    My 2005 CTS (PICS), Thoughts?

    Just wanted to post a couple pics of my CTS and see what people think. While most CTS owners like to work on speed and mechanical modifications I am more of an appearance type of guy. Here in Houston where I live customization and appearance are the big things when it comes to cars, a TON of car shows around Houston. So here she is!

    Things I have done to the car:
    20" Chrome and Black Rims on 245/35/r20 Tires
    6k HID Headlights and Fogs, Yes i know they look 8 or even 10k ish...
    Chrome door handles, pillars, roof trim, side mirror trims,
    Strobe Headlights, Foglights, Taillights, and Reverse lights, will try to post up a video later on of the whole light show going on
    Clear side markers, going for clear fogs next. They are $280 on ebay and im too lazy to do the lexan mod for the clears. AND I have yet to see what they look like when they are done
    White LED reverse, side markers, LED turn signals, and full white LED swap on interior
    Multi-color rims lights and multi-color LED strips in the top and bottom grill
    Sure there may be something im missing but all I can think of right now

    I have never seen light-up shoes on a car before, much less a Cadillac. Thank you for that.

    Me either, looks kinda cool actually.

    No offense thought but I personally think the car would look a whole lot better minus the chrome pillars and door handles, but that's just me...

    No problem and I've still got a good $500-700 on LEDs to go. This thing is a big thing at partys with the strobes going =P If you think its bad just wait!

    Not really trying to copy your style but I have to ask how did you mount those LEDs on the shoes?

    I agree, I think the chrome makes it look "cheap" but each to their own

    Im sorry but adding hid's and led's is not considered a modification to me. You have a crap load of space between the tires and fender. When i judged at car shows, i would deduct points for that. Other then that, the car looks ok. The lights, not for me but you like it so its all gravity. What kind of system you got going on?

    Its a ring of stainless steel that the leds were mounted on. You take off the rim and mount the ring behind the rim to whatever you can secure it too.

    Didn't say I did mods to the car. Its customizing it as I stated in my post. Yea I know, I bought four new tires for $600 and they stick out further then the fenders so I had to use spacers on the suspension so they don't rub. Do you think if I was to roll the fenders they would still rub? If so then I will just wait until I wear the tires out and then get some 225s later on. And I have stock sound as of now. I had a kicker solo x 12 and brutus hifonics 2400 brz on an optima yellow top in my grand marquis but didn't wanna go to big on the CTS at first. Am now considering a 10" solo x
