You think a 19" rim with a rear tire size of 285/35 is small?

Despite this car's fantastic performance numbers, it is not a sports car, it's a sedan.

If somebody wanted a 'slammed' look, lowering the car to one's liking can easily be done. I'm not sure I would want to be replacing front fascias.

SRT8s are sedans and they've had 20" rims since 2005. I think the SRT8 wheels give the car a nice look, not necessarily a 'slammed' look.

Well, heck........if it's too quick you could always rip out the factory cold air intake and substitute an aftermarket underhood hot air intake (chrome, naturally, 35 hp at idle), replace the wheels with 24's for better handling, install slotted and drilled rotors for better stopping in a 12 mph traffic jam, hack off the mufflers and go to a set of low-restriction fart-cans, line the frame rails with blue neons, glue some vents to the upper front fenders, and install some 6-electrode plugs for at least another 40 hp.

From time to time the purveyors of high end automobiles and high end audio equipment encounter customers that claim to hear sounds from their recent purchase that no one else can hear. For years this has been ascribed to either an overactive imagination or extremely sensitive hearing, also known in the audio industry as "rabbit ears".
The latest research has debunked this, however. It appears that the real reason is that the the afflicted party has an empty space in their head that is resonating at the frequency of the perceived sound. Thus, if the complaint is about a very high pitched sound, the cavity is very small. In the case of the very low pitched, low RPM, exhaust note complaint the size of the cavity must be truly enormous.

What's for the CTS-V is that it's cheaper and possibly more fun it being a RWD. The RS6 is faster, heavier, AWD and possibly safer buy since Audi isn't in the type of crisis GM is. Although that is not the ultimate decider.

On the RS6 I'm getting a really good price, such good price I can probably own it for a year and sell it and go break even. It's a little "special" deal that I've accomplished between me and Audi Sweden (the main corp.).

Anyway, what ya all think of the new 09 RS6 Sedan? I've atleast sat in one at Audi Forum in Stockholm where they show off all the latest modells. This one was in white and blacked out with titanic look on the 20" rims. Got some pics for ya.

It's a simply stunning car in person. It's huge. Pictures just don't make this car justice, just like the CTS-V.

I'm not sure where you get that the RS6 is faster than the V2. I can't find any place on the web that shows the RS6 is faster at 0-60, quarter-mile or top speeds. Here's a few of the posts I did find that show that it is not as fast as a V2:

It's a cool car and it definitely has a launch advantage with AWD but I think it gets owned on a track (based on what I've heard / read).

01-07-09, 10:40 AM
What the hell, i don't mean to write "faster". And now I can't edit my first post!! Sorry. I don't care really if the CTS-V is faster either. They are both FAST ENOUGH :D OK?

And it surely is not a track car either. But I have an A5 3.0TDI tuned to 300hk and it has the same type of AWD and I can push the car pretty good. Stompt it and I power slide out of turns. (max speed around 60 for that though!!).

I meant more to get opinions on the look and quality of the car. I think Audi is ahead still. The interior is just spot on. Although I can't say I dislike the CTS-V either. The new interiors cadillac shows us through the CTS-V is a huge step up on quality and looks.

The reason I ask is because one's geographical location can be a major influence on such a purchasing decision. If I lived over there and could get "a hell of a deal" on the new RS6 sedan, I might give it serious consideration. The vehicle certainly doesn't suck, and the possibility GM could go under and my access to repairs and parts on a newly designed American imported car would have to weigh in on the decision.

Pricing wise approximately how much can you get the RS6 for vs the cost of the imported 09 CTS-V ?

I was about to write basically the same thing. Everyone I work with that owns an Audi (except for the A4, which probably accounts for 90% of Audi sales) is constantly complaining about thier dealer and service. You can look online and read review after review about how people love the car but hate the ownership experience (sound familliar, GM?).

And the V2 owns the RS6 in just about every performance category, although I acknowledge that it gets around the track faster through brute force rather than finesse.

I've always said that Audi never uses one part when three will do the job, even before I bought our '02 S6 Avant.



