    After ages of searching, I Finally found my dream car!

    OK so maybe not my dream car, but the car I was looking for at the moment... and it was tough.

    I went to the Cadillac dealer to order one, having no idea that I could nolonger order the 3.6L DI with manual. Once I found that out, I asked him if anyone had them in inventory in the entire country, and there were none

    So here I am looking for pretty much the rarest form of the caddy (I'm sure there are rarer), I wanted a CTS 3.6L DI Manual transmission with the performance package. I also wanted at least the seat package, heated seats, and sunroof.

    Once I was stuck looking at used cars, I really wanted an 09, because I wanted Onstar, Bluetooth, and rainsense wipers, and those were the only year you could get all. After 6 months of looking, I finally gave up and was going to settle for a non DI that had everything else I wanted except rainsense, because even THAT was rare.

    Then right as I was about to leave to the dealership to get it (it was 9 hours away), I looked up autotrader to get the address for the dealership that I had talked to the day before, and guess what showed up not 5 miles from me- The exact car I wanted to the T. The color, the options, the condition, the price- everything.

    I bought the car the day the owner listed it!

    Pretty excited. Fully loaded with every option you can get, performance package, luxury, nav, bluetooth, rainsense, ventilated seats, with a 3.6L DI and a manual transmission in black on black. Now its sitting pretty right here on my driveway and I couldn't be happier that I actually was able to track one down and I finally have it.

    Now I'm here, and I look forward to meeting all of you!

    I also own a 3 series BMW M-Sport and a Corvette Z06. My wife likes to drive the 3 series so I needed a new Daily Driver, which the CTS fits perfectly. I also have a chevy avalanche, some classic vehicles and bikes.

    Who says a Cadillac doesn't make people's dreams come true?

    Nice to hear you found the exact car you were looking for. I know the feeling.

    Happened to me twice where I had to look for the exact car, except $$$ was my main constraint!

    Enjoy the caddy.
