    I have a 2007 S Class W221 with the standard front grill. Has anyone replace this grill with the new type with the Merc centre piece. Have you any pictures and if so does it improve the look or degrade the classiness of the S Class. Thanks

    If past history (SEC grilles on S-class, bonnet stars on 129s) is anything to go by, it's not likely to be a aesthetic improvement.

    Guaranteed to reduce resale value.

    Well welcome,not sure anybody on here as ever swapped a front grill on a W221 S320,I know I would not think of changing it,but you can buy grills that will fit made in Taiwan with the central large mercedes badge,I suppose that along with buying the badge will set you back over £200,if you do it make sure you keep the old grill,because as already mentioned a grill like that will wreck the resale value of your car.

    The 221 AMG Front Grills are different.
