    Re: 2007 front clip to platinum edition

    Cannot guarantee any of these, verify with parts department before using. If using a 2007/2008 as base I would use a 2009 VIN and try to match for ESV/non ESV. EXT's should use ESV Vin's, and ESV/EXT rear doors are the same. Color match if you can. Sorry it is the best I can do for colors. Never did find a Quicksilver one I could get a Vin from. The Center Console on EXT's is different for heating/cooling to the rear from all other Escalades so the EXT's ducting and rear panel must be used when swapping to Platinum console. The USB port in the later model/Platinum console's is part of the console's/Amp's wiring harness.

    If you get a complete front fascia, those should be the only things you will need to complete the conversion. I don't remember the parameters you had but some wiring changes may be required if you convert to Led headlights, if not, you would be good to go.

    Re: 2007 front clip to platinum edition

    Grilles do not interchange. The platinum grille extends all the way to the crease line you see on the regular grill. The fogs will interchange, so basically you need both grilles, the front fascia, the corner braces, the rear Styrofoam support, the upper radiator cover/shroud, the fender liners, and the hood front chrome piece...Somewhere before I documented all this. If you get an assembly, you will get all of it except the upper radiator cover, fender liners and hood chrome piece.

    Re: 2007 front clip to platinum edition

    I ordered everything on the front blowout including two braces I'm real sure I don't need. But with the vin
    Provided on this link it was a breeze going and ordering it from the dealer. I didn't order the headlights either... They look badass but I like the brightness of the hid.

    How much did the conversion run you? Also did you buy the front fascia as waterking suggested?

    Congratulation on your conversion looking forward to the pictures.
