View Full Version : oem grille color

I am looking to do a swap of my non-V bumper to V but need to know what color is the oem upper and lower grille since its hard to tell from photos. Is it silver or chrome (the mesh part)?

On my 2009 V sedan and my 2011 V wagon were both chrome plastic mesh looking. It's not stainless steel mesh like the V1.

The shape of the grille is different, too, so you can't paint your old grille and make it fit. The hood is different, too, so the V grille might not fit on the CTS hood, either. If you do get a V grille, you can now get a dark chrome grille as an accessory instead of the usual chrome grille.
