    Looks pretty decent in silver actually but I agree with Nik. it will look better painted.

    Also, get that chrom strip painted.

    I gonna run around for a couple of weeks with it and try to decide, Stealth's car is kind of the blueprint for what im tryin' to go for. He left the chrome and i might too depending on the wheels i get. Had some CV7 20's in mind but dude flaked at the VERY last min. So if i end up with chrome wheels i'll leave it, if i go matte silver or body color wheels i'll do the same to the strip.

    Dang I never realized David left his chrome strip on there! Either way, Im sure it will look better with it removed.

    Tuff to find for a good price, gmpartsdirect.com is one place, its $$$ though. Got a great deal on mine off of ebay, had been looking FOREVER for one. Alot of the people here have a 07 that came with it from the factory.

    Couldn't end this reply with out mentioning - What to buy my V grille?

    Yeah i got my WW's like 6 months ago! Im a Pu**y about the oven/apoxy gimmick. Flip said he'd do it if i sent him the fogs/sidemarkers and paid for shipping. Its Xmas and the $$$ runnin' short. The only reason i spent cash on the caddy at this time of year is the grille was priced CRAZY right. No way i was letting that go!

    In order of importance:
    Paint the new grille and my bumper BlueChip
    20" Rims that fit, and a deal that doesn't fall through!
    Install WW's

    Maybe by the summer the Caddy will be mostly done... is it ever really done though?

    Damn AmerLux, sorry to hear your wheels didn't come to fruition - that flakey bastard!

    Didn't someone on here say they could get 20" CV7's w/ Tires for like $2400???

    I'm really curious to know how much those Irmshir 20's cost imported form Germany. If the price and availability is right, I MIGHT put my Vogues up on the auction block... (only because the wife thinks my CV7's are "a bit much" Hahaha)

    And hey, the WW's are a PITA but one look at your car after a gruelling day of stress and frustration makes it all worth it!!!

    Who did you buy your sport grille from on ebay? I bought mine back in September and just received it like a week ago !!! Did you have to take your bumper cover off to install it?

    Some dude in Kansas City... No bumper removal, but it would have helped i bet during the install! Hard to get to the bottom pins so i didn't use every single pin that i took out.

    First because i'll be taking right back off to paint it soon.
    Second because does the grille really need 27 pins?

    HawkPhoto, let me know FIRST if you choose to sell the vouges!
