    Re: Black Chrome Grille pics?

    I like it and then I don't. I am still on the fence if I want one of these or not. I know I want to get rid of the bright finish but I also know I don't want to wrap all the trim.

    Re: Black Chrome Grille pics?

    Trying to figure out the difference between the stock grille, the bright chrome, and black chrome.... Maybe those with the black chrome can chime in...

    So I see pictures of two of the cars given to the press early on, the first a Premium V6 the other a Premium Turbo, and the two horizontal bars going to the badge stand out on the first car (or is it just sunlight glare):

    1) Is the V6 above equipped with the "bright chrome" grille or is that just lighting? Does the bright chrome grille "shine up" the two horizontal bars compared to stock? Or - if both cars have the same grille - what does the bright chrome grille do differently as there are no good pictures of it?

    2) Is the black chrome grille just the same as the stock one with the surround in a "black chrome"? For a $455 part that's kinda lame if you ask me... I was hoping all of the plastic would be dipped...

    Photo #1 is what I like - brighter accents to the 2 horizontal bars. I don't think I want them to be the same as the rest of the surrounding chrome trim, but a lighter shade of gray to stand out seems like a nice change. Just need to find a spare grille to experiment with that doesn't cost $200+

    This is mine, but artistic view, not sure if you can see what you want , i can take another picture if you want
    It's very difficult to take a picture because it's black but shinny, so it looks like stainless on the front but it's not, it just a reflection from light and white wall of my garage

    Here you can see better, the around the grill trim is stainless

    Aha, thanks. It's lighter than I thought but looks great. I can't open the attachments. If you can take some pics in regular lighting that would be great.

    Wait, my grille is also darker on the inside highlights. I think the black chrome is even darker. Here is a pic from GM

    I'm torn between the 2 that e&g offer, I like the finer mesh, but the pics in earlier post with looser mesh looks awesome, very cts-v-ish....I like this one

    I like the all black grille, (aftermarket)...black chrome is really subtle, and doesn't match the rest of the cars trim, I think it being solid black eliminates having to mess with door handles and window trim, being that Cadillac only offers grill and rear fascia in black chrome.
