Still think A 453 647 05 00 is the one you want...

Thanks I'm going to check it out!

I asked my nearby smart center about A 453 880 34 04

I do not have a Sport package.

Sounds par for the course. Many of Mercedes-Benz's recent models don't have real exhaust tips. Here's one that's literally as fake as fake can be.

Basically, the auto industry has decided that soot on the tips is bad, so some companies are distancing the tips from the actual exit while others are completely faking the exhaust exits entirely.

There is more than one exhaust offered on the C Class. One has a real tip, the other doesn't.

Here's another pic of the standard exhaust.

That might be a European model but I've never seen than on one in the U.S.

Anyway back to the matter at hand... looks like you can order these parts... instead of "100" you order "80" which gets you the valance without the cutouts.

Looks like it'll be about $500 for the valance and the lower bumper trim... plus painting (maybe).

The valance only comes in a matte grey/silver. Maybe I should paint it gloss black to match the safety cell or leave that color (which wouldn't exist on the car otherwise).

You need the valance? Sorry, I am not clear which part is that? The lowest part is what connects to the part you want to buy...

Got to turn off the SA filter and the part numbers de-shade/become visible....

I looked over my last post, and I appear to have made an error. Let me try to fix it here AND there...
