    No CTS-V for me

    Went to the auto show here in Florida while on vacatin. Turns out I don't fit in the CTS!! I do however fit in the STS with no problem, no XLR either for us. We checked out a few other cars and have now been able to narrow it down to three, the STS, a Jag XF supercharged and an Infiniti M35. The latter is my GF choice because of all wheel drive since we live in Ohio. At a meager 275 HP its not in my running!

    Re: No CTS-V for me

    I'm 6'8" and can fit in a CTS. Don't like the visibility issues with the large C pillar, but I can fit.
    I have not sat in one with a sunroof.
    You must be a pretty large guy not to be able to ge comfortable.

    Re: No CTS-V for me

    I'm 6'4 and 305, when I tried to fold myselft into the CTS I had to put the tilt wheel in the full up position to get my legs on either side, there was no way I could really operate the foot pedals comfortably, my legs were still bent and resting against the center console, not something I find comfortable. Reminds me of our Sebring convert which I can't wait to get rid of.

    I am a touch shorter than you and a touch wider and I fit in my V1 fine. I haven't sat in a V2 yet but I have sat in the 08 CTS and I was fine as well.
    Now the STS has a ton more room though.
    I am rocking a STS-4 for the winter and love the extra room.
