yes , i bought it from wataru . i have had to fix some small things but it fit very well . i removed the net behind it which is installed from them , i better like it without net . the grille itself was expensive plis customs and VAT and painting i ended up at 1200,00 - euro .
for the single cab it was worth it in my eyes .

Hey Guys! Here’s a link to a place I’m Japan that supplies what looks to be a 460/461 style grille for the 463. It looks like they have 460/1 headlight bezels too for the 463. Here’s a link and some pics!

Can't you just put a W460 grille on a W463? I thought they used the same mounts

No you can't. W463 grille is molded into the mating headlight covers

I don’t speak Japanese but stumbled across this. Looks like it talks about the the same 460 styled grille for the 463 made by the same company.

Does anyone here happen to speak Japanese? I’d love to get my hands on a 460 style grille and headlight bezels.

I actually have one to sell that I bought from them about a year ago. It’s painted Matte Black. It’s a real nice grill but ended up putting the OEM one back on. I also have a chrome star to go with it too. I had it professionally painted by a local auto painting shop. $500 + shipping, I’m located in the Chicago area.
