  1. The sport grille with the big star, but the classic grille should also be offered as an option.

    I would always go for a classic grill, but i do consider there should be a choice. I always enjoy seeing the star on the hood when i drive.

    Sports seems more popular but doesn't seem like a Merc without the bonnet star

    Always prefer the sport grill on a C Class, but the classic looks better on E class

    Classic for me too which is what I have on mine. Sport looks a little 'try hard' IMHO and I am still a fan of my crosshair!!!!!

    Sport grille for both as I typically like to go for the sport packages.

    Classic all the way for me. Just looks more elegant to me. So much so that I went out of my way to find a pre-facelift E63 W212.

    I had a sports grille on my Silver C32 & it looked good.
    On my E55 I have the standard grille & bonnet star, I think it looks better on the E55 as its a dark colour, Tanzanite & its a bit more "Grown up" looking lol

    Likewise, albeit not a 63 model, I specifically went for a 2012 E350 as the classic grill is so much more stylish.

    I would have preferred the Classic grille for my 2013 W204, alas it came with a Sports grille and I decided not change it.... for now.

    Classic keeps the 'class' in Mercedes-Benz. ;)

    So how about an MB Club Grille Exchange...?

    Members with same model of cars can swap grilles....

    Split opinion here. I've owned both, and I like the sport on the sporty versions (AMG's) and classic on the others.

    With a bonnet star I think my car would look strange with a star in the grille too, like it was trying too hard.
