    Facelift is more aggressive.It'san E63 so is it a "wolf in sheeps clothing" or a "WOLF"?

    Facelift doesnt work with the shape of the pre-facelift front.

    Pre-facelift everytime

    It doesn't help that they're not taken from the same angle, however, I prefer the original.

    Original all the way i love the elegance and detest the large plastic star.

    Maybe the orignal with some mesh behind it to protect the radiator a little but that is about as far as i would go.

    Facelift hands down.
    It makes the car look more up to date.

    Try as I might I can’t get this sort of image out of my head:

    [​IMG]

    w124 big star grille - Google Search

    Saw a 204 estate today with a big star grille and the bonnet mounted star...too much for me.

    As long as you like it though I guess that’s all that matters, but as you asked! :)
