    The only thing disappointing is that it's not already in my garage.

    You can have the current car. I'll take this one next fall as well. This appears to be a better car in every single respect and unlike the old V, is actually set up for real performance. I always got the impression with the old car that it was a base CTS with a Vette engine dropped in as an afterthough and that was it. That's why I chose to just get the real thing (Corvette). This appears to be a car designed for performance. I can't wait.

    Not really...

    Tasteful, aggressive, quasi ricer-look (does that make sense?).

    I bit ricer looking, but only because it needed to be for the intercooler I am sure is behind that lower mesh grill. I am sure they would have retained a face more like the standard 2009 CTS's, but that wouldn't have worked for the intercooler probably.

    How much will that cost to repair when the warranty expires?

    Well the Lincoln LS has that and I haven't heard of many problems. But one of the complaints about the '08 CTS was no electronic park brake. And now we finally know what that little panel was for on the '08 CTS. Seems like Caddy planned it a while back, but didn't have it ready for the '08 launch.

    Re: disappointed by 09 V

    I'm disappointed that I have to wait until Q4. Other than that I'm in love all over again. Haven't been this excited about a car since late 2003 just before buying my 2004 CTS-V on 2/12/04. Oh how I've missed thee.
