  1. Composite vs. Sealed beam front end poll

    RWD 19xx-1984 DeVille and Fleetwood,1985-1996 Flee
    There's always comments on what is the more popular front end of our beloved '80's and early '90's Broughams/Devilles. Just for fun I'd like to see which is the most liked here on the forum.
  2. Lowering options

    Cadillac CTS First Generation Forum - 2003 - 2007
    Ok so i have been doing research and I have decided against cutting stock springs. I will instead be getting actual lowering springs. Any one have any suggestions? I want to lower the car down a bit and also get bigger rims but im worried about rubbing. If i got one of these kits what size...
  3. Another Bad Maggie Bearing.

    2004-2007 Cadillac CTS-V General Discussion
    Back in May my Maggie had a bad bearing at the rear of the jack shaft. I got it fixed by a local shop who put in ceramic bearings. I have put on about 3K Miles since then and the same bearing is bad again. Any ideas on what would be causing this bearing to go? Once i get this one replaced it...
  4. Dealership is less than helpful

    2004-2007 Cadillac CTS-V General Discussion
    I have an 06 V with a few mods, cat backs, ported input manifold and throttle body, and a Lingenfelter cold air intake. Had a performance tune a couple of years ago and everything worked great for a couple of years until I cleaned and reoiled the air filter. I started getting the dreaded...

    Ok, So here goes. My wife drives our '06 CTS 3.6l, we bought it new in Aug '06. The car has 68k miles on it and I maintain it meticulously, i.e. new oil every 6k(of course Mobil 1), air filters, etc. In June of this year she was driving to work, highway, and she feels the car buck and the...
  6. Easy Question: Volant Intake on an 07'

    2004-2007 Cadillac CTS-V Performance Mods
    Is it possible? I don't see a Volant intake listed anywhere specifically for the 06-07 model years, which leads me to believe that the 04-05 version will not be a direct bolt-on because of the different throttle body sizes. Can anyone lend some insight on that? Also, does anyone know if there...

    RWD 19xx-1984 DeVille and Fleetwood,1985-1996 Flee

  8. Cadillac 425 Performance Question

    500, 472, 425, 368
    Hi all, So I acquired a 9k original mile 1978 Eldo Biarritz Custom Classic last year and finally got around to tinkering with it. When I bought the car it was a complete dog. If I floored it, I couldn't feel any difference at all. This was even after I changed the plugs/wires/dist cap/rotor...
  9. V-Series Performance Academy or V-Series Performance Lab?

    2009-2015 Cadillac CTS-V Performance Mods
    Because the V-Series Performance Academy on my chosen date is full, Cadillac is offering to allow me to attend the V-Series Performance Lab on the next day. Does anybody know what the difference is between the "Academy" and the "Lab"? The webpages look identical...
  10. I think I know how you HT4100 owners feel.

  12. Light Tinting Q's

    2004-2007 Cadillac CTS-V Appearance Mods
    Seems like info for doing this stuff is pretty scattered, and I'm interested in getting some feedback from those who have done their own. Specifically had questions on a couple things. The crest emblem on the 3rd brake light. I've heard of people just taping it off and others completely...
  13. FINALLY! -- 4 U 'Roo

    Informal Lounge, Introductions, General Discussion
    At long last, I have both RMWs out of the shop at the same time, and side-by-side so I can get some pics. (Along w/some of ETC before getting the DCM out of storage...) Once in a while, EXT pokes its head out of the garage... I prefer the ETC ass end out: Loving the tint: Found a...

  15. Okay what can I do? (Peeling Dash/CD Player Area)

    Cadillac CTS First Generation Forum - 2003 - 2007
    The peeling of the black coating has gotten worse and it is now flaking off. There are random spots all in the area surrounding the DIC, CD player etc. I have an 05 CTS so no more warranty. can I do? Is there anywhere online to purchase new faceplates for the center console area or what? I dont...
  16. Interior Color Choice?

    2009-2015 Cadillac CTS-V Appearance Mods
    Personally my first choice is sand/beige, but that's not available with the Recaro. I am never a fan of gery interior but it sure does look nice in the pictures here. I think it goes very well together with the headliner to give a nice...

    2009-2015 Cadillac CTS-V Appearance Mods
    I had recently decided to get the coupe, but after seeing some photos recently of the sedan in diamond white I think i have decided to purchase the sedan instead. I'm looking for people to post pics of their white cts-v sedan with tint, just to get an idea of what it would look like. Any...

    Cadillac DeVille 1985 to 2005 including:1985-1992
    Yeah, I know it's going to make a lot of you wanna PUKE. :vomit: All of the replacement pieces are near done. I wanted something different, so I went to the junk yard and snagged some Fleetwood pieces. Couldn't afford the door panels upholstery redo, so I just modified some Deville parts...

  20. $200 later.

    RWD 19xx-1984 DeVille and Fleetwood,1985-1996 Flee
    Yeah, so $220 olater with my belts and whatnot and that damned squeek better be gone or I literally will beat someone into a coma. Anyhow, my A/C cannot be rebuilt, as for the price they will charge I could literally purchase a new engine And transmission and be done with it. Anyhow, that was...
