I've seen several references to the "platinum" grille used in the (Chinese). Seems like a very attractive alternative to the stock 05 to 07 STS grille.

Can anyone confirm that the fit is actually correct for the 05 to 07 (US) STS?

Was it ever offered as an option on the US STS ?

Platinum edition had it. I don't *think* there are any other pieces needed to fit it to the standard (non-ACC) 2005-2007 cars.

Good idea. I may watch the ads for a while and see if I can find a used one. Maybe someone with the platinum option will replace with a mesh or custom grille and want to unload.

My base grille has a small piece of the finish layer chipped off. I may try to fill in and touch up, and live with that until I settle on a replacement.

I may also see if an add-on chrome strip kit or sheet goods will cover it.
