  1. Regarding our problem with peeling radio buttons...

    2004-2007 Cadillac CTS-V General Discussion
    Does anyone here have a spare navigation radio and/or access to tools for taking precise measurements? I've been thinking of talking to a vendor to produce a protective film to cover the front surface of each button face...something similar to the thin adhesive films available for cell phones...

    MY current 05 STS does not have a rear spolier. After seeing my exact car with one I want one. Does any one know if the aftermarket compaines are any good? I have seen painted to match spoilers for about 300 bucks. IM just worried about cheap paint peeling in a few years....

  6. Lemoned V on eBay...is this yours?

    2004-2007 Cadillac CTS-V Performance Mods
    I know we have several members who have had their V lemoned and bought back by GM. This one says it was bought back for an "incorrect fuel guage". Hmm...that just doesn't sound like a good reason to lemon a car. But, their knowledge of this car appears to be lacking in that it is advertised with...
  7. Just a thought...maybee a easy fix for the peeling radio buttons???

    2004-2007 Cadillac CTS-V General Discussion
    Well, I was thinking about it today and a rather simple idea popped into my head......what about clearcoat??? I mean, maybee not actual clearcoat, but something along the lines of it....even a dab of superglue spread evenly on the buttons would work, and if smooth enough would even give a little...

    Cadillac CTS First Generation Forum - 2003 - 2007
    I was scheduled for my analog to digital upgrade on Thursday of last week. Well on Tuesday the AC started blowing a little warmer, then suddenly stopped blowing cold all together.

  12. CTS V's seemed plagued by problems

    2004-2007 Cadillac CTS-V General Discussion
    I own a 2006 Corvette which has been absolutely flawless. My other two Corvettes have been great as well. I've been intrigued by the CTS-V and have been considering a new one until I've read some of the horror stories on this forum. For some owners it sounds like it has been a piece of junk...

    Cadillac Detailing and Bodywork - Interior and Ext
    What is the deal with the paint protection films that 3m makes. I have seen in some other forums people applying these to their cars for protection from chips and whatever. I am not familiar with these at all, but it does not sound to me that it can be that good for the paint. Maybe i am...
  15. Turbo, another quiet word - this time about brushed chrome rims

    Cadillac Detailing and Bodywork - Interior and Ext
    The one thing I absolutely HATE about the brushed chrome/aluminum whatever rims that my Cady has is the scratches and eventual peeling off of the clearcoat covering - looks like Hell when this happens. Is there anything I can do except take them off for refinishing, which never lasts more than...

  19. Bose Radio in V

    2004-2007 Cadillac CTS-V General Discussion
    Like many of you, I had to have the radio replaced because of peeling paint on the faceplate. What an idiotic design! Ever since, the radio does not seem to sound as good in any mode (CD. radio). I didn't notice it right away, but I remember the radio sounding amazing when the car was new. Are...
