    rims for 04 cts?

    Stock V-series are a 6 lug bolt pattern. All V6 CTS's use a 5 lug pattern.

    Cadillac CTS Suspension Question

    The shocks are different in the Base and Sport version CTS. The Sport version is much stiffer and feels much more stable at high speeds. It uses a Nivomat self-leveling shock in the rear for load leveling too. From what I have read, there isn't a problem with lowering the car using the stock...

    anybody looking for a v-grill

    If it is the GM grill (not one of the aftermarket knock-offs), the emblem comes already on the grill. The V grill is the mesh grill.

    Here they are: Grille, upper: 21996486 (Wire Mesh Grill) Grille, lower: 25750638 (wire mesh grill; must install front fascia/bumper cover to fit) ...and the upper fits perfectly. To install the lower, you need to swap the front bumper cover and hardware for the V version...

    Supercharged 3.2L V6

    I would much rather have a V too. :D But upgrading the CTS I have is much cheaper than trading up at the moment (that and I want to see the STS-V before buying a new car).

    Supercharged 3.2L V6

    Now that your 320hp VVT Northstar is shared with the SRX and STS, I bet you will begin to see some more aftermarket interest. :)

    The Naked Edge Road Challenge 2005

    We need a CTS-V in there. Preferrably a Mallett. There is none greater. :D

    Five Hundred may spawn Town Car; Ford considering awd, V8 sedan

    Welcome to the dark side. The 2008 DeVille will be on the Sigma platform (meaning it will have RWD and AWD). Rumors even have it being based off the Sixteen concept.

    Venturi - Car Fetish

    It looks like a Bugatti Veyron. Except not as well designed. Or powerful. Or interesting.

    When 400hp just isn't enough... ;)

    Lingenfelter is talking about releasing a twin turbo system for the CTS-V. 600-700hp from the LS6? They say it fits under the hood and is undetectable from stock unless you're at WOT. Early pic:

    A few cool Mark VIII videos...

    I agree. Videos of the speedo prove nothing. Let's see track times. Also, what wheels were these running in addition to the gear swaps? It all effects the speedo and doesn't mean the car actually climbs that fast.

    American Muscle Car, Best Ever, Cars from 1964 to 1972

    Buick GNX? I thought this thread was about 60's to '70's muscle cars... If it's open to anything, I want to nominate the Cadillac CTS-V. With 400hp, I'd say it qualifies. :D