BTW, the V will absolutely punish the R in any category (except maybe 60ft times)


The biggest knock on Audi S and RS cars - my S6 does nothing to dispel this - is wooden suspension tuning. Audi just doesn't know when to stop when it comes to spring rate.

The decent-road ride of our S6 isn't bad, but when you get on a secondary highway with a little broken pavement, the ride goes to hell and the rear end hops around like it's got a stick-axle.

I know German secondary roads (well, all roads, really) tend to be in better condition than most of the world (what Caltrans lays down as brand-new pavement the Germans would immediately post as 'strassenschaden' and start repaving) but Ingolstadt ain't all that far from Munich, and my M5 has no such problems, it stays pretty well composed no matter the road.

A survey of road tests seems to indicate that the present RS4 seems to do better, but the S5 and RS6 revert back to traditional Audi concrete-filled shocks.

Swedie
01-07-09, 12:43 PM
I'm aware that the RS6 of course won't be getting blessings in a CTS-V forum, but I can agree with you that the RS6 might just be spanked by the CTS-V. I'd love to have the same AWD in the RS6 as in the R8. Now that would be a killer of a car! If that would happen you can as with the CTS-V stomp it and the rear end would go out, still pushing forward and make a good lap time... rather than understeering like newer AWD systems from Audi does... all for the best safety of course, but hey.. lap times matter too :D

I'm awaiting my testdrive of the RS6 Avant. It's about 50kg heavier than the Sedan but I'm sure that won't be something noticable. Tests of the RS6 sedan show 4.1 sec 0-100 (0-62).

I think the sound of the RS6 is better than the CTS-V though. The CTS wines a lot from the supercharger while the RS6 rumble of the V10 with twin turbo is for me a better "noise" =]

Oh yeah, there's that, too.

Ford...don't get me started. They spent ten years on my wife's "no effin' way ever again" list.

When we had our Q45 the dealers were not at all shy about spending Nissan's money; you sometimes wondered if they had a staff of wipers in the restrooms. Of course, the car was on its fourth transmission by the time we got rid of it...but the service experience kept Infiniti off my wife's no-go list.

The local BMW store is good, but they don't coddle you. Things get fixed, but (unless you buy a 7) you only get a loaner under specific conditions. Still, they're close, they've been fairly easy to deal with, and they've dealt with the unusual (an AC whistle in the M5 dash that required incremental remove-dash-parts-65mph-test-drives-lather-rinse-repeat) well.

My Audi service experiences feel a lot more like trying to deal with Ford. Lots of comebacks, lots of "could not find the problem", they fix one thing and screw something else up. I know there's decent independents out there, but right now Aud's on MY no-go list as far as anything new enough to be under warranty.

Swedie
01-07-09, 01:08 PM
That sounds like a local issue with Audi rather than something Global. I've had all out positive experience with Audi so far. But surely you and a certain sales person might just not get along that well. Then change. About pricing, I'm gonna ask what the service costs are for the RS6. I bet it's a lot.

My gut says stick with my A5 for now. But my penis says go for the RS6. lol sorry. I just love fast fast fast cars. I want a fast car with good quality and a car that's a good every day user that can also bring a bunch of people and maybe a little junior (in a year or so).

That's a two way street though, Euro cars are more focused on revs. You cant find any american made cars that rev to 8k plus RPM. And while they don't make a lot of torque, driving a car that rev's that high is nothing short of bliss.

High revs are addicting, so let me warn you if you try it, it makes a lot of difference in that you dont need all the torque. This also allows smoother power application on the track as well.

01-09-09, 10:09 PM
I like both, but to answer the question. Although, the standard CTS grill looks bigger the fact it narrows as you get to the lower section, while the V has a HUGE lower opening makes the standard CTS grill too SMALL to get enough air to help out the heat exchanger for the super charger intercooler system. I am sure you could get something look more LIKE the standard cts grill to work, but hard to say what it would cost or if it would look any better to you than stock. Standard CTS opening switch to wire mesh wasn't enough. The mesh isn't even wire any more. It's a formed plastic mesh with better airflow capabilities than actual wires.

