Cadillac Escalade, EXT and ESV Forum - 1999 - 2006 Discussion, Escalade owner roll call in Cadillac Escalade Forums; From the big T.O. I enjoy checking out the site daily. It would be a shame to have it removed. ...
hey wiz357, what kind of upgraded lights do you have??
I wanted to install 03 or newer HID light, but I could not find any info or any competent installers that would it. Instead I just replaced it with aftermarket HID. All the other exterior light bulbs in the truck were replace with a brighter PIAA bulbs.
I lurk, as there are generally excellent responses, unless I have something significant that another has not already presented.
I'm Bill, 43 years old, married, wonderful wife, wooly mammoth black lab, 2002 White Escalade AWD, twenty miles on odo at purchase. Escalade exterior aesthetics a bit "over the top" for my taste, but I make vehicle purchases based on product not profile, and was very impressed with technical attributes of driveline and secondary system components.
1)Grill painted white.
2)ESCALADE emblems removed from tailgate and front doors.
3)Stock audio system except:
3a)N-7785V by David Navone; two channels full range out to Alpine MRV-T420 running down to 65Hz to Infinity Kappa Perfect 6.1s replacing rear door speakers.
3b)N-7785V; two channels low pass to Alpine MRV-T500 to pair of JBL 8" woofers in ported tear drop enclosures.
3c)N-7785V; adjustable line-outs from 0 volts to 9.5 volts to facilitate 1:3 gain structure.
4)K&N in stock box air filter.
5)Detailed to the nth degree w/ Meguiar's Deep Crystal System and DeWalt electronically regulated rotary.
I'm completely satisfied with my Escalade, but was sad to hear about subsequent year's "de-contenting". As an allergy sufferer, the 10 micron air-filter is profoundly appreciated. In white with tinted front door windows it looks like the vehicle of choice for Imperial Storm Troopers. The exterior appearance is really starting to grow on me. Stealthy in an Ohio-Class Trident ballistic missile submarine sort of way. I call her "The Enterprise". Powerful and Smooth.
