    Cool 2009 Cadillac CTS silver

    Hey everyone! New to the forum and thought it was really cool what everyone was doing to their CTS's. I was wondering what cheaper type of mods i could do to my 2009 Cadillac CTS Silver? I am 17 and don't know much about my car, i've had it since december of 2012. My grandma had passed it down to me because she is now too old to drive herself around. Anything from LED's to just about anything would be nice! I don't have much done to the car and hope i could get some ideas off you guys! Links to pictures of things i could possibly put in the car would be awesome! Thanks!

    Window tinting is a good start. Not too expensive. Wheels are another option but now you're spending a bit more.

    Andrew, Welcome to the forum! You are one lucky grandson!

    Agreed that window tinting is a good start! I also think "the most bang for the buck" is the judicious use of plastidip to make your ride stand out. There are many threads on it's use with great pics.

    Re: 2009 Cadillac CTS silver

    How much do you think it would cost to get them tinted? Would it be every window? Windshield? sorry i have a lot of questions! Are there any laws against how dark in Oklahoma, if you know by any chance?

    Thanks! This is a really awesome forum! What would i plastidip on my car to give it more of a stand out feature? Is it easy?

    I paid 220 for tints. Everything but the front windshield. Also had them do the sunroof. I had quotes from 160-300 to do it.

    Every state has some sort of law. But most of the time its not an issue unless they catch you doing something else also

    Every state has laws regarding what tinting is allowed. Search the web. U can buy tint material pre-cut on eBay, cheap! Search!

    Again, because you're 17 you should be computer savvy. There are MANY threads here on plastidip, search! You could do all your chrome, the rims, the grill, etc. It's available in colors, though most use black. It's kind of like spraying paint from a spray can!

    I'd def get the sunroof tinted. I did mine and wish I would've even went with the 5% tint. I went with 20%. That's always the first thing I do with a new car, head over to the tint shop.

    I may have paid a little more for my coupe, around $240 but that's mostly because it's tou to do the back window.

    I wouldn't tint the front windshield. As for tint laws, it varies by state.
