I have a 03 ESV with some mods, Wheels,grill ,exhaust. I was thinking about installing a PLATINUM emblem on the back even when its not a true PLATINUM. I plan on adding allot more stuff in the furture screens, stero etc.
What do you think. I like the look of the emblem

since you changed all the stuff go ahead and add the emblem... I true escalade consumer, would know right away, by the leater on the inside of the door, and by the lack of cooled seats... since you changed the outside, your aiight in that department.

When questioned by a Escalade lover, on if your rides a platinum you could end up looking like a moron... but what ever gets you off is cool

Bad call on the DUB badges. Stick with your platinum idea. I'm sure you can order some through your local dealer and pay about the same cost as a set of DUB badges.
your ride is nicely tricked out... I am j/w why don't you like the DUB emblems... Too much of a "urban/street" look? ? ?

One more vote for the DUB badge ... Wouldn't think of putting platinum on it ... Dont we burn people for putting Escalade parts and badges on a Tahoe/Yukon. Wouldnt this be like the same thing.

P.S. If you like it do it, if you dont like it dont do it.

ive seen a few escalades like that ..... but whats weird is i see even more mercedes and bmws with it ... reason being i think Platinum Motorsports in Los Angeles brands their car with that ... personally i was thinking about doing it too .. its a good idea and its nothing like putting escalade badges on a tahoe or yukon ... and some people on here are probably gonna be like its ghetto or cheap ... but the thing is when your already paying 55 G's + for a car theres not much that can make it ghetto or look cheap ... if i was you id do it

I looked at a 06 Platium emblem on sunday at the 06 seattle car show and the emblem was alot smaller than the the 05's. I didnt like it cause it did not match, looked cheap.

theres plenty things to make it look cheap. i've seen alot of cheap looking escalades. putting Platinum badges on a non-Platinum Escalade is like me putting Z71 stickers on my non-Z71 Silverado.

Isnt dub a magazine, why would you put a magazine on your truck?? isnt that like putting a motor trend sticker on your truck?

HAHA... True you are correct... If you keep up with the "urban life" or tricked out rides. You will see DUB is not only a magazine but it's a brand... Its own line of wheels in conjunction with american racing (TIS Rims)... All kinds of other stuff too... So its not just a brand but rather a lifestyle...
