    2010 CTS-V Underhood Appearance Package, what is this?

    I had some time to kill so I went to Cadillac.com and went through the build your own 2010 CTS-V portion of the website and they had an option that was labeled as: "underhood appearance package" and cost $110.00.

    Anyone know what this entails? I tried clicking on it to see if there was a picture of the option, but nothing.

    Perhaps some cheesy decal applications? Scott/Tony?

    Also curious about the 'hood protector' for $150.
    My clear XPel protectant cost a lot more than that, but I had more than the hood done.

    I've asked the same question ("Anybody know what the "LPO, Underhood Appearance Package" for $110 is?") in two other threads without getting a knowledgeable reply.

    In the SPO site, Hoodprotector is shown as:
    Urethane Film: Help shied the hood of your car from stone damage with this custom designed clear hood-protector that provides precise fit by following the contours of the hood.

    I saw a mention of the appearance package as a carbon fiber engine cover but I can't find it anywhere else

    MReiland,

    That is definitely worth it! Do you know what the underhood appearance package is or can you find out?

    I was under the impression that it is a fake carbon fiber looking engine cover.

    Thanks in advance for any information you can find out.

    I thought it was an underhood liner with an emblem or something of that sort. I'm waiting for a salesman to get back to me on it, hopefully with a pic!

    According to the online order/reference guide, the underhood appearance package is available for the CTS, but not the CTS-V.

    According to the Cadillac website, it is available as an option for the CTS-V.

    Check it out.

    As I recall, both the website and the online ordering guide have been less than 100% accurate, from time to time. Neither one offers a clue to what the darned "package" is, though.

    I assumed it was a painted engine cover matched to the exterior but what the hell do I know....

    I'm afraid I haven't gotten an answer from the salesman yet. I even emailed him and no response...

    To make a long story short we weren't too happy with our previous salesman, one never called back when he said he would as soon as a 2010 brochure came in, and the third stopped calling back as well so we are considering who to call. (All from a dealer with a very high customer satisfaction rating!!!)
