    Not my cup of tea, but they aren't as bad as I thought they'd be when I clicked here.

    If I did add a kit, it would be the D3 kit. I like both but i like the D3 better. Thanks for the comment.

    I think the rims appeal more to younger people. Everybody that I have spoken to say they like the rims except for the two posts above.

    Please repaint them and try again.
    May I suggest full black?

    To each their own.

    Hello,

    Thanks,

    Thanks,
    Is lowering the car going to void my warrenty somehow? Or is it ok? Should I have a GM dealer do it? Or is it something me and my a friend who happens to be a good mechanic but specializes if mercedes and beemers could do. BTW D3, what do they go for and how much do they drop.

    Re: New Colormatched Rims! Watcha Think?

    Hello,
    No, lowering your vehicle will not void your warranty. As a matter of fact we have been working with various Cadillac dealerships and lowering their vehicles as an option. You can certainly try to have your Cadillac dealer install the springs. However there are a few old school Cadillac dealerships out there that frown upon modifying Cadillacs. MSRP on the springs are $375 plus shipping and they are listed as a 2" drop. In reality they only lower the car about an 1"-1.5". Install can be done by anyone mechanically inclined and should only take a few hours to complete. Please let us know if you have any questions.
    Thank you,
