Tail lights and reflectors tinted, and Corsa/ Kooks Exhaust. Front grill was also painted a gloss black leaving the caddy badge alone so it would pop out. All work was done by Autowerks. (GM badges removed on both sides).

2010 Bentley Continental vs Cadillac CTS-V
( http://www.TFLcar.com ) The 2010 Bentley Continental Suspersports will
set you back $286.845 and it is the most powerful car that Bentley has ever
built with a Twin turbo W-12 6.0L engine
that produces 621 HP. The 2010 Cadillac CTS-V is a mere $ 68,445 and is the
fastest production four door sedan on the market today with a supercharged
V8 from the Corvette ZR-1 that produces 556 HP. Perhaps just as importantly
the two premium luxury sports cars best demonstrate the difference of
flying business vs. flying first class. So what exactly does $200,000 more
The 750 hp D3 Cadillac CTS-V -- /TUNED
The CTS-V is one of the most tunable sedans money can buy, thanks to its
Corvette-derived drivetrain and robust running gear. Its also quite
practical as a daily driver. We visit well known tuner D3 to see how the
CTS-V takes to their modifications.
CTS-V Exhaust Comparisons
Decided to do an Exhaust comparison
since several V's showed up to the car show this morning and everybody had
something a little different.
As it says in the video, all of the V's shown have several mods but only
the mods that can change the Exhaust
note are mentioned. Hopefully this will help some of you who have searched
1,000 videos on YouTube (like I did) looking for the right sounding Exhaust.
All owners report that there is ZERO drone with all of the systems shown
2009 CTS-V stock exhaust vs. Corsa axleback exhaust
I strongly advise using earphones for this video for best audio output.
I compare the stock mufflers with the Corsa axleback Exhaust in my 2009 CTS-V (automatic) at
Revs at rest
Acceleration on the freeway
Ambient noise at freeway speed
The primary changes with the Corsa are loss of drone at low rpms, and
louder, deeper Exhaust tone at WOT.
SVT Cobra's and a CTS-V Playing on the Highway
If you've seen some earlier videos then a three of these cars will look
familiar. Needless to say they all sound sick and there is nothing better
than 4 sick cars playing on the highway. The black Cobra is probably the
loudest in this group.

Cadillac CTS-V Exhaust Comparison: Magnaflow VS. Magnaflow and Kooks Headers
Before and After Video of Magnaflow Catback Exhaust with and without Kooks 1 3/4" headers
and high flow cats on a CTS-V. Car is louder overall, as well as deeper and
raspier with the headers on. V also has K&N CAI and various other mods not
relevant to the Exhaust note.
NOTES: Car in backround is 2003 Terminator Cobra. Car is smoking at
beginning of second video because the car was warmed up (it was cold out,
and didn't want to rev the engine cold).
