    personally i think it would look even better with the led lights... but i find them a bit too pricey for less light... but looking at it is definately a nice look. nice job guys

    No, thats the original non-platinum chrome hood molding. It actually looks a lot better with the premium platinum painted grill. If you get a regular all chrome platinum grill I would add the platinum hood molding as well, but if you go with the painted look you can use your current hood molding

    Good job Baggedlvintegra. Looks good. I never tried the upper rad shrout. But then it didn't cost me too much.

    I personally don't like the LED headlights. I added 6000k park lights, daytime running lights, headlights and fog lights. It looks nice at night. I'll try to post a pic with the park/head/fog light soon.

    Wouldn't mind doing the rear bumper too.

    Yeah the shroud is cheap (~$30) but I figured I try to install everything first then go get it if I needed to, but everything worked out fine without it.

    I agree, the LED Platinum Headlights are a bit over the top and EXPENSIVE. I did find a set CHEAP here locally but I read its hard (wiring and BCI flashes) to get them to work on 07s so I just let it go. I too have 6k led parking, 6k led DRL, 6k HID bulbs and 6k HID fogs, I love the look!

    I did the rear bumper today as well, check out my other thread...

    Thanks againg BlownEscalade for all the help along the way, it made it much easier!

    Yeah losing the spare tire is kind of a bummer but (knock on wood) in all the vehicles I've ever had I've never been in a situation where I actually needed to use it. My last vehicle (1 ton diesel truck lifted 10"s) couldnt even use a spare period, the suspension and wheel offsets were all custom and stock wheels wouldnt fit even if I had them so I'm kind of used to it. The biggest suprise to me is that Cadillac is even selling vehicles with no spare tire from the factory! That just blows my mind. They come with a portable air compressor deal but that does you absolutely NO GOOD when you have a blowout or major air leak.

    Yeah I do lots of highway driving and don't feel like being stuck middle of nowhere waiting for a tow truck. Used onstar once and it was horrible. Was waiting over 4 hrs for a tow truck. I'd rather change it myself and be on my way.

    ^ exactly! If I traveled long trips often there is no way I would have done the mod, but I never have a normal commute over 10 miles so I think I'm safe
