have owned a C220 estate 12 reg for a few years now and love it.

Unfortunately before I took ownership the previous owner had the star / target site on the bonnet replaced with a flat badge. The grille remains and is the “horizontal” lines, ie no Mercedes star.

Apologies for not being perfect with my request and set up..... I’d like to replace the grille with a star one but the local dealership says they can only get me a like for like replacement.

How can I find part nos of suitable grilles?

Have you tried eBay?

Usually plenty of genuine and aftermarket ones there.

Hi 12C220, welcome to the forum. Ebay is your best and cheapest source as has been previously stated by LK. Loads on there :)

Find the first 6 numbers of your VIN. It will be something like WDC204xxx...
The bit we want is the 204 and XXX following. That is your exact model number.
Using that information search for w204 grille, choose the one you like and contact the seller and ask if it will fit a 2012 C class 204.xxx - if they say it does but you find it doesn't you can open a dispute and return it. If it does fit everyone's happy.

I'd rather have the discreet gunsight on the bonnet rather than the in your face one in the grille - and much easier to fit in place of the flat one!:D:D:D
