    Re: Another 08 CTS Built

    I got an email from a material manager at the plant last week saying they don't expect the B20 trim to be available until late September, early October.

    I like RAB's idea. If you order it, want it, and your car doesn't come with it, GM should pay to ship them to your dealer and have them install them at no charge when they are available. If you don't want it, get reimbursed for the cost of the option.

    Guess the only way I'll know for sure is when my car arrives.
    I remember reading that it was specifically related to the steering wheel piece not the shifter piece. So I wonder if they would put it on the shifter and not the steering wheel? Very odd....

    Nice work. Boo on Cadillac for not having this issue taken care of and then not communicating better.

    I'm at status 5000. Car is at dealer. Going through PDI right now.

    Unfortunately, we can't pick it up until Saturday - it is for my wife and she is out of town until then and she needs to sign the paperwork.

    Zymurgy,
    EXCELLENT NEWS!! CONGRATS! So you'll have the car on Saturday. Hey, there's nothing wrong with that! Looking forward to seeing a few pics of your car when you post them. (I'll have to view them though from across the pond).
    I saw and then sat in another '08 CTS this morning (that makes three '08 CTS's I've seen & sat in during a space of 12 hours). The one this morning was Lt. Platinum, with an Ebony interior. That's how I ordered mine. The car looks absolutely terrific. (You will not miss option B20, believe me. B19 is more than sufficient).
    I totally can't wait to get mine now. I'll have the car when I return from my trip (Sept. 20th). Counting the days, once again.

    Thanks, RAB. I'll post photos on Saturday. I already went to the dealership and took a look at it. Still had all the protective coverings on it. Have a good trip.

    Zymurgy,

    What were the "tricks" you used to pul the window sticker up on the internet? I'm hoping to pick mine up this week also. I know how to pull up the general inventory. I thought sold vehicles wouldn't show up in inventory.

    Just go to Cadillac.com and select the CTS. Then use the Search Inventory. When you get to your local dealers inventory, just click on any of the Window Sticker links. When you get that sticker displayed, go into the address bar and change the &year=2007 to &year=2008 and change the &VIN= to be whatever your vin number is.

    Thanks Zymurgy. Have fun picking up your car Saturday. We'll have to compare notes when I get mine in the next couple days.

    Hi Guys,
    I just picked up our new 08 CTS in San Antonio. It's a terriffic auto. Both my wife and I love it. I thought the pop up nav was going to be chincy but, it is impressive. I can't wait to take it on a trip.

    Anyone else see the CTS on the USA show Burn Notice last night? One of the characters, Sam, is given a Thunder gray 2008 CTS. Looks and sounds nice. Show will be re-broadcast on August 25th at 8 PM EST if anyone's interested.
