Okay, maybe I did a crazy thing, bought a 2003 Escalade XS-525 sight unseen, though with photos and description on e-bay. I had been scoping out the xs-500 but this was the first 525 I saw. Cant find any information on this model anywhere on the internet. Anyone have any information, suggestions, or links to info on this vehicle, or have any clue as to what I'm in for... I am going to need to get this transported from AZ to Gainesville.

A new Cadillac owner,

i have never heard of this model... to be honest there is not such thing as an XS-500... if i am not mistaken all that the XS-500 is, is an aftermarket package that gives a lowering kit and supercharger and i think wheels.. it was given through Vogue Tyres which some Cadillac dealers were using. however i never ever heard of a 525.. sounds like some guy that just put some numbers on their to make it sound different and exotic... but again no escalade came from the factory with that package.. its just aftermarket stuff added on

I think the exs-525 was also a dealer-installed package with supercharger, etc.. What I was told is that Lund Cadillac in AZ made 200-300 of these, or 200-300 were made overall, though I could not find any other like packages. Here are a couple of pics: http://cpancf.com/images/2%20emblem%20P1070310.JPG

THanks for your reply - features a Vortech supercharger,

I e-mailed Lund Cadillac in AZ which reportedly serviced the vehicle and had built the EXS-525 package - I havent heard from them. Cadillac (national) can give me info on how it levft factory only.

I own an EXS-525 from Lund. Mine is an upgraded 2003 EXT.

There are variations, but mine included:
Vortec intercooled supercharger
Volant intake box
new injectors & fuel pump
stitched "EXS-525" floormats
chrome exhaust tip
lowered springs (2"/3")

It dyno'd at 550.9 hp at Lund before they shipped it to me in April '03.

Look me up as BadMister on CarDomain for pics. Lot's of changes since I bought it, though.

I don't know if you are anywhere near the Tampa area (drejb) but I think I almost sold my 2003 Navigator to the guy who used to own that EXS-525 right around the time you purchased it. He did state he was selling it, and it was on Ebay. As uncommon as they are, I'd think it had to have been him.
