    First Caddy... Why did I wait so long!

    Hello all... I feel like I am in a very elite club since I purchased my 2012 CTS sedan. I live in SW Florida and for the past several months I looked, and could not locate a Diamond White, Cashmere/cocoa, sunroof, luxury CTS sedan with less than 10k on the clock locally. Not too much to ask for in the sunshine state... or so I thought. Well, in just 10 minutes on AutoTrader I found 7 in the US. One that caught my attention was very nicely equipped and had 6,230 miles on it, located at Hendrick Cadillac in Carey, NC. A few phone calls to their awesome sales staff and a quick plane ride later, I was at the dealership and... lord!!!... what a beautiful car was sitting there waiting for me. Pictures did not do it justice. It was (is) flawless! The car is nicely equipped with all the luxury model stuff plus rear spoiler, nav/infotainment, driving lights, tinted glass, additional set of rubber CTS mats, spare tire and sunroof. The 11 hour ride home was the perfect bonding session for the CTS and I.

    I look forward to running up the miles in style. This is one beautiful car. See you on the forums...

    Hello and welcome Frank! What is the engine? 3.6 or 3.0 liter?

    It is good to see that Cadillac is bringing new people to the brand. Do you mind if I ask what were your previous cars? I am asking because I like to know whether Cadillac is attracting previous European/Asian car owners or owners of other domestic brands.
