    Don't like the MB badge on the chrome part in the top pic. Seems (for me ) to look better in the 2nd pic.

    I prefer #2, the first one looks old fashioned (to me).

    The second one doesn’t look modern though, it just looks shit.

    If you want that style then get the face lifted w212

    So pay thousands more for a facelift w212 just to get the grill, as apposed to a pre facelift w212, and changing the grill to the one you want for about £100-£200.

    By all means change yours if you want lol, but the OP decided against it anyway... so continuing this thread was pretty pointless to begin with
