so i know that recaros are super simple to swap into a base CTS premium due to identical wiring (has to be cts premium though, for yummy ventilated seats)...so long as you avoid the 2009 model year (different wiring for some reason?)
however the search function hasn't told me two things
1) where do you find the seats? more specifically, what are some good ways to find totaled cadillac CTS-Vs? certain websites? call local salvage yards and hope you get lucky?
2) can you swap things like the instrument panel? I REALLY LOVE the led chaser lights on the speedo and tachometer on the 2011+ CTS models, can i drop that into an older 08 cts? How would i tell if the plugs are different? are there parts diagrams which show the plug shapes in detail?
no seriously, those chaser leds are SO DAMN COOL
not to mention the digital speedo is cool as well
