: Are CTS and CTS-V trunk lids the same?

03-06-12, 09:31 PM
I was rear ended at about 1 mile an hour tonight, and the majority of the damage was taken by the lower trunk lid, right on the V badge. If I decide to replace the whole trunk lid, will a 'raven black' CTS lid work, or is it v-specific?

Ooooo ... sorry to hear about this, Wes. How the heck did such a slow speed collision result in hitting your trunk lid? Was the other car's bumper at a different height?

Honda Passport, so def. a bit taller vehicle... Dude ended up folding his hood, putting his push bar thru his radiator, and more. Entire front end of his car, and some of the interior behind the rad was damaged. I was rear ended into another car.

The trunk lid will work from a CTS.

If you buy a new complete trunk with third brake light I know there's a couple on eBay for around 400 complete and your original brake light is still good please let me know I will buy it off you. ! Sucks tho :(

I thought those were the OPs pictures and I couldn't figure out why he only wanted a trunk lid. :hmm:

I was "bumped" by a tractor trailer who had tow hooks on his front bumper. I was in front of him at a stop light. He started moving while I was still stopped. Wound up pushing me 5 feet or so before he realized what he was doing. :(
