a 2003 Cadillac CTS (27k miles)!!!!!!!!!!! i bought it today. i will try and get pics of it here at work on a day im not busy. we talked them down from 28,995 to 24,600. yeah, i gotta good deal. i almost got an Escalade EXT but the payment was going to be 450 a month and i didnt want to pay that much. oh Sal, i asked the floor manager (good friend of my dads, thats why i got such a good deal) if they would tell people that bought new/ used Caddies to tell them about Cadillacowners.com and he agreed. they started today when a guy went and test drove a brand new STS. so maybe we will get more members. (i also had some pre typed www.cadillacforums.com (http://www.cadillacforums.com) peices of paper i stuck to the windshields).

Wow! Congratulations! You've got a nice car! The Fleetwood was awesome but there's nothing like driving a practically new Cadillac! Nice going. Oh and thanks for promoting the forum at the dealership!! That's very nice of you! :)

Nice choice man. I think only the 3.2L 220hp V6 was available in 03 which is still good for 0-60 in 7 sec, you get the 5 speed?

I'd buy a cadillacforums sticker to compliment my racingsouthwest.com sticker.

Congrats on the car and good luck with it. What kind of deal would of you got to get the payment on the EXT at 450.00? I hope that was a lot of money down cause I pay almost double that for mine. :hmm:

I was thinking the same thing, it must have been an 02' or I would not have passed that up at any cost.

it was an 02. i could have put 2k down on it but the payment was still gonna be 405, so i didnt go with it. i really didnt want to pay that much.

pics coming soon. as most of you know i can only take pics at work and our camera was loaned out to another department. hopefully tomorrow or Saturday i will get the pics posted. it is black with grey interior/ black inserts. only 27k miles on it!

Sal no problem, the dealership is actually checking out the site. the finance manager (my dad knows him too) said that he has promoted it twice so far.

no it is automatic. i was actually leaving cause what i was looking at didnt work out and what i was originally going to buy i really didnt want. when i was walking out some elderly couple had just traded in their (now my) CTS for a new DHS. so we talked and i got a real good deal on it.

Supernice CAR!! I'd like to hear more about what your Doctor friend said about it, and more of his "driving impressions," etc.

Adam

yeah its got xenon lights. it has the luxury sport package and a whole bunch of other options.

Ralph- doc Wright loved the car and he is considering buying a V. this pushed him to the point of him actually going out and getting one (well he hasnt yet) but is planning on it. i told him about the STS V and he said he didnt like things supercharged. he said raw power was his kinda thing. that is why he liked my Fleetwood so much. he always said man for only 185 hp that thing can fly! (he drove her once). hey did you get my e mail? Ash finally e mailed me back! i think i copy and pasted what she wrote.

Ralph

hey man, i told her about you ;) ! so what if she knows where im from.

he drives a Miata, a Subaru something nor other that i wrote a ticket on becuase it was parked in a doctors space and i didnt know it was his, and a Ferrari F 40.

Ralph

She's very patriotic. :shhh: :sneaky:

A doctor that drives a Miata?? :hmm:

so am i but i dont care if she is from Canada.

that is his daily driver. his wife drives the Subaru andon weekends (sometimes) he drives the Ferrari (but not to work, he cruises up here or just drives around in it). he let me drive it once (cause i let him drive the Fleetwood, man was that ever fun!)

Geesh, with that kinda money you could have bought like a 95 or 96, and hot-rodded the hell out of it, 383 stroker for $4,000.00, performance tranny for $1,200.00, gears, exhaust, ecu reprogram, :yawn: but congrats on the car! Ya picked it for a reason, and it looks a hell of a lot nicer then the Fleetwood, to bad we cant have the best of both worlds...

Great buy, I like the CTS.
I would have probably got a CTS if they made a 2 door cabriolet. Got a BMW instead.
I think they are miss a big part of the market by not have a ragtop

thanks guys! the story is not over though. i will once again own a Fleetwood, just a matter of time. i know God has a plan for all this, (how do you think i could have gotten a CTS making 20k a year?) and i am sure He will once again bring me another Fleetwood. im going on His clock, He'll lead me to it eventually.

thanks man (or woman) but you should give God his due. im glad it all worked out too, and i dont know your religious preferences (if any) but you cant tell me there isnt any possible way a friggin security officer getting 20k a year can possibly get a car like that without God on his side working things for him!

she's running good. perfect infact. had a few races and i aint lost yet hehe. i dont get as many looks as i did in the Fleetwood though. i am still looking for another one but i should probably end that search cause it is going to be a few months before i could try it again. i just posted in the CTS forum a second ago to let them know i got me one. no i aint going no were. i couldnt leave you guys behind (even though i am better than all of you now, ahahahaha :nono: ) i dont forget the little people.
