    On the other side of the pond, Black Ice (Black Sapphire Metallic) is the base paint and the upcharge is for the Jet Black (Black Raven).

    Curious.

    That's where all the good art comes from. Along with all the best DOHC engines, of course.

    The pictures above in no way do the Black Ice justice. I was split between Raven and Black Ice so I walked the lot to see the paint in person last week. After I walked by at least 20 Black Raven CTS, and only 1 Black Ice, I decided on Black Ice. It just looks a lot deeper and is not going to show every flaw as Raven will.

    Rarely do pics do real justice to the actual paint(s) appearance in sun or shade. Especially the non standard colors.

    Very true. I think the Black Ice is sharp as heck, but some people think it has too much metal flake and looks like a dusty black car. It's all personal taste. If you're thinking about ordering a 2009 CTS-V, stop by your local Dealer and look at the colors on a DTS (since they're available now).

    Mine looks like a dusty black car everyday . . .

    Thank goodness for a California Duster.

    Black ice will also be a harder color to match and will make scratches stand out more. Some people like a lot of metal flake and some people think it looks too much like old boat paint. I feel if you are going to get black, go with regular black because it is a deeper black.

    I stopped by my dealer and he had a 2009 CTS in Black Ice, so I got to see it on the "same" car. I am going to stick with Black Ice.

    Huh? I have a black H2 (my 4th black ride in my life), that gets driven in the woods a LOT, and a solid black is not the way to go if you are thinking of buffing out a lot of scratches. Hehe. But my dig with Black is that it only takes one bad buff to haze it up or leave the orbital rings swirlies on it. Maybe I am wrong on this, but I have never seen a metal flake paint that was harder to maintain than non-flake black.

    The sales guy that walked with me even told me they detail the paint twice on all black cars to get it to look right, but did not on any others.

    My 2 cents, you may need change.

    Re: Just got a call from the dealer.

    Tony, thanks a million for the pics. That red looks stunning, but the two tone seats with the Crystal Red might not look all that great.

    Black Ice or Blue Diamond with the 2 tones might be the way to go.

    Again, thanks for the pics.
