So after doing some soul searching, I decided I wanted to go with a black mesh '15 grill with a chrome surround to replace the busted grill on my black raven '14. I found this one on eBay, and the price is right, but the seller hasn't replied to my question. Has anyone bought this same grill? If so does it come with a emblem mount? I'm assuming I need the 9" emblem, but once again, not sure....

That's the seller I was talking about in the previous page. The grill comes with mount only

I was thinking of going with this.
It seems to have all the required items for the install.

I don't understand why they include a new rear emblem but not the required trim piece that also needs to be changed. I'll probably go this direction at some point.
I was confused myself as well. The rear trim piece is like $100 anywhere. I’ll be going this route during the first week of May

Cadillac CTS 2016 2017 2018 E&G GRILLE EMBLEM MOUNTING PLATE KIT https://rover.ebay.com/rover/0/0/0?mpre=https://www.ebay.ca/ulk/itm/182477681659


They also have kits that come with the actual emblem too.
Pretty excited to see the new transformation on my car, also picked up a black chrome grill shroud and a new taller OEM spoiler. Cars gonna look killer this summer! Now if i could only find lowering springs, cold air intake and an exhaust i would be set. It is unbelievable how little aftermarket support is available for these beautiful cars.

Got the new spoiler and black chrome grill surround in today. Here are some pics of new spoiler and a comparison of stock to black chrome surround. Just waiting on new grill and emblem hardware now! Black chrome looks much darker in person and i think it is going to look great on phantom grey.

i believe the black one is out of stock everywhere right now. i bought the chrome one sanded every inch by hand and painted it.
So I just bought the chrome one and will paint black as well. Question though, does the whole piece have to be painted it just the mesh area? I'm assuming my OEM grill surround should cover the chrome areas of the grill! I'm not lazy about the painting the whole thing, just don't want to get paint in the screw holes if not needed.

Any pics of yours? Do you feel like it will hold up with the paint job?

you only need to paint the mesh and a small lip around the mesh but its just time consuming i sanded the face then inside each hole. there are a few methods to remove the chrome i tried a few but none of them worked for me you might have better luck. iv had it for i think about a month now and there are a few tiny chips but you can't see them unless your close to the grille. painting the grille surround is another story i already a big chip in the paint. i live in michigan so when its warmer I'm gonna sand all the chips and repaint. ill post some pictures in about an hour when I'm at my work computer
