    Obviously someone doing this mod would not care about people who cant tell the difference between a cts and a sts. It is more noticeable if you use the stock 08-09 grill, but the 08-09 E&G still looks alot better than the 05-07 E&G.

    you are out of your mind if you think the 2005-2007 front looks the same, or better. The 2008+ front bumper follows the new 2008 CTS front bumper style, ESPICALLY the lower portion. Putting the E&G grill on the older style will make your cadillac look like just that, the old style.

    The newer designed lower grill and much larger upper grill are FAR worth the price in upgrading, to me atleast. I realize this isnt going to appeal to the majority of STS owners, but I already have a ton of mods into my car to make it the nicest Cadillac around.

    Just so we're all on the same page... The 2 differences I'm seeing is the lower grill going from a 'frowny' look /---\ to a 'happy' look \---/ that makes the outer edge lines run parallel to the main upper grill lines. And the upper grill has a lower bottom edge that that makes it fully sit on the horizontal line of the rest of the bumper's top line (therefore a bigger upper grill).

    Now, can someone post similar rear end shots of the 05/06/07 so I can figure out what years I see around town.

    How much is the '08 grill? Doubt I would change to that. Was thinking about going to the d3 grill which looks bad ass when I thought I recalled the price at $650, too bad I forgot there was a 1 in front of that price. Wish there stuff wasn't soooooo overpriced, come-on now, $600 for a rear window wing! Got the E&G kit on my car!

    OH TO MAKE MATTERS EVEN BETTER, the ****ing clips I needed less than 12 hours ago came in today, AFTER the dealership told me they would take 3 weeks to come in. Now the entire front bumper has to come off again to properly put the clips on.

    The 08 up looks good it just doesn't suit my purposes as well.

    Less chrome = lower LIDAR profile and is easier to cover with 2 jammer heads.

    From your pics it looks like you didn't have to raise your car to remove the front bumper. Was it hard to remove without raising the car? I also want to add some HID's in there but from what I've read around the forums the easiest, foolproof way is to remove the bumper.

    And i think the car looks sweet. If I could've afforded both the bumper and the grill I would've gotten them instead of D3's grill.
