    Seats look good with finally some lateral support.

    I hope the weird rear will get better with time ( and that's pretty rare )

    Yeah, I really like the interior. There are just two things I don’t like about the car. It looks like the engine’s redline just over 6,000 rpm. Also the car is a bit of a pig at 4,200 lbs. I hope Cadillac does a coupe and keeps the weight down. If so I think I am going to get the coupe next time around.

    Huh... They moved the parking brake pull from the lower dash to the center console.

    • Acoustic engine cover
    • Piston oil squirters
    I responded in the other thread, what is GM thinking?
    Hopefully, that was a misprint and they are using Forged pistons like they have in the LS9 engine.
    To handle the heat. And... they still could be forged.

    I think it states they are cast in the additional features in the specs though. Kinda bad news for those looking to add more boost, but at the same time pretty impressive considering the stock power levels and decision that cast would be sufficient.

    They employ oil squirters to assist in cooling and they do make a difference. This is still a luxo car so the hyperU's will be quieter.
