    Re: Cts lease return

    The problem with your 'plan' is that the person returning on their lease would be charged for the non OEM paint work on the doors. Not to mention the difficulty with transport of any exchanged parts. You didn't mention where you are located either.

    I know you're thinking outside of the box, but you're way out of the box on this one!

    Good Luck, Marv

    If you have a thousand dollars then just get them repainted again by a caddy dealer so they will match OEM.

    Or I would have gotten the whole car painted. Maybe one heluva detailer can help.

    This whole thread does not belong in Performance category, either.

    Even if you found four doors to replace yours the VINs would be different, which would be a red flag for anyone doing a thorough inspection of the car. That would probably lower the value more than a bad paint job.

    Re: Cts lease return

    If you think about it, who would want to do this with you? What gain is in it for them? They have to remove and re-install their own doors for what? This includes electrical, too. Paint will still be different as it comes from a different batch and age and condition. What a PITA. This is not personal, but this is something that I would never do.
