    Decided to add the front emblem back to my aftermarket grill. I used the cts-v emblem, what do you guys think? I think it looks better, picture sucks though. I'm going to remove the front license plate as well. It's the first picture

    Re: Emblem

    Hmmmm. When I first got my grill, it had the larger (I believe it's from an Escalade) emblem like that, and I hated the look with my smaller mesh. Had to get an OEM cts emblem.

    With the thicker mesh however, I think that looks awesome! Well done!

    Cool thanks! Anyone think I should keep the front plate or ditch it? I think it would look better without the plate now. Or maybe change the plate to one that says Cadillac in the cursive font?

    Like this one

    Or this one

    Which would look best on the front of a diamond white cts? Or should I just leave the plate off?

    I think it looks good. I'd say remove the plate, but won't that leave you with holes in the front bumper? I'd suggest the script Cadillac plate or possibly the V emblem.

    I think so too, really pisses me off the previous owner had that plate mounting kit put on there. I'll just take the plate mount off, repair the holes and repaint the bumper. I've also thought about customizing the front bumper with an opening similar to the 2nd gen cts-v lower grill. I'll have to draw up some plans first.
