Just picked this baby up last night! 2004, 46k, not a mark on her!




















Looking forward to learning everything I can about this car as I did with my previous two Cadillac's, 95 and a 01 STS. Thought about leaving Cadillac after throwing thousands into my 2001, but I just couldn't do it. :worship:

I don't understand why you guys can't see the pics, cause I can. I used the insert image link and used the URL for the pictures that are in my album here on this site. I'll see what I can do, or do differently that is.

I really wish there was a face that rolled it's eyes. Cus I'll be putting that on here at the guy who always say "Ahhh Pearl White Diamond, the FASTEST color."

Nevertheless, very nice. Looks like the previous owner added an aftermarket spoiler. Was a good job done, does the paint match perfectly?

That is not an aftermarket spoiler, that is straight from Cadillac from the factory.:bigroll:

that's not a factory spoiler, the factory spoiler was the "arrow" spoiler from the 'wheel sport appearance package'
this is what it looks like http://www.cardata.com/spoilers/images/DAR_Spoilers/2007_Cadillac_CTS_rear_spoiler.jpg

your spoiler is still a good spoiler, dont get us wrong on that.
If I came across as mocking the spoiler, it wasn't my intentions. Sorry about that.

But Andrew is right. The factory spoiler sat directly on top of the middle mount/3rd brake light. Your's as well as mine, sits a few inches above the brake light. Besides, it appears you have 16 or 17 inch wheels. And a regular grill. The factory install spoiler came with 18inch wheels and a 3 louvre grill where the louvres were more flat, which had a metal mesh behind it. Better than the v-grill if you ask me. And the chrome strip on the hood was body match in color.

Either way, for an 04 she looks great. It must be a southern baby huh?

The pearl paint definitely makes it faster :cool2:
there is a big argument that has been going on about white diamond CTS's being the fastest...and they are
Welcome!

it is the fastest, thats why i make the White Diamond Power Block Mini and gave up on the carbon fiber.
its been tested and works.

She has actually been in MN her entire life, the previous owner was 72, first owner was his close friend. It has 17" wheels, with both the sport and luxury packages. Only option it doesn't have is navigation as far as I can tell. First thing to go is the grill, I want a V-style grill. Then a new exhaust setup and window tint. Eventually I might put some 18" wheels on her but that's about it I think, keep it clean, keep it simple. So far my only gripe about the car is the lack of reading lights in the rear for passengers. How hard would it have been to make that light a 2-way push button just like the front one? Just got a 10"+ snow storm today and I have to say with the addition of 160 pounds of salt in the trunk she gets around pretty good. Would be an entirely different story if it wasn't for traction control....
