: 2013 XTS Appearance Mods???

There have been two XTS appearance mods I've observed so far. First, there was a Black Raven XTS Luxury model (it had the "fog lights" which the base model, regrettably, does not include) and it had a Body Side Molding in Black Raven with a chrome insert--and this looked fine on the car, although it is doubtful it was effective, and it may have made the car look "longer and lower." Second, this car showed up on-line, featuring custom wheels and chrome inserts on the roof pillars:

needz moar fender vents.

The XTS doesn't strike me as the kind of car that will see many appearance mods. Or mods of any kind.

The XTS would look good with a nice drop and bigger wheels.

E&G already has aftermarket grilles advertised for the car and btw the heavy mesh grille sets the car off!! I'm waiting to see someone put 84s n vogues on the xts

Chrome piller covers?

The pillar covers aren't that bad...

No. But they do break up the sweeping chrome line of the window surround. Check out the red CTS coupe in the background. Reminds me of the pillar-less hardtop look of the '60's. Much cleaner look. My opinion of course.....

Yeah, I noticed that and thought the coupe looked really nice.

I don't understand why chrome pillar covers are tasteless when all the other trim surrounding the window is chrome.

that other chrome trim is there to make it look like there is no pillar ... adding the chrome pillars defeats the purpose ... and looks tacky

JimmyH

If it was me, I'd probably blackout all the chrome. I hate chrome.

It's why you have a tasteful display for your Star Wars dolls instead of flooding the basement with them.


Oh, nevermind...

As I've said elsewhere, I personally like a Caddy with WSW's. But that aside,this is a really nice angle shot of the XTS. Emphasizes the continuity of the body lines. Definitely does NOT look like a Lacrosse here.

Browsing the web, I spotted this 2013 Cadillac XTS (Luxury package) posted on a dealer web-site from Illinois that has a set of 20" Vogue Wheels and Tyres, a mesh grill and a cloth roof:

re post #24; hideous comes to mind (but if the car sells, and they who bought it likes it, my opinion is moot)

The cloth top is horrid. Not a fan of the wheels either, but I know soon we will be seeing worse.

No, my opinion remains, as hideous; that my opinion means anything (to a potential buyer) is moot. (though 'moo' could fit somewhere between hideous and bovine)

say what you want, but I see DTS with those wheels/tires and that top all the time. A couple weeks ago, I saw two of them a quarter mile apart.

The cloth top makes it look like some retarded abortion of a convertible.

I've seen lovely pictures of Marilyn Monroe in a bikini but that doesn't mean Rosie ODonnell is going to look good in one. On the DTS forum there are pictures of that car with a half (biarritz) roof and the car looks great. But personally I don't think the proportions of the XTS work well with the padded roof. Might look different in person, though, since the XTS in person is much more attractive than in photos....

I don't like either of them. But that doesn't mean I am right if I say they are ugly.

I think LED lights are hideous, and the guy who introduced them to the automotive world should be hung.

I don't see how wishing someone be very nicely sexually endowed has anything to do with this conversation. Perhaps you wanted to say he should be hanged.....????

I think this looks freaking amazing. Planning on getting the new flagship once it comes out and adding the same package.
