Has anyone seen or installed the grille to make an STS look like a V-series? I like the look but not sure I want to start taking my one week old STS apart to install it. I am curious if the quality is up to Cadillac standards. does it bolt up easily and fit nicely?
I Had A B&g Chrome Wire Mesh Grill Installed On My Redline 05 Sts, And It Looks Great And Fits Perfectly And Is High Quality, Looks Like It Came From The Factory. Even My Wife, Who Wanted To Stay With The Grill That Came On The Car Was Against It At First Until She Saw The Wire Mesh Grill And Said It Really Looked Better Than The Factory Grill.
The Sts-v Is A Little Faster, But Not By Much, Than The 320 Hp Northstar, So I'm Happy With My Sts.
I feel like an idiot, I gave you the wrong name of the company that produces the STS wire mesh grill.
Go to the web site www.E&Gclassics.com. and you will get the necessary information and photos of the chrome wire mesh grill.
I had my grill installed by a local detail shop and I waited while the grill was installed. It took about one and a half hours. I guess I could have installed it myself but as a rule anything I try to repair/install, I screw up. But also the detail shop sold me and installed the grill for the same price that E&G charged for the grill alone (no taxes, no freight) so I got a good deal from the detail shop.
Good luck and I know you will be satisfied with it.
The E & G grill is available on ebay for $395. I just got my 1SG on Friday but have adaptive cruise control so I am waiting for E & G to bring out a grill that works with this cruise control. Ordered my STS on Nov 26 and only took delivery on March 11. Retail on the grill is $495. I don't know anything about the person selling on ebay. Maybe someone else can comment.
Just wanted to let you know we only sell E & G grilles on our site. Just click on Grilles R Us add in this forum and go to the STS site. Should have a picture and give you an idea what you would be looking at. Give us a call or email me if you have any questions. Bill
Is there a web site that I can view the install instructions? I would like to know what I might be getting into in changing the grille.
I ordered the one from ebay E&G, I installed it my self. It was a little more work than i had planned but it came out nice in the end. The instructions came with the grill. You will have to reuse your factory emblem so be careful when removing it from the factory grill. You can see pictures of my work on the sts images link on this site. :coolgleam
