    Trying to figure out option packages, 04 DHS...odd combos

    I have an 04 DHS which has options that overlap into the livery package or so it seems. A vin check calls the car a DHS but it has the digital dash, alloy wheels, not chromed and side curtains in the rear as well as the power sunshade with the reading lamps which I thought were only on the livery package? The car seems to be DHS loaded save for the sunroof. Were there "dual package" cars made?



    A lady friend who was in the car today said it looked like it was a car someone was driven around in but damned if I can find any wear in the rear area...or the front for that matter. This car certainly didn't sit, it has 135000mi on it but it looks/feels/smells like new and there is no aftermarket anywhere on or in it. I'm wondering if I might have an odd but very well cared for duck (my last Caddy was).

    The sunshade was a DHS feature, and those rims are aftermarket.

    Commercial chassis cars will have RPO code FE7 on the RPO label on the underside of the spare tire cover.

    Agreed on the rims...







    I have no idea what these are??? But they do look right.

    The only FE codes on the sticker were FE1, FE9.

    FE1 is correct for a DHS (and base).

    Ok, I got the FE1 "soft ride" and the FE9 being related to emissions but what about those reading lamps? I was under the impression that they were only available on the "livery" trim level, mind you I suppose you could order whatever you liked for a price.

    Reading lights in the headliner? Those were standard on all models.

    Ok, just above the door toward the rear of the door, yes, in the headliner. Now, the digital dash, the rear/side pull-up screens? This whole car looks like someone, in late 03~early 04 wanted privacy.

    Update: The neighbour's wife just told me that it looked like a private/corporate limo...from a fat cat owner in the back seat to a flat broke (not just yet) owner in the front seat. That is now two women that have told me that my car looks like a private limo...perhaps it was and I thank the party that paid for it for me...I bought it for what it was worth, not what was originally asked for it.

    Yes, those are the standard lights.

    The dash, I'm not sure. I don't know if it was optional. It is possible to swap one in, but that's probably unlikely.

    The dash I might perhaps attribute to the differences between the CAN/USA models...oh yeah, the seats rub my back...hot or cold...carry on, never mind...um, what was I saying?

    I am not sure about the side screens, but the power rear screen is a DHS only feature. It should also have chrome DHS on the lower right of the deck lid as seen near the end of this video.

    I think he's talking about the sun shades in the doors which are DHS along with the power sunshade in the deck.

    That's what I was talking about as well.
