    Morning.

    I have never used these people but over the last couple of years I have heard more bad than good if you see what I mean. More along the lines of orders for acessories that never turn up and when they do they are wrong and people have had difficulties with returns and credits etc.

    I think I've seen a couple or so bad luck stories about exhausts on other forums.

    hth.

    Eh? It's the same company, so portzy's post still applies.

    Howard was pointing out that they had changed the company name, and that you would need to search under the old name to find the posts you needed.

    It is a real shame as I really liked those CL style grill - anyone else do them? Looking at google but they are just selling the part - not the fitting

    Do yourself a favour and forget that big star grille . Hideous IMO .... just my opinion mind you ... if you like it , it's up to you.

    A useful rule of thumb though is that if it came with a big star from the factory , it looks good , if you add one to a car that didn't come with one from the factory , it will look terrible. MB spend a fair bit on design , they know what looks good and what doesn't .

    They turn up on Ebay quite often .. try there.

    Wow I was just looking at their website but given how rubbish the £ is doing against the $ (1.47), it'll cost a fair amount.

    Comes with fitting instructions as well:

    Will speak to Olly to see if he's able to put them on.

    I'm using

    http://www.formymercedes.com

    At the moment and he could not be more helpful, he has ordered some wood especially off my chassis number and sending this away to have something made.

    Several e-mails and pictures being sent both ways.

    So far brilliant :)
