    They're not. The '09s had the V on the left side. '10s to current have them on the right...

    Oh, and I hate the clear tails. Look ricey and I HATE how they contrast with the red 3rd brake light.

    Not a fan of the clears but kinda like the lower red led bars. Anyone know how/when they come on? Is there a GM part number where I can grab them from my local caddy dealer? Thanks

    I personally love the extra long spot for the rear license plate on the export,,, just looks more proportional.. Have always liked the euro-type plate better,, maybe cause it's different,, hmm?? If I lived there my whole life I might like the US version better, who knows..lol.

    Just wanted your opinion, we get the export spec cars here with clear rear lights and amber turn signals, im not sure if i like them... cant decide whether to change to red, tint or leave as they are??? What you'll think?

    Also, interestingly the export cars are rated at 564hp, i presume this is because they can run on 98 gas??

    Cheers

    Tampa2Dubai,
    I dont know much about this, but it looks like you have a low plate number.. A friend of mine has a brother-in-law over there and he was trying to get a low number plate for some crazy amount of money,, like 30,000 AED (something like 7-8K US or so).. Is this true? Lower # = more $$?? Does it have to do with the letter in front also? Just curious..

    Nice car by the way,, I vote for a light tint at least on those tail lights.. Looks kinda ricey like the altezzas for civics, integras, etc back in the 90s.. I did the spray on smoke,, maybe that will work,, looks great on red lenses,, but might be a risk on clear..

    Yeah, this tends to be true, this number is only an old number, not worth alot, but some numbers do fetch stupid money especially of there double or triple digits eg. 777.

    Think im gonna change them for the US spec red tail lights, the cops here dont like tint on lights apparently...

    Anyone know where i can get some ?? or wanna swap?

    Congrats on ur new V.

    Try looking on ebay for a set of US spec taillights if nobody wants to trade.
