Cadillac Emblem Headrests

is it possible to replace the cts-v headrests with the ones like that are in the escalade? the ones in the escalade have the cadillac logo embroidered in them and look really nice. would the ones from the escalade fit in the cts-v, like as a switch-a-roo?

Thumbs down

Allright, so I tried to take the headrests out on the Escalade & the V - maybe I'm retarted but I couldn't get either car's headrest off...
I'll try again, but I will tell you this - The posts look like they are the same and may fit into the V seat, but the front seat headrest of the Sclade is WAY BIGGER than the V's it would probably look silly. ANd the rear seat rest is smaller than the V's front seat - so.....
I'd say keep looking for an aftermarket part - Also the Escalade interior only comes in grey and tan - I have tan - and the grey is rare...
I'll let you know if I figure something out.

thanks for trying bert, i just think its weird that cadillac didnt do the embroydered headrests for the cts's. theres a guy on the corvette forum who does custom embroydering partition things, maybe he could do headrests too. ill keep you posted.

BONUS: How about embroidered logos on the front with TV's in the back of the headrests?!

I would be seriously suprised if the stock head unit had outputs to drive extra monitors. Does anyone have the factory service manuals handy? The wiring diagrams in the manuals would provide more insight into running extra screens off the factory HU.

FOUND: cts embroydered headrests!!

i have a friend with a regular cts and he told me that the headrests come with the cadillac logo embroydered in them! im really surprised cadillac didnt do that for the cts-v. but i guess that means you can probably order them from gm parts direct and replace them.

I just gave a Chevrolet dealer I get good deals on parts through and their parts guy was unable to find any mention of the standard CTS headrest covers having embroadering on them.

If I can get a VIN number for a standard CTS that has the embroadery on the headrest, I can probably get a good price on the covers from him. I'm going to do some more research and I'll post when I have results.

Ok, looks like Lund Cadillac can have the embroadering done but it is in fact not a feature of the CTS or a GM accessory that is available through the dealer.

Give Denny a call at Lund Cadillac if you are interested in sending your head rests off to have this done. I think it would be really cool to have a set made with the V logo on them instead of the Cadillac emblem.

If you want to order a new set of head rest covers so you're not without covers (or your leased and will need to return it to stock), call Bob at Fichtner Chevrolet.
