Yesterday I had one year since I bought this car - 2011 CTS-V, sedan, black raven, Recaro seats, 6MT, no sunroof, no mods. No issues whatsoever, replaced the tires with all seasons and all the 194 bulbs with LED and that is about it. I love my ZR1 badges because I am the only one in Calgary with the badges. I bought it at 3k miles (5k km) and it is now at 9k miles (14k km). This one is one of the V-Lab cars, no warranty. Mine is #11, see below (I received 29 more pictures). Last month I bought my own Amsoil synthetic oil/filter for $100 and paid the dealer $25 to do it. I felt bad so I bought a Cadillac hat just to give them some money ($45 in total).

What's the deal with the ZR1 badges?

I have no idea, I think the dealer from Arizona installed them, the previous owner said they were on when he bought the car and in the pictures they are missing.

Maybe if you actually had an LS9 engine swap and carbon ceramic brakes the ZR1 badge would be legit; otherwise it adds a whiff of poseur. JMHO.
