    Painted grill on white Escalade looks really nice. I think the aftermarket chrome grills take away from the aggressive front end of the Escalade. So painting it would keep that same look but would look really clean with the monochromatic look.

    thanks for the advice. how much should something like this cost me? the dealer says around $300, is that a little pricey?

    I have been interested in this aswell, but unsure if the whole grill is painted or if the chrome trim is left. Does anybody have pics of the black?

    Whered u get it for $150. I live in Los Angeles and I wanted to do the same thing and my dealer quoted me $300. I figured that was too much considering the entire car's paint job is like $1500

    check this link. i have a diamond white and was also thinking of getting the grill painted and someone from the forum sent me a pic of theres painted diamond white. and the shop was prbably charging you that much cause its a lot harder to color match the diamond white. the shop i went to was charging me the samething. he said if i had any other color like black, silver sand etc. it would be a lot less.

    I kinda of like the chrome on the white escalades because of the way the light reflects off it at night. But either way would work

    that's the thing with chrome, it looks cool at night. especially if your truck is all shined up too.
