    JW,

    In reference to your rear seats. Did you get them redone or are backs factory drop down? OH YEAH. Your car looks good. I would do the badges though.

    Re: Post your best pics of your cts here!

    Yeah i have seen posers and i do not fall into that category. If you ask me if my car is a v i will tell you no, if you want to race because you think its a v the answer is no. Im a pretty straight up person who if i did not know you i would not flat out call you a liar. Anyone whos knows me knows that having a v is something i could do before you got dressed in the morning. I dont track cars, race cars or live where i can stretch one out to 160+ and not pose harm to other drivers. So why have a a caged high performance car. Thats just not right to me. But to some its all about having one sit in their drive way. And if thats what they want to do with their money then thats their choice. No badge will ever truly tell whats under someones hood. The v may stand for a powerful v8 under the hood but how powerful is not known unless you are told or get a look under the hood. The v6 is not the v8 but it is a very powerful engine for its size. If you pulled up next to a 2010 ctsv not knowing it was the hennessey v, you would assume it had 556hp under the hood. With that assumption you would be off 144+ HP. Thats just my 2 1/2 cents.

    There out of a V they will mount right in with no modification. I like them not because they make the car look fast, LOL, but because the fold down and give you more room in the trunk if you need it. Bought a stand one day and had to have it hang out of my trunk. Saw the rear seats in a V flip down instead of the little port hole the regular cts have so i had the seats taken out and changed. Comes in handy.

    If it is truely about accenting your red calipers then you could just as well put some M5 badges on there. I think they look cooler, here's the link, only $15!

    Just a couple quick observations....

    Getting a boner over a car is clearly more gay than adding V badges.

    Everyone is killing JW for his badges, but not one comment about the red car with literally 7 different plastic stick ons???

    Bottom line, the last picture of JW's car with the sprinklers in the background is excellent - nicer then 9 out of every 10 cars on here - stop with the envy guys, his car is F'in great looking - give credit where it is due...

    Those are nice looking badges, might look good one one of my avalanches but not on none of the caddys. The light blue color throws it off.

    Re: Post your best pics of your cts here!

    JW...i wasnt trying to start a frenzy on you. and you are exactly right, as long as you like it then it is all good. i do like your car actually, and i love the V seats you put in it, the wheels, and the few other little things i noticed. i was just stating that i personally didnt like the V badges. i am sure you can take a look at any one of my cars and not like one or two things on any of them as well. but like you stated, it would be your opinion and thats it. dont change your car, because the one rule of thumb here, opinions are like *******s, everyone has one

    Re: Post your best pics of your cts here!

    Thank you and point taken. I would never take them off because of someones elses opion unless it was something i did and it was brought to my attention that a saftey hazzard might exist. I have seen it before on this forum where a person got slammed because of the badges. I like this forum because of all the good information it has on it. Ive owned cadillacs even before i had a license. If i get a certain look i want i research it to see if its fesible and then i go for it at what ever cost. Im not a performance or suspension modify person. I like to keep them thems stock. Unless it time to replace pads or shocks then i do upgrade. Ive seen cars on here that made me wonder what planet they were from. But if it makes them sattisified when they come out to look at there car then thats all thats matter. I believe in telling someone who ask for a opinion about a mode what you think. But to me thats as far as it goes, the person can either accept your opinion or go in thier own direction. Cadillac would have never made the cts if they listened to a lot of people who said they should just stick to luxury cars. But never theless its all good and it takes more than comments about emblems to ruffle my feathers. You have a good day.

    Re: Post your best pics of your cts here!

    First off, I'm not trying to hate, your car is actually well done. If there were no opposing views on anything the world would be a boring place and we'd have no Stanley Cup Final.

    Anything that attaches with double sided tape tends to be generally accepted as bad though. I removed my bowtie and centered the SS and Supercharged badges on my trunk...and was promptly eaten alive by a select few that thought I was a base model.

    There was a Youtube video with a nameless Cobalt LT(2.2L NA) that stuck "SS" and "Turbocharged" badges on his trunk. He ran a 16.5 or so and people jumped all over it. It took me about two seconds to figure out that he was a base model as he was missing the side skirts and the rear bumper. We knew he was a fake, but imports and Fords thought less of our cars.

    On the other hand I seen a CTS with "V6" and "SE" badges that looked to be off of a Camry by the font on them. He had stick on portholes(it was a gen 1 base model) and was quite happy with his car, so be it. Not everyone is going to like every mod, I've taken some flak for my MSR 20s in person and I can see where they come from.

    Just don't turn into this guy:



    ...and you'll do just fine. My old man has started it on his Dodge Ram and I want to tear it all off.

    Re: Post your best pics of your cts here!

    I don't see anything wrong with the Chryser in the picture! You can rag on my car but it's unique. You want me to take something off my car just let me see some one else have it on theirs! Some things like the wheelwell moldings I have been ragged about are there because of all the ignorant soccer moms with their dozens of kids slamming doors into it. I actually had someone slam a door into one of my cars that just got out of the paint shop and when confronted about it said "Dont worry I only took off a little paint" If it didn't have factory side moldings you can bet I'd have stick on one of those too.I liked the side vent look but I didnt want one's that looked just like the 2nd generation ones. My opinion V grills are ugly you'll never see one on mine (Sport grill yes).

    Re: Post your best pics of your cts here!

    IF that was a Chrysler in the picture it might look halfway decent, but that is a Dodge Charger, and looks way too bedazzled for my taste. Cars don't look good with stuff stuck all over them, keep it simple, keep it clean....

    Re: Post your best pics of your cts here!

    I would never do that to my car because its not the look i would want. But whoever done that it was because it was the look they were wanting. Beauty is in the eye of the beholder and when that guy/girl comes out to look at their car their smile alone could knock you down. I have thought about buying one of those just to see what i could do to it. Im satisfied with the cts and i am ready to move onto another project. I think its time fo rosie to have a make over. I dont loose sleep over the remarks and i wish everyone well with whatever they decide to do with their vehicle. I say go for it, live and learn.To accept criticism and handle it in a proper maner makes you a better person. Have a good day. P.S. i would say let your dad live his fantsy, he,s earned it.
