They look like they are part of the body style.

    Anyway I took them off to see if I could make it a little different and wanted to post a couple of pictures to get some feedback.

    One is without the cadillac symbol and the other with it to see which way I should go.

    Let me know what you think, with the symbol or without or place it in a different place on the splash guard. Once I get some ideas and if I leave it on it, I will add a few more clear costs over the symbol.

    Thanks,

    Re: Splash Guards

    Based on what I have read on this thread, I just ordered the front ones for my 2012 coupe. Despite the little piece of plastic installed by Cadillac on the forward portion of the rear fender bulge, the rock chips are starting to show up Hopefully the front splash guards will help minimize the chips. Do you think the rear ones will fit the rear of the coupe?

    Max, the pictures are the ones for the rear. The ones for the front, work really well but you need to modify them to actually fit but I like the way they turned out on the front.
    The rear guards are just install and go.

    Re: Splash Guards

    Akami43,
    What model of CTS do you have? The reason for the question is, I have The Premium model 2010 CTS AWD Sportswagon which may have a slightly different rocker panel shape from the Luxury or Performance models. Out of curiosity, I went down to the dealer to see if he had the 2009 splash guards in stock to check out the fit but no, they were available for $50 but had to be special ordered. If your fitting success with the 2009 splash guards was to a Premium model, I might go ahead and place an order for the rears. I hate getting all of the winter crud all over the rear.

    Harley03joe,
    Did you ever complete your intent to installing splash guards on you Premium 2012 CTS?

    I don't see why they wouldn't fit the 2009 model. I have the 2013 CTS Sedan RWD Premium and when I bought them, it came with instructions that showed the years they fit and 2009 was part of the list. It didn't say any specifics like luxury, performance etc.

    Re: Splash Guards

    I just installed rear splash guards on my 2010 CTS Wagon. The are a perfect fit with exception of the fastener hole alignment. You have to drill three new holes for each splash guard after removing the original fixture tabs.
    It will require removing the wheel for access to drill and install the screws. Process took me one hour to install the two guards. Purchsed GM part # 17802090 for $45 with free shipping on Ebay. The splash guards only come in black and my car is white. Since they are close proximity to the tires, black doesn't look bad on a white car.

    Re: Splash Guards

    Thanks Forum members for this valuable discussion and resource. I just took ownership of a 2010 CTS4 Sport Wagon in Red (Replacing an Audi A4 Avant Quattro wagon. CTS passed my expectations). I can see that the body panels will be subject to road debris and sand kicked up by the tires. My local dealer parts guy here in CA said splash guards were not made or available for CTS models. I will pick up a set pronto.

    Re: Splash Guards

    Using the GM Part #s 17802090 & 17802080, I ordered front and rear splash guards for my 2010 CTS4 Premium Sport Wagon from e-Bay. My local auto paint dealer mixed up some Crystal Red (claret) spray paint for me and some SEM flex primer. He did not list a red tint coat so I used a flex clearcoat.

    Rear splash guards fit perfectly. Front ones only needed a tweak to match the corner radius of the lower rocker panel (about 1/4 inch. As you can see, I drilled 4 (3 + an extra) new holes to mount the fronts. color-matched looks good on the Wagon.
