    New Paint Color?

    Any good ideas/suggestions on a new paint color to the this CTS? Im thinking maybe a Black Cherry Red (almost black, kind of kameleon) with chrome flakes. I have yet to see a new paint color on a cts. thanks

    I was thinking about doing a two color scheme with black and silver but i ended up not liking the results, with paint its so expensive that you cant afford to make mistakes!!

    How about black, midnight black, metallic black, dark black, jack black, shiny black, really shiny black...plus theres always black.

    You already have the color straight bro. What do you think about adding chrome or gold accessories?

    I wouldn't change a thing on that car. Nice grille, great rims. Perfect color.

    If it ain't broke, don't fix it. Looks sweet just like it is.

    Personally I think Orange is the way to go

    But I have thought about other colors too. A good flakey Metallic Red - on a lowered CTS Might look good.

    But your car looks great the way it is. Black was my first choice of color when I went looking.

    BUILDINGCTSAMG, were you meaning the silver/black scheme that is on the Lund Cadillac CTS? (www.lundcadillac.com). That is a nice look to this car. I was thinking about a Black Cherry red or a candy dark red.

    Re: New Paint Color?

    yeah i was thinking about doing the same sort of thing, a little more agressive, but I deciuuded against it.

    I was thinking about embroidering my headrests, but dunno what i want in them.

    I also really want to do lighted door sills, but cant find any!

    Well, the CTS isnt really a "experiment with a new paint color" kind of car, yours looks great the way it is. I agree the only other color id consider would be something outrageous like orange, but ill take any color from the factory as long as its black...er dark grey...
