    The CTS-V coupe third brake light different from base coupe?

    Does anyone know if the third brake light on a 2013 CTS-V coupe is bigger/ different than the ones that come on the base model coupes? I recently bought a factory wing for a CTS coupe and it doesn't fit the brake light. Seems that I need a thinner light. Only other way of knowing is to go to Cadillac and compare my brake light to a coupe. Thanks for any input.

    From what I've seen, they are a bit more aggressive on the V than base. Someone posed this question awhile back about the sedans, too.

    Hello,

    As already mentioned the standard coupe third brake light is different. There is a much more aggressive rake on the V 3rd brake light. However if you are looking for a spoiler that is designed for the V coupe, we have a few options.