It is possible if you redesigned the heat exchanger setup to be like three separate heat exchangers that you could get a look VERY close to standard CTS, but with EXTRA holes somewhere else with heat exchangers behind them you could get the same capability at a cost higher than what Caddy wanted to spend. One heat exchanger system will always be cheaper than a multiple exchanger system of the same capability.

Sure it would be quite spendy to come up with something though. If you could get something that satisfied you with a modded standard CTS bumper and standard heat exchangers you might pull something off without TOO much investment though. Would need a very capable fabricator to pull it all off for you though.

I'm in no way saying the OP possesses an "assclown" mentality. That should be clarified.

Rather, I'm intrigued at the thought of an '09 CTS-V admirer reverting to a "regular CTS" mindset.

It's a very strange thought amongst these parts...

Well, I remember reading something here that the CTS-V grille is unique in that it is metal.

Most cars you see on the road have plastic grilles, while the V-Series all have metal grilles.

For whatever reason, I found this interesting. Almost like a V-Series "trademark".

In the '03-'07 CTS forums, you'll find countless threads of owners that desire that same look. And I've personally seen dozens of non-V badged CTS vehicles on the road with the V-mesh grille. It's a look that is desired.

it just reminds me so much of the old cts. Dont get me wrong on the older V's i thought it looked AMAZING compared to the regular 07 & prior CTS. It was basically an update of that grille.

Here it doesn't seem like an update of the 08 grille, it seems like an update of the V1 grille - where I'd like to see it as an update of the 08 grille. The new cts-v is simply amazing. If it just had a front end that I don't think would cost me thousands to replace because I wouldn't be happy with it...I'd be all over it. It really sucks :( Have you guys seen the front end off the cts from SEMA? now that's a nice front end for the V.

I feel like the V2 front end is so damn rigid, i hate to say it but it almost looks like some teenager put a body kit on it. I really hope the 2010 makes the change, I found some people using google that had the same comments I did about the new front end so I must not be the ONLY assclown :)

I wouldn't say this should be the V2's front end...but this guy definitely is making a step in the right direction:

I for one am glad that they didn't "slightly update" the 08 CTS grill to make the V2 grill. The V is a totally different car then a CTS and deserves more body differences IMO. One of the few things I wasn't crazy about on my V1 is the fact that other then the badging and the front end, there's not so many cosmetic differences from the outside (not counting minor differences like lug pattern and rear bumper). The V2 has the hood, front end, back end as well as slightly more flared wheelwells and badging...you KNOW from a ways away that its not a regular CTS. I'm just saying that I like the fact that the front is considerably different. Gives the car more character. Changing the front end to a CTS front end would be pretty damn counterproductive in my opinion :cookoo:

It wouldn't be too difficult. That modification would cost about $2957.And since the hood of the V2 has outer creases that start on the front clip, you'll have to replace the hood and it can't be with a CTS hood so you'll have to go with an aftermarket powerdome.

No issues with that here. I've always actually prefered the CTS Sport grille over the V grille, but I'm not really into doing cosmetic mods, so I'll stick with my V grille.

Then again, I de-badged my V because I don't like the attention.

During my long wait for my ordered V2, I've read, and re-read the brochure on CTS-V's that the dealer so kindly gave me as I left the dealer to begin my long wait, and it says that the V2 edition has, in fact, stainless steel grills.

This is true. I have the car, they are cast stainless steel, not plastic. It's not a mesh like you've seen before, but a solid cast design. To add my two cents worth, I think the V2 grill is a marked improvement over the look of the standard CTS. IMO, the plastic cross pieces on the standard CTS look cheap.

Didn't say uglier, but functionality would dictate that they needed the added airflow of a more open design. The V2 grill allows much more air than the pics posted. but, to be clear, I think the V2 is brilliant! front-end included.

Like GMX said, it's not steel, at least not on the V2s I looked at. I was told they went to plastic because it weighs less, is cheaper and looks like steel.

