He had hail damage.

Welcome to the forums and the V. You WILL become hopelessly addicted to it. At present, the only known cure is more time at the wheel.

Did you mean $21,500?

$12,500 doesn't seem possible unless it is a salvage title or something.

It would've taken a pissed off GF two weeks to have done that much damage though . . .

Very possible. Clean title, not salvage, no accidents. Just connections and networking..... Helping a dealer buy tires at a discount helps also :shhh:

Tint first, Ten fuel rail covers, V1 wing / fin. Then hopefully by then the Goodyears will be burnt down and I will put some Michelin's on it.

Also, anyone have a solution for the paint peal on the dash controls and the seat memory buttons?

Thanks

You need widened rear wheels so you can run 245/45 18 F and 275/40 18 R PS2s or PSSs(if they make them yet)...

You can get the 275/40 in a PS2 or an A/S Plus.

id look into the hankook v12's. Very nice sticky tiresNice for the price. But not as nice as PS2s. They don't launch as well, their limits aren't as high and they don't communicate as well. But, for a bargain basement price, it's a good tire...

I'm actually a big fan of the new BFG G force SS NT's. I happen to work at Michelin, and see a lot of the data. AS+ is your longest lasting all around, but the new SS is by far the best Michelin offered, and there not directional, as long as you are not worried about winter time....

Although the G force SS are directional I think they communicate a little better. almost half the price, and I dig the tread. Planning on going 255 all around. Maybe a small spacer out back to get the flush look... Any one have a suggestion on what size spacer I would need?

For the price, you can't beat BF Goodrich.

Congrats on the purchase and the price! Regular CTS's go for that price.

I'm in South Carolina too, what part are you from?

I'm from Lancaster, just below Rock Hill.
Even these days, I dont see many V's around this area. I saw a V2 once in Columbia and almost ran off the road!

There is a guy at my work that has a 2010..... I hate him....

We should try to start up some kind of an SC V meet.... There a nice local car show that goes on every first Sat. here in the upstate. Free to all, just a bunch of car guys and there cars.... I like to try and park by the other Caddy guys.... The looks I get....
