Well guys I put up my car for sale on Auto Trader you might think I am crazy but hey I will get over it. I have spent well over 10k in mods on my cts. I have about 6k in sounds but when I sell it I will get a CTS-V I put it up for 32k which I know it is more than what you can get a 3.6l CTS for but I went all out on my car and ran out of thing to do to it which is the reason why I am selling it. here are pictures. It only cost about $500 to ship it anywhere in the U.S

This is what I have on my CTs. 100K 7 year Warranty, Performance I will start from the engine out I have Headers with High flow cat and after that I have a Magnaflow X pipe then I replace the resonator with a Magnaflow dual in dual out muffelr then the Corsa Exhaust. I replace the stock sparkplugs with some Denso Iridium spark plugs.eibach Lowering Springs and Eibach Anti Roll Kit. I replace the front end with a CTS-V front end the windows are tinted limo tint all around. I have the Avic-N1 GPS system with 3 JlAudio Amps the first amp is a 300/2 which powers my front speakers which are Boston acoustic Pro60's components and the second amp is another JlAudio 300/2 which powers the rear Pro60 components then I have a JlAudio 500/1 which powers the 2 x 12" Jlaudio 12w3's in a jlAudio Box and I also have some 7" Alpine monitors in the headrest. I have a Cobra Radar Detecot hardwired right next to the rear view mirror. For wheels I have staggered Dvicni Tuscani wheels, tires Nitto 20x8.5 in the front with Nitto 245-35-20 tires and in the rear I have 20x10 with some 275/30/20 nittos tires in the back.

there's an 04 black V on ebay for 32K with under 20K mile (i think) that is tempting as fuk! if i knew the resale on them was going to drop that much, i may have just waited a year and gotten a used V.

any concerns over the rear diff going out on the V (if you get one)??

A lot of concerns your rear diff going out on a V is basically guaranteed if I get one I will reinforce the diff to make sure mine doesnt go out and if you know how I work I will max out the V in performance and looks.

are you still sponsored if you go with the V ??
Ofcoarse I had this CTS for 7 months and I maxed it out without counting a super charger so I will do the same with the V. Cadillac Motor Sports knows I always go all out.

Wow, after all that work that you did. Your car was so sharp! Listen to me, I'm talking like it already gone. I hope you change your mind. I would have a hard time giving mine up. Let us know about any nibbles you get. I guess the idea of the 3 piece rims is gone also?

I'd just wait until the new V comes out, SD.
And you didn't do everything to the car you can. Start coming up with your own stuff to do. Like modding all the lights, custom engine work, etc...

That V is gonna be nice. Shitty for you tho, SD, you won't get to use your typical style rims.

Hey Marine, how about working on an STS? You could even start with the V8 Norstar, lot more performance/options. Also a nicer interior, etc.???

I think I came up with my own stuff to do. I was the first person not only in the forum but I think almost anywhere to change the plugs on the CTS. I was the first person to add the headers and cats in this forum (I know 1 person said they did it also but they didn't have pictures they just said it and dissapeared from the forum). I am 1 of the few not the first but the few that put the V front bumper on. I think I am the only one that started messing with the exhaust and ended up with a custom corsa/magnaflow exhaust. I swapped my headlights for HID's which not too many people have done. My sound system is all custom I think I have the best mids and highs you can get and rewired the whole car with 12 guage speaker wire. I think I am the first one on this forum to put an after market head unit (Pioneer Aic-n1) I know what your saying I didn max it out Lund maxed his out getting to over 1000 HP but I am talking not doing anything really major like a super charger or porting out the engine.

I was about to say a guy like you should be working on a V instead of a regular; good luck on the sale. As long as you come back to visit us every now and then.

If he gets a V, its just like he's moving out, but right next door!

....and you got a witness!!! Can't believe you are selling it thought....:ill: Hope the buyer is not in Cali, cause your CTS was the "King of Cali", now maybe us mere mortals can get some looks now...:cool2:
