Lorenz,
I have seen one of those fitted and was not really that keen, plus they are not standard for a 4200. Do you think they look better than the facelift grille..??

The GS grill was an option on the face lift 4200's.....I think they put them on as standard on the very last cars.....Must say I like the GS grill on the 4200 face lift.....Marks black 4200 look so much better..Sort of meaner than the slatted ones...

I upgraded my 06 grill on my 4200 to the black mesh version...much nicer than the slats in the standard 4200 and mirrors the original 2002-2004 coupe despite not having a nice heavy metal trident symbol.
mine was from Eurospares who sell black and chrome from £250-300. The black is just the chrome painted.

I took at look there but id rather just buy one thats complete. A forum member pm me that he has one but its black. Can the wire mesh be removed and sent out to be chromed? If so ill have to weigh out all costs

I am sure if of sufficient quality and adequate diameter of wires, the mesh can be chromed, providing done properly

Im 100% sure that the black mesh are chromed ones sprayed black , if you were to nitromors the grill it would expose the chrome underneath.and yes it could be re chromed

OK I'm open to looking at the GS grille as an improvement, I did see one in a sort of satin chrome and it did not do much for me personally, but I will look out for a black one. Anybody got any pictures of what it's like..??
