Ive always liked the way the V looked without a rear spoiler, but the more i see the deck spolier from the 06 07 cts sport models, im really tempted to put one on. What do you guys think, stock(no spoiler), the sport one, or the cts-v option spoiler?

I vote no spoiler.. it looks clean and doesn't take away from the sleeper appeal

I'm a fan, but it really is all up to you. One of a handful of options (cheap too):

I vote spoiler. The rear, to me, just seems like it's lacking something without it.

Spoiler. I have the same one. Pretty cheap and fairly easy to install. Just make sure you seal the screws from underneath to avoid leakage potential.

It looks better but it's all in the eyes of the beholder.

I highly doubt I'll ever get a spoiler, unless it's a track realted on (like V-Sam's boing 777 inspired edition), as I'm not really into cosmetic type mods.

With that said, I was driving home from work yesterday next to a nice clean black cts-sport model, and that is hands down the best looking spoiler in my opinion. It fits the car perfectly, integrating into the trunk lid and 3rd brake light almost seemlessly. It is a a hair different than the Spectre Werks model, and it shows.

On a related note, GM really did a good job on the Sport model. The exhaust is perfectly sized, and I absolutely LOVE the grill.

Yes, if you're going to go spoiler, do the Sport edition. But for heaven's sake, don't do a Sport grille on the V...

I am a non-spoiler guy, think the rear looks fine as is. Of course add the B&Bs and the 295s:

Your V looks nasty with that rubber hanging out the side!:lildevil::lildevil::lildevil:

Is 295s the widest you can run in the rear without rubbing with the stock fenders???

295s will rub if you have a couple of fat chicks in the backseat, or if you are lowered-mine has neither, but rubs on rare occasions. You can also roll the fenders, just get a baseball bat and DIY.
285s will give you no grief at all.
You will need a 9.5-10.0" rim for either size.

Some good reading for 'The Nature Boys' fans: http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Ric_Flair

Amazing, he retired this year at 59, either:
A) loved the sports and all that came with it
B) was paying triple alimony
C) never really made big $$$, just made his promoters rich
D) had a really ugly wife at home and the road was his friend

One of his best lines eva:
Your mother wanted a girl! Your father wanted a boy - They were both satisfied!..Woooooo!"

Back on topic, spoiler is for you is you like appearance mods, to be it is another to wax, another thing you hope is the same color as the car after you get it back from the painter, another part of the car that is difficult to wax, another expense that does not equate to HP gain, another expense better saved for a Maggie, etc...

Thanks for your opinions. I ordered the sport spoiler from GM, i usually dont like any body add ons but the spoiler really goes well with the lines of the V. As soon and the cars out from the shop ill post some pics.

I like the subtle look of the 05 sts spoiler...any more throws off the balance of the car. just my opinion

i like the sport spoiler, my V is silver with no spoiler, been thinking about it though, also would like to get some wider rubber on it, i wish someone would make a set of replica wheels that were wider for the rear, love the look of the widest tire that will fit without rubbing, considering lowering, and would love to smoke all the lights on the car. eventually do some sort of exaust, and get a knn air cleaner. don't want to go crazy with mods, but would like to do some effective inexpensive stuff.
