    New 2005 CTS-V owner

    Picked up my very own CTS-V this week! Its a 2005 with just under 39,000 miles! Looks like only mod thus far has been a Magnaflow dual exhaust upgrade.












    Things that will need to be addressed very soon:
    Front emblem (I want something custom any ideas?)
    wheel center cap emblems 2 are missing (would also like something custom any ideas?)
    new tires 275/40/18's in the rear and 245/40/18's in the front. (does anyone go with 275's in the front?)
    Navigation CD-Rom (which version should i get?)
    Want to get red FRC's

    Welcome and congrats! Why does it look like every emblem has been peeled off, but the adhesive is still there? 8th day creations makes emblem overlays, but I'm assuming you will need an emblem to overlay upon...if you get what I mean.

    I will take a look for them. A new shorter shifter would be great too. What do they run?

    Yup the GM performance wheels look pretty sweet on these! I just dont get why they made the wheel the same exact size. Besides the the looks of the 2 wheels are there any differences?

    Ya this car came from KC, Missouri so i guess some of the badges must had been stolen off of the car. I am going to get the set of 3 V badges for the sides and trunk, along with a LS6 V8 rear badge for where the CTS is. Would love to do the 8th day creations replacement but i just wish it were a bit more durable rather than just an overlay. May just go with a blacked out crest and shield instead. We will see...
