Just took delivery yesterday and am very happy i waited and didnt buy whatever was on the lot. TGC, Auto, Recaros, Graphite wheels, yellow calipers and safron interior. Been fun so far, car feels really heavy low speeds though. Will find out how it does at the track tonight if it doesnt rain. Think my only compaint is that there are to many damn buttons lol.

How long did it take for you to get the car after you put in the order? I'd go easy on it for the first 600 miles or so if I were you. I have a theory so many of these cars end up with rear end noise because too much torque is applied to the rear ends before the ring and pinion is properly worn in.

yup straight to the track, things need to get worn in how your going to drive it and if there is gonna be a failure its going to be under heavy loads. Would rather have it happen earlier then later, no different then if you gunned it up an on ramp. Itll have 150 miles on it by the time i get there, if theres no failure so far then it should be fine. Will work on getting some more outside and inside shots, looking like rain right now for the track so if i make will come back with the results later tonight.

Took 2.5 months, ordered july 16th delivered on sept 27th.

Good luck. Good looking car. I still say you'd be better off giving it a little easy street time rather than tracking it right away. Sounds like it may work out that way anyhow with the rain, not sure where you are, but it sure is stormy in New England. I have a Tennis Tournament tomorrow am and am getting nervous.

You might want to eventually Plasti-dip the front grill black as that will blend in better with your wheels.

2.5 months??? By the time I get my car it'll be winter and time to put it away. That sucks. I ordered my wagon in august.

Run it like you want, the car will be fine. And if it's not, carry it back to the dealer for repairs.
Looks great by the way!

Already ordered along with some trimbrite. After that black lugnuts, tint and some floor mats. Gotta sell some stuff off my GTO before i do any performance mods.

Thanks man, not really sure why everyone is so terrified on here. Thing isnt made of glass and if there is a failure thats why theres a warranty.

Well didnt make it to the track on friday so the car will get a few more miles on it before it has a chance to go. Car gets lots of attention, have come out of places twice to see people walking around it, been fun answering questions, like having my GTO all over again and people thinking it was a modded grand prix lol.

Looks like u got my car! That's funny, I sold my '06 GTO earlier this year to move up to a V. Waiting to order my '13 TG in Feb since it'll b sitting winters anyway. +1 on doing the leather wheel....one less thing to clean and maintain.

Have heard on the CTS-V section of a performance change at 1500 miles...would be something to pay attention to.

Very nice car! & congrats!

Is that a hearse just beyond your car in the first picture??

Hearses are Cadillac's and they need dealer support and service too. Hey, just thought of something, how about a Cadillac Hearse V model. It could get ya to the grave a lot faster :)

I don't think the passenger in the hearse is in much of a hurry anymore
