    If you put them on your car, center them lower and towards the window, in the tradition of the factory emblems. Before the complainers start, I've noticed there is a recent Volvo model with emblems on the C-pillar and the 2014 Impala is shown with them, too. I'm curious to see what they would look like without the "cloth top" option (something I've never liked) since the standard roof with the chrome window trim has a C-pillar likely too thin to apply these on a CTS Coupe.
    Nice find! Thank You. I don't know if I like this new style....the fact the color part of the logo isn't done in an inlay looks a bit "cheap" in the pictures. I guess I'll have to get to the dealer and look at an XTS and see them in person. Plus to get a size, since he doesn't list a size on these. If i go with something, these or something else, I'll eventually post pics.

    Re: Customized 2012 CTS Coupe

    The wreaths and crests are "factory approved" and the design is very quality--the size of the "one piece" emblems is smaller than the two-piece (i.e. separate wreath and separate crest) and they are the only sizes that are factory authorized (i.e. exactly correct). On my first generation CTS they were on my C-pillar and received many compliments.

    The wheels look nice but imo should have went with wider tires on the rear b/c they look stretched to me...


    the ragtop doesn't bother so much as the pinstripe along the side, which makes the car look stocky. The profile in the second picture looks like a micro machines caricature of a CTS coupe to me

    I know there are folks out there that are going to hate this,but that's fine. I added the Cadillac crests to the sail panel on my coupe I like the look and I make the monthly payments

    Oh I see it now...the badge. Interesting placement, but like you said, you make the payment! I'm sure that there will be lots of opinions!
