Hi everyone

I’ve owned mercs for unpteen years and had some great times at meets with members here and undertaken all kinds of mods. For personal reasons I’ve been a bit quiet the past few years. I’m still driving mercs per my signature. I’ve just retired from 32 years owning my own recruitment business in Rochdale and have now settled in Hinckley, Leicestershire. Today I downsized and traded in my 2018 GLE 43 AMG for a shiny new tech silver GLC 300 suv prem plus. I’ve already got the mod bug back and will be seeking some advice from fellow GLC owners for one or two mods soon. First up likely changing the front grill for the amg panamerican.

Cheers, Steve

Welcome (back) Steve, sounds like a nice motor you've got there, and can't beat a few mods! :) 👍

Welcome back Steve :cool:

I remember you from the old days (twenty years ago now!) - didn’t you used to have an E55 Saloon (210)? :)

Cool! I’ll look out for you 😁. Was your grill a retrofit?
Yes, did it myself on my drive. Whilst it was up in the air I had the wheels powder coated too.

I bought mine from here Mercedes Grills
The job was quite straightforward albeit time consuming for me, I don't like crawling on the floor anymore 😁. On some cars you can change the grill with the bumper still on the car, on others (mine included) the bumper needs to be removed.
