    Re: Ordering a V wagon

    Wow, GM must be busy at that Lansing plant pumping out V's with last minute orders, theres been a lot of guys on here recently who are ordering or have recently got their new V's, the rush is on as I believe April 14'th or 15th is the cutoff date for orders. Good luck with your order, just make sure the dealer has proper allocation, I think that was why my order got so delayed was because the dealer I ordered through must have not had the allocation and they put them to the end of the production list when this happens. If everything is all set on the dealers end, you should have the car within a couple of months generally.

    Re: Ordering a V wagon

    1997BlackETC, I am not in a huge rush as I have two full months before I even get home, but I think my dealer does a fair amount of business and has the proper allocation. I am waiting to hear back from them to see about changing from OBM to SBM so I will report back and let you all know.

    Re: Ordering a V wagon

    Why do I feel like I'm going to be kicking myself in a couple of months?

    Re: Ordering a V wagon

    Limited run colors are tempting. Perhaps that's why?

I think your color combo choice will be even more unique plus it's a limited edition so your car will be very rare with more than likely less then 20 Vagons if that in that combo.

    You have similiar tastes in colors as I do. I actually had a thunder gray 2012 sedan too and ordered a opulent blue wagon with red calipers. The order was taking so long I ended up cancelling and getting a black diamond wagon off a lot in PA. For me this might be the best color anyhow because I'm pushing 55 and feel it just looks a little more sophisticated especially with the beige/gold colored pinstripe I put on it to sorta match the yellow calipers. I'm super happy with my color combo. I see according to your zip you must be from Fla, me too, winters, maybe next fall we should have some sort of meet at Bradenton Dragway, that would be fun. I'm more than likely taking my car to the meet at Darlington which is April 20th (it was cancelled march and re-scheduled) which is for all LS powered GM cars, theres a lot of GTO's and G8GT's, GXPS's there that's how I started going to this meet when I had my Pontiac G8GT.
    I think the red calipers or possibly the silver standard calipers are the only colors that would look right with SBM. This is based off my extensive research (read: hours of googling images). I am just bit north of you in TN, so I'm unsure of what website trickery is indicating my zip code is FL. My best friend from growing up lives in Naples, so I might be passing through this summer to visit him. Perhaps we need to have a V meetup. A V-eetup?

    Some fun in MS paint.

    Re: Ordering a V wagon

    The order is in!

    From the dealer:
    Cadillac has confirmed that we can build the CTSV wagon, 6 spd. in the Stealth Blue package. These are limited edition short order time vehicles. The Stealth Blue comes as a complete package.
    I'll admit. I'm quite excited!

    Re: Ordering a V wagon

    Great news! Congrats and I'm excited for you!

    Make sure you report in, in six weeks with the result. That is going to be a rare color for sure.

    It'd be really cool if the dealer drove it/flatbedded it up to the airport to deliver it to you in person as soon as you get off the plane from your deployment.....

    Re: Ordering a V wagon

    Awesome - I am mildly disappointed I didn't see real photos of the stealth blue prior to ordering. I - like so many others - kind of assumed it was a matte finish like the silver and was turned off by that. If I knew it was a standard gloss paint like the Supersonic blue... I might have jumped on it also.

    Looking forward to the photos!

    Re: Ordering a V wagon

    Thanks, but why stop at flatbedding it? Let's get it on a C17 and fly it to meet me here. Some variation on Porsche's European Delivery, but maybe more like Middle East Delivery. :-)

    I will definitely share updates and photos.

    I sincerely doubt you'd want to drive your V on the "streets" of Crapghanistan. Now if they'd let you run it up and down the runway at KAF, that'd be another story.

    A CTS-V driving down the ramp of a C17 would be very dramatic.

    Re: Ordering a V wagon

    I already completed a year in Afghanistan, and I certainly would not want the car there nor in Iraq. But I'm not in either of those countries this time. The V would be fun here, but best to leave it at home.

    Re: Ordering a V wagon

    Oh ya, you def would not want it there, not only the native folks but other service people would be hugely Jealous and poss vandalize the car. Even when I use to own my business and drive one of my fancy cars to work the workers would get pissed off, like "why am I not driving one of those cars" I found it best to drive a clunker back and forth to my gas stations everyday, it kept people from talking.

    My bad. I just assumed you were in the 'Stan. My last few deployments have been to South America. I definitely wouldn't want to drive it there either. Was hoping to get Germany for my next assignment, but no dice. I would have loved to lap the Nurburgring in my Vagon.

    Re: Ordering a V wagon

    Actually, I was in Ushuaia, Argentina (southernmost city in the world) three weeks ago and saw a new ZR1 vet on the street. Don't know how it got there given that via road there is about a thousand miles of dirt/gravel between Ushuaia and the nearest paved road on the mainland. Definitely keep the V in the U.S.!

    I wasn't serious about actually bringing the V over here.

    01APR: Order placed
    04APR: Accepted by production control

    Next step: scheduled build date
