    Be aware that there are new model CTS owners who are putting badges on their cars. We've spotted a black one driving around in our area that did it. So badge alone may just be another V badger.

    I agree, but for the 09 any Caddy person should be able to pick out the V with no questions. The hood and front grilles are a no mistaker. The standard CTS can't get the same grill design as the V, they are totally 2 different shapes this time around.

    True but look at the posters statement, it was dark out with the other car's headlights on coming from behind. He gets a look when it's to his side and sees a V badge. Driving down the road at speed when it's dark isn't always the best time to examine the details of model differences. I'm not saying it wasn't a V, just pointing out there are some normal new model CTS owners who have chosen to badge their car.

    Sorry I left out that we did take the same exit and I did see it at a red light. I'm sure it was a V. It may have been one of the GM execs around here.

    By the way I just saw a red V in Southfield, MI, just outside Detroit. I'm 100 percent sure this time cause it was in daylight about 10 minutes ago.

    We used to be a lot harder on NON supporting members. Now that I think about it, it used to be tougher all around.

    They will have to sort out the first year bugs so time will tell.
