I know they make tons of bumpers but did they make the cts v bumper for the stock cts. I know it will fit just like the badges. Just calm down its not the end of the world. The do have a STS v emblem. Have a good day.
    I do tell myself that there are people out there who use the V badges on V6 CTS's, they're called posers. And as far as that STS-V badge goes, my Seville will never see one as that would be completely LAME considering V badges didn't even exist until after the Seville STS model was discontinued. And if I owned a 2005-current STS you can bet a V badge wouldn't see that car either.

    A "V" badge on a V6 CTS screams POSER, no ifs, ands, or buts about it.

    those wheels are STS wheels...just to inform you, any 03 to 07 CTS wheels will fit any 03 to 07 because they use 5 x 115 lug pattern. the 08+ wheels are now using 5x120 which obviously will not fit...some STS wheels will fit, just be careful of tire size in most cases

    Still on the fence about it. The 225/50 I have on there now fills up the wheel well pretty nicely. I might be better off spending the money on a Volant, but if some one comes along and slaps me in the face with some V springs I won't turn them down just in case.

    They are 18 inch STS wheels with a +51 offset. (Please no one rat me out to the STS guys, I don't want to be called an STS poser)
    Dig on eBay a little and you will see them. They will fit if you use a 225/50 in the front. If you want a fatter tire in the rear, you could stagger to a 255/45.

    Just don't go sticking on any 32v Northstar badges because it accents your windshield wipers I think your safe with just the wheels....which by the way look HOT!

    Darn that was going to be my next "mod". Thanks for the compliment on the wheels. I went digging for the sport appearance 12 spokes and came up with these. I'm pretty happy.

    For sure, I think they look better than the CTS sport package wheels actually, looks more luxurious. The added size and rubber fills out the wheel well nicely

    Cadillac should've put mesh behind the grill of the gen. 2 CTS, that plastic crap looks tacky IMO, but still some very nice CTS's there

    Calm down it was just a little humor. It would not matter if you stuck a flying angel on it, its your car. If you feel im a poser then your are entitled to your feelings. I have no quams with anyone on here. I would have to meet a person first before judging him/her. Food for thought. Have a good evening.

    I'm thinking about V springs and or FE4s. I want to lower the car but not slam it. Input?

    V springs and FE4s? I think you need some V badges to accent your windshield. LOL

    I would for sure, but FE4s are easier to come across than FG2s and less expensive. All of the V guys upgrading from FE4s are bidding me out of the market.

    I'm honestly surprised the V guys haven't shown up here and had a field day.

    I have the FE4 rears in and can't complain. I still haven't motivated myself to do the Eibachs or the fronts. No half decent shops want to install aftermarket parts and I hate springs with a passion.
