ebay replacement grille
 
Has anyone bought one of these? I broke mine in an unfortunate hood up garage door incident.
These seem too cheap to be any good.

It should be ok but it is $35 with shipping. The outer shell is a part that you should get from MB though, the after market will rust bad.

Good luck

I have been looking for a new grill for my '87 300DT, but all I can find within my price range are plastic replacements.

If this one is not plastic, it might be worth it.

Also note "Replacement Grille -- GRILLE -- Without emblem provision; A high quality, direct fit OE replacement grille."

This is plastic, just like the original, but it does not include the metal outer shell. My chrome outer shell is fine. I just smashed the plastic part.
These guys offer exchange only warranty. Has anyone out there bought one?

Hi These plastic inserts are usually in the $15-$20 range - so $10 is a good price - but they are making it up with excessive shipping fees. It likely does not come with the thin chrome molding strips which might run another $15 or $20 if yours are bent up.

You might want to shop around some. I bought the whole grill (replacement brand) for $49 - which included the plastic insert, the thin molding strips and the chrome metal shell. I just had to change over the star & grill badge. It not OE quality but still looks pretty good. Also shipping was free since my total order amount qualified for free ground shipping.
