So I got my hands on an 05 CTS-V... 30k w/ Certified Extended Warranty...

Mods so far: tints... exhaust... rear spoiler...

to come: intake... powdercoat wheels black... black out lights...

prolly wont do any major motor work until the extended warranty runs out...

here are some pics... and you can hear the exhaust at www.youtube.com/nickr28784 ...kinda windy in the video...

:welcome: You should check out some other looks for your car...the blacked out thing is getting overdone!! Maybe even trade it in on a Redline..which is ACTUALLY the fastest color...

They just didn't want to pay extra for the super special high horsepower paint when they were first produced!

My suggestion is black rims with a red line like your bike then lower it. A guy named goody did that and it looked super hot

also then paint the calipers red like I did and get some new black V decals from 8th day creations (they are a vendor here (red calipers on a black V FTW) http://i50.photobucket.com/albums/f321/brentman2006/V%20Dropped/IMG00148-20090316-1735.jpg

It would Look sick to have a matching ride and bike!
However I would clear out the fogs and sidemarkers ...red and orange do not match

ohhh dang that looks sick... think i might have to go that route...

he actually painted the rim too, rather than opting for the red line on the tire...

Prolly wont clear them but BLACK... but maybe clear them out then black so there is no orange at all....

So yeah it would look sick next to your bike all blacked out ;)
