    The hood & headlights won't be a problem. The halogen & HID headlights have the same shape & mounting locations. The only difference is halogen vs. HID.

    The hood is also more of a personal touch. It's not 100% needed but does complete the look.

    So other than that the parts listed is all I need???

    Do your instructions for the '08 match that for the 2011 CTS coupe for the front end only?

    Was dealer your best bet on other parts listed?

    Yes....the front ends of the coupe & sedan are the same so the instructions are the same for both.

    For me the dealer was the best place as I got 50% off all My parts.

    How are you getting discounts from the dealer? I need to buy a passenger HID headlight and no matter how much I plead or beg, they still want to charge me 900+ for it.

    Re: CTS-V bumpers on a 08 CTS How-to

    Hey, thanks for your help. I need part number 22755332. My VIN will not help in this situation because it will show my car to have base halogen headlights. I recently made an upgrade to the OEM HID headlights but the used passenger one I bought from a local individual is junk. Its keeps getting moisture inside the light. Something I couldn't have noticed until it rained a month later. I'm already out $360 for that light. Never again will I buy used parts. Luckily, the driver side is brand new and I don't have any issues with that one.

    Re: CTS-V bumpers on a 08 CTS How-to

    $835.80 is the best price I can offer on that lamp... for some reason there's just not that much markup in there between cost and list

    let me know if there's anything else that I can help you with

    The non V brake ducts will not fit the V bumper however they are not needed if u don't mind the brakes getting cool air. The splash shields are not needed either but they secure the bottom of the bumper & keeps out the junk on the road. My suggestion is to replace these parts.....if ur going to spend the money on the conversion, do it right.

    the lower splash shield helps some with cooling ... it helps keep air crossing the radiator instead of going under it and under the car ... also at higher speeds there is probably some aerodynamic function and you'd probably rather not have any chance adding lift to the car at those speeds

    Re: CTS-V bumpers on a 08 CTS How-to

    Does anyone on here have any tips on paint all the chrome on the car?
    I got the V grill kit but every body-shop I've taken it to refuses to paint it.. I've seen it done so i refuse to believe that it is not doable.

    It's not a good idea to paint over chrome. The paint won't adhere well. That's why they don't want to do it.

    I have a 2012 coupe. Will the older sedan/coupe V bumper still fit? Are there any parts I can re-used on my coupe?
