My friend picked up a 03 CTS and I fell in love with it. It made my Tahoe and Civic feel like a complete POS. Im going to try to find a 04 Black on Black. Im going to get it Certified too. It was either going to be this or a Infinit FX35.

I was wondering has anyone put wider rims on the back only. I want to see how wide rims in the back look. Anyone have any pics?

Plans are:
TINT
Sound System
Rims
Motor Mods I/H/E
Suspension Shocks and Springs and maybe Rollbars

welcome to the forums. oh god you arent gonna rice it out are you? no wings or we will be forced to kill you. ha, well congrats on finding Cadillac and i hope you get your dream cruiser soon. yes tahoes and civics are pos'. there arent very many, if any, engine mods for 2.8s and 3.6s (whichever you get) cai and exhausts are about it. Cadillac motorsports is supposed to be coming out with some headers.

Oh No my civic was not riced out at all. I had mine turbocharged with stock rims no wing or any of that bs. 14 PSI and about 308HP and im embarrased about the tq numbers :( . My tahoe will be my family car I cant get rid of it and its just an 03 so no use in getting rid of it . Its a okay car except on windy days it feels like its going to tip over on the freeway. Yeah Im just planning on getting I/H/Exhaust for my CTS. I really want staggered wheels on my car and im talking about huge wide rims on the back and not so deep in the front. We went cruising to the local spots in my friends CTS and confidence wise I felt like a pimp. I never get that in my POS civic.

ok your cool. whew, dodged a bullet there. 03 Tahoes are nice, i work with some people that have them but at the end of the day i still got braggin rights to a Cadillac. if you want to feel like a pimp Cadillac is the way to go but you should jump into a Deville or a Fleetwood or something. those are pimp rides, these are whips, you a hustla in one of these as my friends would say. now you wanna talk hp, get a 94-96 Fleetwood Brougham with the tow package and do an LT4 conversion and you are looking at 425 hp and i dont know how much torque... yeah more hp than a V (didnt say faster though but i dont know). good luck bud!

Welcome aboard. I was an import racer type too til I stepped into my CTS, even though I'm still one at heart. There's a lot of good info on this board, but don't let the import comments get you down. Turbo Civics are no cracker jack toys by any means. My good buddy had an old stripper Civic on a turbo d16 that was kicking out around 400hp at the crank for about a third of the cost of our CTS'; it's just a different world that will never really understand each other. But welcome anyway.
