    2004-2007 Cadillac CTS-V General Discussion
    Can they fix curbage cracks on the front bumper fascia? Thin and maybe 2-3 inches long, and if so how much? I know a lot of front bumper covers just get tossed if they get cracked. What about license plate holes? Can they do this on the car? How much is a new fascia? What is the R & R like...

    I found a small burn mark on the passenger seat today most likely the result of a dumbass friend. The burn is on the seat itself on the suede. It isnt very deep but you can still see the black circle. Anyone have any ideas on how I can repair this?

    2004-2007 Cadillac CTS-V General Discussion
    I have curb rash on all 4 wheels, some minor, some pretty bad. I hate looking at them. Spoke with a franchise owner of a wheel repair service here in CT and he said it is $120 per wheel to fix. That seems kind of pricey. Does anyone know of a cheaper service? I lease the car so I do not want to...

I have heard there are companies that will come to your driveway to do this. Has anyone had any success...
