    Yes Carl, but don't forget about the new and improved ESCALADE badge re-positioning - not to mention the rubber mat in the cubby. That is where your 10K will go. The new key and fob are just icing on the cake.

    Wow, this is the key fob I was waiting for, looks great and the key color match.
    Happy for u to have a classy key and fob for your classy SUV.
    If one can order the new fob , can you program it to work on the 07s ?
    And what is the item number ?

    My Service Advisor at my dealer tells me that they don't believe the '08 remote can be made to work with an '07 vehicle - but he admits that they haven't tried it yet so he's not sure....... Anyone verify one way or the other???

    I was over on the Corvette site and the same question came up there as well. I know we are talking apples and oranges, but the 08 Corvette FOB that looks just like the one above does retrofit to the 05-07 models(C6). Hopefully the 08 Escalade FOB will retrofit to the 07's.

    Re: 08' Key fob

    I contacted Cadillac in regards of this issue, but they replied that I should contact a Cadillac dealer for compatibility issues.
    So I did call like 5 Dealers in the NY and NJ area, The NY Dealers at the parts dept were like a little bit rude and said they cannot answer my request and hung up, but the NJ Dealers said that they cannot confirm if they are compatible since they didn't try it yet , so they cannot give me a clear answer without trying but they doubt it that it will work. Only if I am willing to buy the remotes and try it myself.
    But you know since the new remote is mentioned in the 07's owners manual so it should work, I don't know......
    anybody did try it or ......

    Just left my dealer - the Service Manager says they have confirmed that the 2008 remote will not work on 2007 vehicles.
    They're actually kind of ugly in real life. He says they've gotten complaints about how bulky & heavy the new one is (definitely looks better, though....)

    Anybody else found a dealer with a different opinion?

    Re: 08' Key fob

    I just had a 2008 SRX as a rental car - the new remote looks great, but it is way too big. And heavy too. Even if it did work with an 07, does not seem worth the extra size/weight in your pocket.

    It's a GM Accessory, not a bundled item.

    As far as the new fob, I dont care how much it weighs, it is light years ahead of that hideous round thing GM had been using for ages. Unfortunately, they still elected to keep the key SEPARATE and not do a switchblade style key, or key/fob combo which makes less bulk on your keychain.

    Re: 08' Key fob

    I just talked with superiorcadillacgmc with their Parts Dept after Emailing Scott Pratt and Ryan the guy over there was extremely helpful and polite.
    He asked me for the part number that I have on my remote to check if they work with 2008, but I had my remote which the part number is totally washed off so I didn't know which one I had, but he told me that one of the 2007 remotes will not work which has as a part number ending in 3421, but the others should work.
    So when I get home I will check my other unused remote to check the part # on it.
    and it is 115.79 $ / keyfob. and can ship it to you , but you need to take your car to the dealer for reprograming.
