Flew to Atlanta, got this 2011 coupe for $63k before fees and taxes... had 4k miles and has every option I can think of. First owner of vehicle... 3% interest... under MY name... not bad for someone who turned 21 a few weeks ago. Coming from a 2006 Mercedes CLS55 ///AMG... loving this car a lot more. Going for her first oil change tomorrow!!

Just powdercoated rims gloss black and painted calipers Lamborghini lime green.

Where can I get a LONGER iPod cord? It's a USB/AUX cord in one, the stock one that came with car is two inches long and makes it hard to text and drive ;)

Also, what's the part number on smoker's package FOR 2011 COUPE?

Has anyone done anything about the orange in the headlights? Considering baking them and doing something real soon...

Also, any thoughts about painting one or all of the colors in the V/Cadillac logo lime green?

Looking fresh! Texting and driving is a no no but you're definitely old enough to make your own decisions. You can get a longer wire at newegg.com or at your local best buy. But best buy overcharges everything.

Only one I found was: http://www.newegg.com/Product/Product.aspx?Item=N82E16855996357 and for $50 I find it way over-priced... I just bought an iPod female-to-male extension cable to go from Phone to cord... hopefully it will do the job. $4 on eBay.

And the texting and driving was a joke hence the smilie but seriously I need the phone in my lap so I can see who's calling me. Wish the phone transferred the name of the person somewhere instead of just a random number.

Does anyone else realize sometimes (noticed it with nav guiding me and satellite radio on) that the accept call bluetooth screen lags and doesn't come up for a few rings and I can't accept the call???

If you read the owners manual, it will tell you how to store names and numbers into the hard drive so that when your phone rings, the name will be displayed on the dash, not the number.

Seems like a lot of miles for the first owner...what's the cause of that?

On my '11 coupe (Blackberry bluetooth) names who are in my BB, it announces "call for me (my paired phone name) from Joe Blow" and there is an accept icon on the touch screen to push. It doesn't matter if XM or nav is on or both. If someone's not in my BB it just shows number on DIC and the accept icon on the TS.

At first I thought this post was a joke till I saw the pictures. Who complains on the internet about not being able to tex and drive?

don't like the lime green, way to ricer for me, but you are 12 years younger then I am and i remember what I liked at 21.

Pretty amazing for having it at 21. Keep the rubber side down.

I to am curious how you have so many miles on it. For a first owner at 4k to me it would be "used" and you overpaid.. but heck if your happy then who cares.


Smoker package? don't you just flick the butts and ash out like every other smoke I seem to have to follow?

At first I thought this post was a joke till I saw the pictures. Who complains on the internet about not being able to tex and drive?The smilie after my statement was to imply the sarcasm... Again... the reason I can't keep my phone in my console with the short cord is because my car does not display contact's names.

Also... 4k miles were put on by the owner of the dealership... it got my price down a little and I am the first registered owner... getting my interest rate down. If I didn't buy from this dealership I would have not been able to get the loan (no/low credit because of my age)... someone we knew at the dealership pulled some strings.

Actually, I like the lime green more than the yellow. Never liked yellow calipers on this car...
