    I didn't notice the black plastic behind the grill as much as you seem to have. I saw it when I studied the grill but, it's not as glaring when your standing up looking at it as most people will be when viewing the car. I do think that it would be a nice option though to offer the grill in regular style chrome like the first gen. Maybe that would hide the black plastic behind it as well as give it a little more upscale appeal?

    supergloss piano black is great idea imho, Logan!
    I'd still like a Chrome+brushed metal for the ribs
    but
    as I've said, prolley too much, the thing I hate about the S & T grilles is that they don't go with the older OR newer grilles...
    ...since they vaguely resemble the original Cougar grille, I'd *have to* like them if they had been part of a cohesive look across the lineup - even if briefly - like just for 2012my
    (I'd even have excused the Z from that AND let the Navi (& Cuvs) go with the mini-baleen until the nextgen(s)
    BUT
    really think the S has to co-ordinate with the Z IMMEDIATELY)

    When I first saw the pictures of the MKS grill, I was very negative. I then saw it at last year's auto show, up on a pedestal, and under the lights. I still thought it looked terrible. BUT...At this year's show, seeing it at ground level, I have to say I like it much better than before. In fact, seeing it next to the MKZ, I prefer the size and shape of the MKS grill, and how it seems to integrate into the front end better. It still could use some improvements. I do not like how Lincoln seperates the hood from the front, leaving a black line right in the middle front just under the logo. It should be lowered to be even with the bottom of the grill, and the logo should be lower and a couple sizes larger.

    I entirely agree that the MKC has the nicest looking presentation of this new front-end design scheme. I don't like it on the MKS at all. Otherwise, I may be out of the loop but I thought the MKX compared to the SRX. The MKC seems much smaller.
    You're correct Sal, about the sizing. The MKX competes with the SRX. The MKC IS smaller. The MKS' grill looks WAY better in person than in pics! Plus all of the photos seam to have you look at the grill as though your squatting down looking at it, which is off putting. When your standing up looking at it, the shape looks a lot better and more cohesive. I didn't like it as much as the original at first, but it's grown on me much more with time. Plus seeing it in person really sealed the deal that it was a good update. I'm sure the next full redesign will be a knockout wth the way Lincoln's going with the new design theme.

    Either that or a water streak that was not caught water washing it before the photos.
