    sand it off? haha why would i do that.. then i would be back to the original look. i was going for a all "murdered" out look and thats the results im getting. as of yesterday i also got the calipers and inside the rotors painted red to match the lip of the wheel. it sets it off SOOOOO good! i can still see with the lights tinted but not as good! therefore when i put HID's in it ill be able to see better. plus the HID's look way better than stock lights

    I saw a murdered out CTS a while back. You could barely make out the brake lights, and it wasn't even sunny.

I am sure they have a department just to clarify this for people if you really wanted to know, but please quit believing that your car's are so rare, just utilize the compnine site for your RPO codes and thats it
    As far as I can tell the CTS was made in *one* US plant, Grand River, Mich .

    They are also built in China .

Had a maroon escalade i tined like that and it looked pretty good.
    I like your idea, and the color is red jewel tintcoat/tricoat...im not sure wat type of coat it is exactly, but i know theres not another vehicle of the same color in my area. You know of some decent tent to buy that wont burn a hole in my pocket? lol or wuld some stuff from o'rileys or somthn work fine?


    and the chome rims look good, but i also feel the black wuld look nice, that black on orange looks sharp man.

    I'm rather curious to know how many 07 sunset blue CTS w/ performance package exist.
    I also havent seen 1 with that color, regardless of options. There are a couple colors like that, the light green in early years, the orange, the purple-black... The look much nicer then they sound, Cadillac did a good job with the colors.

If someone looked at a stock cts head on that had its bumper changed to a v bumper they would think its a CTS V. It would not be until they walked around the car and realized it was not. They would think its some one trying to have the V look no knowing the person had just changed the bumper for appearence reasons. So would you acuse the owner of the cts of trying to fool someone into thinking they have the v? If you were to read my replies i never claimed someone changing their bumpers or side skirts were trying to be posers. I believe they did it because they wanted a certain look. What i did say was, me personally, thought it was the same. A crossed checkered flag is not a cadillac emblem. If i were into fords and had a stock stang that i was working on and the cobra badge gave it the look i wanted it would be on there. Its not like i would take my sls and put STS or DTS on it because i would still end up with three chrome letters. At first i tried the CTS letters on the fenders but it did no bring it together like i wanted. As i searched the cadillac emblems it was the v badge that did it for me. As you stated in the begining of your reply "IMO" you are right, it is your opion, and of course IMO the badges stay because like you said to each his/her own. Have a good evening.
    You seem to be a very aware lad, yet you ignore 1 very simply fact. Badges represent something. Thec crest and wreath is common to all Cadillacs because it is a corporate logo meant to cover the entire brand. The V badge represents a very specific set of vehicle performance levels under that umbrella. Simply put, you are misrepresenting what the car has, as that badge is has a very specific meaning to it. You can make all the excuses you like, but none are worthwhile. Its posing, plain and simple. Bumpers are not the same thing. They are a body panel with a design that changes with each evolution of the Cadillac design language. The V badge is more then just a look or a body trinket to complete a look. Its look M.D. alongside a doctors name, or an NYPD badge. It respresents the best performance version Cadillac offers of that specific model. There is no grey area. This is oreos. I spose youd be ok with someone putting EXT badges on an Avalanche?
