It took an extra week and a half for the custom work, but it was well worth it!!!

The rims are the 24 pound factory rims with the premium package. And they were powder coated. No lowering was done. They dealership ordered the mesh grill from cadillac, then painted it.

How much was everything? I have a black Diamond, but would like to do something with the mesh grill, but don't know if its possible since i have the driver's awareness package, not sure if it would interfere with the radar up in the crest.

Oh nice ATS! Do you have some better pictures so we can see the whole car?

Actually the grille is from E&G, but the car looks great!

Need advise.


I have the black diamond (metallic) arriving soon. Will a blacked out grill and the 19" black rims look ok, or should is only be done with black raven? Keep the wheel and trim colour comes as is with 19"s instead.

I think it all looks terrific. Great looking package.

Ben003,

That's a tough one, ill look around for a metallic black with a black grill to try and shoot you an example. I think a flat black grill might be more of a contrast if anything.
I would stick with the stock colors on that one. B/c the std black doesn't have any flakes in it from a distance the flat parts just blend in.
I could go either way with it.

The E&G black grille pictures don't show a black surround. What did you do to get it? Paint, wrap...?

We need to meet up sometime soon as I am here in Tampa as well. I saw your car I think at the Dimmit booth at Festivals of Speed yesterday. I have had my ATS just over a week so far and plan to do some mods soon.
