    Blistering performance aside, what's your favorite V feature?

    Ok, ok - we got monster horsepower. And great handling. And Brembo brakes. But what about all the little touches? What's your favorite one?

    To get you thinking in the right direction, here's some that I have come across that the wife and I really like, but aren't exactly front-page news when the sales guys are making their pitch...my last new car was 7 years ago, so some of this stuff didn't exist last time I had a new car.

    So here goes:

    -You can pause and rewind almost any AM/FM/XM and so on. I can't tell you how many times I've missed something or talked over something my wife was trying to listen to. We have this with DVR in our home, now it's in our car. Never knew about that feature until I started reading through the manual - both cool and useful!

    -I also like the "smog sensor" feature that automatically turns on air recirculation when it detects fumes or exhaust coming in from the outside. It works pretty well so far in Houston traffic.

    So that I don't steal your thunder, I'll stop there. What have you found that you didn't know about until after you had the car home and had time to explore? What's your favorite "hidden" or unadvertised feature?

    The way that it can make me look over my shoulder and stare at it while I'm walking away.

    Not an exclusive item but I love my hard drive. Wife and I were on a hour drive and I was the DJ cranking out some great tunes!

    I love the ultra view roof when it's quite, pop up nav, and the fact that they finally decided to add Bluetooth,aux connections, and hdd. Almost forgot, the look on people's faces when they realize Cadillac makes a 6 speed manual

    The relative rarity of the V couple. Buddy lives and works in Manhattan, and sends me phone pics all the time of Phantom's, Maserati's, Bentley's etc. but he has yet to find a V coupe to send me a picture of.

    The comments I get from every drooling guy who says "I want a V just like that but my wife won't let me."

    The car is so smooth, solid, comfortable and effortless, that it inspires confidence and makes me feel it is capable of anything on the road. The electronic parking brake saved my butt on a steep gravel driveway with a nasty ditch on the side.

    +1 for the 6 speed MT but my personal favorite is the supercharger whine.
