    Well, your pics worked if you want people to click on each link. There is a better way to do it via photobucket. I think it's the image URL that you should copy instead.

    So, you want opinions? Honest opinions?

    If you haven't seen it yet, you should check out the 'blacked out' thread. May give you some additional ideas.

    Re: 05 V appearance mods. questions? suggestions?

    I think it looks good. What wheels are those? Haven't seen them on a CTS-V before. Did you do the muffler delete? I prefer a little bigger exhaust tip on the end (4" or so), to fill up the huge openings in the bumper.

    Also, check out this thread http://www.cadillacforums.com/forums...il-lights.html for some more ideas on painting the headlights and taillights. I like how he painted black around the edges, and I think that would look great on your headlights so the grey doesn't stand out as much.

    Maybe tint the reverse lights, too.

    Ok that link works better... I have seen the blacked out thread and I love the black on black but not sure how my rims would look as black. Btw they are american racing 20"s had them drilled to fit...

    and I agree on the tint for the reverse lights.

    ----------

    My mods so far are 20" american racing rims, calipers painted and upgraded pads, 18% tint, ccfl 700k halo headlights with 4500k low beams, embroidered head rests, muffler delete with aftermarket 3.5" tips, and belltronic radar mounted under the mirror ( custom made mount)

    Near future mods: possibly powdercoat rims, new pioneer appradio 3 head unit, tint reverse lights, maybe lower it some,
    viper 2 way remote alarm w/ remote start, paint match the outer part of the headlights like v-twin said

    If you insert the links using IMG tags instead of URL tags, they'll actually show up in the thread. That way we don't have to click 10 different links to see your pictures. I fixed one for you; you can fix the rest.

    Not feeling those wheels even a little bit. On the upside, you have nice paint, clear headlights, and evidently the local law lets you get away with a tinted plate cover. Looks like you could use WAY more rear tire...

    Hard thing with this stupid ass 6-lug pattern, and about three or four paint colors - not a lot of room for appearance mods.
