      I like to think that the CTS-V Sportwagon is Cadillac's middle finger to the other auto makers.

      Hmmm....

      Is it possible to Sawzall the rear off an E36 Touring and graft it, along with the doors onto an E36 4-door sedan? Dr.AK, are there any structural/trunk floor differences? I think you owned non-Touring E36s before.

      Thank you

      It used to look like this back when I bought it in 2009:






      In the summer of 2010 installed the M bumpers and skirts, dropped it on AP coils and threw on some OEM 8x18 ET20 and 9x18 ET22 Style 32s off a 7-series E38 wrapped in 215/35/18s.



      http://www.flickr.com/photos/bochman...7624024822213/


      Then I hit an animal, which effed up the front end with a cracked bumper and a bent nosepanel, then sold the wheels and in the following winter I slid into a sign post. Which gave me this and a cracked bumper:






      I've spent the last few months fixing it up again, fixing some rust issues, got some new wheels (BBS RF in 8.5x17 ET13 and 9.5x17 ET13 wrapped in 205/40 and 225/35 Falken FK452s), pulled the rear arches heavily and now it's only minor stuff left until the car goes into the paintshop. I did everything myself so far, only the paint will be done by a professional painter.

      You can follow my build over on Stanceworks.

      Hm...

      thinking about it, theoretically it should be possible. As far as I know the undercarriage is exactly the same, as I haven't noticed any differences between my previous sedan and my current Touring. The rear most part, where the hatch closes at is a bit different, I think. But the parts underneath the car are exactly the same.

      There might be some hidden chassis bracings in the sidewalls to give it a bit more stability, but I don't know for sure, but I doubt it.

      A good body worker should be able to do this, with a good sedan and a Touring shell.

      Would not hesitate if I had the money. Educating the local populace would cost me 4 or 5 sets of rear tires though.
