    Yeah, Cadillac wasn't crazy when they came up with these colors. And Glacier Blue wasn't a 'what about the women who drive CTS-Vs' color choice. In person, it's pretty kick ass. Blue in sunlight, silver in shade, and picks up the colors of surrounding objects to give it a multi-color pearlescent appearance.
    Gloss, DEFINITELY! I had the matte on the grille of my black raven and wanted to glossify it. With the blue, the gloss black will pop...

    I always wondered what it would look like with black accents. Was looking at a ats in this colorthe other day. I think it is a great combo as Long as it is glossy black.

    I like it stock personally unless you're blacking out all the chrome.

    I'm thinking a full chrome blackout will be murdering it. I need some kids washable black finger paint to play with these ideas

    Your car looks great stock! I agree with those who are tired of the blacked out look. You already have something unique within this small community, why change your Vagon to look more like other guys V's?

    Typically I like black. On your car they both look good. I kind of like the chrome on the light blue.

    Personally, I like the color. I'd tint it out first things, first. Then I'd black out the mesh portion to match the black rims, but leave chrome trim around the grill and rest of car except maybe black out the badges as well. I, myself, would do a black gloss not a huge fan of the matte...has more of a cheap-ish feel on a Cadillac. Yes, as stated above PLEASE get rid of the red calipers! That's the only thing I can possibly say the I dislike about your Vagon. Paint them black, glacier blue...or switch off with stock silvers or something lol

    Appreciate all the opinions guys. Both positive and negative are fine. Ultimately you have to see it in person to make a final verdict. The calipers, just like the Glacier Blue paint, make a whole lot more sense when you see it in person.
