2012 Raven, Ebony/Ebony, manual, sunroof, Recaros, Satin graphite wheels with yellow calipers, wood trim, etc.

I'm using USAA and their price is $4399 under invoice. This will be my daily driver although I have two other cars. I doubt there won't be a day I won't want to take it. this is my first Caddy and most expensive and highest hp car in my life and at 45, I guess it's time.

Do you mean under MSRP or under invoice on the price? Because if it's really under INVOICE, that is a smoking deal, and much better than the prices I see on the USAA website.

Sorry - I meant MSRP. I went to a car broker who was only offering $2000 under MSRP.

OK, that makes me feel better. I ordered a '12 Wagon using USAA and didn't get that deal, so I'm glad to know I wasn't ripped off!

It's been making me nuts deciding if I should settle for a used 2011 with what is available or get what I want. Lots of automatics but I think I would regret it. There's a manual in So Cal but no sunroof and the Painted wheels.

I didn't have that worry with the Wagon; there was only one single M6 in the country (in NJ), and it was a color I didn't want (black). So I had to order. It was fun to be able to spec the car out exactly as I wanted, and the USAA deal is nice because you don't have to worry about the price...you know you're getting a good one.

I would think you'd get a better price on the '11s, but if it's not what you want, then is it really worth it? Also, the '12s will be a model year newer when the time comes to sell it.

If you can afford the freight for new, do it; particularly if you keep your cars for a long time. I keep cars for 8+ years so I want to feel good about the buy every time I look at it.

My local dealer said they do not honor USAA pricing for limited production vehicles. Is that a load of crap? I have a dealer 90 miles away willing to do it.

I heard that from a dealer in Austin, but when I pushed back a bit they "checked with their manager" and found out it did apply to all vehicles.

If you can see the vehicle on the USAA website and get a recommended dealer, it's my understanding they have to honor it.

I don't know if the dealer in Austin was part of the program as they didn't come up in SA as a dealer (the two SA dealers did), but I imagine they are, as there aren't many Caddy dealers up there.

Welcome to the club; haven't seen too many V's running around OC since I got my '09 in March.

It sucks that most dealers in the San Fernando Valley and Ventura Counties are so lousy that James has to call around to find one to deliver to who won't charge me an arm and a leg just to prep it. Most wouldn't even call me back to sell me one.

Go with the sedan, you won't regret it. It looks better. Bieber tainted the coupe.

Yes, I know. I ran into the same thing.

I saw that but I already ordered and I want a coupe.

The coupe is by far the sickest looking V out there. I get stares and people taking pictures of my V Coupe EVERYDAY! Never fails! And that's here in L.A. where there are exotics on every corner!

Your vehicle as of 2:25AM EST October 21, 2011 was on a rail car passing through Gibson, IN en route to Bunnin Cadillac.* No additional ETA info was available.

He also got me a sick rate on my loan.

I keep telling everyone on this forum that James Quinn is the only way to go. I wouldn't dream of getting my next Cadillac from anyone else. I have gotten my last 3 new Cadillacs through him and all in the last 2 years.
