AMG grille is fine. You are not trying to mislead people thinking you have the AMG engine under the hood, which the AMG trunk lid badge is for.


I was thinking of getting this same grille myself but somehow I don't like it that much. Those two horizontal bars are too close together. If they were twice as far apart I would get it myself.


Doesn't look as bad as I thought though.

I wasn't sure myself but once I put it on I was very glad I did.

Hi,

Thanks,
No problems or any extra brackets compared without distronic function installation.

When removing the OEM grill, just look around with a flashlight to find the lower clips. I find the 55tech grill has a bit more of a horizontal gap atop the grill but i honestly think it's just me seeing something different and i'll get used to it. My wife walked out of the house and said "i like it, it looks mean" so that works for me! For the JBSSpeed button, it does not fit perfectly flat on the E63 hood (becuase of the seam but from the top you can't tell the difference. I am concerned about water getting underneath and i will monitor. Love the looks though. Thanks to 55tech and JBSpeed.
Anyone done this with 2014+ sport grill with Distrionic?
