    Re: Chrome Grill Upper & Lower

    I ordered the three piece set about ten days ago and never received it. I e-mailed the company, showtrix, and after two days they responded with"Check your local post office". I did and they did not have it. I e-mailed the company again and haven't heard from them since. It might be the season but they are not real good on customer relations. I will try to find the same product with another company. I'm real glad they didn't take my credit card.

    I mailed a money order to Showtrix on Dec 3 and received grill kit Dec 15. They sent me a E-Mail that it was shipped Dec 12. Tx to Ohio.

    Re: Chrome Grill Upper & Lower

    Well, I took the plunge and ordered the same 4 piece grille kit as Delores. Got it on e-bay from Billet-anything. I was checking out the Cadillac crest for removal and I noticed what looks like 2 tabs on each side of the crest near the top. It looks like they snap into the grey surround. Did anyone else notice these? It was my understanding that it was just attached with 3M tape. Did they make a change for 2012? Help!!!!!!

    No, i got my upper grill back when the dealer changed mine out. My crest had two snaps to assist in holding it in place along with the 3M.

    Thanks, Captain. I saw some pictures of the grille without the crest, and I see what you're talking about.

    I purchased one of these last week and there are three slots on the chrome center piece for tabs on the crest. Can anyone tell me how difficult it is to remove this crest? I see no easy way to get access to it from behind. I get the fishing line idea, but once it is loose how do I free it from the tabs?

    Re: Chrome Grill Upper & Lower

    I'll answer my own question in case someone tries to tackle this job later. Removing the crest is not that difficult, the tabs, of which their are three sets on the 2012, just stick through the base piece on the car, they do not hook or fasten to the car. So if you just use the heat and fishing line solution to remove the crest it will come right off. Now I had to buy some double sides 3M tape to re-apply it on the chrome kit because I didn't feel enough of the tape stayed on the crest and I was afraid it might fall off in time.

    Anyway, the kit from Billet Anything really dresses up the front end of the SRX in my opinion. My only concern is how long it will last, will it start flaking off in a year or two....if it does I will post in this thread, but right now it looks terrific!

    I just replace the grill in our 2011 with a 2014 grill. It gives us a whole new look and who would ever know?
