    Hi All,

    I just bought a 2006 CTS V and I joined here looking for some good advice on worthwhile mods and upgrades. I'm a car guy and enjoy customizing and improving my cars.

    This is definitely a fun car, and a very nice step up from my 04 GMC Sierra that I sold to buy this. It was pretty nice, but the V is great!

    So far, the mods I have in mind are a short shifter, maybe some 19" wheels, 160 deg. thermostat, modular intake tube, new mounts/bushings, and possibly headers/exhaust.

    I'll try to post a picture of the car after I get it uploaded to photobucket.

    Tim
