My poor V has spent more time at the dealership than in my possesion, lol.

I bought it the end of May but in mid July hit a tire chock on the freeway in the middle of the night. Destroyed almost all the intercoolers, the radiators, supports the CF splitter, so many things from such a minor incident. It started leaking immediately so pulled off & had it towed to the dealership that night.







Finally after 40 days and $9k got it back from the dealer, they also took care of some service/warranty work. The headlights needed to be replaced due to being foggy, the Heads Up display was blurry so that was replaced and the CF hood vent had some clear coat peeling so they replaced that as well.

First thing i did was go pick up my new wheel from my buddy Cannan (AKA Dinmann). I knew when i had my V Sport that the wheel on these cars is just too weak, no flat bottom even the Camaro/Vet has a better upgraded wheel. So I ordered this wheel after buying the car in June and couldn't wait to get it on. I think it's a must upgrade for a $100k - 600+ horsepower luxury vehicle. These pictures really don't do the wheel justice.

















My buddy makes these custom, they all are one off.

That sucks about the wheel chock. Talk about a rude surprise, a dark chunk like that on a road at night would be hard to even see, let alone have time to avoid it!

Wow, that thing is gorgeous! Did you have to provide a wheel for him to build off of? I would think he would need all of the "guts" of the wheel to build the CF and leather/suede around the existing framework.

Freaking gorgeous! :cool2:
Do you know if your buddy would be interested in doing steering wheels from 08-09, if so what would be a ball park number I'd be looking at for each wheel?

yea i hardly log in here since switching from the 2014 CTS V Sport to the 2016 CTS V.

To answer your question, IDK. your best bet would be to contact him directly.
