Kangaroo ball sacks are apparently very supple, yet durable. There is one drawback though from early pre-production models. During cold weather testing the material suffers from excessive shrinking and may turn a shade of blue. BigJim shared with me that this was corrected through a process known as T-Bagging. Where the ball sacks are impregnated with teflon. Science is amazing.
    The King is back!!! Almost as funny as the ripped nipple tale!
    ... and now I know the true meaning behind the term T-bagging.

    Very impressive explanation, CVP. Looking forward to having you back on the boards once you get rid of that New Yorker- err....300.

    There really is only one word to describe the interior of the 09 CTSV as pictured here in this thread....STUNNING!

    I thought T-Bagging was when she lays her head back over the toilet, then you straddle the bowl and...........oh, never mind.........

    Nah, CVP is familiar with T-bagging. He's familiar with every sack of every Cadillac Service Advisor in the Mid-Atlantic.

    And I'm guessing you wrap your furniture in plastic, too? I'm pretty concerned with appearance but you're just insane. No, anal is more like it. You're a Cadillac goatse, aren't you?

    Interior looks great.
    However, how will anyone more than 5ft tall fit in there?
    Does anyone drive with their seats that far forward?

    No. And speaking of which, I certainly will miss the seatbelt built into the top of the seat.

    I met more than my fair share of sacks working in Cadillac Service Centers. I'd still like to kick a few.
