    Smile Christmas is coming early for me!

    Hey guys, I'll be picking up my 2008 Platinum STS-V sometime tomorrow and I can't wait. I bet I won't sleep a wink tonight. For the last four years I've loved every minute I spent in my 04 CTS-V but now I need a little more room for the rest of the family. I know I'll miss the stick but I still can't wait to drive my new V off the lot tomorrow.

    I also want to give a big thanks to Eric Sievers at Lindsay Cadillac. I didn't end up buying from him but he helped my find one a little closer to home!

    Well, they were bringing my car in from out of state and it got back late so they didn't have time to prep it for me and now I won't be getting it until Monday. I did get to see it though and now I think I'm even more excited about my new V than my kids are about Christmas. Is that possible?

    Re: Christmas is coming early for me!

    Congrats! I bought mine on a Saturday and they wanted to keep it until Monday when thier guy was in to prep it before letting me take it off the lot... I was like NO WAY, i'm way too excited and want to play with my new toy NOW! I'm the customer who owns the car, so what could they say? I just had to bring it back sometime the following week so they could "prep" it. No idea what they do to prep it, as it seemed good to me while driving, but I do think i remember them saying they made sure all the software throughout the car (nav unit, pcm, etc..) was up to date.

    At least your dealer is open on Monday to prep it for you... All the dealers around here seem to be closed on Monday due to Christmas Eve

    Congrats mate, car looks great

    Now I would say get a Clear Bra on the front while it's still new.
