I saw a CTS V at a dealer yesterday and because I had an E&G mesh grille installed on my own 04 CTS,I examined it very closely.It is exactly the same,no differance whatsoever.The mesh pattern may look differant in pictures,but the real thing is the same X pattern.The surrounding chrome strip on the V is thicker.I paid $495 which included installation;I'll bet if you get it from Caddy it will be 700 at least.
