you can see in the 2 picks basically everything i have done...
white eyelids,white fogs, white DRL's, and white trunk bezle with covered reverse lights but they still shine through the vynal.
other than that she is stock, i may do dual exhause off of the 3.6L sport but probably not from the V. and paint the brakes because the look horrible..
my TSW 18s will be going up for sale in the classified section here in the next couple days just trying to figure out if im selling with or without tires. my gf is lookin for 18s for her Jag X-Type and may take my tires and just buy rims.

i do like the white fogs and sidemarkers on the white diamond color...that is definitely a different look...you going to change the grille out? or paint that one to match or anything of such?

I was thinking 25% in the rear and 35% in the front. Or maybe 35% all around

I live in Michigan, 0 on the fronts, but I am hoping they leave me alone with 35 or if they have a 40% I will go with that.

I kinda like the grey grill as is, I've looked
At the v grill a lot but I'm not sure if it
Suits the white unless you do the v bumper, and
I've thought about painting mine or gettin the
Sports grill too, they are all nice but for the
Price I just don't see it as worth it to me because
I like this 1.
For tint I'm thinkin 25% all around, I've had 15
On my fronts and limo on the back of my sonoma
And 15 all around on my jimmy but I don't want
As dark on this car.
I really want to switch the bezle to the 04+
But mine the way I did it doesn't look bad.
Been thinkin bout custom plates too but hard
To choose what I am willing to pay $500 for to
The ministry lol

i agree with you on the price of some grille's. i have seen one white diamond CTS that had the sports grille on there and it looked pretty good. i definitely agree with you as for the V grille on a white diamond CTS, but i also think if you have some wheels that can mix well with the V grille you could pull it off...

oh no!!! how bad is it? snag me your bezle fom the bodyshop and get a new 1 from insurance ...im sure it is scratched......:)
sorry to hear about that...just stay away from Unique at eglington and dundass...they mangled my truck more than the accident did.. but if there is ever a nuclear war i can hide in my truck, the 15 layers of paint they laid on it will protect me lol...

what tint do you have on yours? did you have stock rims?

i was lookin for chrome rims but came across a good deal on these and in bran new condition with bran new tires. so i tried them on and they look great!!! (well at least i think so)
ive been gettin a lot of flack from my frineds and my gf because i have always had 20z and just when i get a caddy i bought 18z... well now i have 20s so they can shut up...ya all them and all their stock cars, some with hubcaps...ya you know who you are LOL...wait non of them are on this forum..hahah.

the rear bumper is f****ed.....funny thing the bezel looks mint but ill see what i can do, my tint was suppose to be 20% but everyone says its way to dark so they must of made a mistake and placed 15% or lower. Its been two years and it still looks extremely dark:thepan:. Anyhow, i was looking forward to work on my headlights using 3M sending paper but will have to wait now.

I hope you used brake or BBQ grill paint or it'll just burn off. G2 makes a nice kit. 2-part paint that you mix then apply. Does a great job!
