    Jim, careful, he's above theee. He might wave his wand and poooofff.

    I would say nice stable n stuff but the ego is already huge-mongeous. Put me down for whatever you think.

    Guys don't be haters because I am a serious car enthusiast. There isn't any ego I say it and call it like it is from my experience with cars and my review above is the focus of the thread so lets keep it that way. I only posted photos because lots of guys on forums try to suggest I don't even own the cars I comment about and some guys on here asked me to. Please comment based on your feedback of the CTSV and other cars you have owned or driven so we can share our enthusiasm for the products across the board, make technical comparisons and learn how we can improve and enjoy the car further. Lets stay on topic.

    M5, congratulations on getting your dealer/service issues sorted and the CTS-V into your hands! I hope you like the car as much as we do. Quite honestly, I don't have much experience with cars of this caliber (other than my E500, although that car was old when I bought it), but I'm pretty sure this is the best car I've ever driven. If I could just get rid of the creaks in the center console by the shifter I'd call it perfect....

    Nice stable. I see you ended up with black. How do you enjoy washing 4 cars every weekend? or do you have a gardener/yard boy that does the chores for you?

    lots of sandy shorts in thread. Welcome M5 and that camaro is solid. what are the wheel/tire setup on it?

    everyone will notice different things about various vehicles and just raw numbers dont tell the whole story when it comes to being comfortable doing it.

    I do most of the detail work myself but sometimes I get it hand washed near my office. Its not easy but I keep up with them and use the duster and spray wax every time I use it, takes 10 min tops and works great.

    Thanks. I also agree every test and youtube video is showing cars on the drag strip or closed race circuit. I honestly think this isn't a fair comparison to the average buyer or individual who has no time to track their cars. Numbers on paper and on the track don't measure up in real street driving and daily use. I would like to see a transition across the board for most comparison test on any high performance car on the street using data and driver feedback as the deciding factor.

    According to every video the CTSV = or best the M5 on the track and since I have both cars I pointed out how they are so different in feel and how each one excels over the other. Fact is there is no perfect car and all of them have shortcomings that is just reality but for GM to have been going through financial turmoil and still produce the Camaro and CTSV, ZR1 its really cool we had the opportunity to buy these vehicles given the circumstances. If GM was to hike the CTSV price 20-30k there is no doubt in my mind the car will kick the crap on every level of any other car out there hands down. if that was the case that might be the perfect car.

    I think now the aftermarket companies like D3 and others have a great market niche to make parts to improve on any shortcoming in the parts and design of these cars which makes tuning even more fun.
