    lol i just fit perfect. I did actually break the seat after 3 days with the car. The motor blew and the tracking went out on the Recaros too! I brought it back and they said this is a first for them. If a dealership says this, I'd issume im a little rubinesk for the seat than suggested by the factory specs...

    6' 7" and 330lbs is a little Rubinesk......... Dude that is AWESEOME! I got to think that Recaros were not designed for a little rubinesk.

    Re: Black Tumbler Coupe finished!

    Gorgeous. I'm trying to figure out what to do with my calipers and emblems. You've given me some inspiration, but I may go lime green.

    I'm only 6'2" 215lbs and I broke the seat track once on the Recaros, it's starting to creak again, and the seat is rocking back and forth approx 2"... Any suggestions?

    No lie, if I didnt have the yellow theme, which comes with the black diamond edition, I would of went Lime Green! its funny you say that. Lime Green is awesome and i havnt seen it yet. I have seen that electric blue on the vette ZR1 color before and that looks amazing too on black wheels. I would go those two colors if I had a choice. Also, if your car is under warrantee, it should be covered 100%. If mine breaks again, they said they would just replace the seats themselves. Otherwise, there isnt much too do. Its just not made for bigger guys i guess.

    Re: Black Tumbler Coupe finished!

    Hey Man, where you on University Dr going south, right around broward mall?

    If so, DAAAAYYYUUUUMMM, your car is scary mean! I was driving beside you in a blue M3 sedan, and honestly felt like putting my tail between my legs and run away

    Not a big fan of the Caddy, but you did a superb, and I mean SUPERB job on the car!

    Best looking CTS-V I've seen... sounds great, looks even better, and those fat rubbers and yellow brembos make the car just perfect.

    Well done man!

    Re: Black Tumbler Coupe finished!

    Hey, first off I love the car. Secondly, I too am thinking of doing a unique combo with my calipers and emblems. I was thinking the blue vette calipers but if I did that I would like to replace the red on my emblems with blue. Where did you go to get the custom emblems made and how much did it cost? If you do not mind my asking. (sorry for the money question since everyone knows your real name. I'm just used to being able to ask these kind of questions on a semi-anon forum.)

    Looks like I'm a little late seeing this thread, but I definitely approve of the look. Nice job man. I hate chrome and blacked it out within 2 weeks of having it also.

    I've had my headlights/tailights tinted for nearly 18 months now and haven't had any problems from the cops either.
