Hello ladies and gents,
At 45, just became single again and as a result have new found wealth!! So I bought a beautiful 2009 black Escalade from Ok. Low miles well maintained in all respects. Now, I am new to this site and have not perused it fully yet, but I am looking for some advice on a few minor changes that I would like to accomplish.
First, I would like to change the fog light bulbs to something more in line with the HID headlights. The DRL's too. The use of the halogens just does'nt look right with the HID's. My first thought was replacement bulbs, but I don't want a tinted halogen. I have seen replacement LED bulbs and ones with ballasts kits etc. I have also seen entire replacemenbt fog light assembly's with small LED accent strips under the turn signal.
I guess I'm looking for a good site to go to where I can ask these questions and compare my options, because there appears to be a few.

Next, what are my options for upgrading my Nav. The disc came with the truck when it was new, but is clearly out of date. I hear that updated discs from the dealer are over $400.

Again, I have not checked this whole site yet, so I apologize if my questions were already covered, but any help would be appreciated. This is my first caddy, so I am still learning the lingo and figuring this thing out. Thank God for the owners manual!!

The fog lights fit h10 hid kits. And I just replaced the drl's with 5202's that are specific to Cadillac on vleds website. They are perfectly white. The top parking light is a 194 bulb which is abundant and can be found anywhere.
