Question. Can the LED's be mounted on the outer end instead of the inner end?

the housing is pre-cut for the inner end. maybe when you order u can request them not to pre-cut so you can use a dremel to cut your own.

Well of course! Who wants to be a half-ass poser. I will also be doing the lambo doors, bimmer halos, and old school saab amber side markers. Please send me more suggestions :D

Am I wrong? Did you retain the OEM CTS hood? The power bulge of the CTS-V hood is cool.
You can get a fiberglass version of the CTS-V hood for under $600. I did this whole conversion
one my first generation CTS. I just bought a new CTS Sport Wagon and hope to do this
conversion again.

About 1500 including paint but thats with discounted/used parts. The only part I paid full price were the led fogs

OK, great! How about neon under rockers? Or, racing stripes? Big rear spoiler? LED valve steam caps? The options are endless...........:stirpot: :pop2:

Looks good!

The whole point is if you are going to dump money to look like a V, you might at well just purchase one.

It cost 20k more for a V. Maybe in your part of the world money grows on trees and unicorns roam the skies, but where I come from 20k is a hell of a lot of money.

I see no problem with his car at all. Even if he added everything "V" what's the big deal? Take a look at Barrett-Jackson and see how many posers run through. How many Eleanor Mustangs are out there, Dukes Chargers, Shelby Cobras, the list goes on and on, most are posers. What about hot rod Fords that run Chevy power, most do. If your an auto enthusiast the fun of owning a car is modifying it to your tastes. If that means making your car something different from what it started out as, that's what it's all about. He posted up under "appearance mods", does this mean any mod but using "V" parts? Don't think so. Enjoy your cars and keep those mods coming, after all we are driving one of the best looking cars GM has ever made IMHO.

Exactly! My previous car was a Lexus and they sold their performance F parts for non-F cars. I wish Cadillac would do the same.
