    this is the 5mt option for the 3.6 we've been talking about right? why are they $1200 more???

    on nissan, they charge around 1k more for an auto trans... i never did understand that, and i dont understand this now... is it based on demand?

    Not 5mt. 5 MT stands for 5 speed Manual Transmission.

    Nothing I could say will justify the $1200 for auto, but in most cases that I can think of, and auto costs more in a car - autos are typically more expensive than manuals - the AISIN is a good, cheap manual 6 speed. But keep in mind, the automatic has always cost $1200, even in 2003.

    I could be wrong, but I believe the DOT requires cars with HIDs to be auto-leveling. Many manufactures put automatically leveling headlights in their cars. Since Cadillac does not have this, I believe the load leveling suspension counts, which is only available with the sport package...

    I could defiantly be wrong though….

    Re: 2005 CTS pricing...

    heres what the PDX package is...

    Sport Suspension w/Rear Load Leveling System, Painted Aluminum Wheels, (4) P225/50WR17 Tires, StabiliTrak, Performance Brake Linings & Variable Assist Power Steering.

    it just says rear load leveling. why in the world do you need this crap to get the hid's?

    it is very annoying.

    I haven't been able to crack into a HID housing, but the GM parts system LISTS a leveling module as part of the HID headlight system. Also, the PDX package is available with the load-leveling delete option.

    The TT6 is the least requested option on the CTS since it's intro. In 2003, you could only get it in the 1SB or 1SC, then in 2004 it was no longer a freeflow option and was only available with the 1SC package. Now in 2005 Cadillac offers almost everything as freeflow, but the TT6 is only available with the PDX most likely because most people wanting the TT6 want the PDX package (the sport group). I deffinitely see that. Most people who would even know about what HID headlamps are probably would also be interested in the Sport Package...The 2005 ordering sceme is MUCH better than it's been for customers. Now you can get a 6 speed, PDX Sport Package, Navigation, and HID headlamps all together without being forced to get anything else!

    Actually, the '04 GTO is "friggin ugly". Nobody has seen the promised exterior styling improvements for '05 yet. Dual-dual exhuast, hood scoops, sunroof, etc.

    It will have around 385 HP vs the CTS' 255 HP, while costing slightly less than a CTS. The rags say it's interior is GM's best in terms of seat comfort and the materials do look high quality. Not that the CTS is uncomfortable or cheap.

    GTO - Great interior, powertrain, bland styling (which is good as it doesn't stick out to the highway patrol) and then I popped the trunk and saw the fuel tank taking up half of it. What a cheapo solution to meet US regulations.

    So ended up having to settle for a CTS-V.

    If you want a boy-racer muscle car get the GTO. If you want style and class, get the big V6 CTS with a stick.
