The MB plastic grill inserts were grey from the factory. If you have a dark
colored car, spray painting them gloss black is a noticable improvement.
Some owners have painted the grills the same body color for an integrated
look. Just a few tips if you're going to paint: There's bumper and trip
paint that has a flex additive that may resist cracking and chipping better
than enamel; you're going to need a couple of cans of paint for just the
grill since there's a lot of waste and a lot of surface area to paint;
finally, don't forget to paint the hood release tab.