I haven't tested the magnetic properties of my grill, but the plastic grills of my 2 neighbors CTSs flex at finger touch. The V2 does not flex like plastic. It's solid. I'll get some magnets tomorrow and begin testing. I'm not sure that in the design process of the V2 that the cost of the grill was the issue.

I'm just saying that it's cheaper to make. I remember an article that said one main benefit is that it's lighter... It's definitely solid and it looks good so I don't even care about what it's made of.

p.s. if you read those and really did write that to hang up over the word significant, you are truly a douche.

If you thing that only the upper portion of a grille counts, than yes, the CTS has a larger grill. If you understand that the entire front-fascia of the car constitutes the grill, you will see that the V2 has a much larger area for air-flow.

The other quotes you posted had very little do do with it. Some anonymous person saying they "much prefer the grille of the standard CTS" and "prefer an even bolder version of the standard grill" don't really matter.... If you could actually determine then they were posted (January 2008), you could see that it was 11 months before a production model was actually made and anyone that commented in that thread touched (or actually saw) one.


And the other quotes you sent were preferences of people who have probably never seen the car in person.. I've seen the car....I've driven the car....I've owned the car..

If you want to call Douche....you are Summer's Eve... You are vinegar and water....

I'm really not interested in name calling. I'm trying to help people who are thinking about buying the best sedan ever made.


If you can send any links that happened in the last 11 months it would help....otherwise I have a few links from the Cadillac Allante that I could offer up as evidence........

The media kit just mentions changes to the grill openings, hood, and front and rear fascias; also the published widths and tracks for both cars are exactly the same. If the tracks are the same, all the extra tire width has got to be towards the centerline of the car, no?

Maybe it's just me, but I absolutely hate the whole black and grey look of the interior of the 09 CTS-V. Black is fine, don't get me wrong, but it just seems as if the suade (especially on the steering wheel...what is that?) should be an aftermarket product... afterall, Cadillac is a luxury brand, and it seems as if the CTS-V would have the same luxurious feel as the regular CTS with the wood trim rather than this cheap, grey... suade :thumbdown:
I'm in the market for a CTS-V, but might have to change my decision if there's no way that the dealer can install the wood trim that the regular CTS has. The suade/black combo makes the interior look cheap... same factor that turned me away from the new Dodge Challenger :ack:

I'm not a huge fan of the only two interior colors also. I want cashmere (gold) which is available in the Cts but not the V. Not a huge fan of the football laces all over the dash too, but I understand it's GM's theme right now like in the ZR1. I'm sure once one's in the driveway I'll grow into it. But I really like the suEde inserts.

Black is fine, don't get me wrong, but it just seems as if the suade (especially on the steering wheel...what is that?)This car is all about refined performance, and an Alcantara suede steering wheel fits right into this theme. You'll find them in a lot of other high performance applications. It's optional, so if you don't like it, don't order it. The stock leather wheel won't have wood either though (but you will after driving the car :D)

Maybe it's just me, but I absolutely hate the whole black and grey look of the interior of the 09 CTS-V. Black is fine, don't get me wrong, but it just seems as if the suade (especially on the steering wheel...what is that?) should be an aftermarket product... afterall, Cadillac is a luxury brand, and it seems as if the CTS-V would have the same luxurious feel as the regular CTS with the wood trim rather than this cheap, grey... suade :thumbdown:
I'm in the market for a CTS-V, but might have to change my decision if there's no way that the dealer can install the wood trim that the regular CTS has. The suade/black combo makes the interior look cheap... same factor that turned me away from the new Dodge Challenger :ack:

Anyone agree or am I just overreacting?You want wood in a 556hp super sedan? No wonder you're freaking out about the alcantra wheel. Go buy a DTS...


The interior kicks ass and the alcantra gives it that extra performance edge...

I see no problem offering a wood steering wheel, or even better a carbon fiber wheel. No worse than having ventilated seats, navigation, heated seats, and a panoramic glass roof that adds a lot of weight to the car. I don't hear any complaints about those nice things.

Something like this would be nice. I wouldn't necessary pick wood, but I like the grip of wood steering wheels, which more is due to the coating.

