    Good news for '05 6 speed...

    Initial constraints on the 2005 model does not include the 6 speed! It will be available at start of production. Some of the new colors are on constraint though (Moonstone, White Diamond, Light Platinum, Sand Storm).

    Now, the first order scheduling cycle for the base CTS started yesterday. These will be the first 05 production.

    I was told that the 6 speed is not yet available for 05, but I'm calling back very soon.

    miscreant is up the only up to the minute gm insider guy I know, and I bet that today's dealers are a little slow on knowledge of any change in the system. They just want to sell cars fast, and they want to sell what's on the lot.

    Miscreant, I thought for 05 Caddy was dropping White Daimond from the whole line. I was talking with a a GM rep a the NY Auto Show and he said they were going with some new white. Something were it has a red tint in sunlight and a blue tinit when reflecting in the moon light. Was he just blowing smoke? What will Moonstone look like?

    Moonstone is a metallic charcoal which is currently available on the SRX.

    The White Diamond is still an issue. About half of our material shows 93U White Lightning (currently on the 04 Deville and Seville) as the new color, but then the most recent indicators is that it will be 98U White Diamond...

    I think the main reason that White Diamond is on constraint is that they perhaps have not decided yet...? JMHO.

    Personally I think Cadillac had it backwards with the White Lightning color. Most Deville/seville customers do not like the White Lightning, it's too "iridesent" for them - the White Lightning would look so much better on the CTS and appeal to the CTS buyer more....

    Thanks, I know your the expert and figured you would have a educated answer for me rather than just a guess or rumor.
