    I've got a fairly low-resolution pic here: http://www.cadillacforums.com/forums...w-v-owner.html

    I did have the car at this weekend's get-together in Fontana, so hopefully someone caught a few pics that will be up shortly.

    YES! That's exactly the combination I'm looking for!





    trying to figure out if this has some pop to it or if it's too dark of a color and reminds me of my A6 and Durango. In some pics it looks this way, but in others--- like yours, it's very bright, which *almost* reminds me of Audi's Nogaro Blue.

    Id love to see some sun photos of that color. Audi and BMW both have a similar blue that Im a huge fan of.

    It's a very bright color. I saw a whole bunch of them in person at my local dealer - they had probably 15-20 of the blue ones (not all Vs). I wouldn't classify it as dark at all.

    I'll have to pop over to the dealer sometime. *if* I can make a stick V work, I have it narrowed to white diamond or Opulent blue. Since WDT's are everywhere and I've read horror stories on them coming out splotchy or cloudy sometimes.. I'm really hoping I like the Blue.

    I have Opulent blue metallic in color in a coupe but with just the polish wheels, for my taste the color pops out with the chrome on it.
    I don't have a real good pic of it in the sun but it looks good to me. The metallic shows up in it when the sun gets on it and at night it looks a little on the purple side. We got rain now so I can't get a pic outside today. I only seen one around the NC coast and it belongs to me. I don't think there are many out there yet.

    I'd say it's somewhere in the middle. It does tend to vary a lot depending on the light. It's brighter than the first one in the sun, but darker than the second example with less light.

    I'll have to hop over to the dealer Saturday then. If it's closer to the latter I may still be game.

    I may take the hit and trade in for a Tremec with a sunroof delete. It's pretty annoying to have to contort your head when you're trying to drive fast wearing a helmet, it ruins the whole experience.

    Roger that I have a sunroof delete car myself. Prepare to search for months, or just place a custom order for a !sunroof car.
