    2013 CTS Coupe and CTS-V hood????

    I have seen a couple of posts on here showing a CTS-V hood on a CTS Coupe, without the front bumpers changed out as well.

    Can anyone definitively state that a CTS-V hood will fit on a CTS Coupe without modification (apart from swithing out the V-hood's smaller front chrome trim for appearance's sake)?

    I just ordered the hood and am about to find out, but I would like to know if anyone on the forum has an answer.

    Thanks in advance!

    On my 2011 CTS, a 2011 CTS V hood fit right on no problems. If you pay close attention to where the hood meets the bumper in the two spots next to the grill you can tell it doesn’t quite belong, almost doesn’t look latched all the way. Regardless I still love it.

    Thanks! That is exactly what I thought. And like you, I'm doing it anyways. With the V-Hood it is closer to looking like it was originally designed in the concept phase (when I first fell in love with it).


    I'll post pictures when it is done. Do you have pictures of yours?

    Thanks again.

    OK I got it done and it turned out great! Better than expected. Here is a picture. Next up new wheels and then to the performance upgrades: Borla exhaust and new air intake. IMG_7061-1.jpg

    Nice! Did you need to get the padding for inside the hood as well?

    So it came as a complete set? It included the chrome strip? Painted or unpainted?
