Here is my original front grille staring at you and me. It needed to be replaced immediately!!!! Sadly mine is an Elegance Model so it comes with two slates front grille. I have to be honest with you, I really dislike this grille.
The grille is in perfect condition but I really want the Avangarde looks grille. So to remove the old grille there are only 6 nuts to remove from the bonnet and the grille will just pop out!
Here are the comparison between an Elegance grille and an Avangarde grille. The multiple slates from the Avangarde wins my heart every time I saw a higher spec W210 driving pass me. Finally I can have this cool grille in my car as well now
