Casually driving on the 5 south and I see an orange cts with some wide wheels. I'm like typical.... Passed it, looked over to switch my lanes and I see a FULL ctsv front end. I quickly slow down and get a better look. I went behind it noticed that the rear diffuser/exhaust isn't the same, pulled up next to it and saw non- brembo brakes. Pulled ahead and saw cts v:hood, grilles, bumper, lights, I'm like wtf did this guy do. The orange looked kinda good IMO. But this guy took one of my favorite cars and ruined it, ONLY thing I'll admit that was nice was the color. I'll post some pictures onto my photobucket and post soon.
Anyways wondering how much did this guy pay for the conversion? And is the paint from GM??

Nothing wrong with swapping the stock bumper with a cts-v bumper. I have mine sitting in my garage waiting for a couple of parts to install it. I picked up an used bumper from ebay for 320, same color as my wagon.
