    Thanks for the pitures. I know I'm going to be in the minority, but I like the stock one better. Does ANYBODY agree with me ?

    I agree that the original CTS grill follows the art&science design philosophy much closer, but GM made a bad decision making it plastic. I like how it looks when painted body color and would be interested in seeing someone chrome one.

    I also really like the chainmail like appearance of the V. Really goes well with the wreath and crest. Very 'knightly'.

    Yea I agree, the stock one should match the body color, that almost always looks tons better than straight grey plastic

    yup. i saw one at the dealership the other day. the stock grill was painted black and it looked much much better. i wonder how much it is to get it painted? i'm still deciding on paintin the stock or swaping to V. depends on which is cheaper...
