: How to track down a used V2 ?

Looking for some advise from the group.

I have been looking for a V2 for over about a year now, and have had no luck. I am picky, so that doesn't help.

Additional resources would be appreciated. I have been looking daily (or with query tools) at Craigslist, Auto Trader, Cars.com, & Ebay.

What I'm looking for is :

Used V2 with < 20K Miles
Manual
Silver or Gray exterior
Recaro Seats
No UltraView

Any suggestions on how to search would be welcome.

Thanks,

Ron

Those are the EXACT specs I'm looking for although I can live with the UltraView. Good luck man, but I hope I find mine first haha.

I want black interior too.

I sent you a PM with info on one I found. I think I have another pair, but can't track them down at the moment.

All those sedans had the Ultraview or didn't have Recaro's, but I had not considered a coupe or Vagon before. Thanks !

Hmm, this one did not have an ultraview, but it looks like a standard sunroof:

I'm thoroughly obsessed with the Vagon.

Here's the only used one I've been able to find during the past month I've spent relentlessly searching online.

Fits all your criteria (Manual, Recaros, no roof), but it's silver.

The seller ain't negotiating at all, sent them a decent offer (I think), the answer was NO. I expected a counteroffer, or something. The car was on ebay too (ended yesterday), last offer was $600 above mine, and reserve not met, maybe they were waiting for that to end. Who knows. There will be others :)

I am thinking of selling my 2010 CTS-V sedan (6spd manual) if you are interested. The car just turned 25k miles, and is loaded with everything except Recaro's, suede wheel/knob and sapelle wood trim. It is black/black, new tires, Stainless Works full exhaust (headers, high flow cats, 3" exhaust), New Era CAI, and a dyno tune that produced 550 rwhp, and 533 rwtq. The car has 35% tint all around, has no front license plate holes, and all of the plastic trim pieces at the bottom/front are there and intact. If interested, let me know... classifieds over on this forum won't let me post up a new ad.

if it makes you feel any better ive been looking for an unmolested, black, no sun, auto, recaro V without luck for some time now...

rjoffe

I can keep an eye out, I have all sorts of feelers out. Black Auto should be easy, no sun and recaro are harder.

You have mileage limits ?

smackdownCTSV
01-23-12, 08:42 PM
Pricing has come down. 09s are definitely under $45K and you might find a 2011 for $50Kish now. As for the color, I said the same thing and have not regretted it. If you can't find a M6, the auto is no compromise. Many are thankful it was even offered! Which is more than can be said of the GT500 and M3.

The V has held its value remarkably well for a car that's now three model years old. It's held its value so well that I am actually wondering whether to sell and take advantage of the high resale value....essentially timing the market, so to speak.

I was fortunate to only lose $8K on my trade after having it for 3 years, 2008 SRT8 30K miles. A pretty good investment considering. I think the V will be the same if not better.

I can keep an eye out, I have all sorts of feelers out. Black Auto should be easy, no sun and recaro are harder.

You have mileage limits ?

lower the better, but +/-20k would be ideal. thanx bro!

I found mine just by googling "CTS-V". This will bring up links of dealers in you local area that have CTS-V's for sale. I ended up getting a used one but was actually looking for a new one, with titanium interior and Recaro seats. I tried ordering one, but the recaro seats were on constraint. I found the exact car I was going to order with 5K miles on it for significantly less than a new one.

A bit of feedback from InspectMyRide on a V2 I have been looking at:

Since inspectmyride only keeps things online for a bit, I have archived their results at:

How about this one Got Boost?

'09, Black, no sun, auto, recaro, 8,300 miles

This is where I found my vagon and they were great to deal with.

Not sure where you are, but I drove sight unseen from missouri and left with it.

I've been mulling over trading in or selling.

With trading in mind, I asked a friend who has access to the auctions about how 2009s were doing at the auctions as of a few days ago. This is because trade-in value plays a significant role, though not the only role, in trade in value. In the last two months, it looks like auto Vs are fetching mostly upper 30's, to low 40's for those in excellent condition. There were more in the upper 30's than low 40's, and a high-mileage (59k miles) went for $32k. Surprisingly, not many make it to the auction, and yet there seem to be a lot of 2009s available, so I guess a lot of dealers try to sell Vs on their own?

What did you see for used CTS-V's with 6spd manuals? From your numbers, it sounds like auction pricing on used 6spd manual V's would be in the $45k and up range.

No manuals were listed, unfortunately. All but one were autos and one it was not clear from the description provided what it was.

I posted mostly because of my post several up from here in which I stated that the V was keeping its value. Seems like it is keeping some value, but not as much as I thought.
