Here are some iPhone pics until I get some really good high resolution pictures posted of my new 2011 Black Diamond CTS-V Coupe.

Pictures don't do it justice! It looks amazing in person! This car is one attention getting machine! That's all I can say! Thanks again to James Quinn at Les Stanford Cadillac in Dearborn, MI. Without his dedicated hard work, I would not be driving this badass car. He was able to make it happen. I don't know how he did it! This color was unavailable and from my understanding is still on constraint.

Looks nice. What do you think of the paint? Was it what you expected or better? Bet it looks cool at night under street lights.

D307P,

I love the way the paint looks! The car looks like it was custom done. It doesn't look like a factory setup at all. It looks WAY better than I expected it. I haven't seen it under street lights as of yet. The paint really pops in the sun. In the shade, it looks like charcoal gray. In the dark, it looks like a black car.

shade,

The pics I took were at the clear bra place. I had the clear bra done today with the car just under 100 miles.

I love the car more than any other car I have ever had. It is an amazing looking car!

e6t,

I hear ya! I don't plan on crashing it, but you never know.

How much of it are you getting covered with the clear bra? What's it running you if you don't mind me asking. I haven't looked into it yet...

Beautiful color by the way! Love it!!!

thatcoder,

Yes, I did a 24 month lease term. After awhile, rock chips make the front end look terrible and if I decide to purchase the car at the end of the lease term, the front end will be in perfect condition.

RafCon,

I had the front bumper, front quarter panels, headlamps, mirrors and partial hood done. Basically anywhere a rock would contact the front end is now covered. It ran me $685.00 installed out the door.

Thanks guys for the kind words! I love the car!!!

With the clear bra, do you have to do anything different when waxing or claying the car? Would clay or wax damage the bra or yellow it?

Waxing and claying should be fine.....it worked on on my vette.....waxing will only protect it further
I had the clear bra on my 2010 CTS-V Sedan and it protected the front end more than I can tell you! It is well worth the investment. You can wax it, but you just have to make sure to get all the wax off before it dries and turns white. Once it turns white, it is tough to get off. I just gotta tell my detailer to make sure he doesn't wax the start of the clear bra so the lines don't turn white. Right now the clear bra is 100% invisible. You can't tell that it's even there.
