My grin may be permanent. I look forward to reading up on the cars in the forums and hope I avoid annoying noob questions. I've owned it just 24 hours now...

I upgraded from a 2004 GTO and traded in an 07 Escalade. This car feels like the best of both, only much more power and fun. I'll miss my GTO's toys, and already started thinking about what I could/should do w/ the CTS-V.

I have the Thunder Gray Sedan, loaded w/ Recaro seats and sunroof.

If you don't mind sharing, how much did you pay for it? I am in the market for a coupe or sedan, although leaning toward the coupe. Trying to get a feel for he market. Thanks.

I'm bowing, thats just over the top cool. I've got a few collector items most noteworthy (Hulk issue #181 mint). I've got nothing like that.

AWESOME RIDE

hey Gnarly, you car did come with Premium Care Maintenance, right? since it's a 2011 it should have free oil changes, cabin and engine air filter replacements and tire rotations while under warranty

just wondering if they talked that up during the sale

Yes, I believe we covered it. Was a great buying experience, actually. I'll make sure to leverage the Premium Care - its a nice benefit.

Hulk 181's a great book. Have a few myself. a CGC 9.6 and two 9.4s. Probably sell a couple to help pay for my new V.

BTW, what did you end up paying for your V, if you don't mind me askin'?

Paid alot. :) 1k under MSRP. 1st V they've sold w/out markup over MSRP here. They've been selling for 5k over. However, I did two trade ins on two very nice vehicles. We upped the trade values quite a bit and it covered a good bit of taxes. So you can't really look at the $ I paid, given the $ involved in the other parts of the negotiation. I made out on my Escalade trade in! We all went away happy.

Thanks for info. Looks like an awesome car. I test drove a cts-v coupe today, and liked it a lot. Now the dilemma-- cts-v coupe (or sedan) versus corvette.
