Any pics of a CTS-V sedan in the new blue? I want to order a Blue one with the black wheels and black interior, but would like to see one first. I was on the fence about the yellow calipers. All options except the Ultra View Roof.

Thanks!!!

With Opulent Blue I'd go with the Light Titanium interior, not black.

Thanks. I saw that one, but still not a V with black wheels.

I went to go order one today, but Recaro's are on restriction now... :bigroll:

I saw the blue in person at the dealership and didn't fall in love with it like I thought I would... for some reason it just seemed off on such a big car? Maybe it needed more "pop".... can't describe it. I really wanted to order the color as well, but instead went with white. I'd go look at in person for sure, make sure you like it. I might look better outside as well... they were willing to pull the car out for me, but I told them not to bother.

That. I originally thought I wanted Opulent Blue but after seeing it (outside no less) it just doesn't strike me as a good color for the V.

I wanted to get the blue/black wheels/black interior/ yellow calipers then all chrome would be wrapped with the 3M dynok (carbon fiber look) and then black the grill out. I was hoping the blue looked like the sonic blue from Ford. I had a 2003 Cobra in Sonic Blue and it was AMAZING!!!

I considered it but two blue cars is too much.

The blue is great. I think it will look awesome with the black wheels and yellow calipers. Don't hesitate. I wouldn't get the titanium interior. Had it on my last CTS and while it looked great and stayed cool in the summer, it tended to show the dirt. Black interior will look great with the blue car.

I think with the black wheels, ALL the chrome on the car needs to be blacked out.

With chrome wheels, I would DEFINITELY keep the chrome trim.

looks terrible with black wheels and yellow calipers. Looks like it is riding on spares

I am a huge fan of blue.

I don't think this blue is a bad color...very striking...but would prefer a darker blue, personally.

Amongst others, I've own or have owned a few blue cars: carbon metallic M5, a couple of blue Suburbans, a capri blue Mercedes GL450, GL550, and E55, a midnight blue Ford GT, 3 sapphire blue Gen II Viper GTS's and a Viper blue Gen III Viper Coupe (not dark blue but still love it).

So...yeah...I like dark blue.

I won't be switching to black wheels on mine. The dealer sent the calipers out to a race shop here in Indy. They disassembled the calipers and sent them to Indy Powdercoating then the race shop reassembled them.

I have made my mine up to go with the Blue with the POLISHED wheels. No black wheels and no yellow calipers, looks to ricer. Thanks guys for all the info.
