I've owned my CTS-V for about 3 weeks now, and the things I "hate" the most are, the back-end and the engine cover.



1. I like the black piece on the rear bumper of the STS, M5 ect... So I went to graphics shop and had them cut me a pattern for the rear. I painted the inside with plastic bumper paint, now it looks much better.



2. The stock engine cover belongs underneath a rental-car. It does not compliment the LS6 beneath it..... I found a new Z06 fuel rail-cover for under $100 on eBay :D , did some trimming, now it fits like a glove. :thumbsup:



Here are the pictures, enjoy guys/girls.

You wanna spruce up the rear end? Get yourself a nice stainless exhaust!

:highfive: That's neat, would look good on red too.

Covers look better with a maggie nestled ever so gently between them..:thumbsup:

I'm not getting a meggie on the CTS-V, the Supra is my "money pit", beside this is my daily driver.

I like it. Makes the rear end look lean and high.

I like it, it looks like a rear diffuser. I was actually thinking about doing that exact same thing for my CTS (non-v). I may try to give it a carbon fiber look. Is yours a flat black? Or is it standard bumper paint?
