    Nope- just cosmetic. If I were making a track attack V I'd have gone with slotted, especially since drilled rotors have a tendency to crack under extreme use.

    So, it's not worth the money? Also, my V came with the corsa exhaust. I see GM has their own exhaust they offer too. Is corsa the better choice? The carbon radiator shroud, is that any good? Mine came with the strut and engine cover, I wonder if the radiator shroud would be "too much" carbon.

    This is my engine bay.

    I kid a lot of guys about the cosmetic mods. Ask Luvmy04v, and Faylix. I teased them, they took it, and fired back. Fun for all.

    No soup for you.

    Chris/Trukk. I am going to get spinners on my V, 24"s. Have it raised and lifted, just to piss you off. And Neons. Bright green.

    for you, NO WAY

    I would try to post that pic on one or two more threads though. You've only posted it to 3 so far.

    Re: Post pics of your rims, what make they are, how much you paid, and where you got

    This thread is turning so ridiculous. Chris "trukk" likes to bust balls... so what, thats his thing. The rims that I put on my car are light weight and I think very classy. I wanted something close to the stock wheel in design because I think that the stock wheels on the V are some of the best around. Also I went with the 20's because they are just big enough to fill the well and not look like you are riding on little black strips. Also again they are light weight 20's and if you dont believe me ask Nikon when we raced. The 285's in the back also help alot in hooking up. . So again to each his own. Hopfully you are not buying parts for the V for another persons approval. Get what you like after all you are the one buying it.


    For the question about the tail lights....
    I had the tail lights, side markers, fogs & third brake light panted by a shop in South Florida. They look really good but I should have gone lighter because they are too dark sometimes for safety reasons.

    CSP3000, if you do not have a 700 whp record-breaking car, you are no one, to Chris. Do you have a procharger, fully built and ported motor, and a respectable 1/4 mile time to be ALLOWED to have smoked lights? NO.
