Talking Photos of my family car 4-door sedan.

I installed D3 lowering coil springs last night on my 2009 CTS-V, it was a little more difficult than my 2010 Camaro was. I'm happy to report that the ride quality didn't change at all! I was worried about that, since I like my Caddy to ride like a luxury car. Magnetic shocks still feel just like they did before in Sport Mode too. I'm very pleased with the results.

I removed the GM square chicklet emblems from the front fenders, and removed the CTS emblem from the trunk lid. Wheels are 20" HRE Monoblok P41 with a brushed surface, and smoke tinted clearcoat. Up next are the performance mods. Overdrive crank pulley, cold air intake, and a tune. That should make an easy 550+ rwhp and put this family car into the mid-11s at the dragstrip.

As they say, a photo is worth a thousand words. Here are a few thousand words.

Tony

Looks awesome. I have to say that that I realllyyyyyyyyyyy love the stock wheels on the V.....................but your choice looks really nice and gives it a unique look.

Edit - just checked HRE..........Saturn Sky? Ha!!! Nothing there.:(

Number 3, I also like the factory CTS-V wheels a lot. One of my favorite factory wheels of all time. But, I don't like keeping wheels that come from the factory very long. Wheels and stance are the two most important visual aspects of any vehicle. I adjust those accordingly
