Has anyone tried to switch there regular Cadillac Escalade grille for the Platinum grille? I have a 2015i Premium Escalade and I am wondering if it would be fairly easy converting the grille to a platinum grille.. And would it need to be professionally installed or is it pretty easy that I could install myself. Also I'm wondering if anyone has the $100 exhaust tip accessory for the escalade? If so can you post pictures from different angles. Thank you.

To buy the P, you need the P grille, P wheels to look the external part. The hood trim is also different from the regular.

I am not looking to convert my Premium into a Platinum. I would just like to switch out the Grille because I like how the Platinum grille looks even if it's just a suttle difference..

Knowing GM, it's probably a direct swap! You should head down to the dealership and inspect a Platinum and non-Platinum model.

I'm doing the wheels and grille changover as well but I can't see how the hood chrome piece is different. Can someone explain??

Accomplished with no issues, lined up perfectly and did not have to change hood trim. We did have to remove bumper to fit the grill.

also, the bottom bumper grill on the non platinums matches the platinum grill perfectly as opposed to the "thinner" trim thats on the platinum editions.

How's about the front camera.. I see there mounted differently on the platinum..
Anyone know the answer to this question? I really want to swap out the standard grille on my '16 ESV Luxury model for the Platinum grille, but I am worried that the camera will not function correctly due to being mounted in a bit of a different spot (about 6 inches higher). Does anyone know if this will be an issue?

Thanks,
Paul

Dealership told me that it will not fit if we buy the 2015i or newer grill for the old emblem style. Anyone on this forum done this and have any part numbers?? I would love to do this also...... The Lexani grills are nice but more than I would like to spend.
