I like the real V grille over the E&G one and it is cheeper. I would love to put the CTS-V front end on my SRX, do you know if that will work. I would need to check on cost too.
The CTS front fascia is smaller than the SRX. From looking at the picture link that was shown on the other post, it looks like there are mesh inserts on the lower section of the SRX. Hope you find what you need.
Is the top grille easy to install? Do the screws just pop off on the old ones?
About a dozen retainers. Most of us that has done this by clipping the old retainers with side cutters and replace with new ones. Pop the new ones in from the top side, its easier. Side retainers a bit difficult to reach
I have an 05 CTS. And they have about 4 black retainers (I guess thats what you call them) holding in the factory grille. I can't pop those damn things off though.
I'M BETTING YOU GOT 12 RETAINERS. FOUR ARE AT THE TOP. THE THINGS ARE CHEAP. GET'EM AT YOUR PARTS DEPARTMENT. SIDE CUTTER WORK FINE. THEIR ALL ACCESSIBLE FROM THE BACK OFF THE GRILL. THE ONE ON THE SIDE ARE A LITTLE TOUGHER. YOU'LL NOTICE THE RETAINERS ARE INSTALLED FROM THE BACK SIDE. WHEN YOU REINSTALL, INSERT THEM FROM THE TOP AT THE REAR OF THE GRILL. THAT'S A MUST! NO FRIGIN' WAY CAN YOU INSTALL LIKE AT THE FACTORY. IT DOESN'T MATTER SINCE EITHER SIDE HOLD THE GRILL IN PLACE. THIS IS THE WAY THE REST OF US HAVE DONE IT. GOOD LUCK. SORRY FOR THE CAP LOCK
