No, grilles designed to be generally compatible with the Mercedes-Benz CLK430 do not necessarily fit all model years. These grilles are mostly manufactured by private labels, Original Equipment Manufacturers, and aftermarket brands. As a result, grilles intended for the CLK430 still differ in size and shape according to the year of issue.Are there any mesh grilles for this model?
There are grilles for this model that contain elements of mesh. For the most part, grilles for the convertible and coupe are of the billet type. That is, a grille with slats arranged vertically and/or horizontally. Horizontal billet grilles are most common among the Mercedes-Benz CLK-Class, and the horizontal slats are called fins.
Mercedes Benz, and compatible aftermarket manufacturers, produce Mercedes-Benz CLK-Class billet grilles with number of fins ranging from one to five. Honeycomb mesh backdrops often appear in single-fin grilles. Grilles with a central vertical line bisecting multiple horizontal fins and/or a central Mercedes Benz star can be found for this model, for all years.What’s the range of materials and finishes?
Aluminum, chrome, and thermoplastic are some of the materials you'll encounter most often. Grilles may boast alloys or one material coating another. For example, stainless steel and all-chrome grilles are perennial favorites. Some grilles consist of hard, sturdy plastic with a chrome coating. Finish imparts durability to the grille, resist corrosion, inclement weather, friction, and general wear. Some frequently used finishes include:
- Chrome: a chromium alloy used for structural enhancement and topical reinforcement.
- Silver: Indicates a color, not actual silver.
- Matte Black: A colored finish that is also applied to metal, giving a shine-free finish to match wheels or bumpers.
