    MODS to your new XTS

    Hi, I am just about to take delivery of my new Crystal Red Premium and am thinking of having the polished wheels chrome plated, getting the windows tinted, and
    maybe do a aftermarket grill by E.&G.
    Have any of you out there done anything to your new pride and joy?

    Yeah.. Guess that comes from someone that's like to be the same as everyone else.. Mine I want different .. Ha ha. I think it's so funny how you seem offended.. I love it.. The thread was what have you done to you're car .. Why post a pic of a stock car you took a picture of at the dealer... We all know what the wheels look like you clown... Ha ha "UGH" You sound like my 10 year old daughter.

    The wheels are much too busy for a luxury car.

    I think I would like to see a little more sidewall. And a someone who has the 14 spoke 17s on his Cts
    And csl reps on his gto I will never do a wheel with more than 7 spokes again. Too hard to clean.

    I like those wheels, but then again, gentleman and ladies, opinions are like hineyholes, everyone has one. No need to disparage anyone's concept of beauty.

    I am 34 and have always customized my cars.. It's my style I think most of it is just difference in age and taste.. If I were in my 40s I don't know that I would do this but I'm young and enjoy it.. I don't think that everyone should like my style I was just putting it out there I don't like the e@g grill or chrome pillar trim but doesn't mean someone else doesn't.. I've had many compliments on the car as well from the dealer.. By the way bought sets of them for a couple of their cars in different finishes.. Sold imedietly.. But that may speak to the part of the country I'm in.. We like this stuff here

    This thread is not about judging others likes and dislikes. Were all individuals and some of us like things a little different than others.
    If you have made some changes and care to share it, do so and post some pics.
    If you haven't done anything, don't bother posting negatives.

    I've looked into it.. Just kind of gun shy to do too much to it due to this being my second xts having issues with the first.. I don't want to have anything the dealer can say caused any issue.. I have DVD headrest for it I haven't even put in yet.. Just nervous .. But to answer the question I would like to and it wouldn't be a big task because you just adjust the length of the ride height rods.. I think it would improve the look to do it but again just a little hesitant.. And thanks for the POSITIVE words
