No doubt. BlkRvn/Ebony leath. w/ cashmere accents. Snrf/Nav/PremiumWhls. This thing looks incredible. I'd posted a few days ago trying to gauge out pricing before I squeezed off. I think I did good. Originally I'd ordered the BlkRvn/Eb. combo. Yet b4 the paperwork was completed, a salesman inadvertently bought this combo w/ the cashmere inserts. I fell hard for it right on the spot. Especially since it was optioned otherwise exactly how I wanted. Those light colored seat inserts really make the interior pop. Can't wait to get thru the break-in so I can stand on it hardcore. First thing I wanna do is make visual mods. Anybody blacked out the grill yet, or the chrome strips around the windows? Thats a 1st priority for me. I'll address the performance side of things as I accumulate some gentle miles. I've probably not had the thing north of 2000RPM yet. I look forward to being in here and learning a lot and contributing where possible. Pix to follow.:cloud9:

Welcome to the club.

Look for Razorecko's posts, he blacked out the grille and trim along with a couple of others.

- Almost there, did the wheels, trim, the grill is still left blank as i'm undecided on what kind of black to go with :D - hopefully by the end of the summer

Sweet car! Congrats on a beautiful car. I was smitten with BMW M cars...still do have a fondness for them, but, this car is so ridiculous in terms of power, handling, interior quality and good looks, Nubering track record holder, track proven and the fact that it spanked the M5 (see the YouTube version; CTS-V vs M5) that it was absolutley too hard to turn away from this American gem.

In short. This ain't your grandparents Cadillac. (Oh, it could be)

Do you need a car like this..probably not. Do you want a car like this? Absolutley!!

Enjoy! I know you will.

In my case it is, I just became a grandfather for the first time, I'm 68. Grandma drives it to work. :thumbsup: :D :D

Welcome to the world of "V". Hope you enjoy your car as I do mine!

My daughter is getting married september 5th and we are hoping they choose to have kids soon. Perhaps it won't be long till I am a grandpa running the roads in a "V".
