    Thunder gray is the best color. Period.

    Nice looking car!

    You might want to consider getting clear fog lights and sidemarker lenses to eliminate the orange. It would look really clean, then.

    The best way to get reflection photos is if the subject of the reflection is lit. Best is get it so the subject is facing a setting sun, and have the side of the car in the shadow. The setting sun does two things, provide the best light for the subject, and will be angled right on it, not from above.

    That looks awesome with the black wheels, i love the TG 07. i looked for awhile for a thunder grey 07, found 2 had the light interior which i couldn't deal with, the last one was exactly what i wanted, my dealer had a deal going and the caddy dealer sold it the next morning out from under us.
    frustraited i looked at the 06 stealth grey, and i think i like it just as much.

    At this angle you will remove all the "orange peel" and make you image more of a mirror.


    I took this one to show you what a difference light does. The car is in the garage and anything outside with sunlight reflects, where as the garage was dark and nothing reflected.
    Also note you need to get your car from 4x4 status to slammed status. Just an observation.

    Lowered and slammed are not the same thing. Your car is lowered. You can still drive it, in other words. This is a slammed V.
