I've been reading for a while, but what are the most recommended mods?

I'd like support for DVD in motion, Bluetooth and Ipod integration primarily.

Thanks.

Thanks for the welcome. I've tried posting pics, but they don't go through. I suspect it is a restriction since I'm a newbie posting here.

Welcome to the Forum, and congrats on your new truck, wanted a platinum but not at the price GM is charging, just too much for what they give you.

thatcoder,

Beautiful truck and congrats. I am very envious of you as I want the Platinum edition Escalade also.

Can I ask what your sticker MSRP was and what you actually paid?

Off topic: What the heck kind of finish is on your garage floor? I love how it reflects. I have been thinking about doing mine with something...tile....epooxy...paint....etc. Need somehting that can stand up to road salt too.

Thanks! It stands up pretty well to the salt in your PA home Carl?

After looking over the Platinum, I did like the leather color (milk chocolate), but it didn't quite go with the champagne carpet, too much contrast. :cookoo:

However I did like the wheel design, and the best part was the console lid with the recessed pocket on top, finally someone was thinking! :yup:

Sure--the only difference is getting it to match color-wise, unless you have the Ebony.

I have the cashmere interior, so you are right, that may be the "fly in the ointment"! :mad:

The lid is not the same. Escalade has bi-level lid Tahoe, Yukon lid is just the top of the console
