Yo Bobby, ever thought of using a mulching blade?


Back on topic...

The grille swap is very simple & shouldn't take ya more than 30 minutes or so. Like said above, it's a direct swap w/o any fabing. E-bay has them at decent prices, but make sure you're getting a genuine GM part, otherwise it will probably have gaps.

There isn't a lot for the CTS bumper wise. Unless its stock or a v, it will be some aftermarket piece of crap that will make it look like hell. There may be an ok one out there but it will prob cost a fortune! Keep an eye on the classifieds for the CTS & CTS-V and look for a V bumper. When you see one don't think about it or hum and haw, buy it ASAP or it will be GONE!!! You can also check local wrecking yards for for a V but those are like Pokaroo.....heard of but never seen!

Good luck.

Thank you! I was looking for a stock, I was not sure if i was able to have the v put on and look ok on my car. I am quite new to this finding Cadillac parts thing, much harder than I thought it would be!

I just recently bought a new grille and billet grille. The bumper I have now had a small crack which decided to spread. My mechanic said he found a primed bumper for 1000$ but I thought that was pretty outrageous

I think this thread has the better info =)

The V bumper looks great and bolts right up. You need to get the upper and lower grill for it. If you do a search you will see many topics on it with a how to I'm sure. If you find a bumper inquire about the side skirts too. Then ya have more of the V look.

Here is a link to a good discussion with lots of info and pics.

Are those the stock 18" wheels on that black CTS?
Yes. Those are the 18's that come with the sport appearance package.
