they deleted evolution green and added a new opulent blue color. Also rainsense wipers are back as well standard for the V.

There are changes but minor which are related to look only not functionality at all.

Really? I consider the Rainsense Wipers and the Side Blind Zone Alert to be more than cosmetic changes. While the Rainsence may be considered a "nice" change the Side Blind Zone Alert should have been included long ago. It alone made me wait to order my CTS-V Coupe until the 2012 model year.

You are right on this one. I miss the rainsense wipers, and the blind spot alert would be a great addition.

If people adjusted their mirrors properly, there would be no need for the blind spot alert. I adjusted my side mirrors so I have no blind spots.

Just got a "special" one in a few days ago. First thing we noticed is they (Cadillac/GM) changed the traction control button. Don't ask why that is the first thing we noticed... We will post up if there are any other changes once we start getting into it a little bit deeper.

The paint process has been improved. I don't have specifics but it results in less orange peel.

Are you kidding? Most people can't be bothered to put down the cell-phone let alone check their blind spots before merging.

That would be the first thing I noticed, there's just a TON of peel. I was about to ask my dealer about it, but then noticed it wasent just my car, it was all of them. Which just left me :hmm:

Exactly. Which is why manufacturers are putting in this unnecessary tech. I'd better stop before I get to ranting......

I agree with the mirror adjustments when I am going down the highway. Too many people want to see the side of their car in the side view mirrors and if they just widened them out they would see what was in their "blind spot". However, when backing out of a parking spot with the ever increasing number of vans, trucks, SUV's or Mini Vans on each side of you the sensors are a great addition. Just my $.02 worth.
