    2009-2015 Cadillac CTS-V Performance Mods
    I am currently driving a Thunder Gray Chromaflair 2010 CTS-V with stock painted wheels. I have been considering going to an aftermarket 20" Asanti wheel - model AF 146. Does anyone have any input on the quality or reliability of the Asanti products? What Size wheels would you recommend...
  2. Catastrophic maggie failure

    2004-2007 Cadillac CTS-V General Discussion
    Well, low and behold. A day after I was bragging about how well the car was running... Driving in stop and go traffic, I hear a click then a progressively loud thud thud. So loud I'm thinking to myself it's a loose rod, maybe a lifter went. Manage to get the car home. Oddly the thump/thud is...
  3. An old dog found his way home.

    RWD 19xx-1984 DeVille and Fleetwood,1985-1996 Flee
    I bought back the first car I was handed down, when I turned 16. My dad bought the car around 1997, when a local gas station that sold cars, was selling the land. They auctioned off all of the cars, and my dad was the only one to bid on this 1983 DeVille. He just bid on it for fun, and...
  4. Burned Out on Exhaust Research

    2004-2007 Cadillac CTS-V Performance Mods
    I really need an exhaust upgrade and I've spent weeks watching every video on youtube, myspace, facebook, and streetfire at least a dozen times. I've changed my mind between stainless works, magnaflow, b&b, and corsa at least a dozen times also. I think I narrowed it down to the B&B. I need...

  11. Kooks Headers Installed-Selling custom 3" cat-back

    2009-2015 Cadillac CTS-V Performance Mods
    I had the Kooks headers installed today at Behe Performance. I went back to the stock mufflers because I was afraid they would be too loud. To be honest...I am kind of disappointed in the sound compared to my 3" custom cat-back. The only good thing is that there isn't any drone in the car. But...
  12. Broken manifold bolts on 6.0l

    Cadillac Escalade, EXT and ESV Forum - 1999 - 2006
    A brief look at other GM user groups indicates that the "broken manifold bolts problem" is a potential problem with any GM 6.0l engines. The situation with the 6.2l , etc. is not clear, but if they use the same materials and setup it could become a problem. Cadillac offered no help and has...

  15. Adding insult to injury: Motor Trend picks M3 & RS5 over V Coupe

    2009-2015 Cadillac CTS-V General Discussion
    I'm sure this was mentioned in the other thread, I thought I'd mention it for those not keeping up with that thread. I don't see the article on line yet, but just got the hard copy in the mail. Main knock on the V is the crappy auto trans. V out accelerates and brakes the others. But, came in...
  16. Alignment - drill out the strut towers

    Cadillac DeVille 1985 to 2005 including:1985-1992
    today I went for a 4 wheel alignment and they said the adjust the caster on the front, they must drill the rivets out of the strut tower. They said it would take several hours labor. I passed. So I ended up with a $75 toe alignment because the camber was fine. What's up with the caster...

    Saw in the 2010 CTS Dealer brochure the WIFI was available? First I had heard of this unless I am just oblivious as I was to the no-lift shift.
