    I love the look of my C220 Coupe but couldn't help thinking there was way to much silver in the grill so I set about sorting it out, gotta say I'm happy with the result

    That does look better. Like the grill on a CLK now.

    Not usually a fan of this sort of thing. Seen an S Class this morning with a totally blacked out grille, just looked like there was a big hole in it.

    Yours though, does look tastefully done, looks OEM to be honest.

    thanks i-CONICA :thumb:

    Taff814 I dismantled the grill so all I have was the silver section, I then rubbed it down and sprayed it with satin black aerosol from Halfords :)
