I saw one of those on a midnight blue W202 around 2 years in Birmingham when I was out in my artic and it looked boss. It really set the nose of the car off but it all comes down to personal choice. I'm chasing the avantegarde grille with Mercedes emblem in it.

I'd personally stick with the Avantgarde grille, I think it looks great as it is :)

Can you photoshop it and post the two pics side by side for comparison?

Neither do I really, but if you post a pic of the front of your car as it is now, i'm sure someone will stop watching www.i-am-bored.com and do it for you!
:D

As requested a comparison between the avantgarde grill and the new black on black one. Do note since the picture of the grill on the website had low quality so this comparison is only to give a rouph idea, not exact.

I still think the avantgarde grill looks better but your opinions may varry

Great job on the photoshopping!
I think the black looks quite good. I had to look at it a few times but it grew on me.

I like the black grill. It gives the car presence and makes it look more agressive.

Gurpz,

Many thanks for doing that for me. I am not sure, i think it might grow on me, the photo's certainly gives you a good comparison. Once again thank you, much appreciated.
