My standard White Diamond Deville has the chrome grille with the cadi emblem hood ornament. I noticed other standard Deville’s on the lot that had the gray grille with the cadi emblem in the grille. Any answers, I am thinking that Deville’s with the premium paint got the hood-mounted emblem.

Standard Deville and DHS have a hood ornament. DTS has a grill ornament. DTS w/Night-Vision has a hole in the grill for the sensor and a "special" flush-mount badge on the hood right about where the standard car has the hood ornament. As I recall, the standard Deville and DHS have the chrome grill while the DTS has the gray grill.

I thought the DHS had the emblem in the grille too?

IMO the nightvision thing is really ugly, the grille looks weird, and I hate the flush mount things..... when I am driving, I just like to see the hood ornament there, it adds more to the hood....

Well that is not the case. I went to my dealer and I saw standard Deville's with the chrome grille and hood ornament and other standard Deville’s with the grey grille and the crest in the grille?? The only conclusion I could draw was the Deville’s with standard paint had the grey grill and Deville’s with optional paint had the chrome grills.

Anyone else have any ideas?

After paying more attention to them because my dad has his new DTS, only the Base Deville has the hood ornament, as far as I can tell the DHS and DTS do not have hood ornaments. I kinda like the look of a hood ornament, it is more distinctive and it helps when parallel parking.

I just purchased a 2001 Deville w/landau roof, white pearl color, chrome wheels and gold accented ornaments. I love the hood ornament standing up on the hood. I think it really accents the front of the car.

I always wondered about the hood vs. grille emblem myself. I have a 2003 Deville with the emblem on the grille, my friend has an '03 Deville with the same location(grille). I also know another person with a 2001 Deville..his is on the hood. I prefer the grille emblem over the hood ornament just because there's usually a punk kid out there waiting to rip it off. I always thought the location was determined by the year....earlier Devilles have the hood ornament from my experience.
Just a thought.

I have always loved the stand up hood crests since they came out in the 70's, though they are a target and a punk magnet. I've only lost one.

as much as I would like to have a stand up ornament, where i live, im sure it would have been swiped by now. Plus the grille ornament is stealthy..

Get a Gold Edition DTS and you will have both of the ornaments in gold and a body color grille, in 2002 anyways.
