    Talking Got my new Baby tonight

    Finally got the new-to-me '04 CTS-V tonight. Black on Black. Going to spend the weekend cleaning her up, then starting the list of everything that I need to do to bring it up to snuff, then a few goodies. Already it has a high rise hood, x-pipe, K&N CAI, and tint. Extremely excited, haven't had a fun car for a few years now, and this is my first rear-wheel car with any power. Def different feel from a front wheel drive car.

    You're excused.

    First upgrade is to my membership here - DONE

    No shifter as of yet though it'll likely be one of the first upgrades - feels like I'm trying to get into my glove box going into 5th...Seems like UUC is the most popular option out there.

    Best thing yet is that it passed the wifey test. Finally got her to give in with a "whatever you need to feed your ego" type comment when I started shopping, but last night I took her out last night for a spin. Her words - "I like it, makes me feel younger..." - fountain of youth FTW!

    I let my wife drive My car... Words like too loud, too much bass, too hard to shift all came out of her mouth. Which is good for me because now she never wants to drive it

    I hope your list isn't as long as mine was/is. I find something new every week.

    Welcome and do yourself a favor and look up the thread on PISNUOFF's custom short shifter. It's awesome!
