    This item is a must have for any Mercedes-Benz owner out there. It is a serial numbered, limited edition hood ornament that takes the place of the raised Mercedes star.

    Red Painted Calipers with White Mercedes Logos

    Silver Lower Grill Paint

    The grills on a stock C230 are black and blend in with the rest of the car's black paint. Midnight Kompressor's grills were painted in a metallic silver paint to make them stand out against the rest of the front end. They also blend well with the projector fog lights.
     
    Sport AMG Style Black Grill

    Once the hood ornament was removed Midnight Kompressor lacked a logo on the front of the car. This grill gives it a large emblem in chrome that tells everyone what kind of car it is. The grill was painted black to match the car and goes well with the other chrome accents.
     
    Tinted Tail Lights

    The tail lights were tinted with 20% tint to help them blend with the black paint of Midnight Kompressor. The tint was cut from around the clear portion of the tails to give it a custom look.
