I am new here, and a new 2011 CTS V owner as well, mine is completely Stock 20k miles but but I plan on doing a lot of upgrades, performance, body, interior, the whole thing. I'm in the Dallas area and am looking for suggestions on shops for body work, performance work and also a pro audio place to completely redo the sound system.

Howdy! LOTs of Texas V owners in here. I'm in East Texas, about two hours from you. I also have a 2011 Coupe, clearly the best looking variant of all the Vs. We LOVE build threads! You'll have lots of reading to do as there is a huge wealth of information in the forum about all of the upgrades you mentioned. Check out the discussion around the "Grom V2" which is an iPad-like interface screen which could be a part of your audio system. Let us know what your horsepower goals are, what would you like to do with the car? Daily drive; Occasional 'Mexico' trip; Running down to Ennis to get time slips? Welcome!

20k miles? Nice. Hopefully they drove it enough for shock seals and fittings that need the movement.


Is that "Stealth Blue"?

I've read some members here have been happy with Twenty First Century Muscle cars in Addison.

But as stated above, Pat G is highly sought after for tuning, but he is in Victoria.

There is a likelihood that the shocks will be leaking. The one advantage of the high-mileage Vs such as mine is that the shocks seem to be LESS likely to leak if they’ve gotten regular exercise.

Welcome!.. I 2nd 21st CMC for performance work. They have been involved in 4 of my builds and Matt and the guys there do great work. Actually just picked up my car from them yesterday and lets just say it put up Unicorn numbers....definitely a freak of nature.

Not into the other mods, but I'm sure there are plenty of others here in DFW that can steer you in the right direction.

Patient much? I've heard nothing but amazing things about Corey Henderson at Henderson Performance. Never used them myself, but lots of good reports about him.

It was a day....on an active thread.

Regardless, thanks for the pointing to the guy. I'll pass it on to my friend.
