    Not exactly. I usually use either "Chosen1" or "AngryHog" as my online names. I got into the habit years ago of adding the ™ to the end of either one. I'll stop.

    Re: Just purchased a 06 CTS-V, new to the forums...

    I've had the CTS-V for about 3 months now and have already been through several parts and services:

    -bad motor mount replaced on drivers side
    -Not one, but TWO bad harmonic balancers - the 2nd one must've been faulty from the factory because none of the accessories are misaligned, and no belt shredding
    -paint chipping off the radio buttons - fixed with a black sharpie - ;-)
    -synthetic mobile1 oil change
    -ground effects molding clip replaced
    -wheel reconditioned - previous owner curbed the hell out of it

    (edited, forgot a few)
    My current issues:
    -reverse gear solenoid isn't working anymore - Last time I tried to go into 5th, i hit reverse instead and yeah... it crunched badly
    -anti-roll bar bushings appear to be on their way out. - Whenever i go over uneven bumps, i get side to side clunking. i haven't inspected them yet, but this is certainly the symptoms.
    -minor piston slap in the morning - I've learned to live with it, it is an LS motor after all
    -Drive shaft clunks a bit when torque is released on it. (i.e. - disengaging the clutch while moving forward in 1st) - this is another thing I've learned to live with. This 'parade clunk' is more of a feature of this car, rather than a problem I guess.

    The car has a high cost of ownership so far.. lol

    hey stealth, must have missed your newbie post. but just dropping a second welcome! lol, let me know if you want to try and meet up before the 17th or if your still planning on going? and as far as seeing any V's in orlando, i have only seen them at the dealer.... but I also only drive mine probably once a week. and i have to agree with JimmyH it is all worth it once you get it all up to spec.
