Hi everybody,

I definately want to change the front grill and am considering several options.

- Getting the Lund Chrome Grill (USD $1895.00)

I spoke to them earlier today and they told me that it is actually the same stock grill that they chrome. So I guess I could have it done myself on my own grill. Plus, 1985 USD is a lot and it certainly would be a pain to ship to Europe (VAT, delay...).. I still think 1985 USD is a lot for the originall plastic grill chromed and I am worried it might not look as nice a a real chrome grill...

- Choming my own XLR Grill

This would probably be cheaper and easier than getting the Lund. Only, it is difficult to find place to do that in France (legislation on chrome using sulfure is very strict) and I am not sure whether the result would be satisfying...

- Using chrome paint on my own XLR Grill

Have you guys seen any of those total chrome look cars in magazines? So far, I have seen a M3 (Canadian owner) and an SL (SEMA Show). They look good on paper, but I have no idea how chrome paint look in real life... This might the most viabl option since if I don't like, I can always paint the grill back to silver....

- Paint my XLR grill in black to match the car

Of course, I would let the Cadillac logo stand out, but the horizontal bars would match the body color (i.e. German BMW tuning)...

- Go for the XLR-V mesh grill

I have seen several of those and I think i recall my dealer telling me that they would have those ready for install...

Anyway guys, let me know what you think....

Hi 1 XLR,

I really like the mesh grille like the XLR V´s is. 5 K for the mesh, this guy must be cruzy. Wait maybe within two months there will be one available from Grillesrus.com and I think the price should be about $ 400. They charge right now for the 05 STS mesh $ 395 - and that`s fair prices.

I don`t like the chromed out grille.

Sucker born every minute that has $5000 in his pocket and it's just burning a hole in it, so he buys a mesh gril, or is that girl, Oh, I know, it's grille. I can wait for my V with the free grille. Well, almost free.

I agree that $5000 seems a 'little' extravagant.... I'm sure you could have one custom made for less.

Anyway, 1 XLR, I would love to see the pics of your XLR with the painted gril... I'm seriously considering that since I don't really trust chromed plastic...
