    Re: The 1st Gen CTS-V or the 2nd Gen cts

    Yeah, from the outside I love my car and I get comments on my "chicken-wire grill"(thank you Mr. Kia Driver-Man), I prefer it even over the gen 1 CTS-V grill.

    On the inside the stereo/controls just feel old and it lacks any real connectivity though(Bluetooth, USB, even Aux input). I haven't seen a gen 1 with navigation, so it might just be my car. The giant orange alarm clock letters don't do it for me and they juuuust about freeze at -25*C or so. I start up and the numbers kind of bleed on to the screen.

    Re: The 1st Gen CTS-V or the 2nd Gen cts

    I have never had one negative comment about my car. I get random "nice car/ride" comments every day.

    I love the interior also, I have embroidered headrest and rearset also. I ran my own aux input. The navi looks nice in the first gen but I had to go with the sport which does not have the navi.

    Do you cruise, or do you drive hard? Do you highly value a widely lauded interior and exterior design or is a V8 and a great setup more important?

    You could get the NAV with the Sport package. It was the Appearance package and the Performance package that you couldnt get the NAV with. The V handled the TPMS info in the insrument cluster. The V6 handled the TMPS in the DIC. As we knw the DIC gets deleted when you option the NAV.

    I think the 1st gen V grill is horribly tacky. Tonnes of chrome, the chrome trim around the mesh is much too thick. The front end of the 1st gen V looks almost as cheap as the base model. The only place you see that much chrome anymore is on pickups and PepBoys/CanadianTire specials...

    Whichever package I have(wheel perf as far as I can tell) has the best of the gen 1 grilles imo, although there's a color matched red 3.2 around town now and it looks really clean.

    Courtesy of Google(not my car, but same grille, same colour:

    Seen a pearl white gen 1 CTS-V driving past RMC yesterday; beautiful car, but the grill is over the top. The one above or a color-match is a lot more appealing, to me at least.

    I agree. That being said, a body-colored V grill can be quite appealing.
    IMO, Sport Grill is the best looking. Body colored base or V grill is the 2nd best. 3rd would be unpainted base grill.

    If you saw a White gen 1 V, it was either repainted or a V6 with V appearance parts. The gen 1 V was available in black, red, silver, and 2 different greys. It wasnt available in white.

    Re: The 1st Gen CTS-V or the 2nd Gen cts

    I'd chose a newer cts over an 06/07 v. I'm not a fan of stick shifts to be honest, never have been. When I bought mine back in 09 I actually chose my 06 lux package 3.6 with 19k miles over an 05 v with 51k miles. The v was only $1k more but I didn't enjoy driving it not to mention 32k more miles, If I had bought the v it would have like 82k miles on it now.
