Nice:thumbsup: I can't wait to receive mines next week.
I wonder how hard it is to install the drilled rotors...I plan on doing it myself.

I knew the boot would get mixed reviews. My interior is tan and my floor mats are black so it ties everything together nicely. Hard to convey with just a small picture. Not for everyone but great for me. :)

Looks great Chris!

I really don't like chrome spoked wheels. They make the wheels look smaller than they are.

Looks sharp though!

looks good, but i think the regular cts v wheels look better, something about the overall shape of the other wheels i really like.

CVP33:

Whew! Took a load off my mind considering we will have the same set up (rotors and wheels). Looks great and it got approval from the wife - guess I should tell her the rotors and wheels are on the way (it is always easier to ask for forgiveness than permission). I also like the boot. When I was looking at V's out here in Calif., all of the platimums had ebony interior (which is what I ended up with) and I think the boot kind of ties everything together on your car.

Now I can't wait for my stuff!

Thanks,
Marty

Could be just us or lighting, but both my wife and I thought these wheels looked larger and better in comparison to the stockers. :hmm: Any who, I love 'em.

Cool pics, thanks for posting them. I happen to like the boot and have been thinking about doing the same thing in my car. I have the gray interior with black floor mats and have been thinking about getting a two tone boot to help tie things together. (leather samples are on the way just to make sure everything matches) Now that I've seen how it looks in your car I'll definately be going ahead with that. Like you said, not for everyone, but I like it, and I appreciate you posting and removing any doubts I had about doing it.

It's not hard at all... Remove the wheels, loosen the caliper mounting bolts, remove the torx bolt holding rotors to the hub, remove old rotors, reverse for installation...

I thought the same thing until I saw it installed. Pictures don't do it justice. It really does tie the interior colors together.
Various comments about the looks of the wheels
I love the stock "V" rims and I didn't think I would like these wheels. After seeing them mounted, again, pictures just don't do them justice. You have to see them in person.
