Hello everybody I just picked up my 2012 CTS-V Coupe White diamond with black recaro seats. I have recently installed Eibach springs, took everyones advice reading post and cut 5" off the front springs. Love the front stance but now contemplating if cutting back springs to give more of a level drop. Has anyone done it ? Just added tint today went 5% windows and back and 35% on front windshield (yes its illegal)

here are a couple of pics...

Next mods:
Plasti dip ( grill, possible chrome trimming ) ANY ADVICE?>
21" Rims any suggestions ?

Looks great. I also just bought a 12 Coupe and love it. I have Eibachs on the way. I too want to black out the trim. Do a search you will find a few write ups on it.

Nothing for nothing but how can you tell what is going on with your front tires on the drive and the rear tires in the street? you need to part on a level surface before you decide to start cutting more. I've only seen the 5" cut done on sedans and it looks great. From your pics you look way lower in the front but I think its the uneven surface you are on. Can you post up more pics with the car parked on a concrete pad?

Looks great like it is.....my personal choice is the slight rake and the way I have my 11 Coupe with D3s .....cut coils front only.
