GT Grille Install on my 2019 GLA45 (with front 360 camera)

I finally got a chance to install the GT grille in my 2019 GLA45. My car has the 360 camera along with Distronic and collision avoidance. I was able to modify the replacement grill to keep the front camera and everything else is working great!

I've seen lots of people ask about installing the grille and keeping the camera. It can be done, but you need to make some changes. I ended up cutting out part of my stock grille and fitting that to the new one then 3D printing some pieces to fit it and replace the rib in the grille. I think it turned out great!

I also made a video showing the install along with how I modified the grille in case anyone is interested in the process.

Nicely done, subscribed! You can barely even tell there's been a modification. Maybe a YouTube giveaway for the OEM grille?

Instead of cutting the factory camera mount thing, I think I would've used a moldable putty like Sugru or something to get the shape of the camera mount, cut away the centre bar from the aftermarket grille and adjusted the mount's dimensions in CAD to fit in the space. Also print the centre bar in to the same piece so it's all one.
