Greetings all! Just traded in my 2008 TBSS for a new 2010 CTS 3.0L AWD. The class/style/sophistication upgrade from Chevy to Cadillac is matched only by the downgrade in power from the 400+ hp bolt-ons/stalled 6.0L V8 in my TBSS to the stock 3.0L V6 of the CTS. All-in-all, I'm VERY happy with the change. I've been eyeballin' the CTS since its makeover in 2008. I think Cadillac nailed it with this car.

:welcome: to the forums. Congratulations on your new Cadillac. The TBSS is a cool truck, but the style points of the CTS far exceed the TB. :cool2:

Welcome! The car looks great, and man your truck was sick.

Welcome! The car looks great, and man your truck was sick.

Thank you! I miss the feel good pedal on my truck. 400+ hp AWD with a 3200 stall got me to 60 in a hurry, but guzzled a lot of gas in the process. I've already got my eyes on a chrome mesh grille and some TSW 19" wheels for the CTS though. The Cadillac is making it difficult to miss the TBSS too much.
