I was waiting for that sweet coupe to get posted. Not *my* style, but impressive nonetheless.

The car is a wrap and I wrapped it. The material cost is about $600. It is 3M that I picked up from StickerCity.com. Those are 20" TSW Nurbering in bronze. The car is lowered on D3 springs with a 1/4 coil cut from the front springs.

I built a 2.5" exhaust with Corsa cans, 2.55 upper pulley, alky injection that I put together, I tuned it with HP Tuners, short ram intake I put together, wide and O2, carbonfiber rear diffuser, and more I can't think of at the moment.

i'll go for this.

No mods. Driven only on trips, no daily driving or bad weather. Example on how it is used, have owned it for over 3 months, have driven it 8 days total. Each day average distance drive is 225 miles. Have not reset mpg computer for the purpose of watching the mpg climb slowly as the engine breaks in. It now reads 19.9 mpg for 2000 miles total of driving. In 30 years this car could have 150,000 miles but only driven 660 days out of 11,000 days. That is how I plan to enjoy this particular car. I expect the car to show and drive like it is one year old when it is 30 years old. All of us V owners have a future collectable, and if treated right, can still be enjoyed while being a future investment.

I love the bronze color wheels Blitz (and price) and almost picked it for my white car. Forgeline didn't have that color available but I probably could have talked them into it. :thumbsup:

I think it is the photo processing, but the original pics on the first page make the gold on my wheels really bright and blingy. They are actually "race gold" and more subdued.

Thanks! love the white I want to do a matte white car. In 2009, one of the prettiest colors I've seen was a Mercedes-Benz SL63 AMG Edition IWC. It was a pearlish white, silky matte finish and was gorgeous. I'd never want to try and touch that up.

I demand a recount. The members in Florida obviously need special instructions on how to click the Blitzkrieg radio button.

This is the first CTS V i have seen with an aggressive wheel set up- it looks killer. Im hoping to see something like this on a wagon in the near future.... Whats the offset on your rears? and did you have to trim or make any mods at all due to rubbing?

cheers
