    Talking What after market or extras did you add?

    I have seen some pics of your cars here and lots of talk about extras being added. I was curious to what you added, why and if you have pics. Who knows...maybe I need that too?

    I saw a post the other day that talked about some kit called...MX something? I can't remember exactly what it was. I was just curious to what is out there to doll up my ride even more.

    another thing...some of you have little images in the bottom of your posts...do you insert that jpeg everytime you post?
    Thanks!

    Splash guards : I wanted to attempt to keep the little stone chips along the bottom to a minimum. The guards offered from Cadillac fit beautifully.

    Rubber (Bad weather) floor mats: For obvious reasons .... also nice product from Cadillac.

    Do you have any pics of the floor mats? I've been looking for rubber mats and really have not found any that I like. Being in NJ, I think I'll definitely want rubber mats once they start laying down the sand/salt in the winter.

    No, that is done in your user profile (select User CP) from the links in the blue area near top of page. From there, select Edit Avatar. You can use one of the predefined avatars or upload your own custom avatar (as I did).

    "Bottom of the post" I think she's talking the pics in the sigs not the avatar.

    Here is an easy one. The rear license plate lights are not LEDs and do not match the rest of the exterior lighting. So, change the standard bulbs for some LEDs:

    OK, in that case, go the User CP, then select the Edit Signature link.

    I'll be happy to post pics this evening after work. I'll include a couple of the splash guards installed as well.

    Re: What after market or extras did you add?

    Thanks lavaman. I will have a look at those. I took a peek in the parts dept today while at the dealership and they didn't have much in there so I will take advantage of window shopping online.
    Have a great day

    I added the OEM spoiler. In Raven Black, it was on nationwide back order for over a month. Just got it 2 weeks ago. $449 from Cadillac not including installation.

    This my sound like a silly question, but where does one get the replacement LED bulbs for the real plate? Are they something I can just pick up at Autozone?

    You might be able to pick them up locally but here is a direct link to where several of us purchased the bulbs for our rear license plates:
