When it comes to sporting a grille for your Chrysler 300, what grille appeals to you; a durable ABS plastic grille or a long lasting stainless steel grille? The answer is farfetched. Both grilles are evenly good with many, pros and cons. Let’s take a close look at the features of these two type of grills.

ABS Plastic Grills                        
To begin with, the Chrysler 300 ABS plastic grill is constructed of durable ABS plastic material, light weight and triple chrome plated for a luster shine that is unmatched.

  • Advantages: ABS Plastic is inexpensive, lightweight, rigid and durable thermoplastic material. While it is not as strong as stainless steel or aluminum, ABS Plastic still makes an excellent medium for building billet style mesh grilles because the plastic is resistant to rust and quite durable.
  • Disadvantage: On the downside, this grille may break on impact. But let me be very clear before you crucify me, this style grille will not break, crack or peel from day-to-day driving. As with any grille or grill construction, if the impact is severe, it will break no matter how it was made or what material that was used to making it.

Stainless Steel Grills
On the other hand, the Chrysler 300 stainless steel grille design features well-built stainless steel wire mesh material that is either polished or chrome plated

  • Advantages: Stainless mesh grilles is very strong and corrosion resistance; popular metal used for crafting billet grilles. Plus, stainless steel is very tough, resilient and fashioned into a multitude of forms and shapes. For added customization, it can be painted to match or accent your factory paint scheme.
  • Disadvantages: The downsides to the stainless wire mesh grille style are the price and limited styles. Without any doubt, the stainless steel wire mesh design grille is more durable than the ABS plastic mesh style design grilles. As the popular saying goes – if you live in a glass house, do not throw stones. The same applies here, just because it is made of stainless steel, it will not get damaged. Proper maintenance and care is required for this grille to last long. The downsides to this grille style are the price and style limitations.

Because ABS mesh style grills offers different styles for everyone, several stainless steel grille manufacturers such as E&G Classics, T-Rex Billets and Precision Grilles offers the wire mesh grilles with multiple style to please every segment. For example, E&G Classics offers a standard wire mesh in fine and heavy mesh metal material. Also, they offer wire mesh style grills with center bar, a fine and heavy mesh European style grille with vertical and horizontal bars, chrome plated heavy mesh, dual style mesh. And of late, they added a Rolls Royce Castle Phantom Style grille with mesh insert.

Which grille style is right for your 300? My candid answer is; both! No one grille is better than the other. A lot depends on the style you want to roll on, and more highly, the limits on your budget. Don’t just buy a mesh grille because it’s inexpensive or just because you have unlimited cash to spend. For better or for worse, you are the judge and the jury. Buy the right mesh grille for your Chrysler 300 or 300C because it fits right and you are content with the looks
