Anyone have or can find pics of the Cadillac offered black chrome grille? Found a good price, but nothing but one bad fuzzy picture anywhere online.

Thanks in advance

Thanks, but that doesn't resemble the ATS version. The center piece is gloss black and the chrome surround is described as "black chrome". The surround is what I was hoping to see in a better picture. Here is the only pic I can find

Oops Didn't notice this was the ATS forum. That accessory catalog image is the only one I know of right now until someone gets one and can take a pic.

I had my surround painted a satin black as I didn't like the aluminum with Thunder Gray metallic. Would also be interested in an all black grille package if it come with the bottom section and the two side sections also.

It is an upper and lower replacement. I currently have both plasti dipped but dont love the look. Looks too matte and even a little grayish.

Awesome. Thanks for your help. I really want to get a good look at the finish of the surround part where it is currently chrome.

D3 offers black noir Cadillac badges, surprised that it isn't on that car.

I've been meaning to accent paint the two horizontal bars in the upper grille to an argent/dark silver shade to make it stand out a little better. like the way that black chrome grille looks for the same reason, but not sure I'd like the pricing....

This is definitely not the GM grille, but I love it. Can we get more info? Are the lower corners replacements as well. Pic too dark to tell. Im looking to swap those out as well with a better looking piece.

The grille really gives the car an aggressive look. I have been waiting to see what the blacked out grille would look like. Will be ordering mine soon, don't think I want to install it myself though. Great looking ATS, the extra wait time was worth it.

I live in clearwater Florida and Dimmit cadillac did all the work. They also do a lot of performance work too. They have a matte grey cts-v there that looks so sweet!!!

My parts catalog has the Black Chrome ATS grille as #22943164 for $455.00 (list price)

22943264 does not come up as a good part number for me

Yes please. From about 20 feet away and an up close of the chrome against the black hood for color comparison. Thanks. Do you feel the black chrome blends well with the headlight and window trim chrome?

Here it is in daylight. Looks better in person, the black chrome looks too bright in pics.

I like it and then I don't. I am still on the fence if I want one of these or not. I know I want to get rid of the bright finish but I also know I don't want to wrap all the trim.

It's a factory Cadillac grille, got mine at my dealer.

Trying to figure out the difference between the stock grille, the bright chrome, and black chrome.... Maybe those with the black chrome can chime in...

So I see pictures of two of the cars given to the press early on, the first a Premium V6 the other a Premium Turbo, and the two horizontal bars going to the badge stand out on the first car (or is it just sunlight glare):
107456
107457

1) Is the V6 above equipped with the "bright chrome" grille or is that just lighting? Does the bright chrome grille "shine up" the two horizontal bars compared to stock? Or - if both cars have the same grille - what does the bright chrome grille do differently as there are no good pictures of it?

2) Is the black chrome grille just the same as the stock one with the surround in a "black chrome"? For a $455 part that's kinda lame if you ask me... I was hoping all of the plastic would be dipped...

Photo #1 is what I like - brighter accents to the 2 horizontal bars. I don't think I want them to be the same as the rest of the surrounding chrome trim, but a lighter shade of gray to stand out seems like a nice change. Just need to find a spare grille to experiment with that doesn't cost $200+

Anyone have black chrome grille on White Diamond Tricoat?

This is mine, but artistic view, not sure if you can see what you want , i can take another picture if you want
It's very difficult to take a picture because it's black but shinny, so it looks like stainless on the front but it's not, it just a reflection from light and white wall of my garage

Here you can see better, the around the grill trim is stainless

Aha, thanks. It's lighter than I thought but looks great. I can't open the attachments. If you can take some pics in regular lighting that would be great.

Wait, my grille is also darker on the inside highlights. I think the black chrome is even darker. Here is a pic from GM

Black chrome grill and rims...

I'm torn between the 2 that e&g offer, I like the finer mesh, but the pics in earlier post with looser mesh looks awesome, very cts-v-ish....I like this one

Jerzeyboy730
12-27-13, 05:13 PM
I like the all black grille, (aftermarket)...black chrome is really subtle, and doesn't match the rest of the cars trim, I think it being solid black eliminates having to mess with door handles and window trim, being that Cadillac only offers grill and rear fascia in black chrome.

exbagboy
12-30-13, 07:51 PM
I wish they actually made this grille (where the mesh matches the fog light inserts) but it's just a photoshop.

I have both GM black chrome parts installed. Looking to get my window trim wrapped in black chrome vinyl (it's expensive!) and PVD my OE 18s in black chrome. Probably knock the last two items out with my tax return. My car is silver coast metallic.

Regarding the rest, I removed all my lettering badges. I was going to black chrome those (rattle can) but I didn't mark placement and it was too hard to properly align the badging after I painted it.

Are the door handles able to be painted? Just wondering if that's possible with the touch sensors the way they are on the handles.

curious for this as well. I may be finding out for myself this weekend. My handles do not have the touch sensors and it appears there is an allen screw holding the main portion on. I believe the other part is removable for manually locking/unlocking with a key.

alotta the black chrome pics I've seen dont really look that black, if I were keeping my car i'd totally go for the wire mesh grille, it just flows with this car SO WELL!

I had the black chrome rear bumper trim put on my car. I then took my old one while it was off the car and plastidipped it and added the glossifier. I much prefer that look. The black chrome just doesn't have a deep enough black look to it for me. Still looks too "chromey"

yeah thats why I went the route I did, I used a mix of ultra gloss black automotive enamel and ultra gloss clear coat mix and sprayed my chrome then buffed the living s@$% out of it to give it a semi translucent deep piano black finnish.
