    In the market for a CTS-V

    Hey guys, this is my first post on here. My lease is about to end on my BMW 3 Series and was looking to purchase a used CTS-V.

    Before I call the dealer, I was hoping to get feedback on the color (inside and out) as well as what a fair price would be.

    If anybody made a purchase on a similar car then please provide any input you may have.

    Thanks.

    Re: In the market for a CTS-V

    I can comment on few things as I had exactly same combo except I had the manual version:
    - Black diamond tri coat has LOTS of metal flakes. Sparkles like a diamond under a direct sun, can look "dirty" in the shade (like pollen). Some like it, some do not. Hides imperfections (swirls, scratches, etc) pretty well for a black color. But requires a frequent wash. People know me (even ones I meet for the first time) as "that guy who washes his Cadillac all the time".
    - I like the mustard yellow interior. It breaks up the monotone black/gray.
    - Yellow calipers definitely pops against black wheels on a black car.
    - Satin black wheels does wonders in masking the awful brake dust on this car. I'm not sure how people have polished wheel on this thing without cleaning them everyday. HOWEVER, it's almost impossible to get a touch up paint for the wheels. I experimented with magic marker, satin wheel paint, matte wheel paint, etc. There's actually little bit of metal flakes in the wheel paint if you get close to wash it.

    I lost track of how many thumbs up I received with this car. Most people want to know the exact exterior mods and where I had them done. Mine was complete stock. : )

    That's exactly what I'd have gotten if I had wanted a coupe. I was disappointed that I couldn't get the Saffron seats in a wagon.

    grasshopper,

    Thanks very much for the input. My current BMW is black so I know the need for constant washes. You are correct about the wheels though. Hopefully I want need to touch them up, not likely though .

    If they're putting "call for price" on the add, that's because they have no intention of competing with any other publicly advertised vehicle.

    IMHO that means their bottom dollar is probably going to be several thousand higher than anyone else, but they'll be really good salesmen. Not sure if the saffron is a "must have" for you, but black coupes have got to be the most available CTSV combo out there right now next to silver sedans. Make sure you hit all the major sites (autotrader, yahoo, ebay, carmax, etc) before calling these guys up so you know where it needs to be.

    Any time!

    For little more information, that car was on sale at that dealership when I was selling my V back in March. Since it has been on their lot for a time, you may have some leverage in negotiation.

    This may be a good starting point for what they are asking. Does the car look familiar? : )

    Clearly at Call for Price, the dealer can start wherever. If anybody made a purchase on a similar car then please provide any input you may have.

    Thanks.

    That mileage the car is probably 54kish. That looks like a killer car, love the interior.
