    Cadillac CTS Chrome Grill Inserts

    Has anyone tried these out? Do you have a particular ebay vendor that you would recommend? I am a little nervous with the comments on some of these ebay sites, ie the chrome grill add-ons that use a 3M adhesive...

    It seems like it would make the CTS grill look a lot better... but i just dont trust it yet. If you have any experience with these, please let me know!

    beanjapan,I purchased these on e-bay for my 2010 Black FE3. Install was very easy quality was excellent and the pictures you are looking at don't due the end effect justice.My personal opinion is that they make the front end more attractive than my neighbors V. Go ahead and install,you will be pleased.

    Re: Cadillac CTS Chrome Grill Inserts

    On my 08 I had a painted grill, for my 2010 I decided to try these chrome inserts and I am very happy with their appearance. I don't remember the ebay seller I got them from but they were something like $89 plus $15 shipping.
    Just remember to clean the grill with alcohol real good before installing the new chrome parts.

    Re: Cadillac CTS Chrome Grill Inserts

    Thank you so much for the information guys! I was mostly wondering on price, and the appearance. I think I'm going to get it soon then. I'll order up the parts off ebay in a little bit. If you have pictures of how yours came out, please post them! :-D

    That looks better than the mesh grill on the new CTS.

    I ordered them as well. I like the look! May I suggest putting a wax on them after installing. The bugs come off easier.

    Can anyone recommend an reputable vendor for these inserts? I Googled the item and found a number of different sellers, none of which I recognize.

    Re: Cadillac CTS Chrome Grill Inserts

    I put these on my black CTS last year, and WOW!!
    My car is like night and day next to my dad's CTS.
    If you think people stared at your before.... just wait!

    I also put on chrome door handles... VERY VERY NICE.... blend in so well with the side vents...


    ...And yesterday, I put on chrome B-pillars!

    I know... I know... a little bling bling, but I think they do look sharp!

    The grille and handles are no brainers. They NEED to be chrome.

    The window trim... I'll have to post some pics..!

    Re: Cadillac CTS Chrome Grill Inserts

    I ordered this set and like everyone has mentioned it is looks soooo nice and makes a big difference in the overall appearance of the front grill. Almost like its a special edition CTS

    Question for anyone that has this grill, One of the bottom peices did is not sitting as good as the rest, it is slightly up and no matter how hard i press it it comes up slightly. Nothing anyone can see by looking at it but of course it bugs me a bit.

    Any suggustions on a type of glue or a way to get this to hold. Its just the corner of the bottom peice.

    Thanks

    Re: Cadillac CTS Chrome Grill Inserts

    I just bought a black 08 CTS and I am going to buy the chrome grill inserts (it looks so nice). I also would like to replace the black plastic pieces where the fog lights and brake duct are. Does someone know where i could find these pieces in chrome.

    Thank's in advance for the answer.
