    Where are all the aftermarket parts??? CTS-V not cool or popular enough????

    Really people??????

    With the popularity of this car, I am pissed off as to the lack of aftermarket parts available. When I had my BMW, there were 10,000 websites with parts for my 335i. Now I can't even find a spoiler for the CTS-V Sedan. Found some for the CTS but not the V. Also found for the coupe. Even on Ebay there isn't any for 09+ models. Am I missing something? I've searched for hours.

    I do not want to go with any D3 parts. Their prices are 5X anything thats reasonable. I tried Specter Werkes but they have nothing anymore. Yes there are few vendors out there selling engine upgrades, but I am talking strictly APPEARANCE parts/mods.

    I couldnt even find any OEM spoiler on the actual caddilac.com website.

    If you have one or know where to get one for a 2011 CTS-V sedan, hopefully pre-painted, pleaaaseeeeee let me know.

    Maybe we need a list of all 09+ CTS-V's appearance mods available.

    If anything makes me switch back to BMW, it will be the lack of aftermarket parts/mods/accessories for this car.

    HELP!!!

    hard to put $$$$ into developing and tooling parts for a a car with less than 12k of them on the road. Really limits your return on investment. Just the byproduct of a relatively rare car. D3 charges so much for a reason.

    Bump

    Still need a spoiler and can't find o e. Anyone?

    Do the 2011 cts and cts-v have same rear? Would the spoiler for cts be an exact match for the V as well?

    D3 is drastically dropping their prices if you want to look there again. Front spoiler was 995 and dropped to 549. Not bad

    I tend to agree. The only thing it's lacking is a very premium set of wheels...but I do like the stockers just fine.

    I think any 09+ regular CTS spoiler should also fit a cts-v. I e-mailed some people for clarification and still waiting for return e-mail.

    I know they look good. Thats why i bought one

    But everyone wants to make it look their own and unique. I am just frustrated because i've been looking for something so simple as a rear spoiler for a week now and cant find one.

    Keep coming up on same old cts factory oem one thats not even flush and looks like a honda civic spoiler, or one from D3 thats like a wing for the third light. D3 used to sell a nice flush full back spoiler similar to the specter werkes one but now nothing on their website. And specter werkes is gone out of business so they dont carry.

    AAAAAAAARRRGGGGGG.....where can i get a flush full rear spoiler for a 2011 cts-v???

    This should be simple right??? I mean its just a damn spoiler, its not like i need a gold plated steering wheel, and that may be easier to get too

    Find a fabricator, design the part you want, make enough extras, sell them, and profit !

    If you try and head down this path, you will find out why there are so few aftermarket parts specifically for the V.

    As others have said, simple economics.

    Rear spoiler for the V would be difficult due to the fact of the third brake light is a spoiler. I saw one for top of rear window for the sedan
