hey guys,ive always loved working on cars. I finally turned 16 and now i own a Cadillac cts! :D its a 2004 v6 3.6l with 50k mileage in all black.All the parts are in stock and i want to trick this thing out before school starts. :cookoo: i want to make it look something like this.. :2thumbs:




now here the questions...
1. where can i find these tinted headlights? they dont seem to be anywhere?
2. where can i find this body kit? ive only seen the saronas and the vip racing style ones.
3. im interested in getting an air intake for less the $250...
4.I need some new rims. im thinking of getting something in aluminum with black.sizes 17-20. but i dont know what the tire sizes would be...
5. i need a nice looking stainless steel exhaust tip. i will need one for each side. i would go to the local store and get some,but the problem with it is that the exhaust tips are facing down. Idk if i should just cut them and just get straight ones?

1. tint your headlights yourself
2. i dont think thats is really much a body kit, more so a V front end and maybe side skirts
3. new intake for less than 250? make one or do Gaetano's and Mike's stock air box mod. unless used, you will have trouble finding a Volant or K&N for that price
4. the stock rims are aluminum, the rim offset for out cars is 38-42
5. for exhaust tips, best thing to do imo is get a full CTS-V exhaust which has really nice tips already, or get the E&G Classics tips

you may also want to look into doing the clear fog/drl mod (gets ride of the orange drl light), costs about $20 and is pretty easy to do.
you can also get clear or smoke side markers on ebay


that car pictured also has a new hood, i want to say its from Specter Werks but im not sure, ive only ever seen their modded Corvettes, it just looks like there stuff

hahaha, yeah im im willing to spend big bucks on my CTS. I live in Illinois.. money isnt much of a problem here. :bouncy:

wayyyy to confusing,especially this early in the morning... please make a more unique username.......
http://www.cadillacforums.com/forums/cadillac-cts-first-generation-forum-2003/206148-present-you-3-2l-guys.html

do what andrew said, and btw there is a rule against putting aftermarket rims on the CTS that are not 20". i dont know who makes these rules but who am i to go against them....those who have bought 18 or 17 always here " that would look better in a 20"
yeah i thought about last night.. im planning only going up to 18. but i dont know whether i should get 17s or 18s. And thanks.. ill change the my username for you guys.. it seems to create a confusion :)

Don't think a 16 year old can afford these without some serious saving lol. Or some loaded parents.

Technical I'm not the first either, I think it says it in the post lol. I'm not trying to be mean, I'm just saying their not a cheap alternative to a full body kit. I think their worst as far a cost.

Sorry if I did make you mad Cads4life
