[Greetings everyone...
For your edification, information, and consideration, I am attaching
photos of some enhancements I have done to my 2011 SRX.
Picture 1 shows the protective, pre-painted side molding I have
attached. Color match was perfect, and a snap to install. I had
selected Lloyds Mats for my floor coverings, Ultimat Series, in
Color 670. (Color is perception, but in my humble opinion, I think
this as close a match you will find to go with Cadillac's Shale/Brownstone
interior). The workmanship and fit is fabulous, as well the quality of the
rug material. I also opted for their 2nd seat, one piece rug. That is really
great, as well. Incidentally, the net in the rear deck comes from my 2005
STS. It fits quite well and is attached by four aluminum spring clips.
Neat for securing bags of groceries, and assorted loose projectiles. :cool2:

Bye the bye, that hippo you may have observed in my
rear deck area, is not a Cadillac accesory. Actually,
I have been collecting these little buggers (hippos)
for well over 40 years! I have quite an extensive
collection, including wall covering in my den of hippos
riding motorcycles. The wall covering was designed
and produced by the artist Boynton.
(No one ever said I was well)

Nice ride & great job! Thx for sharing. I too have a net from a previous ride, but like you, after attaching to both lower D-ring hooks, I screwed in 2 plastic hooks about 14" above the chrome hooks and attached top of net there. Now it stands straight up and down, near rear of cargo area like many OEM nets. Very convenient. :)

Everything looks great. Where did you buy the pre-painted side molding?

I had purchased the Painted Body Side Moldings from
the 'Sportwing' Company on 8/31/2010. Great Customer
Service Department inasmuch as they added the new 2011
Mocha Steel Metallic color to their selection for me.

All the Lloyds Mats were ordered through the 'CarId' Company.
Also, great people to deal with!

Nice hippos ick! Your photos reminded me I need new floor mats, and these look sweet. Lloyd's Mats.....got to look them up. Thank you for the pics, they really help.

Update: are those Lloyd's custom fitted delux floormats with the Caddy logos through CarId as nice as they are expensive? WOW! Think I'll have to peddle my body on the street to get them and then keep all passengers out of the SRX.

Yes. They're so nice you'll park the car and lock it! That's why I went Huskyliner.......

I think $210 all 3 rows/areas......

Yes, Lloyds mats are a tad "salty". But, as the saying goes,
"You only get what you pay for"

PJ, you make me sound like a tropical fish disease. (10/26) Actually my name is concealed
in my e-mail moniker. Unless you are older than dirt, like I am, you probably never
heard of "pig latin" Therego, ickday is pig latin for Dick. Hopefully, you have some
old farts in your circle of friends that possibly could explain how that works. Egardsray!

i've got the grey flannel as well---so the mocha steel metallic is the color to match?

If your SRX is grey flannel, you do not want the Mocha!
Sportwing will work you through the proper procedure
for ordering.
