    The CTS has more remarkable styling, although I do like the LS grill.
    Right. Like I said, the 3.6L is faster than the 280hp 3.9L V8. We'll be getting the one with 252hp.

    That's a LSE.

    Well, went to go drive it today, took some pics. Overall it's good. Driving wise, it's no comparison to the CTS. The CTS drives WAY better. Going to look at another one 2morrow, then I'll choose between the 2.

    I had an 01 LS V8 sport before my CTS.

    The LS does not have the feel of the CTS. Its ultimate ability is HIGH (braking, conrnering) but it feels so numb you don't know it or explore it often.

    Also, the auto trans in my car was TERRIBLE. You could not select first gear use the manual shifting gate from a stop. It would hunt gears and had very inconsistent downshifts.

    A real find, IMO, would be a 2000 V6 MANUAL LS. That is a unique and rare car. I would like one of these to do some serious mods on - it would be a real sleeper!
