    The only way to get it from the dealer would be to get it included in the deal for the car. Make it a "deal maker".

    hopefully this helps shed some light on what these parts actually look like - because if we had to rely on the images GM has for them, we wouldn't be getting anywhere at all.

    first pic is of the glorious packaging, second two are of the upper grill and surround(yes the package comes with both upper and lower grille sections, i just did not unpack the bottom portion), then the last 2 pictures are of the rear fascia molding.

    i absolutely love the way these pieces look and feel; they'll be installed after my first oil change in a week or so.

    if there are any questions or other angles you want to see, please let me know and i'll do my best to illustrate.
    Thanks for posting the pics! This is my first time that I am seeing this type of grille. I just learned about these accessory grilles (with special thanks to ATSCHICK)! And it turned out that my ATS came with one of these optional grilles:



    Left is my 2.0L Turbo performance with bright chrome accessory grille, and right is a 3.6L Premium with standard midnight chrome accented grille. It think yours is black chrome grille. MSRP of your grille is $435 (part# 22943164), and mine is $455 (part# 22943165), and they both require 1.3h installation time.

    These both look good. So these are GM/Cadillac options correct? As mentioned earlier, they can be negotiated into a deal price if a GM option.

    ^
    Yes, they are! You can directly order them from the dealers, or when you are shopping the car, ask the dealer to add them to the deal. In my case, I had no idea my brand new ATS comes with optional grille! I used to think it is standard stock grille, and the dealer never talked about it when we were negotiating on the price.

    Here are pics of the black chrome grille and bezel on a Pacific Silver Metalic...





    My car took nearly 4 hours to do both pieces. How long was actual labor, remains to be seen (you know how dealers operate...). Labor was $300 for the install(s).

    that looks great! wish they made the other 2 pieces by the fogs in the same black chrome to match for the front end.

    Yeah a co-worker pointed out the fog light air splitters. I guess the easy solution is to vinyl wrap them with the expensive solution being to buy D3's front bumper kit. Then there's the "chrome" look of the LED housing... always something.

    here's 3 quick pics after the grille was installed. i absolutely love it! i also took the cheap route and bought some "smoked" 2% window film from wal-mart and threw that on the front reflectors myself, then just removed the rear reflectors for paint. overall, loving the look thus far.

    Looks good! I was thinking of painting my rear reflectors too.. I may go black mesh grilles in the front. http://www.ebay.com/itm/CADILLAC-ATS...5b5bc8&vxp=mtr
    It would give it a V look.

    That looks fantastic. Ridiculous price though...

    Yeah i just checked and that's the same price that I can sell it for (basically... just a couple dollars different)

    ----------

    also looks great in the bright finish and the fine mesh too!
    (oh and they make led lights for the base/standard and luxury trims that don't come with the lower 'fog' lights)

    no, they're OEM accessory parts.
