Can someone please tell me how to get this ugly plastic thing off the front of my V?

Probably the best way would be to remove the front bumper (not as hard as it sounds) and cut off the rivets from behind. You'll then need to either put plugs in the holes, or have them filled and the bumper re-sprayed.

Welcome to the forum, by the way! Be sure to read the FAQ (www.cadillacfaq.com) for lots of answers to questions we all had.

it got 4 rivits holding it on.take off the plate and drill off the rivit heads. 10 min and its done.

then i took mine off anyway and brought it to a body shop to have the holes filled properly. i hate those plugs. they look cheap

Has anyone had some color-matched vinyl cut in circles to place over the holes?

The above link is to the bumperplugs website. I was going to go that route but decided, since there are four holes, it might not look that great. I actually have an appointment to get my front bumper holes plugged and the whole thing repainted on Tuesday.
