Well, I made it back to a V after a two year wait. I had a 2005 CTS-V sedan and went this time with the coupe. Night and day between the two cars, I think the new V is simply awesome. Any long time member may remember me as GAGS-V (hence the new V2). I'm wondering how many are still here, and if the So/Cal V's still meet fairly often and where?

Congrats! You will love driving the coupe. I just got my V Coupe about 13 days ago and I love it everytime I look at it!

Riverside area. Where is everybody else at? Does the new group get together at all? We used to get together in Orange County a few times a year.

If you are in Riverside, do you go to Dutton for service? What is your experience with them? If not Dutton, where do you go?

The last meet I went to was down in Escondido. I did meet with the Turbo Buick club with some other CTS-V for a pizza run down to San Clemente.

I go a run with Motorgen every second Sunday of the month. This past Sunday we ran Mulholland Drive with about 60 cars. I think we are planning a run on GMR next month.

I am the only STS-V and we usually have 1 CTS-V.

When my car was closer to stock I took it to Mark Christopher in Ontario. I had a couple frustrating experiences with Dutton, and I know the owner!

The turbo Buick crowd is having a get together on Sat., 04-30-2011 in Huntington Beach. I am just waiting on final confirmation that I can invite the Cadillac CTS-V & STS-V crew. Stay tuned & I will post up on a new thread when I can.

Well, I don't know the owner but I know their sales department blows. I have heard their service department is good though. I want to bring it in because I think the steering sucks (low speeds, tight turns).

I look forward to getting together with the group again soon!
