I finally got my V Rockers back from paint so i threw them on today. along with my Shark Fin antena update
I cant say enough how i love the new look AAAND my radio signal IS BETTER!! no more static. So nice
Im not 100% satisfied with the color match of the rockers, unfortunately my car paint is a bit faded i guess. Oh well. Hopefully they will start to look closer in color.

Do you have a 2.8 or 3.6? Your avatar says 2.8, your car says 3.6.

If you look at post #33 you can download the very informative walk though and it shows all the part numbers. I got he antena base from an 09 STS and then the fin.

Yeah i used to have a 06 CTS, i/ll change my info now.
My car is the 08 3.6 DI

Looks great - is that an Ontario plate you have? If so, where did you get the wheels done?
