    OK. So what color engine cover will it be???

    Alright. I looked at 2 different pics on Ebay of delivered black CTSV's. One has a silver engine cover, and the other has a black one. I would have assumed the black cars get black, and Light Platinum get the silver one. If my black one on order comes with a silver cover, i'm going to call GM and bitch. Wonder if the guy on the assembly line screwed up? Car and driver's musta matched cuz they would have bitched about that too.

    The silver cover you're seeing is probably the one on the 3.6L CTS.
    The CTS-V has a black carbon-fibre looking one. Every V I've looked over or read about has it.

    Of the 3 delivered V's I've seen pics of all have been grey (engine cover), on black cars. Some of the pre-prod cars I saw pics of had black. I'd prefer the black too.

    I can hunt down some pics in case anyone doesn't buy it's the V with grey cover.

    The V on ebay right now has a black cover on it. It says that its the actual car that is in his showroom right now. Here's the link. http://cgi.ebay.com/ebaymotors/ws/eB...tem=2458129285 Are these file photos? Why wouldn't the guy just snap new pics if its sitting right there?

    I believe those were file photos (but don't hold me to that) the last ebay link someone posted (maybe it was you?) in the Ebay V thread was of a V with Blk ext, tan int (with black doors WTF?), with a grey engine cover.

    As you can see in my collection of shots above there is even a silver car with the black (engine) cover...not sure what ever became of the black engine cover idea but it sure looks like it has gone...

    Inquiring Minds WANT TO KNOW! (Plus I want a glossy black engine cover too - even a carbon fibrey looking one!)
