    Pounder, the way it worked last time with V1 (may not be exactly the same this go around, but it's a good measuring stick):

    1) At release it was hard to find the car for sticker, most dealerships marked it up. A few dealers on here have offered to sell the car at sticker or possibly even a bit better. They may be sold out now. Not sure.

    2) I think the V1 settled down to approximately sticker price after about 6(ish) months.

    3) You could get GMS pricing on the car (emplyee pricing) within about 11 months of release. That's when and how I got mine.

    4) After about 16 - 18 months we started to see discounts.

    That was my recollection with V1. Things may be very different with V2.

    Thanks for the info!

    I just contacted some Cadillac dealers. The car can be ordered and it would take 6 to 8 weeks for delivery.
    GM military discount will be offered, and they are looking at the $2000 dollars rebate that is mentioned on this forum and on the Cadillac web site.

    I was going to wait to see what the JAGUAR XF-R would do, but if I can get that rebate, i'm buying

    The Jag is a nice car for sure. But if you're here asking about discounts you might want to spend a little time comparing long term maintenance costs between both vehicles of the stuff you would have to take care of outside any warranties.

    Any "new" model usually does not get any discount for at least 6 months (Military discount or Employee plans are different). Look at the Shelby Cobra's, before they were $5-10k over sticker, today they sit on lots. Its all about timing.

    True!
    But none of the 4 CADI dealers I contacted are asking premiums.
    And the internet site clearly states a $2000 rebate on the V, so I am curious.

    I don't think there will be any noticeable difference in running cost.
    In this kind of performance class everything will be expensive
    I am wondering though how many HP the JAG will have.
    I might just wait making the final decision until the Detroit auto show.

    The press puffery is claiming 500HP for the XF R but I'd be surprised if it quite gets there.

    All the recent Jag R efforts have had really nice eight-tenths suspensions, not really set up for all-out performance. Fine if that's what you want.

    One thing that's really amazed me is the utter lack of real 'net enthusiast base for late-model Jags.

    The XF is a hit! Jag is filling up his order book.
    I agree that the engines have been Jags problem, but looking that the XF SV8 which makes 420 hp, a 500+ hp car should be possible. We'll know in 3 months and then I will make my choice between the CTS-V and the XF-R, unless a good deal is offered now!
