    Hello everyone,

    I've been a member since 2008 and FINALLY purchased my own 2009 CTS V. I waited 7 years (I've wanted a V since 2006) and of course, An entire vehicle redesign, which added more time to my wait, since I had to have the new model. I'm from the Seattle area but, I found my V at Wayzata Cadillac in Minnesota. It has just 22k on it. All options including Recaros, AT, Pano roof & heated/cooled seats. They even put new Pilot Sports on it! (Score!). It's all stock except, I put Vitesse Racing paddle shifters on it. It's Black Raven on Black with Polished wheels. The calipers have been painted red with the C4 paint and they have white Brembo decals on them. I was in hopes that they were actually Brembo calipers but, oh well. They look really good. I am ordering D3 Comp. springs this week and a D3 CAI pretty soon. I'm so stoked to finally own my own V. As I said, I've been a member here since 2008 and its been Pure Torture and yet totally awesome to see all the killer V's! Happy to be a real part of this forum now.

    Fear not those are still Brembo brakes. They are standard. They may be painted they may have come grey originally.

    Very nice. Once I start modding my car there is a chance that I will sell my springs...eibach lowering springs. They are in now so if you can wait then maybe you can save some money. I would know in about 2 weeks maybe 3 weeks. Some of the guys can chime in on how badly it will effect my launches once I reach like 600whp which will be soon. I have brand new lower profile pilot sports myself.

    I am curious how much you paid and how much warranty you have left? Good luck with the new ride.

    Hello Arca500,

    Congrats on your 09' CTS-V! Great color choices; black on black looks very sharp and I am sure the red calipers makes it pop. I only hear great things from V owners. We are happy to have you in the V family now, as I am sure you are just as excited. Enjoy driving your awesome Caddy around.

    Sincerely,

    Laura M.

    It must have been a torture for you to wait so long.
    You will see that the car is awesome worth the wait.
    Great color combo... the same as mine.

    Congrats! Hoping to join you soon. Loan is approved and I've found one I'm pretty interested in. Now to just get the out-of-state seller to take it to the dealership to get it checked out for me (and arrange shipping if it checks out).

    Of course every V has Brembos! So awesome! Let me clarify. What I meant was I hoped that somebody wanted Red Brembos bad enough that they actually went out and purchased Red Brembo calipers from Brembo rather than painting them. I am totally good with the painted caliper now. They look great and you can't even tell the difference.
