    SATIN Black/blacked out '11 CTSV Coupe and other mods...

    I've been meaning to post some pics of my car ever since I've had it covered with 3M Satin black vinyl last year but I never got to it... Now, since I'm selling it, I figure it's my last chance. It's a 2011 with manual/saffron interior. The car is an absolute beast (554 hp at the rear wheels), and it looks like the Batmobile lol I went with the satin wrap vs the matte since it has a little shine to it, looks a little darker. I wasn't a big fan of the "primed" look...
    I've put 31K miles on the car and have not had ONE issue with it.

    Here are the mods listed. Hope you enjoy the pics. I'll be posting more info in the Classified section (if I get to it)
    1) 3M Satin Black wrap
    2) Satin Black moldings (all chrome on the car)
    3) Satin Black Forgestar 20x9 and 20x12 wheels with 345 tires in the rear :-)
    4) Blacked out rear lights (painted/clear coated)
    5) Blacked out Borla exhaust tips
    6) Lowered on H&R's
    7) D3 CAI
    8) Dealer installed yellow calipers
    9) Extra Satin Black Vossen 20x9 and 20x10.5 (car is presented on the Vossen website) with performance winter tires
    We've put a lot of effort into making sure the satin (not matte) black matches everywhere. We had to have the molding done twice... In the end it looked PERFECT

    Gorgeous! I agree that a satin finish is more attractive than matte.

    Also, nice gains with just a CAI (and tune, I assume). GLWS.

    Heehee... any such changes (pulley changes, porting intake, custom tune) would void certain aspects of the warranty :-)
