I haven't, but CKS buy a lot of their aftermarket parts from the US , China and Taiwan and charge a markup along with any duty and postage they have to incur.

I had one on my w204 from CKS for about three years.

Fit and finish was fine.

CKS redistribute some OEM Mb parts from Germany, and whack a premium on it

The aftermarket stuff from Asia is available from Asia cheaper as again, they just whack a premium on

Just got one second hand , not fitted yet , only reason was original contributed to too much silver going on and needed contrast .

Like so, albeit pre facelift .


And will look like .
