    Regarding Trim On the 2003 Model

    I'm thinking about getting a 2003 DHS, but it looks like those might have a 2-dimensional emblem instead of a regular hood ornament. Am I correct?

    From what I've found,
    DHS hood/grille 1: http://i.imgur.com/XWYrKcZ.jpg
    DHS hood/grille 2: http://i.imgur.com/PXzEZ20.jpg
    Base hood/grille:http://i.imgur.com/9Ltn55y.jpg

    Are those aftermarket, or an actual part of the car? And if they are standard, is it possible to replace them with a normal hood ornament?

    Thanks.

    Nevermind, looks like the DTS model has the ugly emblem, the DHS has no emblem, and the Base has the standard emblem.
    In related news, automobile-catalog.com is awesome.

    The base Deville has no grille emblem, it has a hood ornament.

    The DHS and DTS have no hood ornament, they have grille emblems. The DHS grille is dark grey plastic, the DTS grille is body colored.

    When a DHS or DTS is equipped with night vision, the grille has a hole for the night vision camera, where the emblem would normally be.

    BTW, .

    Those are standard, and I would celebrate them as they indicate that your car has the fairly rare night vision option!