Just my .02, but I think I'm the only person in the world that doesn't like the glossy-black "piano" lacquer of the center stack. I'd much rather see polished aluminum trim instead.

But I'm stuck in '06 world, so it's not like I'm a player :)

After being in a couple different Vs, I have only one real complaint of the interior and its colors: When I order a black interior, I want the interior to be: BLACK! I don't want the upper half of the interior (A-pillars, B-pillars, ceiling panel, et al) to be gray. They should be black.

Just my opinion. :-)

And furthermore, you spend more time on the inside of the car when it's in use. Maybe I'm different, but I care about what my interior looks like in a 67k car. ESPECIALLY in a Cadillac. Love the exterior though (especially the mesh grill).

Matter of fact, I'd be okay with the regular CTS's interior with V logos here and there. The black/grey/suade (imo) only looks good with the black, grey, or silver exteriors.

Now if GM was going for the more safe feel with the suade, good idea in my opinion. I'd just rather have the option to have other interior choices with the matching suade.

The interior is second to none in my opinion...I am looking at an 09 M5 or the 09 V, and the BMW interior is dog crap next to the V. If you get all the toys(Recaros, Sunroof, NAV, and Suede steering and shifter) the interior is that of a $100K car. My only complaint is the faux grey Carbon Fiber. It should have been piano black just like the center console or real CF. But, I think GM has remedied the situation, because I heard they will offer Black Sapele Wood as an option in the upcoming months to replace the faux Carbon Fiber. That should look great.

No wood steering wheel! Hate to be picking wood splinters out of head, hands, and gut after a head-on collision!

When the 330i came out back in 03 my buddy picked one up. Had the Alcantra wear off the wheel under warranty and had it replaced. Then bought leather and sold the fake stuff!

You don't want black lacquer interior either. Unless you carry a can of Lemon Pledge and a feather duster like bigjim does! :)

No doubt that the BMW has the crappiest interior for the price on the market. The CTS-V's works because of the endless compliments on the CTS's interior, but I guess I'm one of the few that just isn't a fan of the dull looking grey and black.

After owning several Corvettes, I can say the CTS-V interior is far nicer and more luxurious.

How can anyone say that the interior of the CTS-V is not upscale or that the color schemes aren't up to par?

I don't understand how some can come on here and make asinine statements like that.

If anyone feels that the CTS-V is not adequate, they can go buy another car. If you don't like the CTS-V, DON'T BUY ONE!

Last time I checked my CTS-V, it has a carbon fiber looking cabin with a shiny black center stack along with the Cadillac cut and sew door panels and dash.

What is this dull crap I keep reading here?

Maybe it's just me, but apart from the dash (which I feel is the color the whole cabin should be), I just feel that the suade/grey ruins an interior that could've been all black.
Sorry if you don't agree with me, but at least I feel that I'm entitled to my opinion.

TaVern
01-26-09, 12:12 AM
And your opinion you shall be entitled to.

The interior looks fast and sexy (much like myself). Very much performance-minded.

I guess the cabin could have matched the dash a bit more. However, I like how everything accents itself.

Your mileage may vary.

xx_baddycaddy_xx
01-26-09, 12:20 AM
What would've been nice is if the pop-up nav screen was the same shiny black as the dash rather than that ugly grey color.
And not too concerned with the mileage, despite it being 12/18. If I were to be that concerned with mileage I wouldn't dare get anything with 556 hp :cool2:

Anyone who prefers mileage over performance is more than likely driving a Toyota or a Honda.

It sounds like I'm in the minority here, but to me, the Suede/Alcantera looks like it belongs in Huggy Bears pimp mobile! I understand the reason on the wheel for better grip and stuff and can see your point, but it still looks out of place to me! I will admit though, that I haven't seen it in person though and might think that it looks better then..........We'll see!

Cadillac just can't get it right, huh? They go all out to make the best performance sedan on earth and then they get villified for making it the best performance sedan on earth because SWAYDE is too different.

It's different for a purpose BIATCHES! Deal with it or just order it without F*CKING SWAYDE!
