Hey guys,

I took delivery of it about a month ago. I go it through Scott Pratt of Superior Cadillac from the forums. Great guy, only one who would give me the time of day. All of my local dealers treated me like crap. Definitely a good guy to buy from though.

Anyways, I put some 24's on it and tinted it(18% to match the rears). The 24's were cheap, about 900$ for the set. I wanted the TIS 08's in Black but they are backordered 4 months, so I picked these up to hold me over (it's a sickness, haha) but I think I might keep them, they look pretty good in my opinion. I MAY lower it. I'm not positive because we do get a good amount of snow here, and I've read it's a pain in the snow with a lowered vehicle, but who knows. The 24's look kinda small haha. I wish it wasn't such a pain to take the orange reflectors out of the headlights too. Alright here are some pics -

I had some pretty bad hard water spots on it for about a week or two. I have a well at my house and hosed it off and then the next day I had spots. Apparently I have some crap in my well water. It's was tough at first to keep a vehicle clean because I was used to this with my old truck and not cleaning it -

Very, Very minor rub. I can't tell which damn wheel well its coming from though. It seems like its the right rear, whenever I go over a decent sized bump, but I've never had anything rub in the rear so it confuses me a little. The fronts have not made any noise at all though from what I can tell. I should be able to zip tie it when I find out where it's rubbing.

Thanks for the compliments everyone.
