How hard is it to find a 2009 CTS V w/ 6 speed? I don't need recaro seats but want the upgraded wheels and black/black.

Is anyone else having trouble finding one? And if anyone who has bought one wouldnt mind me asking if you paid sticker for it?

Thanks in advance.

Saluki:

Most of the V's that have been ordered as dealer inventory are automatics. I have checked around. I just ordered a black/black 6-speed (with Recaros) from Scott at Superior. I would check with him as he gets the allocation for these cars when many other dealers can't.

By the way, I paid GMS pricing, not sticker. You may want to check with Matt Reiland (see other posts) He was gracious enough to get me GMS.

Good luck.

Both the automatic and the manual transmission on the 2009 CTS-V have six forward speeds. If you want to distinguish between the two, it is necessary to specify more than the number of forward speeds.

Bentley-Cadillac in Huntsville, AL has a black on black M6 for 64,495 MSRP. They just got it yesterday and only thing missing is recaros and suade steering wheel & shifter. Not sure of your location. I passed on it.

Have 6 speed due in March 31 with Recaros and all the goodies. Did not pay list. 6 speeds are gone I believe as this may have been one of the last built.

yes I was referring to a 6 speed manual. I found one in Illinois but they are looking for sticker (black/black without recaro seats).

There's a 6-speed manual w/o Recaros at www.fitzmall.com in Annapolis, MD, but it's pearl red over black, which is a heck of a lot cooler in the summer and easier to keep clean. 19" wheels (the set with one width in front, wider in back). Nice car. About $67,000 sticker. Look at the Internet price - $62,000. The downside is that it has that damn huge, useless sunroof. Talk to Tom Asher.

Wonder what this dealership's 'reserve' is for this used blk/blk 09. E-bay link (http://cgi.ebay.com/ebaymotors/Cadillac-CTS-CTS-V-6-SPD-6-SPEED-with-Racaro-Seats-and-Navigation_W0QQitemZ160324367178QQcmdZViewItemQQpt ZUS_Cars_Trucks?hash=item160324367178&_trksid=p4506.c0.m245&_trkparms=72%3A317%7C65%3A12%7C39%3A1%7C240%3A1308 )

A little off topic but - I just noted in the pictures of that car on Ebay, some CD/DVD's that apparently came with the car. Is that normal? I just picked my v2 Friday, and no CD/DVD's, (or the large black box next to them), were part of my package .. ?

Rob,

The large black box your referring to in the pictures looks like the front license plate mount.

Yep - now that I look at it again, you are correct about the plate mount, (mine was already mounted by the dealer ... :ill:). But can anyone confirm that cd/dvd's are part of a new car package? If they are, I need to call the dealer and ask what happened to mine ... :annoyed:

RobThe only shiny disc I received was an On-Star demo, I believe. If by CD/DVD's you're referring to the other black squarish items in the same picture as the front license plate mount, those are the printed manuals--or is there another picture of said CD/DVD's?

The navigation system comes programmed for all of the US. The maps are on the hardfile, and no DVD is provided with a new car.

I think you are right - there is a front plate mount, the little case that holds the owner's manuals, key fobs, and the items that look like cd/dvd enclosures, are actually info. pamphlets.

Sorry for the distraction folks ...

:yup: Rob, Have you had much of a chance to put some miles on it

^^^ Not many - just the 20 miles or so to get er home on Friday, and today about 10 more learning the car. I'm taking it real easy until I get the check- engine light and inop tach problems checked out this coming week under warranty. That check-engine light stresses me out - don't want to do any damage. But the car seems to run great ... :hmm:
