We can't really say this is the best-looking conversion kit we ever saw on a Mercedes-Benz, or any other car for that matter, but the result is something you may be interested in.
The owner of a Mercedes-Benz CLS 550 (500 in Europe) decided his car was not special enough with its standard engine grille so he decided to not only get it modified, but completely bling-ified and make it almost look like a rejected Cadillac design.

The “strut grille” it now sports gives the car an entirely new appearance, a look which is also helped by a set of not-so-bad-looking, actually, Gianelle Cuba-10 alloy rims.

The entire kit was put in place by Wheel Specialists, Inc in Tempe, Arizona, US.

The 20-inch Gianelles with “ball cut details” - whoever knows what that means, feel free to inform us – actually fit the car nicely, since the matte black finish is well suited to the CLS's color.

We can't say the same about the “strut grille” - which also sports a pair of LED lights on each side to further draw in attention to the bling - but hey, whatever floats the owner's boat is not for us to judge.
