I know this is a post a pic thread but I have to share my story. I was at the bank and some douche park his genesis next to my 212 and he made the coment, " hay our cars look exactly alike with the front grills, and the back". That did it for for me the next day i ordered a 55 tech star grill. although the korean seem to be making nice cars I dont want my car mistaken for a rice/ kimshi burner. Enough said

All that matters is how YOU feel. we both know the two cars are built differently. Also for whatever it is worth if both cars are pulled up to a restaurant, which car do you think the valet will leave up front in a prime parking spot?

Having said that, those Hyundai's are getting VERY nice... and they are just getting started. They are not as much direct competition but if I were Honda, Toyota, or Nissan, I'd be VERY worried.

Also don't mean to offend anyone but I like the stock grill much better than any of the grills posted. The stock grill is timeless and elegant. For the most part Mercedes knows what they are doing with design (why so many others copy theirs designs) and I totally get the customizing your car to make it your own thing. But be careful because some of the mods take away from the aura inherent in the design.

It seems like you get influenced too quickly and/or you worry too much.

Have you seen the two side by side? I used to have a Genesis that parked next to me and the grilles are extremely different, especially up close. Be careful, anyway, because now with that faux and disproportioned Star grille, your car might look worse than the Genesis!

Yes, I am one who cannot leave my car standard looking regardless of the make. My E350 Sport had the AMG Sport wheel pkg, so I did a core swap with California Chrome for the chrome version of the same wheel. I then added the 55 Tech star grill, the chrome behind the door handles, a pin stripe, and AMG pedals. Since this pic was taken I have changed the hood badge to the 45 mm size and love the look of it. The color is Capri blue metallic.

For those who haven't seen my previous posts in other threads, here is a pic showing the chrome wheels, and you may be able to see the chrome behind the door handles as well as the pin stripe.
