AMG C63S
Chrometec just released the grill for pre facelift models.


However, there’s a catch....


‘Today we have prepared for you a small world premiere, as the first company (Worldwide) we can now introduce the coveted panamericana style grille for all c63 amg models of the pre-Facelift Series, the pictures speak for themselves...

The conversion is unfortunately not plug & play and must be made mandatory with us in the house!”

Actually looks pretty good, but I still prefer the OEM pre-face lift grille.

more chrome? no thanks. If the car didn't have a night package, it may be too much chrome, but this prototype car actually has night package, so its even worse. Lets see a night version of the same thing

looks pretty awesome with the pre facelift headlights. The new headlights give the car a more vertical appearance and that paired with the new grille is the issue. Everything is vertical making the car look less wide and therefor less aggressive.

Agree 100%.

Personally, the Night Package and Carbon Fiber dash were 2 must have items for me.

anyone has instruction on how to change out the grill? looks like a pain to do it. I also see black ones, it seems to be the only black one you can find. I think I might try it out if this is easy to do yourself.
also are regular c class grills interchangeable with the c63(s) amg?

LMAO, no you would not need to send your car to Germany to get this done.

I'm sure you can do it yourself, or get any bodyshop to help you.

LOL, I stopped working on cars many years ago and don't trust local body shops. Maybe a dealer install.

Is Chrometec using the new OEM grill or is this another aftermarket version? I must say the grill looks much better on the pre-facelift cars with the original headlights.

+1 for the old. I think the new one looks more SUV than sports car. On the plus side the vertical bars look like a cage for the engine! 😄

Any update on if thereís a panamericana grill that can just be switched with the previous style? Without doing a full bumper just grill.

They have two options and as you can see I went with the blacked out one.

They do have it on their website:

OEM chrome: https://global.cksperformance.com/pr...5&type=grilles

OEM gloss black: https://global.cksperformance.com/pr...5&type=grilles

My personal opinion. I donít think it look good if you only swapped out the grill. You need to also swap out the other 3 pcs. Lower grill too to match.
