    Those are Recaros. You can almost make out "recaro" on the chrome tag above the seat controls. What is not evident in photos is that the thigh bolsters are most likely rock hard (I know they are in my BMW). You do not want full race eggshells with limited adjustments in a street car. Recaro Sports are perfect.

    To those that have seen it in person - how does that steering wheel look / feel?

    I wonder if it would be possible to replace that fake-suede microfiber on the steering wheel with good old hard leather. The more pictures I see, the more that steering wheel looks like it's screaming for fuzzy dice.

    I love the suede wheel. Regular leather sucks ass.

    They remind me of the same quality as the "H" spoke wheels on the Viper, great looking up until you get within 5 feet to see some of the cloudiness of the polishwork. Lots of BRIGHT lighting revealed this though. Overall, many people have a problem with them , I personally think they are great. The new front cailpers look KILLER! In my opinion it would be cool to see a set of these in BLACK CHROME. Black wheels scream that "just got off the racetrack" look, and the chrome would compliment Cadillac's motif.

    Re: CTS-V images from Detroit

    As I stated before, I don't care for the wheels. Somewhere between the Shelby and SS Camaro wheels. Easy fix though. Finally saw the picture that I was looking for..........rear differential. Is it camouflaged somehow? Can't seem to make it out in the picture.

    I have been predicting all along that you can get one for an invoice of $56K or below.

    it'll be like anything else, sticker+ for the first few months until all the gottahaveitnows get theirs
    then they will discount the crap out of them

    probably be alot of folks replacing the wheels now that they are 5lug

    I don't see it either. I saw the video of their driving the thing out onto the turntable, but could they have taken it out? I see two patches of something on the rear part of the exhaust; could this be where it is supposed to be?

    Conspiracy theorists please weigh in...

    eh, maybe it's just the strange angle/perspective of the picture. There is that black hunk of something in there that could be cast iron I guess.
