    you need to upgrade dude. there will literally be almost no comparison between the old and new V in any meaningful performance category.

    If my son would've said that I would've slapped him. Oops, he's only 2 years old. Rolled up newspaper then.

    But the 'old' V will now be a classic. Particularly the '04.
    (if I say this enough times, I'll start to believe it)

    Chris,

    Nice to see you are still around. I take it you will probably be like me and jump into the 09 like I will and then be biaothin until they fix the issues in'10 or '11.

    Definitely going to wait a few months and listen intently for some first hand experiences. I was one of the first 2004 CTS-V's in the country. I can't take that experience twice.

    Jimmy's feisty here lately. You have such a way with words. Your wit is unrivaled and apparently the warning from site owner and senior moderator did nothing to curtail your reprobatic behavior. I suggest you be more obsequious, but I doubt you will. Making great theater for the rest of us. Now continue on with your puerile jibes as they make me giggle.

    I honestly wonder how a V like mine would do against a stock '09 V on the road course. I'd be probably giving up 10-20hp and maybe 50lbft of torque but undercutting the weight by about 350lbs. The suspension on the new V will probably be superior with the super fast magneto-blah,blah but my ride is sprung pretty stiffly too.

    I was thinking the same thing about my V. But if you're selling yours, what difference does it make?

    The new one has a superior chassis and suspension, and the power to weight ratio is better. I don't see the extra weight making any difference, new one should smoke the old one. (And I own the old one too)

    Have you seen track times for it yet? How do they compare to track times for a modded V like mine or Chef's old car? I definitely WANT the new V to be faster than my currently modded V since hopefully I'll be sitting in one in the future. I'm just speculating that a modded first Gen will be able to keep up with it on a road course. I think the new V will defnitely smoke most of the modded first Gens at the drag strip.

    Well, if I want to upgrade to the new V I certainly want to make sure its faster than my current one at the track. So, it makes alot of difference!

    I think the C&D had the 1/4 at 12.4? Don't remember, just got it today and I am too lazy to go look. There is my useless post for the day!

    BTW - my 8 yr old said the same thing. "Dad, that's your car except grey!"

    My response...."Yeah, son! It sure is!"

    For about $15K more than the current model, it sure better! But I don't think BMW or Chrysler will sit still either - I wonder how they will answer HP wise?
    And I have to agree, if my decision to upgrade were based only on styling, I most definately would not spend the extra money to upgrade. For now, I love my '05 - it still will out-perform 80-85% of the cars now on the road and still has a lot of goodies to play with.
