well, i got my 04 cts-v in february after having my truck stolen in october (not ur everyday 87 truck :P). ive been on these forums everyday since feb 14th reading and absorbing. im more of a reader than a typer haha. i have to thank all the members on their awesome info in helping me choose what to do and have done to my car to make it exactly that, mine. things ive had done, full cat-back 3"magnaflow exhaust. UUC short shifter from linsday caddy (thx to forum) with V2 suede shifter knob. painted the wheels, grills, and engine cover. yes, i know im missing the 6 haha. i absolutely love this car. first manual ive had that has any kind of power and man is it fun as hell to drive. glad ive been reading about the rearend issues or it would have been a short drive :P. all in all great car, and great community that goes along with the cts-v.

its no problem. it set me back $15,500. i got a pretty nice discount since my truck was stolen from the parking garage of frank kent caddy my dad has worked at for 35 years.

and CANCER, fair enough. i dont think i want anything with cancer in the name following me around haha. how do you post pics like that? <<< NEWBIE QUESTION OF THE DAY

Only in the great state of Texas can you get a CTS-V for 15 grand. I'm getting closer to my dream of owning one. lol

Congrats on the new car and welcome to the forum! I'm glad you've been able to glean so much knowledge so far and your car is looking great!

As for the pictures, the best way to display them is to upload them to a picture hosting site then put image tags around the url. The text would look like this: url
