    Re: Here's how this works-tell me if 09 V any different

    I am going to try and keep my cars from here on out. That will mean, I won't be able to switch up as often. I think the CTS-V is a good bet. It is not certain how long these ultra-high performance cars will be around. I believe we are living in a second muscle car era, and the "80s" are just around the bend...

    More M5s are sold every year than CTS-Vs which to me says the M5 is a larger market.

    Cheap and slushbox won't pull most M5 owners out of their cars.

    BUT, it's price and slushbox very well could sway a lot of 550, E550, M45, s6, and GS460 intenders to something a bit more extreme for sure!! Really with the base options the CTS-V will probably come with, you will probably be getting it for the same configured price as these cars if you were planning to option them out much at all. And it will take atleast SOME M5 and E63 buyers. Not to mention SOME M3 and C63, even though they aren't really the same sorta size and such.

    V1 does not equal V2. It's a whole new ballgame with this car.

    When I lived in Detroit I thought that. Now that I live in California I don't.

    "Caddy vs BMW" is sort of like "Nascar vs Formula 1" or "Muscle vs Finesse", etc. etc.

    Most BMW drivers I know would never consider a Cadillac regardless of the numbers because throwing a "truck" engine in a big car is not the way elitists care to compete.

    The aspects of the V2 that are truly world-class / state of the art appear to be the suspension and perhaps the new interior. The rest (big displacement / low efficiency, slushbox, pig, etc.) are still behind the times even if the numbers compete or exceed.

    (I am presenting the counter-argument here. I am buying the V2

    I was thinking it looked more like that "Sizzle-lean" crap from the 80s. Err, wait, do they still make that?

    One gets what one pays for in life. Pay sticker to be first or wait and spend the money saved on mods.

    Up until now they've had a better product. It's a whole different shooting match come this November.

    Around the world there's no way V2 will do better than M or AMG for years, if ever, but I think Caddy will do just fine on their V2 numbers. That is, as long as there are enough of us idiots willing to pay $20.00 an hour or more for gas.

    More go, shift or don't (your choice), $20-30K less... I agree that most M5 owners won't switch, but I think most potential M5 buyers will give V2 a long, hard look and may decide to give it a try.
