    Close, but that's it.

    Not the same wheel.

    Really? All I am saying is they are a little too similar.

    Well I thought we had finished this in PM, but since you took the time to post this up. Here ya go.

    Ya I guess it's trendy to bash vendors. But wait:

    #1 You are no longer a vendor on this forum. You indicated via PM, that it was a misunderstanding with Sal, blah blah blah. Either way there was obviously an issue. This undemines your shaky credibility (see #2)
    #2 You guys WAY over promised and under delivered. Again this tanks your credibility.
    #3 You had the earth's worst marketing slogan. "Envied by some, Respected by all." Respect is earned, not given. You also hae to actually produce products to be envied.

    I'll be honest that I haven't looked at your offerings for a while. Last time I checked basically everything for the CTS-V was 'comming soon'. there are a bunch of vendors that offer the same stuff you do or plan to for the CTS-V, and it's available now. Why should I be excited about your offerings, when thus far you've failed to deliver and have very limited credibility. I'll pass on D3. There just too many others out there, and I have too litle time to spend waitong or hoping on you.

    There's my OPINION. I'm done with this conversation. I won't bash or offer my $0.02 on you anymore.

    Ho,Ho, Ho!

    Re: Is this it?

    Things were finished. If you look at my post you will notice it was done prior to our communication via PM.

    Again there are no issues with Sal. Never really was, just a bunch of misleading theories about what was going on.

    Also that marketing slogan was based, not on D3 products, but on the status of Cadillac's vs. their European counterparts.

    Thanks,

    Re: Is this it?

    You guys have a very keen eye and an ability for magnification...

    They are different at the hub. However, looking from a distance, they appear to be the same wheel... I'd like something unique to the "V"... I guess that's why they make the aftermarket eh?

    Thanks for pointing out the differences!

    Re: Is this it?

    The G8 is the V's little brother so I do not mind the commonality in the wheel appearance. The new V will be the logical upgrade path for a G8 owner wanting to go upscale and up power.

    The G8 owners have a great headstart on modifying their car since it is already out in Australia as the Commodore VE. One company has a twin turbo conversion complete and another has already dropped in an LS7. I doubt our upgrades will be so quick in coming except the easy ones like pulley, calibration, intake and exhaust.
