Bought my V last month came home today and found a box at my front door? It is called FIRSTS..Came with a small flashlight,box of altoids? Small microfiber towel,poster of constellations and a bottle of facial spray? Very strange package of gifts? On all 3 of my Vettes I also received gifts, But more tailored to the Vette, DVDs and a nice leather book of the vette. Anyway just looking to see if anyone here also received this package?

I hate I bought a used one now. I sure hope some ones used facial spray and empty box of altoids doesn't show up at my doorstep.

I didn't get one. Six months after I bought my V, the wifey bought an SRX. She got the box, go figure...

Mine didn't have a flashlight. It had a mini telescope instead...which I thought was pretty cool until I realized it came broken.

Maybe Cadillac marketing had a bunch of swag they didn't know what else to do with.
My company has done that. Freebies from trade shows we didn't use up, so we just started throwing them in with shipments.

Ate the Altoids on day 1. Tried the eye piece for about 2 min then gave it to the kids. The black cloth is in my glovebox for quick dustings.

I have to start off that I am a fan of cadillac and GM of late since my firsat of three Vs, a 2009 sedan.

I did think that this "Firsts" thing was extremely lame. Hardly any of it was useful to me and it seems like a huge waste of resources.

Plus the Altoids really got me thinking .........:bonkers::bonkers:

Never received the "Firsts" goodie bag, even though I'm on my third Cadillac. But I have received some other really :cool: stuff.
I figure I could use the Sharpie if I ever meet Johnny O'Connell, the matches if I start smoking again, and the deck of cards to play solitaire with while sitting in my dealer's customer lounge.
'Lame' would be an accurate description. :helpless:

Maybe the "Firsts" package only goes to those folks that just purchase their "first" Cadillac? I know I'm one of them.

Oh well it was a guess since OldRoadDawg never got one.

When I purchased my 2005 CTS-V they sent me a Bose Wave Radio/CD player with the Cadillac logo on the top. Still have it, still works great!
