    That sounds like a good price! Mmmmmm I love seeing the big lower billet grille Basically with the body kit...I mean you could pay $500 to get everything done...but then again your kit could look like someone slapped it on and not perfetly fit...The more the cost usually the better quality of work you will get done. I've seen some cars out there where it looks like the body kit will fall off as there driving...VERY poorly put on... I spent a lot of $$ on my first kit...and it looked like it was stock with the car.... as they would say.....you get what you pay for

    Absolutely. That's why we make the changes in order to be different and express our individuality .

    Re: Body kit for CTS???

    Thats deep robbie i like that. Im probly gonna go with the CTS-V kit instead (its polyurethane, the other is fiberglass) and i think it makes the car more aggressive as the other one makes it more gawdy. Rob do you know if the side skirts are easy to install?

    They are held on by clips. They usually break upon removal. I suggest ordering new ones and have them ready.

    Re: Body kit for CTS???

    i am betting there are a few aftermarket companies that are makeing the GM cts-v body pieces.

    this happens after a few years.

    like a new front clip for a 97 grand prix is 350 from gm but about 105 from aftermarket, no difference in materials or anything.

    I tried calling around but no one is making them. I called www.bumpers.com and asked them to make them giving them a 15 piece guarantee - hopefully they'll bite and we can get a group buy together. if i get any callbacks i'll let everyone know.

    I just saw a ground effects kit on www.thespoilerfactory.com that looked pretty cool. Wish I had the extra money.

    Some of those kits are available as separate pieces. Pay as you go.

    I currently have 18's....let me say one thing....IF anyone chooses to get this body kit...you DO NOT DO NOT DO NOT want to lower the car...you will break the sh*t out of the front skirt....mine is scratched some on the bottom due to the big lip going in and out of work But I use touch up paint when I get hopme ther night if I end up doing a bottom fall..YEa, I like the 18's better on the car...it keeps the sporty look going on....you will def be happy with them.

    Skippy I Will get you all that information tomorrow...I have the records in a file in my office...
