I will be picking up a used 2011 soon. It took a while to find a loaded one.
Since I went to the CTS track event last summer at Monticello racetrack I have been wanted it.
Not sure if I got the best possible deal. It is thunder gray with 10k miles, automatic and loaded. The price is $56,500.

That sounds like one I was looking at. Does it have the titanium color interior?

yes, it must be the same one I don't like that color for seats but its not that bad.
They would not go down to 55k I got only 500 off.
I figure a 2011 is better to get then a 2009 its worth a little extra.

If it was a used car dealer in PA near Philly, then yup, same one. They are a little excessive with emails. I told them several times I wasn't interested at $57k when I just passed on one with 3k miles for $58k. I guess they weren't hearing that after I made them take pics after no info was posted. I spoke to a few different people there so hopefully they didn't think 4 people were interested to not give you a better deal. Haha. Supposedly they are a 'no-haggle' dealer though.

PS. Which salesman did you deal with?

Nope, I didn't deal with him. 2 other guys couldn't even be bothered to check the real color interior. One even said it didn't have Recaro's. The other said it was gray. But Sheena was very nice and professional, even took pics for me and literally did them within a half hour.

But I guess you being there was the reason why they blew up my email trying to make me call and come in. Haha.

They still have it listed around everywhere, but I don't think anybody else is going to pay their asking price.
PS. Why didn't you like the Red 2010 loaded in MA?

I just saw that listing. The red color is my least favorite color. Also it's one year older so I figure the 2011 is better. The 2011 has a in-service date of 12/18/10. Also the dealer with the 2011 would not take a deposit from me.

Okay, just curious. I have the same mentality about the 2010 vs 2011. But I'm the opposite in color, I'd take Red exterior over titanium interior. You're in the interior more than you see the exterior. The Red is really growing on me already. But don't let me sway you! Haha.
