    Re: Just got my CTS-V bumper package...

    Ok here are the installed pics

    Sorry for the crappy quality but the're from my phone


    IMG_0356.jpg


    IMG_0359.jpg


    A couple of issues...


    I need to purchase the lower lip spoiler that comes stock on the V bumper because my kit didn't come with one...

    Also, I would like to get the Cadillac Crest & wreath logo on the upper grille. I thought I could just re-use the one from my stock bumper since I looked at some diagrams and the emblem from the CTS and CTS-V grilles are the same part number, but the body shop says I can't because the mesh of the CTS-V grille won't allow the glue to stick properly?? If that makes sense. I really want the emblem on the grille though. If I buy something like this will it work?

    wow, looks great! yes, I agree with adding the cadillac emblem on the front grill. The E&G mounting plate should work, however it might be a little loose due to the size of the holes on the grill. What's next? Keep up the nice work!

    Re: Just got my CTS-V bumper package...

    250 thanks!

    Yeah I ust got off the phone with Big Daddy Caddy and he recommended I just get the OEM front emblem that is held on with 2 sided 3M adhesive. Hopefully it will hold on te grill, he seems pretty confident that it will hold no problem.

    For the exhaust tips, it's a bit more complicated than I thought... The stock muffler and tips sit pretty high so the tips are very close to the bumper. It looks like I'm just going to have to buy tips and have an exhaust shop fab up and weld pipes to redirect so they go down and away from the bumper...

    Next I'll probably wait till the snow melts to get a nice set of wheels. Had my eye on some Vossens

    Uberwayne53... Can you tell me where you found the blacked out pic of ctsv? Do you know anything about the car in the picture? I'm trying to find out what wheels those are and size of wheels and tires. Also, is that a
    blacked out v or a Cts converted. I have a Cts 4 and wonder if I can put on all the v effects. Grill, hood, ground effects. That's the baddest Cadillac I've ever seen!

    Thanks sfv!! Couldn't have done it without your help!

    And my CTS-V hood is on the way Can't wait to have pics with the hood on and front grille completed.

    2008CTS4, if you look in the V Section of this website I think you'll find more pics of the black car.
