    Just got a call from the dealer.

    One of my local dealers is beginning their pre-order tomorrow and he said that along with the fast Black being available with the normal Light Platinum, Thunder Grey that for 09 Crystal Red and Blue Chip will also be available.

    Still no White Diamind for those hoping for it.

    I think your Dealer is a little confused.

    Blue Chip and Light Platinum have been discontinued, and White Diamond will be available. I posted all this information in April (http://www.cadillacforums.com/forums...formation.html), but here it is again:

    *Denotes an additional charge

    Hmmmmm, odd.

    He did mention that pricing was set to but I forgot to ask before I had to get off the phone.

    Seeing how I've owned 20+ black cars, tell me more about this Black Ice color Tony.

    Side note - Stormtrooper white diamond will be kick ass with the right supporting tasteful touches.

    Re: Just got a call from the dealer.

    As far as I understand it from our paint supplier, Black Ice is pretty much Black Raven with crushed glass added to the clearcoat layer. As such, all the metal flake sits above the color coat, making it extremely "sparkly" (for lack of a more masculine word ). It looks Black at night and in the shade, but Charcoal Gray metallic in direct sunlight.

    It's still foggy and crummy here at 8:15- when the sun comes out, I'll take a few photos and post them up here.

    If it's the same guy who didn't know the colors, I wouldn't bother.

    Tony,

    I would love to see the blue and red also....any cars on the lot with those colors? I know the red is available in the CTS, the blue might be a new color.

    And what's your thought on the Ebony/cashmere interior? It intrigues me.

    Thanks.

    He drove both my CTS-V and STS-V and claims it's my fault he's now ordered an 09V. Hopefully I will get to drive his after it's broken in. He's been an SUV guy for many years.

    Here's a picture of a Blue Diamond DTS I posted in a different section of the forum. It's very similar to the Black Ice in that it looks a solid color from 10 feet away, but on close inspection there's a LOT of flake in the paint.





    The Crystal Red is the same color offered on the V6 CTS, so here's a picture of ejmachad's car from the 08 forum:



    It's still too cruddy outside for the camera to pick up the Black Ice. I'll post a pic when it clears up and the sun comes out.

    As far as the two-tone seats, I think they'll look pretty awesome. The only downside is that you can't get that option with the Recaros, so it will be the standard CTS seat in Ebony with a Saddle (brown) insert. This interior doesn't exist yet, so I made a (very crude) Photoshop to give you an idea what it would look like. Hope that helps.

    No problem Chris.

    Here's the Black Ice: It's still overcast, but if you look at the area around the flash reflection it'll give you a pretty good idea what it looks like in the sun. It has a comparable amount of metallic to the Blue Diamond pic I posted above.

    Ah, thanks for the Black Ice info Tony. My current drive-to-work beater has a similar paint called black sapphire metallic. It seemed cool at the time but now I wish it was just plain old black. Looks like Raven for me.

    You should know Black Ice. Isn't that along with 3rd what you hit with the RIP-V??
