    LawFive Live from NAIS

    Hi Y'all,

    I haven't been keeping up with the threads in here so I know I risk posting old news, but I wanted to get down my impressions and the little I was able to glean from the product specialists here.

    First, the aesthetics: this car is just f u c k i n g beautiful, full stop. I knew from comparing the pics of the new CTS to the in-person car that pictures really lie, and that's true here as well. For starters, don't worry about the underbite in the splitter in front... I thought it was ugly in the pictures but in person it doesn't look bad at all. The front grill, which looks way too big in pics, is in fact gorgeous. It's not mesh like ours; instead, it's more structured and less dense; it looks cast.

    The chrome trim doesn't bother me as much as I thought it might, either. I think about all I might do is !CTS and !littleGMsquares and then roll.

    I haven't yet been able to sweet talk the presentation girl into letting me onto the platform to see the interior more closely, but I remain hopeful.

    Info from the product people:
    • Fall of '09. Manual transmission will be standard; auto with paddles behind the steering wheel will be optional. They're "guessing" the base MSRP will be "somewhere in the 60's."
    • They're claiming 550 torque and 550 "plus" horsepower because the engineers are still trying to tweak more out of the engine.
    • 183 MPH ungoverned top speed. Zero to sixty in under four seconds.
    • The engineers are working on all wheel drive as a future option.
    • The CTS coupe will come out in 2010, and there will be a V version of the coupe in 2011.

    183mph, I predicted 185+. Oh well, I was close. Now for the important stuff. You're in Michigan right? It's about 22* there. How long are your nipples right now? How long are the show girl's nipples. Extra $20 in it for a picture. Not of your nipples by the way.

    I walked back to the hotel without a coat. My nipples are rock-hard.

    I'm married so of course I didn't even look at the girl's ...

    Re: LawFive Live from NAIS

    Oops, yeah. Fall of 08.

    Update: I found the same guy ("Cliff") who let us up on the platform in Dallas, and he set it up for us to go up there again. Tony schmoozed him and the lady in charge and had them thinking we were all dealers or something. It's gogeous up close, too. The steering wheel material still looks kinda weird to me but it feels good and I'll get used to it. We were able to slide under the car and poke around, but have no new info to report that hasn't already been posted.

    We have a couple of good "man stew" pictures with the car that the lady took using Tony's camera, but we have no way of getting them onto a computer right now. I blame Tony.

    We has started to drink...

    RP, I believe Tony said he didn't take the cable to download the pics from his camera.

    We don't have a computer that will read his memory stick, and he didn't bring USB cables. I can hold his camera's LCD screen up against the laptop screen while the laptop is displaying the forum, but that's as close as I can get.

    Not downtown by Cobo, no. What kind of memory card? What kind of USB cable? When do you head home?
