    Any dealers want to take my order?

    I can't believe how hard it is to order this CTS. I can't get one dealer to call me back, another tells me that in order to get the 3.6L in 2005, I have to order one of the option packages. This is all running contrary to what I'm seeing on this board.

    Is the 3.6L CTS with the 6 speed manual available without an option package? Can I part out options in 2005, such as sport package, Sunroof, power seats and split rear seats? Is there anything definitive on pricing yet?

    My excitement and anticipation is rapidly turning to frustration and anger

    Hey, I will!

    Seriously, They may be confused since the 1SB package is now the "base" package. You can get a 1SB (base) with 3.6L without the Luxury Package, but with Sunroof, Sport Package, and split rear seat only (the passenger side power seat [with lumbar on both sides] is now only available in the PDL Luxury package). As for pricing, that is not released yet.

    I think one-way tickets into OKC are less than $200 right now .

    That was in '04. For 2005, the 3.2 is no longer, and the 3.6 is not matted to either a 5 speed auto or 6 speed manual. Later in the year they will have a 210hp 2.8L in a 1SA package that should be below $29,000 entry...

    Really?! Now that sounds good!

    Miscreant... Maybe you can help me... I have been looking for a preowned 03 CTS with Bose, Sunroof and Silver paint for the past few months...(preowned was within my current budget) Ugh... and the dealerships in the Metro Milwaukee area seem to not really car about my buisness and are not looking out there for me. They wanna sell me every other CTS, STS and everything else except the CTS I WANT!! LOL So, I am very frustrated! *this is why I hate car shopping!*

    Anywhooo... If I get this new job next week... I may just order a new one. Can I order an 05 CTS, say, in the next week or two? (I heard somewhere the 04 model year production has ended or will end soon). I just want silver, sunroof, and Bose....lol Thats all... I dont care about everything else.

    I do have the suppliers discount... and was wondering how much this would set me back.

    '05 is the perfect model year to get. Yes, 05 is open, 04 has been closed. For the '05 model year you can get the base model (which is now the 1SB) with just bose and sunroof - where in 04 you had to get the luzury package to get the sunroof. As for pricing, It's not out yet. When it is, I'll gladly let you know what supplier would be.

    Re: Any dealers want to take my order?

    Miscreant - Have they released any specs on the 2.8 yet? I have also heard that the CTS with the 2.8 will start under $30k to compete with the BMW 325. When will prices be released? What do you think will happen to the price of a base CTS with the 3.6? Will it stay about the same or do you think Cadillac will raise it quite a bit?

    Re: Any dealers want to take my order?

    Has there been any word on the base MSRP for the 2005 models yet? With the addition of the 1SB package, does that mean a 5k increase to the prices?

    I do not think the price will go up that much. The contents of the 1SB are no longer standard. They all become optional - they basically have just re-coded the base 3.6 CTS as the 1SB. Prices should be released soon?

    I know of a good dealer outside of philly in doylestown, its called Fred Beans its at 611 and 313 if you need a name to contact let me know. A buddy of mine bought a used Monte there and he said the car gave him problems but the service was unmatched.

    Those are the clowns who haven't bothered to call me back, after 4 emails, and 3 phone calls from me. Honest to go*, I am a Guarenteed sale, and this guy won't give me the time of day.
