    It's nice to have such a dilemna, which one to drive!

    Put my wife in the Honda minivan and she will scare the hell out of 8 people.

    After less than 200 miles it is hard to do much of a comparison. It is easier to compare sedans (forget the Viper--the front end torque and neck jerk is ridiculous but also tiring)

    XLR--V vs CTS-V--the X was a funny car. Beautiful and IMO better looking than anything the Germans made in a 2 seater--a real head turner. But the car did not really handle very well which was maddening with 440HP. It also was noisy inside and becuase of the lack of space under the hood they put what looked like a lawn mower battery in it--I went through 3 of them. Great looking but nothing you would track

    M5 vs CTS--V--too early to say much. The SMG tranny on the M is sheer genius allowing clutchless stick shifting, paddles, and automatic. The problem was it tried to do too much. If you were in auto it was very clunky and you would swear something was wrong with the car. The paddles were large==so much so I would often hit the wipers by mistake --the V easier. The M was 7 speed. The M also had 2 modes you could switch on wheel--400 HP or 510. It also had neat auto seat inflaters that would support your body in turns---not a car you wanted to own out of warranty. One of the most maddening things on the M was electronic oil register instead of a simple dipstick. The I Drive could make you nutty if you did not take time to learn it. American cars do a much better job of making simpler controls. It takes me 20 minutes to adjust the heat in my kids' Hondas.


    As I said yesterday, the V seems faster off the off the line than the M and after that fairly even.I suspect the M gets more attention cause more folks take notice of that M badge but who knows. Attention not always good. In that regard Va is very strict on front plate law and for the life of me I don't know where you would put it on this car.

    No it's not, yet ANOTHER significant error on Caddys 360 view on their official website. It is written on the ordering guide and other written material that it is not avaliable in Recaros. The rear seats on also show the tabs for the pull down rear seats, which is also not available on the V version

    BTW, the exhaust note on this car continues to impress and should only get better over time. I told my friends at Corsa (I put Corsas on all my cars) they have their work cut out for them. The V is not loud but very throaty--much more so than a Viper or Vette out of the factory.

    For me an exhaust change (usually the first thing I do) will be made as much on apprearance as sound. Caddy did a nice job on this aspect.
