    Apparently a small sample cars are put through quality testing at the factory after being built. Took delivery with 27 miles on the odometer, so I figure it was driven 15-20 miles during the testing. My dealer thought I would be upset and apologized. I was OK with it as I know it's an important part of the manufacturing process. Plus, I know my new V should be perfect.

    I have a blk/blk 09 sedan and love it. but no matter what color or configuration these are just great looking cars!!! I would have a hard time trying to pick another color. We are all lucky to have one.

    Bought mine about a month ago. 2009 6 speed manual, recaros, sunroof, polished wheels, suede steering wheel & shifter knob. One owner with only 15500 miles. The car is awesome. Also came with $2000+ 3M clear protection kit installed on panels all over the car. Had it tinted and added the rear window spoiler and led interior bulbs so far. Have an airaid intake and HID fogs on order now.

    Wink Re: Pics of *delivered* CTS-Vs here

    ... so I had grown tired of the HSV Senator (Aussie up-spec'd G8) and wanted to do something different that also gave me a GM V8 platform to continue developing products with. Although I had done a fair bit of research (lots from this forum), I did not really expect to make a purchase until later in the year, however; I had to spend a couple of weeks in California late-Feb/early-March and thought I should show my lovely wife the likely choice. Found a diamond-white in Torrance & went for a look, which became a test-drive. The sales guy tried the hard sell which just irritated me so I walked away. Next day, Feb 29th, he gives me a call (had to give my details to get the drive) and tries the sales-spin again. Brushed him off with the "don't really want it until April". Eventually I made him a bone cheap offer which he squealed at & I hung up. An hour later he calls back and we do the deal at $500 more than my rather offensive offer - I suspect he needed the sale in Feb.

    I spent the last five days in USA driving around Ventura/Santa Barbara and up to San Francisco & back (coast road). SO MUCH FUN! I love that car.
    Now the next phase begins ... bringing it to Aussie and converting it to right-hand-drive before submitting it for certification & road-worthy approval. I expect it will be about 9 months before I get to really enjoy driving it again, but I am certain it will be worth the wait.

    I really appreciate the input given by so many to this forum - a great place for help. I look forward to being able to contribute in future.

    Re: Pics of *delivered* CTS-Vs here

    Hi everyone--first post here and a new owner.

    Several Diamond White V's joining up lately on this thread, and now I'm one of them too!

    2012 CTS-V in Diamond white w/all black interior, tinted windows, auto, black satin wheels, reverse camera, yellow calipers, suede wheel/shifter & Recaros...got a killer deal.

    And my favorite "option"...NO SUNROOF I'm 6'4" so I needed the headroom, plus I didn't want to deal with all of the Ultra-View problems & potential issues. There seem to be pages and pages of complaints about that stupid roof. Couldn't believe they had this car in stock at my local dealer. The thing is a rush and I haven't gotten her past 3500rpm yet, lol.

    Looking forward to enjoying the car. Glad to be a part of the community now.

    right with ya there on the sunroof buddy. Best part is I would bet $$ the non-sunroof cars are RARE. When I went to the dealer today to remeber ~ much height it ads, there wasen't a single sunroof-less CTS on the lot. The only one they have is a loaner car, which was occupied.

    I didn't realize how much extra head room the Ultra-View consumed until I sat in this car. My head or the top of my hair always brushes the roof of nearly every car I drive. In this car I have headroom to spare. I also do not push the driver's seat all the way back, even as tall as I am. I really like the extra space for it being a "midsize" car.

    Drive it 100+ miles today. Couldn't help it. Very happy.

    Re: Pics of *delivered* 09 Vs here

    Hi All,
    Just picked up my first Caddy yesterday! A 2012 CTS V Coupe in Black Diamond w/Recaros, and Suede wheel. I'm so happy with it! I had a really hard time deciding between the white and black diamond but the the black one had the Recaros so that was the deciding factor.
    Already thinking of an exhaust and air intake. Will those two mods void the warranty?
    Thanks,
    Ben

    Congrats! As for those 2 mods they will not void your warranty. Of course, if you have the worst dealer ever, they may try to play that card....

    Thanks, that's good to hear because the salesman was not sure and would not say much about it.
