    Lowered, black chrome OEM wheels, blacked-out trim

    Yet another satisfied D3 springs customer! Wheels black chromed using the Goodrich PermaStar chrome process (thanks James/D3 for the recommendation!). Trim previously blacked out by D3: matte polyurethane on the grille mesh, semi-gloss on all the brightwork:

    I would sure like to see a close-up of the side of your car, Mas, with the wheels pointed straight in line with the car. Those rims are beautiful. Come on, man, don't be camera shy.

    Striking, Mas, I certainly hate to be a copy Kat but so far you have not done anything on that car that I don't like. I guess that I am going to have to get a Republik of Kali license plate that says #2. That wheel treatment compliments the car very well, probably much better than any other type of wheel change or treatment would.

    As others have reported, she rides very nicely--slightly firmer than stock, but not objectionable--worthy of this class of vehicle. The MR suspension is able to cope just fine--no pogoing, bump steer, or tramlining.

    Probably because the other 99.9% of the people that buy Cad CTS-V's are envelope huggers, and GM knows that.
