Ok my first purchase is going to be a new grill. I am going to follow that up with some tint in September and a new set of rims inthe spring. I am thinking of the MODA MD2's. Definately going to 18 inchers.

I have seen quite a few ads and places that sell the grills but theres so many available. I see on EBAY There are a few places that sell them. Has anyone bought theirs from EBAY. If so can you recommend a good seller to purchase. Can I get upgraded grills from dealers ?


Can anyone give me any advice on the best place to get a grill and maybe a picture of your grill to see how it looks. My car is light platinum

i know those rims, VERY GOODLOOKING!


u got quite a few options as far as grilles...

sports grille (very nice & sorta resembles the 08 style)
cts-v wire grille
cts-v grille & have it powdercoated
strut grille
t-rex grille
stock grille painted to match body color
or the e&g, like i have :D



but if u do want a mesh grille, you should get one thats stainless steel one... and yes many people buy off them off ebay.

i bought a CTS-V grill off of ebay from jenningsparts. they are a chevrolet/cadillac dealership in illinois. it was an OEM cadillac grill, and not an aftermarket one. i paid $315 + $15 for shipping. very fast shipping & very professional.

here is one they are listing right now http://cgi.ebay.com/ebaymotors/Cadillac-CTS-Type-V-CTS-V-Stainless-Wire-Grille-Grill_W0QQitemZ200141880472QQihZ010QQcategoryZ33645QQssPageNameZWDVWQQrdZ1QQcmdZViewItem
I bought mine from them too. Their prices went up though! I got it about 6 months ago for $265. It's a genuine GM part. Fits perfect. Here's a pic. (not on a platinum though)

I have been in contact with two dealers both are out of stock. Seems their kind of hard to get. Luke at Lindsay says they are out of stock until end of Month. Jennings in Chicago says GM is out and has no idea when they will arrive and dont \seem all that interested in finding out when they wil have them


The sport grille is very nice.

I can't find a sport grille period. Does anyone know where to find one and if it will even fit with an 04 non-V bumper?

gaugeguru, contact Luke at Lindsay Cadillac (forum vendor here) -- they have great prices & those who buy from them have been more than satisfied.

If Lindsay can't get one I don't know where you can get it. But it will fit...the sport grill is standard OEM, and interchangeable with the base grill or the V grill.

Go with the sport grille, it will make your car look newer. All of our cars will start looking old soon when the new CTS comes out in a few weeks.

Normally I'm only into black but Dubbed Stealth car is probably the nicest I've seen.

Do you guys think there's much of a difference between the V-Bumper and the regular bumper? I can see the diff, but it doesn't look significant to me as say the V-Grill vs. egg crate vs sport.
