I just put a deposit on it.

It's a GM buyback, which is fine with me....California makes that too easy.

It's been de-badged, which sucks. I will have to get new badges.

Looks good. Have the dealership buy them and throw them in on the deal. Make sure you put them on! Who on Earth would debadge it??? Ugh.

Thanks!

I'm going to have the local Caddy dealership inspect it before I sign off.

First mod right there. I've never seen an uglier sticker.

Do you guys recognize the exhaust? I'm 99% sure it's aftermarket.

Did they disclose what it was bought back for?

I'm not sure if it was anything specific. It had a motor swap, a dif swap, rear shocks replaced....

It has aftermarket exhaust.

Any ideas on what this is? Looks like a bit of a hack job.

i dont know the car but check for warranty because this is what they said:

REMEMBER EVERY VEHICLE SOLD AT GREEN NISSAN COMES WITH A FREE 1 YEAR MAINTENANCE PLUS MEMBERSHIP THAT INCLUDES FREE OIL CHANGES, TIRE ROTATION, CAR WASH, WINDSHEILD REPAIR AND COURTESY SHUTTLE SERVICE.

not a warranty. and this:

Before purchasing this vehicle, it is your responsibility to address any and all differences between information on this website and the actual vehicle specifications and/or any warranties offered prior to the sale of this vehicle.

not trying to be a downer but i dont think it has one, do you know through Cadillac or GM that it does and will and can be transferred?

i've seen a used 2012 cts-v on a cadillac lot and it was as-is. i didnt understand that. but just please make sure you have your t's crossed and i's dotted. and don't hesitate to negotiate. that car has a good proffit margin to work with so don't be afraid to deal your azz off..... warrantys, tires, badges,they should pay for inspection costs and at least a 6 to 12% cost reduction.

Thanks Dave!

I confirmed with Cadillac that it has a warranty. The bigger issue is that this might alter the warranty on import to Canada, not to mention any emissions laws it might impact. Probably can't risk it. There are other units out there.

There is too much story on this car for me. I would pass. Plenty of cleaner V's out there.
