CLS 63 AMG (218)
From my knowledge and sources the LED headlights are the same size, no change in measurements or size, the new lights will be a straight swap BUT the wiring and control box to the new headlights is different.

The front and back bumpers have the same fittings with no difference in measurements or size when it comes to fitting them, so straight swap BUT... Beware though the pre facelift CLS has the led day time lights which require modification to fit onto the new bumper if you decide to keep the old headlights. The new headlights have the day time lights built into them.

Hope this helps (I know someone who has done this btw)

I don't think you can simply exchange the grills, you would have to swap the entire bumper. I have seen an aftermarket diamond grill that would fit into the 2012-2014 CLS but I am suspicious to the quality of it as I have not seen it in person (I think it is fairly hard to switch them out as well)

I saw a 2012 being sold and it had the diamond grille with the 2012 bumper. I believe it can be done.

None. We dismantle them :)
The front and rear bumper is interchangeable from 2012-2014. The lights may get a little tricky, depending on if you have HID or LED. It appears they will also interchange 2012-2014 as well, but it's certainly possible the wiring may be different. I wish we had the 2014 parts in stock your looking for so I could give you more exact information, but we only have the 2012 parts in stock at the moment.

Send us a PM if you have any questions!

We kinda know that. I think you misunderstand, we are trying to find out if the facelift 2015+ bumper, grille and headlights can be interchanged with 12-14...or maybe I'm the one who misunderstands.
