Coming from someone who HAS a V why did you stick a V logo on the side of a Escalade? What performance upgrades do you have?

x2 -- I recently spotted a truck identical to mine near the office; they have put in some of those 'chicken wire' vents that had a 'V' in them as well.. I was :rant2::rant2::rant2::histeric::alchi:

The Escalade looks awesome but I feel the "V" shouldn't be there. Every vehicle with balls will be showing that Escalade it's tail lights and the "V-Series" will just be assumed as another badge like the "R" every ricer puts on their vehicle...

Impressive build it is. Awesome numbers as well. Is that build and numbers worthy of a V logo? Sure it is. But is it a V? No.. That's the difference for me.

Instead of the V logo why not order the "Supercharged" emblem that the STS-V uses? Still unique and not false advertising at the same time...
