    Re: When did they paint the grills?

    maybe yoiur nigfhtvision was done by the dealer and they stocked thsoe charcoal unpainted grills for the addon. Every DTS ni have seen 00'05 jhave body colored grills except for the chrome on the top. If the dealer instaleld the nightvision im sure theys tocked unpainted grills w/out crests for the option.

    i see at least 8 or 9 DTS on the road a day, all body colored grills except for the people that bought a chrome grill and hood orni

    I've got a chrome grill, I should just pop it off and spray it with a good quality spray paint or something.

    Father-laws 01 DTS (NO night vision) is body colored (Silver). I have never seen a black one on a DTS before.

    Re: When did they paint the grills?

    I'd like to get my hands on a black one to replace my chrome one for sure. Even better if it had a blacked out emblem in the middle of it.

    When I get my mesh grill I'd be willing to sell my black one but it has the night vision hole in it. The emblem I think it the standard DTS emblem for that year.

    That is so weird because I'm seeing the opposite of everyone else. Maybe it's a conspiracy?

    Gee maybe I ought to keep my black grill since I'm the only one that has one.
