just thought i'd introduce myself to the members here. I just bought a 2008 CTS w/ 3.6L DI. 1st Cadillac i've owned, I had my '93 LT1 corvette for about 7 years so let's just say the CTS is certainly a different experience than what I've been used to. Looking forward to learning about the car though.

Out with the old:

Personally, if the back seats weren't an issue. I would have kept the 'Vette. Times and needs do change and I realize that. Good luck with the CTS! :)

did you add that rear fender flare or was that part of a special package?

i can see its required to fit that massive tire (beast!) under it and it doesnt look bad

You'll be surprised how quickly you get used to driving a more luxurious car. Get back in a 'Vette 6 months from now, and you'll wonder how you ever did it. :D

Congrats, and welcome. :wave:

yeah, it was about that time. I had lots of fun with the car over the years, but not very practical for me any more.
