I'm in to making your car unique, but I'm not feeling the green calipers. The CTS-V is a gentlemans super
car, to me the green screams fast and furious wanna be. If you like it and want to be original then to each his own. That's just my opinion.

I like it better than the factory red calipers.

Lambo green looks very good as a contrast on dark colored cars. You just need it somewhere else on the car too make it work. The CTS logo's are a good option.

vivid racing's E90 M3 has a SUPER hot lambo green/dark blue color combo with the mirrors and supercharger cover in green too.

edit; I just realized I'm 1/2 the age of the nay-sayers.. so I'll presume it's a demograph thing.

like the rims too..

I like the color. If you added a ground effect color strip it would pull the whole package together. 97993

Just a thought. But it sure draws attention

Thanks for all the opinions.
Stillborn: the photoshop was done by the guy at the shop not by me, so cant help u there.

Pat2tf2: all the green is photoshop, currently calipers are stock grey color, chrome around windows is wrapped on a grey metallic that closely matches wheel color and all other chrome including all emblems are plastidipped black.

M5eater: was searching for that car but didnt find photos w painted mirrors, not that i will paint them.....

Other color options im considering are bronze, red and yellow. Guy at the shop said he will do the photoshop in this colors and send them to me so i can compare them. Currently i like the car but need some contrast in it, just too monochromatic for my taste.

This is an example i found, car color and caliper color are close to mine. this is not a photoshop.

dont like the banana calipers or the red or the lime green. Silver is good and I like the ZR1 blue.

I don't particularly like the lime green...but somehow it works better on the Lambo and not as well on the CTS-V. I have a silver couple with dark wheels and yellow calipers and it looks incredible. I constantly get comments on the wheel/caliper combo. IMO...go yellow or red....they will look sharp.

To each his own. The way you have your car set up, I think the green looks great - very distinctive! I have yellow calipers on my Crystal Red sedan. And I'm 71. So there!
