I don't know which grill to keep on.























I also have a regular sport grill in black with the chrome fins and a Lux grill.

Should that be a tough choice ?

Keep the first one of course, the other one looks like some kind of roadkill abortion ..

I like them both but I think especially with the CF front lip, go with the first one.

I don't like the fact that the second one has the MB star filled solid, where the OEM one has gaps between the spokes of the Mercedes star.

OMG! Your carbon fiber grille is amazing. What would make you get the second? I don't like the fake Distronic look and the way the top of the mesh to the left and right of the star is filled in. It reminds me of a PT Cruiser.
Stick with the carbon fiber (especially since I know what you have coming soon).

CF - first one - second one belongs on a Chev - without the star of course. CF one is amazing.

Thanks for all the replies so far and it basically went the way I thought it would. Yes the Cf fits real well with the overall scheme but it is just the stock grill with a CF laminate on the fins. I do like it but it needs a bit more work to make me 100% happy. I tried to do a CF overlay on the one fin but the adhesive I used was not up to the task and contact cement is a one shot try if it isn't perfect you are screwed. I'm going to leave the one fin on for a week or so to see if it grows on me.

BTW the fit is good but it is a pain to install as the bottom clips are hard to engauge I had to run a wire thru the slots on the grill to pull it into place.

Stay with #1 or get the C63 grille from formymercedes.com

The single wing does nothing for the 2009 SL and it certainly does nothing for the C Class...

Strange, seems like I'm the only one that REALLY like the 2nd, it really goes well with your car.

I'm thinking of blacking out the fins with gloss black vinyl this weekend just to see how it looks. I also think I have some vinyl faux CF in the garage.

Ron, honestly, the SL grille doesn't fit well on our cars. It looks good on an SL cause theirs is more squat and longer. On ours, it just looks more smashed up with too much openness on the top and bottom due to the height.

I would keep the second one because it will stand out
