    I am officially a 2009 CTS-V owner! 56k=NO

    I purchased from Scott at Superior, one of this board's sponsors. He treated me extremely well and I would recommend anyone here or in my family to him. I looked at his list of incoming vehicles on this very board and called him on Tuesday. He said he had my preferred combo (Radiant Silver/Ebony) coming in THE NEXT DAY. We did the financing over the phone. I drove out early Friday...it's about 2 1/2 hours from Cleveland. The longest part of the deal was waiting for the used car appraiser to appraise my Acura RL....took a couple of hours. I got what I felt was a reasonable trade deal for the RL. I was rather nervous, as I always am when I purchase a car, but Scott did a good job of relieving the pressure.

    Scott even allowed me to test drive the car to my satisfaction (just enough to warm up the tires, it was cold that day) prior to signing any paperwork...without prompting! Drove off the lot a much happier person. It's not every day one drives off in an affordable supercar.

    But who cares about all that, you want pictures!

    I have driven it over 300 miles so far and the experience is incredible. There is torque anywhere you need it. The fit and finish are awesome, as good as my RL, and that's saying something given the RL was built in Saitama, Japan, in one of Honda's best factories. The General has definitely come out with a fine product. I'll post a full review after a few weeks with the car, but I am NOT sorry I traded the RL, as much as I loved the SH-AWD (torque vectoring AWD made for wonderful handling in the dry).


    "Sleeping Beauty", my RL


    I have dubbed my V, "Silver Dragon".

    Thank goodness for XM and CNN!




    Time for a rest stop break!



    The only interesting that happened on the Turnpike...



    Almost home!

    Save the environment? BWAHAHAHAHAHAHAHAHAHAHAHAHAHAHA!


    Mod #1: Transfer of my son's Britax Marathon car seat to the V. The ride is so smooth that my son slept on his first trip in the car.

    This car will be my daily driver. The wife, my little boy, and I went grocery shopping today. The trunk is better configured than in my RL. I realize that seeing groceries in a supercar is not what most people expect, but this car will be one fast grocery-getter.


    The key fob....alarm, keyless entry just like my RL, with the addition of remote start

    Congratulations anonfrank. Love the color combo....

    This write-up and these pics brought a smile to my face, I'm really thinking I'm getting close to pulling the trigger. Looking forward to the full review.

    Congrats on joining the very exclusive best sport sedan owners in the world club!

    I particularly love the "green" sticker. I think I'll proudly frame mine and display it in my shop!

    A global warming score of 1 !!! YES!! On a lighter note, could someone explain the green indicator light in the right instrument pod? Loved the pics - thanks.

    Thanks for the comments. I'll have to become a paying member around here as the site has been helpful from the time I joined--which was right after the new V was announced. I've been planning to buy one since then.

    That's the new Forbes Park in Bedford Heights/Oakwood, just opened last fall. Are there V (or Caddy) meets around the Cleveland area? I'm attuned to the Honda/Acura scene and so don't know.

    I thought I'd get a chuckle out of the Global Warming Scale. My S2000 and wife's Pilot make up for the V.

    The green light is the "headlight on" indicator.

    It was a pleasure doing business with you. I had one of those "I didn't know I was going that fast" moments on the Turnpike on the way home from you. I got into the third lane to pass and pushed lightly on the accelerator. I was suddenly at 105 mph the next time I looked down at the speedometer. I backed off immediately. This happened a few miles before the burning truck pictured above, so luckily the Highway Patrol had bigger fish to fry than me at that moment. I've learned to be more careful with the throttle.

    I need to see whether I'm on call for the weekend of V-Days....I'd like to go so I can learn to control this car before its limits, without killing myself.

    It took me a few seconds to figure that one out....only a few. One more reason to opt for an automatic over the 6MT V!
